Micro-needling is a non-surgical technique that is performed to improve skin texture, minimize wrinkles and fine lines, and lessen the hyperpigmentation of skin. The treatment can be performed on the entire face, neck, décolleté, abdomen, arms, legs, and hands. Micro-needling can help anywhere the skin is structurally weak, or there are stretch marks or scars.

To prepare for micro-needling, the skin is prepped with a special gel that creates numbness. Then a power handpiece makes miniscule channels into the skin. This prompts the body’s natural healing process, which creates collagen and elastin. The result is an improvement in the health and appearance of the skin.

For ideal results, three to six sessions may be needed. This depends on the severity of the case. Once the final results are achieved, one to two sessions a year are recommended to maintain the outcome.

Your skin will be red for up to five days after treatment. After the first day, you can wear mineral makeup to hide the redness. Many patients feel up to going out the following night. You may experience light burning, tightness, and mild flaking. This will cease after time and you will notice a difference in the texture and quality of your skin in a few weeks.
