What is microneedling? 

Microneedling is a regenerative treatment, leading to skin rejuvenation from within. The skin has a natural healing capacity. When injured, it responds by creating natural collagen. The micro-injuries created by our advanced microneedling device sends a message to the skin to produce natural collagen and elastin, leading to firmer, healthier skin. When combined with RF technology, the results are even more remarkable. We advise you to undergo a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart, followed by yearly or bi-yearly maintenance treatments, along with physician-grade skincare products.

What is the recovery time after microneedling?

Following microneedling, you should not experience any serious downtime. Your skin will appear redder, and you may have pinpoint bleeding, but these side effects fade quickly. You may experience some itching (the body healing), minor flaking, and some minor marks left from the needles that can be hidden with makeup.

The risks of microneedling

While microneedling is a widely acclaimed treatment, it comes with certain potential risks. Choosing an inexperienced practitioner or carrying out an at-home procedure can lead to adverse effects, such as redness, swelling, and minor discomfort. However, these effects usually resolve after a few days. In rare cases, patients may develop infections or scarring, but this rarely happens when performed by a certified professional in a sterile environment. Individuals with sensitive skin may experience temporary sensitivity or pigmentation changes.
