WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING GOOD FOR?
Microneedling is a facial treatment used to improve skin’s texture and firmness. It also helps with reducing the size of pores, acne scars, age spots, and can be used on multiple parts of the body to treat stretch marks. The treatment uses a device with fine needles that create tiny punctures in the skin, and this triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. We use a numbing cream beforehand, so the procedure is virtually painless.
What can I expect from a Microneedling Treatment
The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 48 hours. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with zinc based sunblock. The use of mineral makeup is recommended after procedure.
What benefits does Microneedling have on the Skin?
Microneedling improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. It also stimulates tissue regeneration, disfiguring scars, especially acne scars can be improved as new collagen fibers elevate the depressed scar tissue with the periphery skin.
What should I avoid on my Skin after Treatment?
To ensure the right healing environment, for 2-3 days do not use AHA’s (glycolic Acid), retinol, acidic or “active” ingredients. Exposure to sun should also be avoided or zinc based sunblock should be used.
