How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling is a collagen induction technique. Tiny needles cause invisible punctures to the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s repair mechanism: collagen and elastin production in the papillary dermis. New capillaries are formed, increasing blood flow to the face.

The result? Skin that looks glowy, youthful, firm, and clear.

Unlike peels or lasers, microneedling does not burn the top layer of the skin. The downtime is minimal as are the risks. Best of all, you can see improvement after only a single session and results are cumulative.


What to Expect:
Before, During, & After Your Microneedling Session

Before Microneedling

  • Discontinue retinol serums or drying acne products 48 hours before your appointment. Please avoid fillers and other skin treatments for 10 days before and after your microneedling session.
  • Show up with a clean and bare face.

During Microneedling

  • Microneedling sessions last 60-minutes. The microneedling portion takes about 20-minutes.
  • There is little to no discomfort with the microneedling device. You will be relaxing on an infrared crystal mat in our beautiful and serene office space. Your skin is treated with numbing gel and our Celluma light therapy device before the procedure and you will receive hyaluronic acid serum treatment and facial reflexology massage aftercare.
  • Our clinic uses all non-toxic, cruelty-free, organic products.

After Microneedling

  • Redness will persist for the remainder of the day after your session. You may apply makeup after 2-3 hours. There is no downtime and you can resume normal activities right away.
  • You may notice that fine lines look more obvious for the first few days after treatment. This is a normal effect of the skin drying out. Improvements will start to show within a week. You will see the full benefits within 4-6 weeks after treatment.
  • You will notice an improvement in your skin after your first session. Follow-up sessions are recommended once monthly until desired results are achieved.
