Read on for information on what is micro-needling.
What is micro-needling?
Micro-needling is a non-invasive, comfortable treatment that utilizes a pen-like device containing small needle tips. The pen is moved across the face, and the needles gently pierce the skin causing minor trauma redness (erythema). Micro-needling is beneficial for anyone who has any form of scarring including acne , burns, surgical, and stretch marks. It is also a great treatment for aging skin. By causing minor “controlled damage”, the skin is stimulated to “heal” and create fresh, new, healthy collagen.
How is this procedure performed?
It is performed on an outpatient basis. A session typically begins with the aesthetician cleansing the face, prior to the application of the pen. The pen is then moved over the surface of the skin. The treatment may also include the application of either peptides, growth factors, or platelet rich plasma to intensify the results.
What do most patients feel during a procedure?
Most patients feel only minor discomfort during the procedure and a tingling, warm sensation after it is completed.
What is the recovery period like?
You will leave the office with a slightly pink face that may last 24-48 hours. Occasionally there is a small amount of flaking 2-3 days later, depending on how much prior underlying skin damage the patient has.
When will results be noticed?
Most people report a sensation of softer smoother skin within several days, but full results will take several weeks.
Are multiple treatments necessary?
The general rule for treatment results is “the more downtime, the fewer the treatments”. Micro-needling is a gentle procedure that should be performed monthly. We recommend a series of 4-6 treatments.
