It’s not surprising that microneedling is a favourite treatment among Hollywood’s elite as well as our valued patients (who get pampered like celebrities in our talented hands). Medical microneedling is clinically proven to be one of the most successful non-invasive treatments for anti-aging facial rejuvenation. These are just a few of the many perks of this procedure:
Medical microneedling works with the award-winning, patented technology of the Eclipse MicroPen® which catapults the skin into its natural healing process, causing an abundance of collagen and elastin production, which are essential for plumping the skin, increasing blood flow to the face, and making the skin more elastic and firm.
Microneedling works by making tiny punctures in the first layer of the skin. This controlled damage is what stimulates the healing process. Essentially, medical microneedling involves temporarily penetrating and wounding your skin so it renews itself and gives you a refreshed, illuminated appearance.
Medical microneedling is an ideal treatment to treat a wide range of skin issues for any skin type. If you have any of the following areas of concern (or a combination of them), microneedling may be a fantastic skin rejuvenation option for you:
If any of these skin concerns bother you when you, medical microneedling can address them and improve your skin’s appearance.
When you arrive at your microneedling appointment, your medical aesthetician will begin your session by applying a topical numbing cream to the areas of the face that your treatment is targeting to keep you comfortable.
Microneedling involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles. The small micro wounds cause your skin to produce more collagen and elastin, which heal your skin and help your skin look bright and firm. Boosted collagen production reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, as well as improving your skin’s texture and tone, for a brighter and more youthful complexion.
After your treatment, we recommend a series of 3 to 6 treatments based on what you’d like to treat and skin type. Each session should be spaced anywhere between 4-6 weeks apart depending on treatment plan provided by medical aesthetician.
Your medical microneedling experience begins with a complimentary consultation at 8 West Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Clinic to assess your skin and determine the best treatment plan that’s best for your unique needs.
Many patients have the same question: how long does it take to see the results from microneedling? Right after a microneedling treatment, your skin will be a little flushed and pink for around 12 hours, and it might feel dry and tight for a short while.
The day after your treatment you’ll notice that your skin is nice and plump and that it has a beautiful glow to it, which is a result of temporary swelling. You’ll be able to resume your usual skincare routine and other activities the next day.
After your full results take effect, your skin will benefit from the following:
Patients who want to accentuate the results of their microneedling may choose additional treatments to add volume to hollowed areas or to contour and add definition to the cheeks or jawline. Dermal fillers are an excellent choice for achieving these results. Some patients desire an all-over “lifted” look, making a non-surgical facelift another complementary treatment that brings out the best in how you look and feel.
