What is Micro Needling?
Micro Needling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin care procedure where the use of needles punctures the epidermis and forces super hydrating hyaluronic acid serum deep into the skin. This creates a controlled wound at the dermal-epidermal layer. Why would we want to “injure” the skin? This controlled wound encourages the skin to produce a large amount of collagen; this is what keeps the skin plump and supple. A series of this service can be as effective as a laser resurfacing treatment without the down time, risks or costs associated with a laser treatment.
Does Micro Needling hurt?
Your provider will apply a topical numbing agent 30 minutes prior to the treatment. You may still feel the process, but it is very tolerable; it is most painful over bony areas such as the forehead and chin. The depth of needle penetration can also be adjusted to your tolerance.
What will I look like after my Micro Needling treatment?
I looked like a tomato after my first treatment for about 12 hours. You will definitely want to plan your service on a day you don’t have anything important. The next morning, following my treatment, my skin tone was mostly back to normal; there were a few areas of splotches, as well as a few dots where the needles had penetrated. By the second day, my fine lines were drastically reduced and my skin looked extremely hydrated and supple.
What are the benefits of Micro Needling?
Obviously, as with anything, results vary. Most people don’t see full results from the first treatment until about 28 days later, as it takes that long for the collagen to produce and plump the skin. To get full results, it is recommended to do 3-6 treatments at 4 week intervals, depending on the desired outcome. Studies have shown improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, scars, sun damage, pore size, stretch marks, firmness and overall tone and texture of the skin. It can be done anywhere on the body. The best part is that this service is the gift that keeps on giving as your body will produce higher rates of collagen for up to a year after a series.
Who is Micro Needling safe for?
This is one of the most exciting parts about Micro Needling compared to other resurfacing treatments, as it is safe for all skin tones. The risk of adverse reactions is much lower than that of a laser treatment with similar results.
How long does a Micro Needling session take?
The duration of your appointment really depends on the area being treated, as well as your tolerance for the treatment. Most appointments take about 30 minutes for the numbing process and 30 minutes for the treatment.
