What are the side effects of microneedling?

What are the side effects of microneedling?

Microneedling is a quick, simple skin treatment that refreshes damaged skin, and keeps it looking youthful.  It is a versatile procedure that treats a variety of skin concerns including wrinkles, large pores, and acne scars.  But how exactly does microneedling work, and what are the side-effects.  

How microneedling works

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment in which a pen-like device fitted with tiny needles is moved across the skin, to even out skin tone and texture (click here to learn more).  

The needles create microscopic channels that force the skin into repair mode, resulting in an increase in the production of collagen within the deep layers.  The new skin that emerges is smoother, clearer, and more youthful.

What are the side effects of microneedling?

Microneedling is well-tolerated by most skin types, and side-effects are usually minimal when the procedure is performed by a board certified dermatologist or licensed aesthetician.

However, some patients may experience minor skin irritation immediately after microneedling, which may last for several days.   There may also be some skin discoloration, as well as mild peeling as the old skin peels away.  Less common side-effects include infection, bruising, dryness, and swelling.

Patients are advised to limit sun exposure in the first few days after microneedling (read more).

Microneedling is not recommended for people with skin conditions such as severe eczema, rosacea, and active acne.  Therefore, if you are thinking about getting microneedling you should schedule a consultation with a board certified dermatologist or licensed aesthetician, to see if you are a good candidate.

How Can I Improve My Skin Tone?

How Can I Improve My Skin Tone?

Is your skin looking dull and lackluster?  If it is, you may be wondering how to improve your skin tone and restore healthy, glowing skin.  Although having a proper skin care routine is important, it is also essential to include cosmetic treatments that can enhance the tone of your skin.

Aging and environmental factors can affect the tone of your skin, and that’s why it becomes dull over time, and loses its youthful luster.  Fractional RF microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that can help even out skin tone.

What is fractional RF microneedling?

Fractional RF microneedling is an innovative skin rejuvenation treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy.

How fractional RF microneedling works

The fractional RF microneedling device has ultrafine needles that puncture the skin and create micro-injuries, while simultaneously delivering RF energy to the deep layers of the skin.  

Fractional microneedling remodels existing collagen fibers and stimulates fresh, new collagen that rebuilds the skin’s support system.  Collagen firms and tightens the skin, and this improves overall skin tone and texture.

Treatment takes approximately 20-30 minutes.

What to expect after treatment

There is generally some mild redness and swelling after fractional RF microneedling, and this may last for a few hours.  The skin is extremely sensitive after treatment, so excess sun exposure should be avoided.

When will you see results after fractional RF microneedling?

Some improvement in skin tone can be seen about 3-4 weeks after treatment, but it can take up to 6 months for maximum results to show.

Will Skin Tightening Work On My Face?

Will Skin Tightening Work On My Face?

Nowadays, there are many options for tightening sagging skin without undergoing a facelift that actually work. But despite this, many people still want to know – will skin tightening work on my face.

Non-surgical skin tightening treatments

Non-surgical skin tightening allows individuals to look and feel younger, with minimal to no downtime.

The most effective skin tightening treatments are able to stimulate collagen production in the deep layers of the skin. Collagen provides structural support for the skin, and helps keep it firm and plump. However, the body produces less collagen with age, and this contributes to the formation of wrinkles, and leads to loss of volume.

Will Skin Tightening Work On My Face?

If you have moderately loose skin, non-surgical skin tightening is likely to work on your face. Skin tightening treatments that use radiofrequency (RF) energy are among the most effective options. If you are looking to tighten facial skin, Profound RF is an excellent choice.

Profound RF is a revolutionary technology that uses temperature controlled radiofrequency and microneedling to tighten the skin. Profound RF helps to remodel and rebuild collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid (learn more).

How Profound works

The device heats the collagen in the dermal layer of the skin causing it to contract. It also triggers an immune response that naturally creates more collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Treatment is typically performed in office, and takes less than an hour to complete.

Profound RF is safe for all skin types, and requires minimal downtime.
