What is Micro-Needling?

Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive procedure that involves creating controlled micro-injuries to the skin using a device with fine, sterile needles. These micro-injuries stimulate the skin's natural healing response, leading to collagen and elastin production, crucial for maintaining firm, youthful skin.

What areas of the body can be treated with Micro-needling?

Micro-needling can be performed on various areas of the body, including:

Face: Micro-needling is commonly used to address concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, and uneven skin texture on the face.

Neck: It can be used to tighten sagging skin and reduce the appearance of horizontal necklines, often referred to as "necklace lines."

Décolletage: Micro-needling can improve the texture and appearance of the skin on the chest and reduce the visibility of sun damage and wrinkles.

Hands: This treatment can help to rejuvenate the skin on the hands, reducing the signs of aging and restoring a more youthful look.

Conditions Micro-Needling Can Treat:

What skin concerns can Micro-needling address?

Acne Scars: Micro-needling can improve the appearance of acne scars by stimulating collagen production and promoting smoother skin texture.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles: The treatment helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving the skin a more youthful and refreshed look.

Hyperpigmentation: Micro-needling can fade areas of hyperpigmentation, such as melasma or sunspots, by promoting the turnover of pigmented skin cells.

Enlarged Pores: The procedure can minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, resulting in smoother and more refined skin.

Uneven Skin Texture and Tone: Micro-needling encourages the regeneration of healthy skin cells, leading to improved texture and an even skin tone.

Who is the ideal Candidates for Micro-Needling:

Micro-needling is suitable for individuals seeking skin rejuvenation and improvement in specific concerns. Ideal candidates should have:

  • Overall good health
  • Realistic expectations about the results of the procedure.
  • Mild to moderate skin imperfections, such as acne scars, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation.
  • A willingness to undergo a series of treatments for optimal results, as micro-needling is typically performed in multiple sessions.

What To expect

Here’s how we take care of you before, during, and after your treatment.
Before Your Treatment
  • Consultation: You will have an initial consultation to discuss your concerns, medical history, and expectations.
  • Pre-Treatment Instructions: avoid sun exposure, retinol or exfoliating products, and certain medications in the days leading up to your treatment.
During Your Treatment
  • Cleansing: The treatment area will be cleansed thoroughly to remove any makeup, dirt, or oils.
  • Numbing Cream: A topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
  • Micro-Needling Procedure: We use a micro-needling device with fine, sterile needles to create controlled micro-injuries on your skin. We will gently glide the device over the treatment area, adjusting the depth and intensity of the needles.
  • Sensations: You may experience mild to moderate sensations during the procedure, such as a prickling or vibrating sensation.
  • Treatment Time: The duration of the treatment session depends on the size of the treatment area but typically ranges from 30 minutes to one hour.
After Your Treatment
  • Post-Treatment Sensations: After the procedure, your skin may appear slightly red and feel similar to a mild sunburn. You may also experience mild swelling and sensitivity in the treated area. These sensations are temporary and should subside within a few days.
  • Post-Treatment Care: You will receive specific post-treatment care instructions. These include avoiding excessive sun exposure, applying a gentle moisturizer, using sunscreen, and refraining from harsh skincare products for a certain period.
  • Downtime: There is typically minimal downtime associated with micro-needling. Most individuals can resume their regular activities within a day or two after the treatment.
  • Skin Healing: Over the next few days, your skin will go through a healing process. You may notice slight peeling or flaking as the old skin is shed and replaced with new, rejuvenated skin. The full results of micro-needling, such as improved texture and diminished scarring, gradually become more noticeable over time as the skin regenerates.
  • Follow-Up Treatments: Depending on your desired outcomes and individual needs, we may recommend a series of multiple micro-needling sessions, typically spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, to achieve optimal results.

How long does a micro-needling treatment take?

The duration of a micro-needling treatment depends on the size of the treatment area. On average, a session can last between 30 minutes to one hour.

How many micro-needling sessions are needed to see results?

The number of sessions required varies depending on individual skin concerns and desired outcomes. A series of 3 to 6 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart is recommended for optimal results.

How long does it take to recover from a micro-needling treatment?

The recovery time is relatively short. Mild redness and sensitivity, similar to a sunburn, may occur for a few days following the treatment. Most individuals can resume their regular activities within a day or two after the procedure.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with micro-needling?

