Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skin's self-repair mechanism by creating micro "injuries" in the skin. Skin needling procedures are performed in a safe precise manner with the use of a sterile needle head with 12- 32 gauge needles. The procedure is normally completed within 30-60 minutes depending on the required treatment and anatomical site.
This process triggers new collagen synthesis yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin. On average a series of 3 to 6 treatments is recommended every 4 weeks, depending on the condition being treated. The best results for collagen remodeling are noticeable 3-6 months after a series of treatments, while other results may be almost immediate.
The most common side effects are redness, swelling, skin tightness, tenderness, and dryness or flaking of the treated area. The average downtime can range from 24-72 hours depending on the individual, area of treatment, and settings used during treatment. Customized post treatment instructions will be discussed during your consultation and after treatment has been performed.
