Micro-needling Skin Rejuvenation uses a specialized device for promoting a youthful look and texture to the skin. One of the most popular skin treatments requested by clients is Micro-needling. A reduction in hyper-pigmentation, wrinkling, acne scars, crepe-y skin and stretch marks caused by pregnancy are noticeably improved.
The procedure uses a device or pen that contains sharp micro-needles that create 1000’s of micro channels or holes that help stimulate collagen and elastin production. The increased collagen and elastin plumps up the skin. Improvement in skin texture, tighter skin, and a reduction in pore size are a result of the plumping effect.
Patients reported rating that both Laser treatments and Micro-needling treatments were equally effective in resolving skin issues. However, patients reported fewer side effects with less downtime from Micro-needling.
Additional treatments are recommended after 6months to a year. Check with your professional to discuss your options.
General Side effects – After the first day you may have a little bruising and red skin at or around the micro-needling sight. After the second day the redness and bruising should subside. After a few days the skin will continue to heal with little to no visible side effects.
Downtime – Most people go right back to work and resume their daily routine. Aftercare is important. Discuss and follow the specific aftercare procedures with your medical professional.
