What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is also commonly referred to as collagen induction therapy. It helps to address concerns related to collagen production throughout the face. When searching for microneedling near you, you’ll most likely find a lot of information about reducing the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks.
During the Treatment
If you are confused about what the actual treatment is like, do not worry; you are not alone. During the treatment, you can expect to have your skin cleaned and prepared. Form there, a special device is used to create many tiny micro-channels in the skin.
After the Treatment
Once the process is complete, you can expect collagen production to increase over time as a result of the procedure. The aftercare of microneedling is one of the most common questions we get asked about. Aftercare for microneedling is essential to the success of the treatment and overall health of your skin. First and foremost, we recommend avoiding excess sun exposure. It is also advised that you do not use any old sunscreen; you should consult our professional regarding what products are recommended for sun exposure.
Aside from sun exposure, we suggest avoiding harsh facial care products for a set amount of time after the treatment. It is also suggested that you drink plenty of water to help your skin heal from the inside out. Basically, it is important to protect your skin in order to get the best outcome.
