What is MicroNeedling?
Do you ever notice that about a week after receiving a facial, your skin starts to lose its glow and seems to revert backward? If so, you might be a good candidate for the microneedling procedure. Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment using a special tool with several micro needles in the tip which penetrate the superficial layer of the skin. These tiny, controlled injuries cause your body to produce new collagen and elastin in these affected areas. You will notice an improvement in your skin’s texture, tone and firmness. Your pore size and acne scars will also decrease significantly. Microneedling is safe for all skin types and colors.
FAQ’S HOW IS IT DONE?
Don’t worry, it’s not painful! Before the procedure a topical numbing cream is applied. This allows you to be comfortable during the treatment. Using a special tool, your aesthetician will move the needles across your entire face while infusing your skin with a growth factor serum.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Each person is different and it depends on the severity of the issue you are correcting but most people require a series of at least 3 microneedling treatments. People with severe acne scarring will require more treatments. People who take care of their skin after treatment may go 3 to 6 months before another treatment. We recommend that you take advantage of our Visia Skin Analysis so you know how many treatments your skin will require and how it is responding between treatments.
IS THERE ANY DOWN TIME OR AFTER CARE?
There is no downtime for this treatment. Your skin will be bright pink after and you may even develop tiny scabs that are not noticeable to the human eye. These will go away in a few days. You shouldn’t wear make-up after this is done. You can resume wearing make-up in 24 hours. Your provider may recommend that you use a growth factor serum after the treatment. This is usually applied every night until the serum is gone. Your provider will give you a customized after care plan based on the issue you are treating.
