Microneedling is a procedure that can help encourage your skin to create new collagen and elastin, helping your skin look smooth, renewed, and healthy. It rejuvenates your skin by using tiny needles to puncture the top layer of your skin, which trigger collagen and elastin production.
How does Microneedling work ?
Using a device that cause patterns of tiny holes that stimulate healing in the skin. This healing process rejuvenates the skin, producing healthier looking skin and an even texture and tone.
What can Microneedling treat ?
Symptoms include uneven skin texture and pigmentation, scars, aged skin, fine lines and wrinkles and stretch marks.
What is a microneedling session like ?
About an hour before treatment, your dermatologist will apply a topical anesthetic to reduce discomfort. Then a handheld device is carefully used to make a pattern of pin pricks in your skin, promoting collagen production. The entire treatment typically takes a half hour – followed by an after treatment, a serum or calming treatment will be applied to your skin.
What results can be expected from microneedling?
Forefront dermatologists are expertly trained to administer microneedling treatments. Due to their training, they are able to ensure maximum effectiveness by getting deeper into the skin, further stimulating the healing process.
Microneedling recovery takes about three days.
