Skin concerns. Wrinkles. Acne Scars. Sun damage. Dry skin. Stretch marks. Surgical scars. These are all common skin ailments we contend with on a regular basis.
Micro needling creates micro channels in the skin. When those channels are created the skins own repair response is to start producing collagen and elastin, this is to heal that controlled injury that was just created.
Microneedling is a highly effective technique that can be used anywhere on the face or body. It is particularly effective for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, restoring a more radiant, youthful appearance that can be seen within a week of the first procedure.
Stretch marks, surgical scars and acne scars are deeper skin conditions and for that reason, it may take longer to start seeing results.
Microneedling in general is a gentler approach designed to provide incremental change. A series of 3-6 micro needling treatments is always recommended, depending on what your skin concern is. Treatments should be spaced 4 weeks apart.
The effects of a micro needling pen are not permanent, so your esthetician will recommend a maintenance program which could include quarterly procedures to keep skin looking it’s best. This along with an effective home skin care product routine will prolong the results and increase effectiveness.
