Micro-needling is a non-surgical technique that is performed to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, lessen the hyperpigmentation of skin, and improve skin texture. 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.
What is micro-needling?
Your skin will be 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 end result is an improvement in the health and appearance of the skin.
How many treatments are needed?
For optimal results, three to six sessions may be recommended. The number of treatments required 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.
What can I expect after treatment?
Your skin will be red for up to five days. 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 tightness, mild flaking, and light burning. This will cease with time and you will notice a difference in the texture of your skin in a couple of weeks.
