What is Microneedling?
For damaged or aged skin, it can be hard to find a skincare routine or treatment that shows dramatic results. Acne scarring, wrinkles, and other irritations can be hard to get rid of. Microneedling uses small needles to cause acute punctures in the skin which help induce collagen. The treatment is not too invasive or painful. The point of the tiny punctures is to trigger your skin to create new collagen and elastin which improve skin texture and firmness. It also reduces scarring, sun damage, ageing, dark spots, pore size, and stretch marks.
To get the best results, each client should go between 4-8 times in order to see the most effective results. Once you have gone several times, the results are long lasting. Each procedure is normally twenty minutes and takes up to 48 hours to recover completely. Although you can go back to work without a worry the next day.
Each treatment is lead by a specialist doctor, nurse or practitioner. Sometimes a topical ointment is used in combination for a numbing affect. Our Microneedling therapist Misti Barnes uses a special technique along with stem cells to induce major healing effects. Mesenchymal cells communicate with damaged tissues and coordinate repair and healing.
While most microneedling is done by using a Dermaroller and a Microneedling pen, Misti uses a special process that doesn’t tear your skin or cause additional causing. This treatment is a lot less invasive and gives great results!
While your skin will look red and flushed, this is a normal sign that the treatment is working. This discoloration will fade after a few days. Make sure to use SPF 30 every day for at least two weeks (you should always wear SPF so this is extra important!). Make sure to continue on with any normal skincare routines for the most effective results.
