What is Micro Needling?
An increasingly popular technique to improve your skin in a natural, non-surgical
way, micro needling is based off of your skin’s ability to heal
itself when it is cut. Multiple small, sterile needles on a handheld tool
are feathered lightly against the skin of treated areas, stimulating the
body’s natural healing process to build fresh, new skin.
Most patients report little to no pain during micro-needling, and a topical
anesthetic may be used to minimize discomfort. The tool is then moved
slowly along the skin of treated areas, creating microscopic cuts that
typically close within an hour. Our treatment providers are highly trained
in micro-needling, ensuring safety and accuracy.
Each session takes 30-60 minutes depending on the condition of the skin
and the area being treated. The resulting skin is firmer, smoother and
younger-looking in appearance and texture. Full results are generally
visible after 6-8 weeks and may further improve over time. Multiple sessions
may be suggested in order to maintain results over time.
What Does Micro Needling Treat?
The resurfacing effects of micro needling can effectively treat multiple
skin conditions, including:
- Acne scars
- Wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet and visible signs of aging.
- Sun damage
- Stretch marks
- In some cases, micro-needling can also help with hair loss and baldness.
Tensage® Intensive serum 40
Tensage® serum is a safe, natural growth factor that, when paired with
the exfoliating effects of micro needling, can further promote collagen
production and sustain refreshed, smooth skin. Ask our friendly medical
team for more information during your consultation.
Am I a Good Candidate for Micro Needling?
During your initial consultation, your cosmetic concerns and goals will
be evaluated and our medical staff will help you determine whether micro-needling
is appropriate for you. Generally, individuals with realistic expectations
who do not have any conflicting skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Your skin may appear red or flushed after treatment, as though you have
a mild sunburn. Treated areas may also feel tight and sensitive to the
touch, which generally subsides within 24 hours after treatment. Any residual
redness or evidence that you have had micro needling done should fade
completely within 3 days.
As micro needling does not involve injections, there is little to no risk
of adverse effects. You will be informed of all possible risks and side
effects during your initial visit.
