Microneedling NEWPORT BEACH, CA

There are so many ways we use needles. We sew our clothes with them, we get tattoos with them, we poke our faces with them to be more beautiful. Wait, what? If you’ve never heard of microneedling, you might think it’s a joke. Who would want to purposefully poke little holes in their faces? Thankfully, someone discovered the amazing power of microneedles, because it truly is a powerhouse treatment. If you have hyperpigmentation, scarring, or fine lines that you want smoothed out, then microneedling is a great option for you. Keep reading for some frequently asked questions about this wonder treatment.

How does it work?

Using a small device with very short, very fine needles, we go over the desired area to create small holes in the skin. These tiny holes act like wounds, telling our skin that it needs to heal. The skin goes into repair mode, creating collagen to fill in and heal those little holes. Your skin repairs itself and ends up looking even better than before, leaving you with a more glowing, even-toned complexion.

Microneedling is a controlled treatment, where we are very precise with application. We use a numbing agent to help you be the most comfortable during the treatment. Microneedling also provides a bonus of allowing your favorite products to penetrate more deeply into the skin.

How do I prolong my results?

The micro- channels stay open for six hours so we recommend letting your skin rest for six hours of your treatment. Avoid high heat or things that will make you sweat, like heading to the gym or hitting the sauna. We also recommend using SPF every day to help protect your skin from signs of premature aging like wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.

How often should I come back?

Often, we recommend more than one treatment to give you the best results. Treatments should be spaced out around a month to allow skin the maximum benefits from each appointment.
