WHAT IS MEDICAL MICRONEEDLING USED FOR?It is used for reducing acne scars, wrinkles, and depressions on the skin. Moreover, it helps in infusing growth factors vitamins, creams, serums, and many others. Microneedling treatments help lift and tighten the patient’s skin while improving its texture for more younger looking skin.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING TREATMENT?Primarily, a numbing cream is applied on your face. It will sit for about forty minutes., This is vital for it to become a painless procedure, and you’ll just feel slight discomfort at worst. Furthermore, a hyaluronic acid serum and growth factor serum are usually applied as well. Then, with the help of your body’s natural healing ability, a device is used to create hundreds of tiny skin pricks that create thousands of micro-channels into your skin. This process is repeated until the entire face is treated. This usually lasts for about an hour, more or less.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?As your body heals a few days after treatment, everything tightens because of the formation of all these new collagen and elastin which make your skin fuller and plumper. During this proliferation stage, you will start to see improvements on your skin tone, texture, fine lines and wrinkles, and the healing of the acne scars and stretch marks as well as other skin pigmentations. The full result will be visible after two to four weeks. What’s more is that the effect of medical microneedling is cumulative so there’s really no limit to doing it. It can be done as often as every thirty days if you see that it works for you.
DOES MEDICAL MICRONEEDLING HAVE DOWNTIME?
Since a numbing cream is applied, the patient wouldn’t feel any pain during the procedure. You’ll look red for a few days but otherwise, there is very minimal to no downtime so long as you don’t use any potentially harmful products and just let it heal.
