Microneedling

by | Nov 9, 2018

 

This is a video of me getting a medical grade microneedling treatment in my office. ⠀

Microneedling helps stimulate collagen production by poking thousands of tiny holes in the skin using sterile needles. Unlike a laser, there is no heat generated, so the procedure is safe for all skin types. We usually recommend a series of 4-6 treatments spaced about a month apart to optimize the results.⠀

The procedure helps improve the appearance of fine lines and improves skin texture. It can also help with mild acne scarring.⠀

After the procedure, the skin is really red for a day or two. Many patients go to work the next day, but I suggest taking a day off (if possible) after your first treatment to see how your skin responds.⠀

I have patients sit with numbing cream for 30-60 mins before the procedure to make it as comfortable as possible. It hurts a little at times but not bad. I’m a guy and I can do it!
