MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT

When your skin looks and feels healthy, you naturally feel more attractive and confident. The skin rejuvenation specialists at Spa One offer microneedling treatments to improve the appearance and texture of the skin. These treatments work on the principle of “collagen induction therapy” to gently stimulate the skin’s natural regeneration process. Whether you want to reduce signs of aging, sun damage, or acne or just want brighter skin, microneedling may be the treatment for you.

QUICK FACTS

  • Treatment time: Approximately 30 to 45 minutes; varies with treatment areas
  • Discomfort level: Mild, with use of a topical anesthetic
  • Number of treatments: Usually a series of 3 to 4 treatments spaced 4 to 5 weeks apart
  • Recovery: None; skin will look mildly sunburned for a few days
  • Duration of results: Varies with your sun exposure and at-home skin care; maintenance treatments are recommended

HOW DOES MICRONEEDLING WORK?

Our microneedling system is an automated, state-of-the-art medical device that has tiny “microneedles” on its tip that gently create fine pinpricks in the top layer of the skin. The skin responds by regenerating damaged cells and increasing production of collagen and elastin to naturally repair itself. The depth of the needle penetration may be adjusted to the condition and thickness of the skin you want to target.

    WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MICRONEEDLING?

    Microneedling addresses many common concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin texture. These versatile treatments benefit the skin in a variety of ways such as:

    • Improving elasticity
    • Increasing firmness
    • Softening fine lines and wrinkles
    • Repairing acne scars
    • Minimizing pore size
    • Reducing excess pigmentation

    WHERE CAN MICRONEEDLING BE USED?

    Because the needle depth is adjustable, we can perform microneedling treatments on most areas of exposed skin, including:

    • Face, even the delicate skin under the eyes and around the lips
    • Neck
    • Chest

    WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING A MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT?

    First a topical numbing cream is applied to the skin and left in place for about 30 minutes. Next the skin is cleansed and dried. The esthetician then slowly moves the handpiece across the skin as the microneedles rapidly push into the skin and retract. After targeted areas are evenly treated, a topical skin care product may be applied. The microneedling process helps beneficial skin care products absorb better.

    HOW LONG DOES A MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT TAKE?

    A microneedling treatment takes about 30 to 45 minutes to perform on one area, such as the face. Treatment time will increase with multiple areas or if combined with other treatments.

    HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECOVER FROM MICRONEEDLING?

    These gentle treatments typically do not require downtime. It is normal for treated areas to look mildly sunburned for a few days after treatment. Good sun protection is important during this time — and at all times — but there are no activity restrictions.

    HOW MANY TIMES DO YOU NEED TO DO MICRONEEDLING?

    While occasionally patients will attain the improvements they want from a single treatment, most need a series of 3 to 4 treatments spaced 4 to 5 weeks apart. Your esthetician will recommend a maintenance schedule that is personalized to you unique needs.

    HOW MANY TIMES DO YOU NEED TO DO MICRONEEDLING?

    Patients often notice improvement in their skin right away, but the most noticeable changes are typically after 3 to 4 treatments as collagen and elastin are replenished in the skin.
