BEST CANDIDATES FOR MICRONEEDLING
OUR STATE-OF-THE-ART MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT AREAS AND SERVICES:
What To Expect
Before starting your microneedling treatment, your aesthetic provider will apply a topical numbing cream to your face to help keep you comfortable during the procedure. While you wait for the numbness to set in, you can read a book, check your emails or simply relax. Once you are ready, usually after about 30 minutes, your practitioner will pass the microneedling device over your skin. You may feel small vibrations where the device passes and occasional pricks on the skin, but because of the anesthetic, most people report feeling little discomfort during microneedling.
Recovery & Results
Immediately following your microneedling treatment, we will apply a cooling serum or lotion to your skin and you’ll be asked to avoid touching your face for the rest of the day. You may wash your face gently with water before going to sleep that night. Be sure to keep your skin moisturized over the following few days. Your face will appear slightly red for two to three days after your treatment, but it should only appear as noticeable as a minor sunburn. You may develop some slight bruising, which should fade within a few days.
Your results should gradually develop over the coming weeks and months. You may notice that your skin appears clearer and more evenly toned and that your blemishes have lightened or faded away entirely. Your skin may become firmer and plumper with diminished minor laxity or wrinkles. Most people get a series of three to six microneedling treatments, with each session building upon the results of the last.
It’s always important to protect your skin from sun damage, but especially so after any treatment that temporarily increases your skin’s sensitivity, as microneedling does. Therefore, be sure to use sunscreen every day between treatments and keep your skin clean with high-quality skin care products.
Yes. While we recommend waiting to apply makeup until your skin begins to heal, within three to five days of each treatment, you can apply makeup as soon as the following morning if you have an important appointment or event. Only use clean makeup brushes immediately following each treatment, as you skin will be highly susceptible to bacteria.
Microneedling stimulates cell regeneration both on its own and when combined with PRP. However, adding PRP to your treatment gives you the added bonus of growth factors from your own blood, which will be absorbed into the dermis. This makes for greater potential for healing, particularly when it comes to scars, stretch marks and wrinkles.
There are some home devices you can use to perform microneedling on your own skin. However, our office is able to utilize longer needles that cannot be purchased for home use, allowing for a more intensive treatment. Also, performing your own microneedling treatments can be dangerous. The needles need to be completely sterile, and a wrong move can cut or damage your skin, so we highly recommend reserving the treatment for a professional medical aesthetic environment.
Yes. For the treatment of stretch marks, microneedling can be performed almost anywhere on the body, including the stomach, thighs and décolletage. Ask your practitioner if there is another area you would like to have treated.
