What is Micro-needling?
Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, involves repetitive puncturing of the skin with sterilized microneedles. Professional micro-needling allows for the sterile, one-time use needles to enter at a perfect 90-degree angle which causes less damage to your skin when compared to derma-rollers.
What is the cost for Micro-needling?
A Microneedling Facial treatment is $150.00 (or 100.00 if you are a Glow Getter Member)
A Microneedling Scar Softening treatment’s cost will vary based on the size and severity of the scar.
How does Micro-needling work?
As a healing response, your own growth factors are regenerated which stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
What conditions can Micro-needling treat?
Micro-needling is used to treat scarring and wrinkles, enable skin rejuvenation, and improve skin appearance.
Micro-needling may be used to enhance treatment for raised (hypertrophic) scars. Flattened scars are easier to treat, as when they are raised the pigmentation runs/migrates farther than the desired treatment area. Raised scars form most often at the sites of pimples, body piercings, cuts, surgical incisions and burns.
What can I expect with a Micro-needling treatment?
You can expect mild pain, redness and some pinpoint bleeding which often resolves within 24 hours.
What kind of results can I look forward to after micro-needling?
After 6 treatments over 3 months, Acne Scar Treatment with Micro-needling Resulted in:
- a 51%–60% improvement in scar appearance
- a 40%–50% improvement in skin texture, and
- an 80%–85% overall satisfaction
Do you recommend pairing micro-needling with other treatments?
Yes, studies show significant improvement in skin texture, scarring, and a reduction in hyperpigmentation when patients were treated with the combined approach of alternating between micro-needling and glycolic acid peels (Glow peel or HydraFacial) when compared to just micro-needling treatments alone.
