Micro-needling treatments are gaining popularity as a “must have” skin rejuvenation treatment in aesthetic medicine. The reason it is becoming so popular is due to the fact that skin improves very rapidly even from a single treatment! Micro-needling treatments are effective in improving the appearance of the following skin conditions:
- Sun Damage
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles
- Acne Scarring
- Enlarged Pores
- Rough Texture
How many treatments are recommended?
Generally, we recommend the following:
Rejuvenation: 4-6 treatments that are 4 weeks apart
Acne scarring: 6 treatments that are 6 weeks apart
How should I prepare for a micro-needling treatment?
For optimal results, we will outline an appropriate skin care regimen to strengthen your skin in order to ensure the best possible results. Your regimen will begin approximately 4 weeks prior to beginning your treatments.
Is the treatment painful?
For minimal needle depths, treatments are relatively painless. Deeper treatments require a topical anesthetic cream for approximately 15 minutes.
How long should it take before I see results?
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin within a few days. Visible changes develop over the course of several weeks. The skin’s appearance continues to improve for up to 6 months as collagen production continues, especially when combined with the recommended skin rejuvenation products.
Is there any downtime after treatments?
Generally no, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment.
