Microneedling Facial, West Hollywood & Brentwood
With the help of a microneedling facial, the overall appearance of your skin will turn smooth and healthy. Not only this but large pores will also get minimized. At the same time, hyaluronic acid is applied to the skin to improve hydration and heal the skin properly. It is used on the face to target issues like:
Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Brown spots/Uneven Skin Tone
Reduced Skin Elasticity
How Does Microneedling Work?
The SkinPen features 12 sterile single-use surgical grade needle tips, which move at high speeds for greater efficiency, safety, and comfort. It goes with every skin type. Owing to the variable pen position, you can also get the procedure customized and ensure that each patient receives the rejuvenation to get the desired results. The SkinPen is gently moved across the treatment area throughout the treatment, whereas the 12 sterile needle tips puncture the skin. They create 1600 micro-channels per second, going deep into the dermal layer where the collagen and elastin are situated. The micro-channels help increases topical infusions and encourages the body's natural healing process by boosting collagen production by gentle, automated, and reciprocating vibrations.
Microneedling facial turns your skin slightly thick to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sun spots, scars, and melasma. You need to take care of before and after your treatment to avoid sun exposure and retinoids until your skin heals.
How long does it take for Microneedling treatments to heal?
While the micro-needling procedure has minimal side effects, visible recovery occurs 48 hours after the procedure. Pay extra attention to the healing process up to 7 days post-treatment.
Healing will continue under the surface of your skin after two months.
What should you do after micro-needling treatments?
- Avoid direct sunlight and prolonged sun exposure.
- Protect your skin from sun damage by applying a generous amount of Physical Sunblock (Elta MD preferred) each time you go outdoors.
- Do not forcibly peel off your skin. Instead, keep it moisturized while allowing it to shed naturally.
- Avoid benzoyl peroxide and serum with vitamin E, C, and Retinol A two days after treatment.
- Avoid activities that induce excessive sweating 72 hours after SkinPen.
- Avoid saunas, exercise, swimming pools, steam rooms, and jacuzzis for 5 days after treatment.
How Many Sessions of Microneedling are Needed?
Three to five micro-needling sessions every four to six weeks can reduce the signs of premature aging with increased collagen and elastin production.
Just as important as pre-treatment, micro-needling clients need to pay extra attention to their skin as it heals post-procedure.
