If you suffer from embarrassing acne scars, rough texture, and uneven skin tone that doesn’t seem to improve with the use of over-the-counter products, and loose, wrinkled skin or stubborn fine lines are a major concern for you, then you could benefit from Microneedling with FDA-approved Rejuvapen. This incredibly rejuvenating treatment improves the skin’s overall texture and tone while reducing pigmentation irregularities, acne scarring, and pore size. Additionally, you will also see skin tightening benefits and a reduction in the fine lines that come with the early signs of aging.
The microneedling process itself takes approximately 30 minutes. However, for preparation, approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour before the procedure, our aesthetician will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. This will numb the skin and will make you feel comfortable during the process.
The recovery time from microneedling is minimal. Most people require very little downtime if any at all. You may notice skin irritation and redness within the first few days but will go down soon after.
After microneedling, your skin works fairly quickly to rejuvenate new tissue. This means results show up within only a couple of weeks! To maintain the results of your treatment, you’ll need multiple sessions and if necessary – other complementing treatments.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the downtime of microneedling?
You will experience mild redness, pinpoint bleeding, swelling, and bruising for a few days after treatment. On average, patients are red for up to 2 to 4 days but some heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
What will I look like post-treatment?
Immediately following the treatment you will look red, resembling moderate sunburn. The skin will feel warm and slightly tight. You will experience some redness and mild swelling for 24-48 hours post-treatment.
What are the benefits?
Micro-needling can significantly reduce and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars, and stretch marks
Is it painful?
Patients typically feel some mild discomfort during their microneedling sessions, but it is not considered painful. Numbing cream or local anesthesia can be requested if you are nervous or anxious about the procedure.
How long does the procedure take?
30 minutes for topical numbing to be applied prior to treatment. The procedure takes 30-45 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated.
When will I see the results?
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after a treatment as collagen production continues.
