What is microneedling?
It's a simple, minimally invasive treatment beneficial for most skin types. It breaks down scar tissue, naturally stimulates collagen production, and improves the texture and tone of the skin.
How does microneedling work?
Tiny needles from the device penetrate the skin and create thousands of micro-injuries. The body responds to this controlled wounding by producing collagen and elastin, which rejuvenates the face and fills scars and wrinkles.
What will I look like after the treatment?
Immediately after, your skin will be red and look like you have a mild sunburn. This dissipates over several hours. Sunprotection is necessary.
Does it hurt?
I use a very effective topical anesthetic to numb the skin, making the treatment very comfortable.
Can areas other that the face be treated?
Yes. Many patients choose to treat the face but abdominal stretch marks, neck, hands, and surgical/injury/trauma scars on the body can also be treated.
What skin problems can be treated with microneedling?
Microneedling is extremely effective for treating: acne scars, trauma/surgical scars, fine lines, deeper wrinkles, skin laxity, sagging skin, rough skin texture, alopecia, sun damage, open pore, stretch marks.
How many treatments will I need?
You will see results with the first treatment, with cumulative results er time. Most people need a series of 3-6 treatments, and then choose to do occasional maintenance treatments.
How often should I have treatments?
That depends on what we're treating. The initial series will consist of treatment done about every 4 weeks.
Why should I consider microneedling over a laser treatment?
The results of microneedling, especially considering the cost, are incredible. Laser treatments, have some downtime. Microneedling results are almost similar to fractionated laser treatments without the downtime.
