Micro-needling is a novel skin resurfacing and rejuvenating procedure. Its advantage is that most activities can be resumed immediately after treatment yet it reproducibly improves skin texture. A series of treatments are administered in the office with minimal disruption in your normal work schedule. It is one of the treatments of choice by busy working professionals who want to look their best but don’t have time available to recuperate from more invasive procedures.
What does it improve?
Micro-needling is utilized to improve skin that has been exposed to years of ultra-violet sunlight, which displays altered texture and color, appearing as ‘aged’ or ‘sun-damaged’. It is also used for skin that has been affected by inflamed Acne that exhibits altered texture appearing as pitted ‘scars’.
How does it work?
Micro-needling produces micro-sized channels in the skin. In response to these newly created channels, the body immediately begins a process of regeneration to produce new, healthy skin. It can be combined with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) in order to achieve even greater benefits.
How many treatments are performed?
As with other fractionated resurfacing procedures, usually a series of 4-6 sessions – at intervals of 1 month – is recommended, but this can be customized depending upon your particular concerns and needs. For preventative and anti-aging, treatments are recommended once every 4-6 months.
When can I resume normal activities?
Many will resume most activities, including work, the day following the procedure. Most will be back at work on the second day after treatment. This includes the application of foundation or make-up.
