Frequently Asked Questions

What is Microneedling and how does is work?

It is a skin treatment procedure that involves an electric skin-needling device. The device contains 12 very fine needles. It is used during to break down old scar tissue and push skin cell regeneration. Cell production leads to the creation of new layers of elastin and collagen fibers, which leads to improved blood flow in the skin.The device penetrates upper layers of the skin to create tiny needle wounds. This signals the body to respond by producing collagen and elastin fibers. As a result, the skin becomes fuller, reducing the appearance of scars, lines, and wrinkles.

What conditions can be treated or improved with Medical Micro-Needling?

Some of the conditions that Medical Microneedling is known to improve include: acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, skin texture and pore size, and stretch marks.

What does the procedure involve?

It begins with cleaning and numbing the skin.  A small pen with 12 tiny needles is used to create tiny wounds in the skin. The microperforations allow skincare products to be easily absorbed and more effective. Vitamin-C serum or Hyaluronic acid are used after the procedure to hydrate, heal and protect the skin. 

What is the down time after Medical Micro-Needling treatment?

Most people will notice redness and mild swelling similar to slight sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be slight pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. Skin will be noticeably smoother and more radiant within a week or two. Full results will take a few months to appear as collagen remodeling occurs. Inflammation of the skin is very temporary and reduces greatly within a  few hours. It may remain slightly pink for up to 48 hours after treatment. Using hyaluronic acid after the procedure can help reduce inflammation, and sunscreen should be used to protect the skin.  Makeup use should be limited, but if needed we recommend mineral makeup.

Who is not a good candidate for the procedure?

Micro-needling is not suitable for patients who have used Accutane (isotretinoin) within the last three months, have open wounds, cuts or abrasions, have had radiation skin treatment within the last year, are suffering from any skin infection, condition, or herpes simplex in the area of concern, are pregnant or breast feeding, have any history of  keloid or hypertrophic scars or poor wound healing

What to avoid after treatment

AHAs (glycolic Acid), retinol, acidic or active ingredients should not be used for 2-3 days after treatment to allow for maximum healing. Sun exposure is not recommended after Microneedling and sunscreen should be used.
