Want clear, brighter, firmer-looking skin? Then Microneedling might be the perfect treatment for you. This non-surgical treatment uses a handheld device that gently punctures the skin’s surface, creating micro-tears that trigger the body’s collagen and elastin production. These results promote sped-up cellular turnover, which can help tighten skin, improve skin tone, and even fade past acne scarring.
If you’re interested but would like to learn more about what to expect after microneedling and how long you should wait before your next session, let’s take a deeper look into the treatment itself.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is the process of applying multiple fine needles to the skin that create microscopic injuries. This minor, controlled damage triggers the healing process by which your body creates new collagen and elastin. These two essential compounds are responsible for keeping your skin firm, healthy, and youthful.
At M Spa Face and Body, we offer two types of Microneedling:
Secret RF Microneedling: This state-of-the-art skin therapy treatment uses radiofrequency and perfectly spaced, gold-plated microneedles, which conduct the controlled high-energy RF waves into the dermis at controlled depths. It safely and efficiently stimulates the natural process of renewal in the skin without the risk of burning, overheating, or further damaging the skin’s surface.
Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma: Platelet Rich Plasma combines microneedling with the added benefits of using the patient’s own blood to rejuvenate the skin and stimulate collagen production.
Plus, because microneedling involves no surgery, there is no downtime or “recovery” period. This means you won’t have to take time off from work, like you would with traditional cosmetic surgery or even more invasive skin treatments like chemical peels.
What To Expect From Your Microneedling Recovery
Because microneedling is considered a minimally invasive treatment, you should expect your skin to appear red and swollen for the first few days following your session. This redness can be covered with makeup, but some clients opt to get their microneedling treatment done on the weekends so that those symptoms aren’t as obvious and are easy to cover on Monday morning when they return to work.
You may also notice that your skin will peel, so prepare to see some flaking within the first week after your procedure. You mustn’t manually peel off flaking skin by picking or exfoliating with a scrub. Let the skin fall off naturally. To help promote faster peeling, you should moisturize and use a gentle cleanser.
How Long Should You Wait Before Your Next Treatment
Microneedling treatments are scheduled about four to six weeks apart. This gives your skin time to heal from your initial procedure. Most clients need anywhere from two to six treatment to see their ideal skin results.
Consider scheduling a microneedling treatment if you suffer from the following skin issues:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sagging Skin
- Acne Scarring
- Uneven Skin Tone
