Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is not nearly as frightening as it sounds and the results are truly mind-blowing. In short, the procedure uses a tool made up tiny needles that cause controlled micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. These micro-injuries kick start the body to release natural chemicals that lead to the production of collagen and elastin and result in remarkable transformations.
What does microneedling achieve?
Microneedling can be used for a variety of skin conditions and is an effective way to achieve a smoother, more radiant complexion. Microneedling is a popular way to reduce signs of aging, reduce pore size, fade acne scars and make skin look more refreshed. The before and after results of microneedling are dramatic and cumulative sessions can help reduce or reverse a variety of complexion concerns. Another positive effect of microneedling is its ability to help your skin absorb products more efficiently. The tiny holes created from the needles allow skin care products like serums and moisturizers to penetrate more deeply and effectively—resulting in enriched results.
Is microneedling painful?
Despite how it might look, the micro needling process has little to no discomfort associated with it. Your artist will apply a numbing cream over your entire face before beginning the actual procedure, which only takes between 20 and 30 minutes.
Is there downtime?
With the most recent advancements in the technology, there is virtually no downtime associated with microneedling. While you will experience some redness for a couple of days as a result of all the stimulation, you can expect it to quickly transform into a glow.
How much does it cost?
Patients can expect to pay in the range of $150- $300 per session.
