FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does it work?
As the micro-needling device stamps over your skin, it creates micro-point punctures in the skin, the majority of which are simply pushing your pores open temporarily. This is perceived by the body as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin. Your skin will then react to the injury by initiating the healing process.
Your skin normally assumes that scars, stretch marks and wrinkles are repaired, but with micro-needling treatments, the skin is tricked into repairing itself.
How long does it take to see results?
Results can be seen within a week or even a few days. Your skin naturally heals itself every 45 days, so with a little micro-needling stimulation changes can be dramatic and fast.
What will my skin look like after the treatment?
After the procedure your skin will be red and flushed in appearance similar to a mild sunburn. You will also experience tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. This will diminish greatly after a few hours following treatment and within the next 24 hours the skin will be completely healed. After 3 days there is barely any evidence that the procedure has taken place.
