Does it hurt?
Prior to your Dermal needling treatment, an anesthetic cream is applied to numb your skin. You will feel the Pen/roller on your skin, so you will feel sensation, but no pain.
How Many Treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed does vary depending on the condition being treated, but the following are very good guidelines:
· Acne Scarring 4-6 Treatments, 6 weeks apart.
· Skin Rejuvenation/Collagen Induction 4-6 Treatments, 4 weeks apart.
What can I expect after treatment?
The treated area will be red for 12-48 hours and your skin may feel warmer and tighter than usual. You should keep your face free of make-up that day. After that the redness can be minimized with a concealer. The skin may flake slightly 2-3 days after the procedure.
How long do the results last?
The results from micro-needling skin remodeling can go on for months after each Dermal needling treatment. Results can be seen from one to eight weeks later. Typically you will see results after your first treatment.
Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4-6 treatments when spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Your skin naturally heals itself every 45 days, so with micro-needling stimulation changes can be effective and ongoing. Full effects of skin tightening might not show until 6months after your last treatment.
Should I Prepare My Skin Before Having A Dermal needling Treatment?
For faster recovery times and optimal results we recommend using an effective active treatment cream with Vitamin A and C for a period pre and post treatment to allow your skin to build up the levels of these vitamins needed to optimise healing and repair.
If treating a specific skin condition such as acne, scars or pigmentation, then other pre & post products will be recommended.
