What Is Microneedling? Why It Works And The Real Benefits.
Microneedling can be a very intimidating procedure at first, but I assure you, it is scarier than it looks. Microneedling is a treatment that works by creating controlled microscopic injuries in the surface of the skin that jump-start collagen production and the skin’s repair process, creating more youthful, vibrant skin. As the body goes to work healing the skin, collagen production is stimulated, dead skin cells are shed, and healthy skin is revealed.
The many benefits of microneedling will target skin texture, acne scars, fine lines & wrinkles, and an uneven complexion.
Prior to the treatment- We will apply a topical numbing to ensure the process is pain free. During the treatment- you will feel minimal discomfort and we will walk you through the process and check in with you along the way. After the treatment- Your skin will most likely be pink and that color will dissipate within a few days. Your skin maybe become super dry a few days post treatment but that is to be expected as your skin is shedding old skin cells at an accelerated rate. We will provide detailed home care instructions for optimal results. Keeping your skincare gentle and simple post treatment are key to the healing process.
Keep in mind- Results are not immediate. Although many clients seem to have a more rejuvenated appearance a few days following microneedling, it takes time to produce collagen. Collagen building typically takes two to six months. Best results are achieved with a series of microneedling sessions.
