Examples of Q & A
Does microneedling hurt?
No. Whilst this treatment uses a number of fine needles, you will only feel slight discomfort during your treatment. This is because the needles used are incredibly small and a numbing cream is also applied to the treated area.
What to expect after your treatment
Typically, you may find that your skin is a little red and/or inflamed for 24 – 48 hours after your treatment, and may peel slightly. This is completely normal and isn’t a cause for concern.
You should avoid direct sun exposure for one week, and avoid any skin products not provided in your aftercare pack for 24-48 hours after your treatment to avoid irritation. You can wear makeup again after 24 hours.
How long does it take to see results?
An initial tightening of the skin and reduction of pores can be seen immediately after microneedling treatment. However, you won’t see the final results for four weeks or more after your treatment. This is because whilst collagen production and cell turnover are both accelerated during the procedure, it still takes your body time to produce new, strong, healthy collagen and for you to see the outer effects of this.
It is important to wear sunscreen daily and use appropriate at-home skincare products in order to maximise the effects of your microneedling treatment. The team is here to help guide you with this and you can find out more information regarding skincare here.
Microneedling treatments can be repeated until you achieve the desired results.
For collagen induction and anti-ageing treatment, 3 treatments are recommended, with a minimum time of 4 weeks between treatments.
For scar reduction, an average of 6 treatments are recommended for a noticeable improvement.
