So many people are just now learning about microneedling and the benefits it has to your skin. Here are some answers to your questions.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a safe & effective treatment that is minimally invasive. There are 12 microneedles that cause controlled damage to the skin which encourage collagen production.
What are the benefits?
Microneedling has many benefits. It helps with fine lines & wrinkles, hyperpigmentation or sun damage, reduces pore size, evens out uneven skin tone, helps reduce acne, repairs scarring, stretch marks, loose skin, rosacea and even alopecia.
Does it hurt?
At Perfect Skin & Lash, we use medical grade numbing ointment to ensure you are comfortable through the entire process.
What is the downtime?
The great news is that with the use of stem cells, redness is reduced substantially. Most people will see reduced redness 10-12 hours post procedure. Women can wear makeup 18-24 hours after their completed service.
Some people do experience peeling but this is dependent on the client and their circumstances.
How often can I get microneedling?
Depending on your specific goals, we recommend once every 4 weeks with a series of 2-6 sessions. Again, everyone is different and some may require more than others.
For those with deeper scarring or wrinkles, we would typically recommend 4-6 sessions, spaced out 4 weeks apart.
It's very important to remember that microneedling is not a quick fix. It causes controlled damage to the skin, therefore, the skin MUST heal. People oftentimes notice changes over a period of months.
What's the new TWIST?
AnteAGE Microneedling Stem Cells have been added to ALL microneedling services at Perfect Skin & Lash. This added product benefits your results in many ways. How? It promotes increased cell turnover, renews and repairs the skin and boosts collagen production, which is already promoted by microneedling. Stem cells accelerate the healing process to encourage beautiful, healthy skin. You will be provided with the remaining stem cell microneedling solution along with samples of stem cell products to use post treatment. You will use these products before returning to your regular regimine/routine. Clients often decide to begin using the AnteAGE serum & accelerator to continue the healing process for increased results.
