Microneedling – The Art of Skin Renovation
The skin-care industry has created various numbers of treatments to fit the needs of all, or most, customers. What works for one person may not work for the other, but what if I told you about something that will? Will that change your mind about there being a one-treatment-fits-all solution?
A study performed in 2009 shows that 100%, you read that right, of microneedling participants reported significant improvements in their skin and an outstanding reduction of scars that were caused by acne or sun damage. So, the question I am asking to you now is, when are you going to try it?
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling treatments consist of extremely small and painless pinpoint pricks delivered all over the skin with a device housing multiple micro-sized needles. These micro pricks cause skin rejuvenation and reconstruction of the skin by initiating collagen production, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and scaring. Other benefits of microneedling treatments are that your skin will glow and feel tighter, as well as show reductions in hyperpigmentation.
These micro pricks will create a small puncture in the top layer of the skin, causing a natural reaction in the body that will activate the rejuvenating and healing processes from the inside out. The body will start building collagen, making your skin feel firmer and reducing the appearance of those undesirable wrinkles.
After a microneedling treatment, the skin will maximize the absorption of vitamin- and moisture-rich creams, assisting your skin’s healing process. Our professionals, who specialize in microneedling, will keep in mind how important your skin’s healing process is and perform treatments with expert care and offer guidance for optimal aftercare. We use Tensage® Growth Factor after every microneedling treatment to promote healing and speed the collagen and elastin formation, yielding you faster, longer lasting results. At the end of the day, microneedling ensures that skin care products and topical treatments will penetrate deeper into the skin, making your skin glow for a longer period of time compared to other procedures.
What are the benefits of Microneedling treatment?
Many studies and researchers have shown that microneedling is an effective and safe method to treat scars, wrinkles, and maximize skin rejuvenation treatments. A press release from the American Academy of Dermatology also states that people can expect a reduction in the “appearance of large pores, fine lines and wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks”.

What are the risks of Microneedling treatment?
Currently, research indicates no extensive risks with microneedling when being performed by a professional. On the other hand, we cannot ensure the same if this were to be done at home or by someone who is not certified to offer the treatment. When investing in your skin, it is important to know who the expert technicians are and how much they know about correctly performing this procedure. If you want to reach your skin care goals and get the elite level of care you deserve, you must schedule a consultation first. This will give you invaluable peace of mind regarding the professional with whom you are entrusting your skin.
Even though the chances of risks occurring are very low when receiving microneedling treatments, you might experience some side effects that you would want to be told of beforehand. These may include, but are not limited to: minor swelling and discomfort, redness, bruising, and possible dryness or flaking of the skin.
How to make the most out of the Microneedling Treatment
There are some products that can be beneficial for you to know about when planning your visit to get your microneedling treatment:
Recommendation BEFORE your treatment – Avoid any use of Retin-A for at least 12 hours before performing the treatment on your skin. Additionally, prolonged exposure to the sun is not recommended at least 24 hours prior to the big day.
Recommendation for AFTER your treatment – For the next 72 hours, refrain from utilizing harsh products, exfoliants, or ingredients that can irritate your skin—be gentle and give your face time to heal. We strongly suggest that you not expose your freshly treated skin to the sun for five days after the procedure, but if need be, you should not stay exposed for a long time, no more than 10–15 minutes. Lastly, no exercise or swimming for the next 48 hours, which should not be a problem to most.
