What is micro-needling?

Micro-needling can be used to reduce the appearance of large pores, improve the appearance of scarring caused by acne, tighten loose skin, and improve skin tone and texture. Micro-needling is a minimally invasive, non-surgical skin rejuvenating treatment that uses an electronic device containing fine needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled skin injury. These punctures, or micro-channels, stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin and stimulate circulation, which improves the overall quality of the skin and causes it to tighten. The micro-channels created by micro-needling treatments allow for better penetration and absorption of topical skin care treatments, enhancing the effects of these treatments.

How many treatments will I need?

Patients typically see the best results over the course of three to five treatments spaced about four to six weeks apart. The number of treatments required in order to achieve your desired results may vary.

When will I see results?

The results of micro-needling treatments are gradual because the improvement starts at a cellular level. Most patients see noticeable results about two weeks after a treatment session, with continued improvement in skin quality over the next several months. Results may vary.

Are there any side effects?

Some patients may experience some mild swelling, bruising, or mild redness and tenderness similar to a mild sunburn in the treated area. These side effects are temporary and typically subside within one to three days of a treatment session.
