What is the process for microneedling like?
The first step in your microneedling procedure will be to gently cleanse your face to ensure it is free from debris or substances that could potentially harm your skin or cause infection. Many patients will choose to have a topical anesthetic smoothed over their face in order to improve the comfort of their procedure. Once this anesthetic has taken effect, your provider will use a microneedling device to introduce hundreds of tiny punctures into the upper layers of your skin. The microinjuries stimulate your body to create more collagen as part of the healing process. These channels can also help improve the absorption of topical products, so you can enjoy the greatest possible benefit from your skincare routine.
How many treatments of microneedling should I do?
The total number of microneedling treatment sessions you will want to undergo will depend on your individual body and the issues you are seeking to address. If your goal is to plump your skin, fewer treatments may be required than if you are seeking to improve the appearance of acne scarring or hyperpigmentation. Many of our clients choose to schedule anywhere from 3-6 sessions spaced approximately 4-6 weeks apart as an initial treatment. Maintenance sessions can always be scheduled if you feel like your results could use a boost because there is no downtime required for recovery. Following your sessions, you may notice a tight or stinging sensation that feels like a sunburn, as well as some redness or minor swelling, but these side effects typically dissipate in about a day and are not a real hindrance to your ability to go to work or enjoy other activities, though you may be instructed to avoid rigorous physical activity and sweating after your session for a few days as your skin heals.
When will I see results from my microneedling session?
Following your very first microneedling treatment, you will immediately notice some plumping of the skin. This superficial swelling is the result of the body’s natural healing process as it works to address the tiny microinjuries that are created by our microneedling device. Most patients will notice truly positive results within 1-2 weeks of their treatment session. The inflammatory response created in your facial tissue will trigger generation of new tissue as part of the collagen induction process, and this can continue for up to 1 full year following your treatment, providing you with both immediate benefits and long-lasting results.
