What is Microneedling?

Microneedling uses a state-of-the-art pen equipped with 12 sterile, tiny needles. This device swiftly glides over the skin, creating controlled micro-injuries. These minor wounds kickstart your body’s natural healing process, boosting collagen and elastin production – essential proteins that maintain our skin’s firmness and smooth texture. Suitable for treating the face, neck, and décolletage, microneedling is an excellent anti-aging solution that works well between laser treatments and injectables.

Microneedling FAQ

  • Can other areas of the body be targeted with microneedling?
    Microneedling can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands, and other areas of the body where there are skin concerns.
  • Is microneedling for everyone?
    While microneedling is suitable for most skin types, we take extra precautions with clients who have autoimmune diseases or are prone to keloid scarring, and we cannot perform this procedure on pregnant or breastfeeding patients.
  • What should I expect during a microneedling treatment?
    A numbing cream is applied before treatment making the procedure tolerable for most people. Throughout the session, patients may notice a slight vibration sensation, with sensitivity levels differing across the treated areas.
  • Are there any risks or side effects associated with microneedling?
    Microneedling is generally safe, but as with any procedure, there are risks. Infection, scarring, and other complications may occur if the procedure is not performed by a qualified provider or if proper aftercare instructions are not followed.
  • Can microneedling be performed at home?
    While there are microneedling devices designed for at-home use, it’s recommended to have the procedure performed by a professional. They possess the expertise needed to guarantee proper technique, hygiene, and safety during the procedure.
