MICRONEEDLING STARTING FROM $349
Microneedling is a skin treatment that uses the power of your natural immune system to create beautiful results. It is a minimally invasive procedure that can improve the appearance of a wide range of common skin complaints.
Microneedling works by using thin, sterile treatment needles to create tiny channels into the deeper layers of your skin. As the handheld treatment wand moves across the surface of your skin, the needles move in and out rapidly.
Your body perceives each of those channels as a micro-injury and rushes to launch a swift healing response. Circulation in the area increases and new collagen cells are created. This serves to plump and smooth your skin and breaks apart hyperpigmentation and scar tissue.
You can also incorporate platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into your microneedling treatments. PRP is a solution created from a small sample of your own blood. It’s filled with special proteins called growth factors that promote swift cell production and enhance healing.
Microneedling can improve the appearance of several different skin conditions, all with the same treatment. That makes it a great return on your investment as opposed to having multiple treatments to address different skin needs.
Some of the issues that microneedling can treat include:
During your consultation, you can discuss your treatment goals with Dr. Bokhari. He’ll guide you toward the options best suited for your needs and explain how microneedling can help.
A degree of swelling, redness, and tenderness is to be expected after microneedling. There is no significant pain associated with the treatment itself or the recovery process.
Over-the-counter pain medication can reduce discomfort if needed. Within a couple of days, your skin will feel normal. It’s important to use a high-quality sunscreen to protect your skin after microneedling.
It takes time to see the results of microneedling. In the weeks following your treatment, your body will produce new collagen, and you’ll begin to notice a plumping and smoothing effect. While you’ll see a difference after just one treatment, a series of microneedling treatments is often needed for optimal results.
