Microneedling is a minimally invasive medical aesthetic treatment where tiny, sterile needles superficially pierce the epidermis creating thousands of micro-channels. This results in a breakdown of old, hardened tissue and kicks your body’s natural healing response into overdrive. Microneedling causes an accelerated production of fibroblasts, growth factors, collagen and elastin — in other words, a whole lotta goodness!
Derived from ancient acupuncture and mesotherapy techniques, microneedling is quickly becoming the treatment of choice for many skin conditions and concerns. It offers an array of benefits including restoring the skin’s resiliency, reducing pore size, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, eliminating acne and acne scars, tightening and rejuvenating the tone of skin, fading stretch marks, getting rid of sun damage and hyperpigmentation and reducing vascular redness, such as telangiectasia/couperose and rosacea.
What Are The Benefits?
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments required will depend on your individual skin type and concern. Generally, best results come from 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. A custom treatment plan that's right for you will be advised at your consultation.
Is It Painful?
A topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area before procedure to make it more comfortable.
What Precautions Should I Take Pre and Post?
What Can I Expect After My Treatment?
After your microneedling session you may notice redness, some tingling and the sensation of heat, similar to that of mild sunburn. This will subside within 24-48 hours. The real results become evident after a week, with improvement in skin tone and texture. Effects on pigmentation and scarring will continue to improve with every treatment.
