Will it hurt?
You’ll experience minimal discomfort, prior to the treatment, a numbing cream (Lidocaine) is applied to minimize any painful sensations.
How long will the treatment take?
Allow 75 minutes.
The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within 2 hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 48 hours.
Risk of post-procedure infections?
Since the tiny micro channels close within one hour, and provided the procedure is done under sanitary conditions, post-op infections are extremely unlikely.
How many treatments before I notice a difference?
There are several factors that determine the answer to this question. A visible improvement in the overall texture and tone of your skin is usually noticeable within a week after one treatment.
A course of 4 to 8 treatments is usually required to achieve optimal results.
What is the frequency of the treatment plan?
Depending on your skin, it can be between 4 - 6 weeks.
I use dermal fillers and botox can I get micro needling?
Yes. That’s the short answer. The long answer is, talk to your doctor because the recommendations on how long to wait until doing a micro needling treatment vary from 6 months to 6 weeks after a dermal filler injection and 4 months to 4 weeks after Botox. The dependencies are your age, health, quality and volume of the injected product and your skin’s natural capacity to heal.
Are there any other costs?
Yes and no depending on your daily skincare practice. Good daily care products including a cleanser, serum, moisturizer and sunscreen will cost between $200 - $400 for a 3-4 month supply. If you already are using quality skincare products, then this is not an additional charge.
$300 per treatment. This compares favorably to the average Seattle cost of laser resurfacing treatments of $2500 and your skin is getting more of an overall benefit.
