Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin. By creating tiny “micro-injuries” we can stimulate the body’s natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production. The healing process takes time, as your skin will slowly repair itself over the course of 3-6 months. Microneedling is an excellent way to repair scars, lighten melisma, soften skin texture and tighten the skin. We recommend that you purchase a package of 3-6 sessions. Treatments are scheduled 4 weeks apart and results are best at 6 months after your last treatment.
How To Prepare
It is important that you discontinue topical prescription medications 14 days before your treatment (like Retina-A, Differing, Trilumen). Please stop all tanning (spray and or sun) and keep the area being treated out of the sun at all times.
Advise your aesthetician you are taking any oral medications or trying to get pregnant. If you have an active breakout or any type of open sore, we will have to reschedule your appointment.
What To Expect
On the day of your appointment, we will remove your make up and the aesthetician will gently clean your face. A numbing cream is than applied to your skin and we let it sit for about 20 minutes prior to the treatment. During the treatment, the aesthetician will use a machine with a sterile tip that has ultra fine needles. She will make a few passes with this device and apply special serums that will help with the healing process. The machine will actually push the product into the deeper layers of the skin.
After the treatment, we will clean and dry the skin, apply NeoCutis Hyalis, and Elta MD Sunscreen. The area we have treated will be very red and there may be pinpoint bleeding. This is normal. Although you can apply make-up, we recommend that you schedule your treatment so that you do not have to apply make-up and it can rest. Please refrain from extreme exercising fro 24-48 hours after your treatment.
While your skin regenerates, we recommend that you wear a sunscreen like Elta MD everyday and incorporate a retinol & vitamin C into your skin regimen. If you have any questions, please call the Spa. You can request another copy of post care instructions at anytime.
