Hollywood's Best Kept Secret
Am I a good candidate for micro-needling?
Micro needling is a very safe and effective treatment to improve your skin, regardless of skin type. The depth of the micro needle can be adjusted to meet your individual needs and goals. Due to its low-risk profile, micro needling is a good option for people who aren’t good candidates for lasers, such as those prone to hyper pigmentation. Micro needling is also very powerful for treating scars and stretchmarks on the face and body.
How Is micro-needling performed?
First, we double cleanse, then we apply a strong topical numbing cream to the treatment area for optimal comfort. We then insert a new, sterile cartridge containing micro-needles into the Micro Pen and set the depth based on your skin’s unique needs.
What does micro-needling feel like?
Since we apply a strong topical numbing cream prior to the treatment, discomfort is significantly lessened. Micro-needling feels like light sandpaper being moved across the skin.
How long does the procedure take?
We allow the topical numbing to work for 20-25 minutes, depending on your sensitivity. The micro-needling treatment takes about 15-20 minutes for the face. Afterwards, we apply a soothing peptide mask on the treated skin for about 10 minutes, and placed under an LED light therapy.
What is the downtime after micro-needling?
The downtime is minimal with only 1-3 days of mild redness, dryness and light peeling, depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment. Using our post-treatment kit will help speed your recovery.
When will I see results after the micro-needling treatment?
You’ll notice an immediate glow and the tone and texture of your skin will continue to improve over the next few weeks. Collagen production will continue over the next six months.
How many treatments are needed for optimal results?
We recommend a series of at least three treatments about four to six weeks apart. A yearly maintenance treatment will help maintain your results.
