What is microneedling?
Micro-needling is an innovative treatment option that can repair the skin, correcting the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation, sun damage, and other signs of aging. Using a handpiece with very fine needles at the end, micro-needling works to create micro-channels in the skin. These micro-channels are able to help stimulate the skin’s healing process as well as its production of collagen and elastin, which are two vital proteins that help keep our skin looking younger and healthy; collagen is responsible for maintaining volume while elastin promotes greater elasticity in the skin.
Why consider microneedling?
- Micro-needling is a fast procedure that can repair the skin and ignite the production of important proteins for a youthful appearance
- Micro-needling is non-surgical and non-invasive
- Micro-needling is a gentle procedure that will not cause trauma to the skin
- Patients will not need to secure downtime for recovery following their micro-needling treatment
- Micro-needling has a lower risk of patients experiencing jarring side effects
How long does a microneedling treatment session take?
The duration of a single micro-needling treatment session depends upon the size and location of the treated area as well as the extent of the condition. Generally, a micro-needling session may be completed in as quick as 15 minutes. Since micro-needling is a much faster procedure, it can be easier to implement it into your schedule than some other treatment methods.
How many microneedling treatments will I need?
