Who is an ideal candidate for microneedling?
Microneedling is a great procedure for lax skin with a lack of firmness and/or has fine lines and wrinkles (including upper lip lines). It can significantly improve the texture of skin with acne scars as well. Microneedling can be performed on all skin types and colours.
What can I expect after a microneedling treatment?
There is usually a bit of redness (erythema) for one or two days after your treatment. By the next day, your skin may be a bit pink, but you’ll be able to use make-up and no one will know that you’ve just had a facial rejuvenation treatment!
How many treatments will I need?
Most people typically choose three to six treatments spaced a month or so apart. If your lifestyle and diet promotes optimal cell function, results can last up to 2 years. Maintenance treatments can be performed as often as needed.
Does microneedling hurt?
We will apply a prescription numbing cream before your treatment. Microneedling uses very tiny needles. There are a couple of sensitive areas, however, the treatment is generally very easily tolerated. Many people actually enjoy the "massage like" sensation of the pen.
