Micro-needling is a non-surgical technique that is performed to improve skin texture, minimize fine lines and wrinkles, 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 where there are stretch marks or scars.
What is micro-needling?
During micro-needling 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 end result is an improvement in the health and appearance of the skin.
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 light burning, tightness, and mild flaking. This will cease with time and you will notice a difference in the texture of your skin in a couple of weeks.
