Microneedling

WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?

Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a cosmetic treatment used to address various skin conditions. The technique involves moving a pen-like device composed of micro sterile needles over the skin. When passed back and forth across the skin, it creates controlled, microscopic injuries, which stimulate collagen. While the micro-channels are open, a Microneedling solution is topically applied and pushed into the skin to further promote healing and enhance the anti-aging benefits.

ON WHICH AREAS OF THE BODY CAN A MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT BE PERFORMED?

This minimally invasive treatment can be done on any area of the body, although the most requested areas are the face, neck, décolletage, and hands. Due to the small Microneedling tip, we find it especially beneficial for small areas around the eyes and lips to help with creepiness, dark circles, and smoker’s lines. Stretch marks and surgical scars on the body can also be diminished with Microneedling.

ARE MICRONEEDLING TREATMENTS SAFE?

Microneedling is a scientifically evidenced and FDA-cleared technique. Although this is a simple and safe procedure, not all Microneedling treatments are the same. The speed of the device, the number of needles, the type of solution used, along with the level of the provider’s experience will determine the efficacy of the treatment. At Selfcare Esthetics, we use an advanced medical-grade micro-needling device that meets the FDA’s regulatory compliance.

WHAT SOLUTIONS ARE USED DURING THE TREATMENT?

We use pure hyaluronic acid containing no harmful ingredients such as parabens, sulfates, and dyes which are commonly used in other micro needling solutions.

We also incorporate specialized serums depending on the client’s skin needs to add efficacy to the micro-needling treatment. This combination dramatically magnifies the rejuvenating effects of your micro-needling session.

WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING RECOVERY LIKE?

Microneedling treatment is non-invasive, is performed quickly, and is well-tolerated, with a quick recovery time. Immediately after the treatment, the skin will feel like a sunburn, which will dissipate after a few hours. Over the next 2-3 days, some swelling, redness, and dryness are normal. Some people may also experience light flaking as the cells are turning over. The downtime depends on how aggressive the treatment settings are.

We recommend that clients keep their skin well-hydrated and protected with physical sunscreen. Clients may resume their normal skin care regimen, including any Retin-A, once their skin is back to baseline.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED TO SEE RESULTS?

Microneedling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction, we recommend starting with 3-4 treatments but with a minimum separation time of 4-6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction, an average of 3-6 treatments are recommended.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR MICRONEEDLING?

What we love about micro-needling is that almost anyone is a candidate for this treatment! Anyone who has healthy skin and wants to treat and improve conditions such as acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues can consider micro needling as an option.

People with skin diseases, active acne, or unstable skin type are not ideal candidates for micro-needling treatment.

Today I had a facial at SelfCare Esthetics with Sissi. She was amazing . She first asked me my skin care routing and tried to understand my skin so she could give me feedback. All the products were fantastic. I scheduled my next facial right away.
