Microneedling is a state-of-the-art, medical-grade treatment used to improve a variety of skin conditions including scars, fine lines, and wrinkles on the face and body via the body's natural self-repair process. Hundreds of tiny micro-injuries are created in the dermis by tiny needles, triggering natural collagen and elastin production, allowing 80% more absorption of topical nutrients. The increased absorption of active ingredients into the skin creates enhanced repair and faster re-surfacing results.*

This treatment is safe and effective for patients of all skin types and the versatile cordless design allow for the treatment of many different areas including the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.

Microneedling causes less trauma and skin damage than other treatments, reducing pain and discomfort, making it safer and more effective. The disposable needles eliminate the risk of cross-contamination, while the adjustable needle depths allow for a treatment tailored to your individual needs. Microneedling is so advanced, that it is even recommended for use in delicate and hard to reach areas such as around the eyes and lips and on the nose.

Advanced skin needling promotes scar-less healing and increased production of normal woven collagen, similar to fractional laser treatments, but without the side effects and downtime. It has also been found to be more effective and beneficial than most microdermabrasion and chemical peels.*

For optimal results, a period of effective active treatment creams, such as Vitamin A, C or Resveratrol & Procyanidin are recommended to allow the skin’s strength to build-up (especially for thin or delicate skin areas). Continue to use these recommended treatment solutions after microneedling treatments for a period of up to six weeks.

You will typically see results after the first treatment. Lasting, and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart). Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended post treatment care.*

For minimum needle depths microneedling treatments are virtually painless. Treatments over 0.5mm deep, may require a topical anesthetic cream to be applied for 15-40 minutes before the procedure. This will greatly reduce any chance of discomfort.

Generally, there is no downtime required after treatment, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities after the treatment. Application of a breathable camouflage will seal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.*

It is recommended to wait at least 4 days after the filler injections, so that any post treatment bruising from the filers can settle. It is also possible to have your microneedling treatment 1-2 days before having fillers injected.

Your clinician will apply a suitable topical treatment to compliment your advanced skin needling. Between treatments, continue using recommended products as directed to maintain results. DP Dermaceuticals MicroDerm exfoliator is one option for gentle but effective resurfacing between treatments.

For best results, it’s important to keep your skin hydrated and protected from the harsh environment to make it healthy and strong. Your Orlando Skin Care esthetician can recommend a topical cream specially created to enhance your microneedling treatment results and help repair the skin following the procedure. If you’ll be exposed to the sun always wear appropriate sun protection.

It’s unlikely you’ll have any side effects after your treatment. However, if you do experience redness or sensitive skin, the use of a post procedure, breathable makeup is recommended. This will help you get back to your everyday activities without anyone suspecting you have even had a treatment. In addition, makeup camouflage coverage can also work as sun protection for the skin.

Check with your clinician before proceeding with a microneedling procedure if you are: pregnant, using blood thinners, such as warfarin, or if you are susceptible to keloiding skin. Do not treat over keloid scars, active problematic skin, such as severe solar keratosis, warts, Rosacea, Eczema or Psoriasis.
