With age, the skin naturally thins and loses volume. Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that not only restores volume loss, but also minimizes scars and fine wrinkles, improves skin tone and texture, treats acne scars, and so much more.
Before your microneedling procedure, a topical anesthetic cream will be applied to your skin. It takes about 30 minutes for your skin to become numb, but this will help with any discomfort during the treatment. Once you’re ready, your specialist will use a handheld microneedling device directly on your skin.
The device will move over your skin, administering the microneedles as it goes. As they penetrate your dermis and make tiny holes, the skin regeneration process is triggered. Microneedling feels like a small, sharp vibration which can be uncomfortable for some.
Others find it completely tolerable. Either way, we encourage you to let us know if you’re in discomfort. We can always adjust the needle depth. With a series of microneedling sessions, you’ll see your skin becoming firmer, healthier, and improved.