Some temporary side effects may include redness, mild swelling, or minor pinpoint bleeding. Rarely, there is a risk of infection or scarring if post-treatment care instructions are not followed.

Can micro-needling be performed on all skin types?

Yes, micro-needling can be performed on various skin types and colors.

Can micro-needling be done on sensitive skin?

Micro-needling can be performed on sensitive skin, but caution should be exercised. The depth and intensity of the treatment may be adjusted to ensure comfort and minimize potential sensitivity or irritation.

Can micro-needling be combined with other treatments?

Yes, micro-needling can be combined with other treatments such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or topical serums to enhance results. This combination approach is often referred to as "vampire facial" or "collagen induction therapy with PRP."

Can micro-needling be used to treat acne scars?

Yes, micro-needling is an effective treatment for reducing the appearance of acne scars. It stimulates collagen production, improving the texture and overall appearance of the skin affected by acne scars.

Can micro-needling help with stretch marks?

Micro-needling can help improve the appearance of stretch marks by stimulating collagen production and promoting skin regeneration. However, the degree of improvement may vary depending on the severity and age of the stretch marks.

Is micro-needling effective for reducing wrinkles and fine lines?

Yes, micro-needling can be highly effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The procedure stimulates collagen production, which helps to smooth out the skin and restore a more youthful appearance.

Can micro-needling be performed on the lips?

Micro-needling is generally not recommended for the lips due to their delicate nature and sensitivity. Other treatments, such as dermal fillers or laser resurfacing, may be more suitable for lip enhancement.

How long do the results of micro-needling last?

The results of micro-needling can vary depending on individual factors and skincare maintenance. With proper post-treatment care and regular follow-up treatments, the results can be long-lasting, typically up to a year or more.

Are the results of micro-needling immediate?

The immediate effects of micro-needling may include mild redness and plumping of the skin. However, the full benefits of the treatment, such as improved texture and reduced scarring, become more noticeable as the skin regenerates over time.

Can I wear makeup after a micro-needling treatment?

It is generally recommended to avoid wearing makeup immediately after a micro-needling treatment to allow the skin to heal. After the initial recovery period (usually within 24 hours), makeup can be applied.

Can I undergo micro-needling if I have active acne breakouts?

Micro-needling can be performed on individuals with active acne breakouts, but the treatment may need to be modified to avoid aggravating the existing acne.

Can I sunbathe or use tanning beds after micro-needling?

It is strongly recommended to avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for several weeks following a micro-needling treatment. The skin may be more sensitive to UV radiation, and sun protection is crucial to prevent complications.

Are there any specific post-treatment instructions to follow after micro-needling?

Yes, aftercare instructions may include avoiding excessive sun exposure, wearing SPF, refraining from harsh skincare products, and maintaining proper hygiene. We will provide you with detailed instructions tailored to your specific needs.

Who should avoid Micro-needling treatments?

While micro-needling is generally a safe procedure, certain individuals should avoid treatment, such as:

Pregnant or breastfeeding women: As a precautionary measure, it is generally recommended to avoid micro-needling during pregnancy or while breastfeeding due to limited research on the procedure's safety in these circumstances.

Active skin infections or diseases: Individuals with active skin infections, such as cold sores or active acne breakouts, should postpone micro-needling until the infection or condition has resolved.

Keloid or hypertrophic scar tendencies: People who have a history of keloid or hypertrophic scarring may be at an increased risk of developing excessive scar tissue in response to micro-needling.

Uncontrolled diabetes or autoimmune disorders: Certain medical conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes or autoimmune disorders, may impair the healing process.

Active skin cancer or history of skin cancer: Micro-needling should be avoided in individuals with active skin cancer or a history of skin cancer in the treatment area.

Open wounds or recent skin procedures: Micro-needling should not be performed on areas with open wounds, sunburns, or recently treated skin (e.g., chemical peels or laser resurfacing). It is important to allow the skin to heal fully before considering micro-needling.

Blood clotting disorders or use of blood-thinning medications: Individuals with bleeding disorders or those taking blood-thinning medications may be at an increased risk of bleeding or bruising during micro-needling.

Allergies or sensitivities to micro-needling products: Some individuals may have allergies or sensitivities to the numbing cream, post-treatment serums, or other products used during the micro-needling procedure. It is essential to inform our staff about any known allergies or sensitivities beforehand.
