Microneedling has become a popular procedure among beauty and cosmetic gurus. Microneedling is a procedure that uses a dermaroller with fine short needles to prick and puncture the skin. The purpose of micro-needling is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, and rejuvenated skin. This treatment targets various skin concerns, including acne scars or wrinkles. Microneedling is mostly used on the face, however, it can be used on different parts of the body. This treatment is minimally invasive, requiring little to no downtime. DCCM has two microneedling devices; AquaGold and the Collagen Pin.
What should I expect during treatment?
When you come in for your appointment, Tara will apply a topical anesthetic to your skin prior to treatment to reduce any pain and discomfort. The microneedling procedure is virtually painless, with only a mild prickling sensation. There are several serums and or proprietary blends the can be used based on your skins condition and goals. We offer Tensage, Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, Botox, Filler and so much more for your procedure. These topical solutions can be combined during various sessions to create a unique and special treatment for you. Your skin will appear pink or red for a couple hours following the treatment, much like a sunburn, with some minor bleeding or bruising possible. Your skin may also feel warm, tight, and itchy for a short while but should subside within 12 to 48 hours. Tara will recommend a post treatment skincare regimen based on your individual skin. This will also help with any redness you might experience due to the treatment.
What should I expect after treatment?
Within the days following your microneedling treatment, you will begin to notice skin dryness and flaking. This is due to an increased turnover of skin cells and is completely natural. It can easily be camouflaged using makeup, just remember to moisturize and use SPF 30 or greater. A few days after the microneedling procedure, you will notice your skin will start to shed. This is caused because microneedling brings the skin to the surface sooner and is working quickly to rejuvenate new tissue.
Within a couple of weeks of your treatment, you will start to notice that your skin is smoother and more radiant. A majority of patients see positive results after one treatment. However, individual results vary depending on individual skin health and needs. Tara will be able to assess and correct any skin concerns you have.
Is at-home microneedling just as effective?
Some people buy at-home microneedling devices to achieve the same results. It may be more cost-effective, however, it is not recommended for treatment. The professional equipment supplied at DCCM is much more effective in helping achieve your desired results, as it is more aggressive and penetrates the skin deeper. At home rollers are in-effective and can cause scaring along with infection as they are used repeatedly without proper cleansing. All of our micro needling devices at DCCM are single use and properly disposed of at the end of each treatment.
