This treatment is minimally invasive and can be performed on the face, neck, and décolleté. Microneedling is an advisable alternative to skin procedures that are more invasive and require more downtime. Each patient’s skin condition and personal goals determine the number of needed treatments to achieve the desired result. Patients with moderate to severe acne scars will require more treatments than patients with early signs of aging, such as minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Although it does cause tiny micro-injuries to the skin, the procedure itself only causes minimal discomfort.
Before your microneedling procedure, a topical anesthetic will be applied to make you as comfortable as possible as your safety and comfort are our top priority. You will have mild swelling and redness following your treatment but will subside on its own. Recovery time can take up to five days. A serum may be applied for added benefits after your procedure based on your individual skincare needs and at our discretion. Sun exposure and makeup application following your treatment are not recommended.
