At Skin & Body Refinery
The experienced and skilled estheticians at Skin & Body Refinery are proud to offer a wide range of medical spa services including microneedling. Microneedling can also be combined with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy to further improve skin tone and texture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling is a process that uses a sterile needle-tip which contains 12 microneedles to create a series of tiny injuries to the surface of the skin. These micro-injuries work to initiate the skin’s natural repair process by encouraging the skin to produce collagen and elastin. These two components are responsible for smoothing wrinkles and fine lines, and diminishing acne scars and other skin imperfections. The micro-channels created during the treatment are ideal for allowing the maximum absorption of topical skin applications and PRP (platelet rich plasma therapy) to further enhance the effects in the deepest layers of the skin.
Microneedling Downtime, Aftercare & Healing Process
Many of our clients describe the microneedling procedure as what they would imagine sandpaper to feel like it if were scrubbed across the skin. Your Skin & Body Refinery skin specialist will apply a topical numbing product over the surface of your skin before beginning your procedure to eliminate any discomfort. There is no need for anesthesia or medications.
Your skin will be flushed and red and feel somewhat similar to moderate sunburn. Redness can last between 12 to 72 hours. Some patients experience mild swelling, peeling and skin tightness which typically resolves within 72 hours. Your healing time will depend on the depth of your treatment, your skin condition and your skin type. Most of our clients completely heal within 24 hours.
How Long Does it Take to See Results from Microneedling?
Many of our patients experience a visible improvement in the appearance of their skin within 2 to 6 weeks with continued improvements over the next six months. In most cases, a series of 3 to 6 treatments every 4 to 6 weeks is necessary to achieve the best is necessary to achieve the best possible results. Some skin conditions such as extreme acne scarring and deep wrinkles may need between 6 to 8 treatments.
