Micro-needling is used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues.
This procedure creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. Benefits from Micro-needling include, reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture and softer, younger- looking skin with fewer signs of aging. It can improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, acne scars and traumatic scars.
The frequency of micro-needling sessions will vary with the intensity of the treatment. Mild treatments may be repeated every 2 to 4 weeks. Deep treatments for scars may be repeated every 4 to 6 weeks. Approximately 48 to 72 hours after the treatment you'll have an increase in collagen production. It takes approximately four weeks to see noticeable results. Micro needling results are typically very long lasting as new collagen will last for several years.
MICRONEEDLING POST TREATMENT
Skin may be red for a few days post-treatment. This is perfectly normal. It may feel like you have a sunburn. Typically your skin will feel back to normal approximately 3-4 days after treatment. You will experience some skin peeling. Those looking to treat deep wrinkles, stretch marks, severe sun damage or scarring may need multiple microneedling treatments. To ensure the safety of your skin, treatments are recommended four weeks apart. This time period allows your body to repair and rejuvenate before the next treatment.
