Microneedling

FAQs

  • Benefits?

    Intensifies transdermal delivery of active ingredients in topical preparation

    •  Stimulates circulation and collagen production
    •  Cost effective compared to other resurfacing procedures
    •  Can be performed on all skin types, including ethnic skin
    •  It can be used on all areas of the scalp, face, body including fragile skin like around eyes, mouth and neck
    •  Improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and pore size
    •  Stimulates tissue regeneration by increasing cellular function
    •  Acne scars can be improved as new collagen fibers elevate the depressed scar tissue with the periphery skin
  • 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.

  • Downtime?

    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.

  • Cost?

    $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.

  • Conditions that prohibit the application of micro needling

    •  The use of Accutane (isotretinoin) within the last six months
    •  Open wounds, cuts or abrasions on the skin
    •  Radiation treatments to the skin within the last year
    •  Any kind of current skin infection, such as, herpes simplex in the area to be treated
    •  Are pregnant or breast feeding
    •  Have any history of keloid or hypertrophic scars or poor wound healing
    •  HIV/AIDs or other immunosuppression disease
    •  Cardio Abnormalities
    •  Using anticoagulant medications
  • Anything else I should know before making a decision about trying micro needling?

    •  Immediately post treatment no makeup should be applied so plan on doing this when that is not a factor.
    •  Within a week following your micro needling procedure, you will notice skin dryness and flaking.
    •  No vigorous exercising or activity for at least 48 hours following the treatment is recommended.
    •  Avoid steam baths, saunas, or swimming pools for at least 48 hours following the treatment.
    •  Edema (swelling), and allergic reactions are also possible short term side effects.
