Microneedling Q&A

Microneedling is used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues. You'll likely notice brighter, firmer skin, too. Ideal results are achieved after multiple sessions. Microneedling is far more effective than at-home rollers. Results from Microneedling usually appear four to six weeks after treatment is done. Most patients find microneedling very tolerable, we apply a topical numbing cream to the area being treated 45 mins before treatment starts, with this cream there is almost no sensation during the treatment. After treatment you will experience redness and mild swelling for 24-48 hours after the treatment is done, followed by some slight peeling. You may wear makeup again after 24 hours. Treatments for wrinkles caused by aging usually take one or two treatments recommended per year. Microneedling can be safely repeated every four to six weeks as needed. Collagen induction requires at least three treatments, while scar reduction requires between three and six treatments.
