Microneedling (aka Collagen Induction Therapy) is an advanced clinical procedure that dramatically improves the appearance and health of the skin. During the treatment, tiny needles are used to created small micro-injuries in the dermal layer of the skin which in turn stimulates fibroblast cells to heal the area by producing collagen and elastin. Improvement in the skin can be seen in as little as one treatment but in most cases a series of 3-5 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is recommended for treating most skin issues. Due to its ability to stimulate collagen production in our skin, microneedling can help improve the appearance of fine lines, mild to moderate skin laxity, uneven texture, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, traumatic/surgical scars and stretch marks. One study found that 4 microneedling sessions produced a 400% increase in collagen production. Microneedling is incredibly safe, can be performed on most skin types and can be done on all parts of the body.

What is a microneedling treatment like?
A sterile single use needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to an automated pen. Your skincare professional will apply a topical gel to your skin and select appropriate needle depths depending on the skin issue(s) being addressed. In specific patterns, the pen will glide over the surface of the skin until the entire treatment area has been covered and clinical end point reached.
What will my skin look like after a microneedling treatment?
Immediately after the treatment your skin will be bright red and feel hot. In the summer, please bring a hat (wide brimmed is ideal) to wear after the treatment as you want to avoid direct sunlight on skin for the rest of the day. The total healing time depends on the aggressiveness of the treatment, depth of the needles used, and the amount of passes performed. On average, skin will remain pink for 2-3 days although some patients heal almost completely in 24 hours. Expect some moderate dryness and possible mild flaking for 2-4 days.
When will I see results after a microneedling treatment ?
Around day 5, skin will have a definite glow. Changes deep in the skin are just starting to happen and new collagen will be created for the next 4 weeks. Although many people will see an improvement with one treatment, it is typically recommended to receive a series of 3-5 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to create meaningful changes in the skin. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretchmarks, and acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Remember, these skin conditions didn’t occur overnight and treating them can take time but patience and consistency pays off!
