Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure where several sterile micro needles puncture the skin creating tiny micro holes that trigger the skin’s repair system to create new collagen and elastin fibers.
The goal of the procedure is to start your body’s healing process by sending collagen and elastin to patch up the tiny injuries. Collagen helps fill in and smooth out wrinkles.
Does the procedure hurt?
A numbing cream will be applied over the skin before the Microneedling begins. You may
experience some minor pain after the procedure and your skin may be red for a few days.
How long does it take to heal?
It may take days or even weeks to completely heal, depending on how deep the needles
pierce your skin. However, unless otherwise instructed you are free to return to your
regular activities and wear cosmetics 24 hours after your treatment.
How many sessions will I need?
Depending on the results you are looking for, you will likely need a follow up treatment
session or two when trying to smooth wrinkles or other texture issues and improve skin
More extensive issues such as stretch marks and scaring may require between six and
eight treatment sessions.
