What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy. The treatment involves using a device to create thousands of tiny wounds on the surface of the skin. These small wounds then trigger your body’s healing process, producing collagen and elastin. This results in improved skin texture and a reduction in wrinkles and scarring.
Who is a good candidate?
Microneedling is safe for all skin types and anyone looking to improve their skin’s quality and appearance.
What skin conditions will benefit you?
- Loose and lax skin
- Large pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Surgical scars
- Stretch marks
- Hair loss
How many treatments are needed?
Significant results can typically be seen after three to four sessions. More may be needed depending on your goals. Microneedling can also be done as preventative maintenance. Intermittent treatments help reduce the signs of aging by continuing to stimulate collagen formation.
When will I see the results?
You can expect to see the maximum effect of a treatment session after about 3 months. You may see some results after a few weeks.
Does it hurt?
Prior to the procedure, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area for about 20 to 30 minutes. This numbing cream will greatly reduce any discomfort.
Why can’t I do it at home?
Glow Laser & Beauty Center has clinical strength stamp microneedling machines that are equipped with the industry’s newest radiofrequency technology, such as the InMode Morpheus8 machine. Microneedling procedures at Glow provide deeper, more targeted treatments with less pain and superior results compared to home options.
What will I look like after?
Your skin may be red and flushed with small pinpoint bleeding. This will mostly improve within a few hours and be gone by the next day. You may apply makeup right after if needed.
How can I maximize the benefit?
The treatment can be combined with natural growth factors such as a platelet-rich plasma or other serums to enhance the benefit. Ask us about our recovery products.
