What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling treatments, often known as collagen induction therapy, uses a specialized device equipped with fine needles to create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin. This process initiates your body’s natural healing mechanisms, promoting collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are the hallmarks of young, healthy skin, and their levels naturally decrease as we age.

A typical session may include the application of a gentle numbing agent for comfort, followed by the microneedling treatment itself, and concludes with a soothing serum to enhance your skin’s repair process. The result? A smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance that lasts!

The Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling is an incredibly versatile skin care treatment which uses tiny needles to encourage your body to naturally produce new collagen. The result is long-lasting skin tightening, smaller pores, and less visible skin blemishes such as acne scars, wrinkles, and fine lines.

  • Improves Skin Texture: Microneedling smooths the skin’s surface by promoting the regeneration of skin cells.
  • Reduces Wrinkles & Fine Lines: The treatment boosts collagen and elastin production, helping to maintain skin elasticity and reduce signs of aging.
  • Minimizes Pore Size: By stimulating collagen production in and around your pores, microneedling makes pores appear smaller and less noticeable.
  • Reduces Scars: Microneedling is particularly effective for diminishing the appearance of acne scars and other types of non-keloidal scars.
  • Enhances Skin Tone: Microneedling helps to even out skin tone and reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation and age spots.
  • Enables Better Absorption of Skincare Products: The micro-channels created by the needles allow for deeper penetration of skincare products, enhancing their effectiveness.
  • Treats Stretch Marks: Microneedling can be used anywhere on the body and is great for reducing the visibility of your stretch marks!
  • Natural Skin Rejuvenation: Because microneedling uses your body’s own healing mechanisms, this is a highly effective natural skin rejuvenation technique.
  • Suitable for All Skin Types: Microneedling is safe for all skin types, including darker skin tones and for those with sensitive skin.
  • Quick Recovery Time: Most people experience very minimal downtime, making it a convenient option even when you have a busy schedule.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production, which can improve skin texture and tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimize acne scars, and help with hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone. It can also enhance the effectiveness of skincare products by improving their absorption.

Do you offer collagen induction therapy?

Yes! Collagen induction therapy is just another name for microneedling.

How many sessions of microneedling do you recommend?

Typically, we recommend a series of 3-6 treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results. However, the exact number of sessions depends on your individual needs and goals, such as treating deep scars, stretch marks, or achieving comprehensive skin rejuvenation. Your esthetician will be able to explain the process to you and recommend a customized treatment plan.

What can I expect during a microneedling treatment?

During the treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to minimize discomfort. The microneedling device will then be used to create tiny punctures in your skin, stimulating the healing process. The session typically takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the treatment area.

Is microneedling safe for sensitive skin?

Yes, microneedling can be safely used on sensitive skin. Our trained professionals will tailor the procedure to your skin’s specific needs, using different needle depths and techniques to ensure a gentle yet effective treatment.

Can I combine microneedling with other treatments?

Absolutely! Microneedling can be combined with other treatments like chemical peels, dermaplaning, or PRP for enhanced results. Our experts can advise on the best combination based on your skincare goals

Will there be any downtime after microneedling?

There may be mild redness, swelling, or sensitivity immediately following the treatment, which usually subsides within a few days. You can typically resume your daily activities after 24-48 hours. Your esthetician will provide you with post-treatment care guidelines to ensure optimal recovery.

What is your cancellation/no show policy?
