Common Questions

What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a non-surgical treatment that helps improve the skin’s appearance by creating microscopic punctures that stimulate collagen production. Also called percutaneous collagen induction therapy, it’s performed using a pen-shaped electrical tool with very fine needles. The tiny punctures stimulate your body’s natural healing process, prompting the skin to produce new collagen, which helps create a tighter, smoother appearance.
How long does it take to see results?
You can expect to start seeing results within a week, and you should notice full results within 4-6 weeks. This allows time for your body to produce collagen and elastin as part of the healing process.
How long do results last?
It depends on your age, your skin, and your goals, but typically results last between 3-5 months. To see and maintain optimal results, we recommend starting with a series of 3-5 treatments, spaced about a month apart. 
What should you expect post treatment?
Immediately following your treatment, you can expect your skin to be flushed or bright red, as if you have a mild to moderate sunburn. Applying hyaluronic acid serum post treatment can encourage collagen production. You should not wear makeup for 24 hours and should avoid sweaty exercise, hot tubs, or swimming for 48 hours after treatment. 
What are the side effects of microneedling?
You can expect to see redness and swelling for up to 48 hours after your treatment, and some people experience flaking or peeling skin. You might also see small red spots or light bruising that lasts for several days during the healing process. To minimize side effects, be sure to take care of your skin using gentle cleansers, moisturizers, and SPF. 
Who is not a candidate for microneedling?
We do not recommend microneedling for pregnant women or anyone with active acne breakouts.
