How microneedling works

Microneedling penetrates the skin and creates micro-openings deep into dermis that stimulate the body's natural healing process. This natural healing process releases growth factors and stimulates collagen, elastin, and fibroblast cell production that leads to tightening and lifting of the skin.

Microneedling increases new collagen production and remodels old deformed collagen which found in scars, wrinkles and large pores, and stretch marks. It can make facial skin look youthfully thicker.

Prior to Treatment

Avoid Retin-A, benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid for at least 12 hours prior to treatment.

Avoid auto-immune or anti-coagulant medicines at 12 hours prior to treatment.

Avoid prolonged sun exposure or tanning at least 12 hours to treatment.

Thoroughly wash and clean your face don't wear the makeup on the day of the procedure.

What Can I Expect

The treatment is minimally invasive with no downtime. A full-face treatment usually takes about an hour. Prior to the treatment, the face is numbed with a topical anesthetic cream for about 20 minutes. The face is then treated using the Dermapen micro-needling pen. The treatment makes tiny skin pinholes that leave the skin red and triggers the rejuvenation process. Patients can expect redness, itching, stinging, tightness, and swelling following a treatment that usually resolves within a few days. Microneedling can be combined with mesotherapy and sub-dermal blood injection to enhance results.

When Will I See Results

Skin improvements can usually be seen about just 6-8 days following treatment and results improve up to 90 days later. A course of sessions (serial treatments) is usually recommended to achieve optimal results. It is recommended that treatments are spaced four to six weeks apart*

Who Should Not Have A Microneedling Treatment

Patients with the following conditions should not receive a Derma Pen treatment: skin infections, inflammation, redness, rashes or open skin lesions, pregnant women, recent topical or oral steroids use, active cold sores, blood clotting, and auto-immune disorders, diabetics, keloids, sunburn, or Accutane use within six months.
