This unique process uses tiny, medical-grade sterile needles to produce micro-injuries to the skin. The body then uses its amazing healing qualities to produce additional collagen and elastin in the treated area. These essential proteins are what gives the skin a youthful, supple texture.
As the body ages, the production of collagen and elastin decreases, resulting in wrinkles, fine lines and “crepey” skin. Microneedling can reverse this process by stimulating healthy cell generation and tightening loose skin. Microneedling is also an effective treatment for scars.
Healing from microneedling usually takes a mere 24 hours. However, it may take up to two to three days depending on the extent of the treatment. You can are free to return to work or school immediately after treatment and wear makeup 24 hours after your treatment. However we do suggest to use mineral makeup such as Jane Arendle
Peeling and flaking of the treatment area may occur three to five days after microneedling as a result of increased skin cell turnover. Avoid picking and scratching at your skin. Instead, use a gentle moisturizer to help combat dry skin.
We recommend at least 3 sessions spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart
You can use Vitamin C serum which helps in the healing process. It also has anti-aging properties and can enhance the effect of micro-needling. But, the patient should refrain/from using any serum/product on the skin right after the procedure. Ideally, do not apply anything on your skin for two to three days and only use the products provided by the clinic
