What is Micro Needling?

If you’ve ever wondered how celebrities keep their skin looking so smooth and youthful-Micro Needling; where the skin is rapidly pierced by the tiny “micro”needles to immediately begin the healing process, stimulating collagen production and increasing cell turnover.

How Does Micro Needling Work?

We perform Micro-Needling using the state of the art CytoPen Micro Needling device from Emage. This handheld device uses sterile, disposable tips.

Each tip contains 12 “micro” needles to pierce the skin at very specific therapeutic depths.  The thousands of tiny needle pricks stimulate collagen and elastin production, while also creating receptor sites which easily absorb a variety of available serums including powerful PRP transformational serum.

Micro Needling is sometimes referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy or Skin Needling. Also, keep in mind that Micro Needling has been cleared as an anti-aging skin treatment by the FDA.

The Micro Needling process can be performed at varying depths in the skin’s surface, shallow for product or serum absorption, and deeper for treatment of issues such as acne scars.

Is Micro Needling Painful? Will I need to Use Numbing Cream?

Micro Needling is going to create thousands of tiny needle pricks in the skin, so it would not be very comfortable without numbing. Most describe the sensation as that of having sandpaper lightly brushed across their face. We always use highly effective medical grade numbing cream. Numbing time for Micro Needling is typically 30 minutes prior to the Micro Needling treatment. We allow time for the numbing cream to set in to be sure that the treatment is as comfortable as possible.  


How Long Does a Micro Needling Treatment Take?

The micro needling pen will move quickly across the skin, and will feel somewhat prickly, but not very uncomfortable due to the numbing cream. Numbing time is about 30 minutes, and the Micro Needling process itself usually takes about 15-30 minutes, depending on skin thickness and target issues. So, the average total treatment time for Micro Needling is about one hour.


Is There Downtime after Micro Needling?

Downtime after Micro Needling is minimal, but you can expect to have several days of pink skin and some sensitivity. There will most likely be pinpoint bleeding during the treatment, which will stop almost immediately. The skin tends to  take on a “bronzed” appearance for several days post treatment.

Then this bronzed outer layer of skin will begin to flake off, revealing a fresh and glowing new you underneath. It is recommended that you stay away from the sun and avoid strenuous exercise for 2 weeks following treatment. Additionally, it is recommended that hot showers, baths, hot-tubs and saunas are avoided for about two weeks after Micro Needling as well.


What Kind of Results Should I Expect from Micro Needling?

The best results are achieved by completing a series of treatments with Micro Needling. Although results vary from person to person, most will experience a decided improvement in tone and texture of the skin. Fine lines and wrinkles soften dramatically, and scarring becomes significantly less noticeable. Micro Needling has gained a strong reputation for rejuvenation sluggish, dull skin. Skin becomes noticeable tighter and smoother after even one treatment.


How Many Treatments of Micro Needling Will I Need?

The number of Micro Needling treatments required for amazing results depends on what condition the skin is in when treatments are begun. Most find that a series of 6 or possibly 10 are needed to see truly dramatic changes in the complexion. Most who are hoping to tighten and tone their skin will be on track with 6 treatments. Those who are seeking to diminish the depth of acne scarring generally require a minimum of 8-10 sessions.


How Often Should I be Treated with Micro Needling?

It is recommended that treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart. It is important that there is complete healing before having another session. As the Micro Needling procedure begins to stimulate collagen and elastin production, it becomes very important to maintain the momentum with regular treatments. Sticking with a set schedule of appointments yields the fastest and most dramatic results.
