Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen and strengthens the epidermis. Using an electrical device containing very fine needles to pass over the skin creates microscopic 'injuries' to trigger new collagen synthesis. Think of this as your body's most natural form of giving you a fresh new layer of skin.
BENEFITS: Microneedling has a growing list of benefits. It is said to rejuvenate and plump the skin with minimal discomfort and very little downtime, and it can be adjusted to fit each person’s needs, including:
-REDUCING THE APPEARANCE OF SCARS (INCLUDING ACNE SCARS) - REDUCING THE APPEARANCE OF FINE LINES AND WRINKLES - REDUCING ENLARGED PORES - REDUCING THE APPEARANCE OF HYPERPIGMENTATION (INCLUDING SUN SPOTS) - SMOOTHING UNEVEN SKIN TONE -IMPROVING SKIN ELASTICITY -PUMPS SKIN
RESULTS: The recovery time for microneedling is minimal. Most people require very little downtime if any at all. You may notice skin irritation and redness within the first few days. Your skin will also be more sensitive to the sun, so be sure to apply sunscreen. After microneedling, your skin works fairly quickly to rejuvenate new tissue. In theory, you should see results within a couple of weeks. To maintain the results of your treatment, you’ll need multiple sessions and perhaps other complementing treatments.
