Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a device with tiny needles to create small punctures in the skin. The punctures stimulate the body’s natural healing process and promote the production of collagen and elastin, which can improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation and wrinkles, and minimize the appearance of scars and other skin imperfections.
The level of discomfort associated with microneedling can vary depending on the individual’s pain tolerance and the depth of the treatment. A topical numbing cream can be applied prior to the procedure to help minimize any discomfort and we also provide Pronox, a patient-controlled analgesia system that delivers a mixture of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oxygen through a handheld device.
Pronox is used to provide pain and anxiety relief, and you can definitely drive after waiting at least 20-30 minutes after usage.
It can take several weeks to see the full results of microneedling, as the body’s natural healing process takes time. However, many patients notice an improvement in their skin texture and appearance within a few days of the treatment.
The number of microneedling sessions needed can vary depending on the individual’s skin condition and desired outcomes. Generally, a series of 3-6 treatments spaced several weeks apart is recommended for optimal results.
After a microneedling treatment, the skin may be red, swollen, and slightly tender to the touch. These symptoms typically subside within a few days. It is important to avoid sun exposure and harsh skincare products for several days after the treatment to avoid irritation and promote healing.
Microneedling can be done on most areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and hands. However, it is important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider, like our staff, to determine if microneedling is appropriate for the specific area of concern.
