If you want to say goodbye to sagging skin, dullness or wrinkles, microneedling may be perfect for you! By harnessing the body’s natural healing response, microneedling can kickstart collagen and elastin production for brighter, smoother skin with a 60-minute treatment. Best of all, this minimally invasive treatment doesn’t require extensive downtime.
Let’s dive a little deeper into microneedling:
How does microneedling work?
As we grow older, our skin’s production of collagen and elastin starts to slow down. Without these two proteins, the skin can appear more dulled and wrinkled. The power of microneedling comes from its ability to stimulate the replenishment of collagen and elastin through the skin’s healing response. Superficial and controlled puncturing of the skin creates thousands of tiny micro-channels, leading to a dramatic increase in collagen production as the skin heals. This new, healthy layer of skin replaces the damaged layer, leaving you with a vibrant complexion and diminished skin concerns like wrinkles and acne scars.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
Thanks to this tried-and-true technology, you can experience younger-looking skin with little to no downtime. Treatments on the face and neck usually take around an hour, with brighter, more youthful skin appearing gradually in the weeks and months following your session.
Microneedling can help treat:
● Wrinkles and fine lines
● Loose or crepey skin
● Mild acne scars
● Stretch marks
● Uneven skin tone
How long do results last?
You can expect your improvements to last for about three to five months. For optimal results, we typically recommend a series of three microneedling treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. Giving your skin ample time to heal between sessions will ensure ideal skin-renewing results while avoiding risks associated with overuse.
How can I protect my results?
It’s important to pay attention to your skin as it heals. Your necessary downtime depends on the intensity of your treatment — side effects may include redness, swelling and dryness, all of which will subside within a few hours to a few days. As your skin’s surface returns to its usual appearance, collagen continues to grow in the sub-dermal layers. Be sure to keep the treated area clean; avoid sweating, swimming and exposing skin to heat and sun in the first week following your treatment. To protect your investment for the long-term, we recommend medical-grade skin care products to keep your skin in peak condition through the recovery process and beyond — during your personal consultation, we’ll help you determine the best skincare regime to keep you glowing strong.
