Want to know what is Microneedling?
Microneedling – Is a procedure that creates tiny micro-channels into the skin that stimulates your own collagen and elastin production. It safe for all skin types. Minimal downtime meaning max redness for 48 hours.
Benefits of the treatment: Great for improvement in acne scarring, stretch marks, minimizing fine lines/wrinkles, pores, and texture/tone.
1.How long does the procedure take? The procedure takes an hour. We have to apply topical numbing and leave it on for 25 mins than the actual micro needling treatment takes 20 mins.
2. When will I start to see results? It takes about a week to start seeing a glow to your skin and then about 2-4 weeks for seeing a difference in collagen production.
3. What is the pre-instructions before treatment? Prior to the treatment you want to make sure that you have not been in the sun majorly for about 2 weeks. You want to stop any retinoids, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, hydroquinoine and vitamin c before the treatment. Why? Because these are photosensitizing so could be extra sensitive in procedure.
4. What can I expect after the treatment? You will be a moderate red right after the actual treatment (but everyone is different and how they react). For about 48 hours you will have a mild redness to skin with also some dryness to skin. We hope you enjoyed this article on what is microneedling.
