How Does Microneedling Work
Microneedling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue. This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture.
What Is Microneedling Used For ?
Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, skin texture, discoloration and large pores. It can also be used on other parts of the body including the neck, chest, abdomen and buttocks.
How Many Treatments Will I Need ?
Most people need between three and six treatments to see their final results. For younger people, one to two treatments are often enough. It all depends on your body’s unique cellular turnover rate, your age, and how you’ve treated your skin in the past.
How Long Should It Take Before I See Results?
Normally you will see results immediately following the first treatment, while more visible changes will appear over the course of several weeks. More substantial results will become noticeable after 4-6 treatments. Your skin condition will continue to improve over the span of 6-12 months, following a series of treatments, especially when combined with the recommended post-care treatment.
Is The Treatment Painful?
This depends on the treatment intensity. Vistapen treatments are relatively painless at a lower needle depth; however, the depth of penetration is critical for certain treatments to achieve optimal results.
Is There Downtime After Treatments?
Most patients can continue normal daily activities immediately following treatment. While this varies from patient to patient, some experience a degree of facial redness/irritation up to 24 hours post-procedure
