How Does Microneedling Work?
Your aesthetic expert will use a microneedling device to create areas of micro-damage in the skin. These narrow channels are surrounded by healthy skin, which immediately starts signaling to the other cells to respond to an injury. In response, skin cells speed up new cell growth and begin producing more collagen.
What to Expect After a Microneedling Treatment
Immediately after microneedling, you will experience redness and sensitivity. Many people describe it as feeling like a sunburn. These symptoms decrease within hours and will resolve within 24 to 48 hours. You can help your skin heal after treatment by:
- Avoiding sun exposure, which hinders collagen development
- Using a gentle cleanser and avoiding hot water
- Applying a dermatologist-recommended, fragrance-free moisturizer
We recommend continuing to protect your skin from the sun to help your results last longer. A good skincare routine will also prolong results.
