Microneedling FAQs (Part 2)
We have helped hundreds of women and men in Birmingham, West Bloomfield, Troy, and across Oakland County look younger with non-surgical microneedling! In this three part article we answer all of your questions about Microneedling!
What is the down time after Microneedling treatment?
While you may notice some slight inflammation immediately following your microneedling procedure, it is completely temporary and will reduce significantly within the span of a few hours. So you can resume your normal activities immediately.
Typically any inflammation will be reduced after the procedure with the application of the hyaluronic acid serum. Try to avoid the sun for a day or two. After that, if the sun starts to irritate your skin, simply apply a little sunscreen.
Ask your aesthetician when makeup can be worn following your microneedling procedure. Typically it is fine to apply foundation and makeup the next day.
What are the benefits of Microneedling?
Microneedling works on all skin types, and is significantly more cost-effective than other resurfacing procedures.
It is also non-allergenic, and greatly improves the effectiveness of topical anti-aging creams.
As a stimulant of collagen production and blood circulation, it can be beneficial to the scalp, body, and face, particularly the skin around the mouth, neck, and eyes. A microneedling procedure from our West Bloomfield area Med Spa will leave you looking and feeling your best.
Can Microneedling be performed on any skin color?
As West Bloomfield, MI’s leaders in microneedling, AME Med Spa’s microneedling procedure is safe for all skin types and tones when done in a clinical setting. There is generally no risk whatsoever of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.
Does Microneedling Hurt?
Prior to the Microneedling treatment, numbing cream will be applied to minimize any discomfort that is felt during the procedure.
Everyone’s sensitivity and pain tolerance is different. Some patients report feeling only slight pressure or tingling, while others describe a “pin prick” sensation.
How many microneedling treatments do I need?
The number of treatments you will need will depend upon the condition of your skin. You will see results immediately, as well as increasing results over time. Usually patients see significant results after just the first treatment.
It takes roughly 3 treatments for collagen induction, and between 3 and 6 for scar reduction. You should wait about 4 to 6 weeks between treatments before returning to AMAE Med Spa for your next treatment.
How often can Microneedling procedures be repeated?
Microneedling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks, as needed. You will see results immediately, as well as progressive results over time as the skin reacts to the treatment and begins to grow new collagen.
