Microneedling is an extremely effective procedure to improve acne scars, stretch marks, hyper pigmentation, and fine lines.
It can be used on all parts of the body, including the abdomen, legs and back. It is a procedure that involves applying a topical numbing cream to the area for 25-20 min. Then the microneedling pen will be applied to the skin with 12 tiny micro points. These points will then go over the skin and be used with either hyaluronic acid or plasma from your blood to allow these products to penetrate the skin.
Immediately after the procedure, the skin will appear bright red. This may continue for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours. Patients may start to see an immediate “glow” to their skin, more visible changes can occur over the source of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO WE NEED?
Some patients may only require treatment once a year. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive 3 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart. For more significant skin concerns such as acne scars or hyper pigmentation, more sessions may be needed
