WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Individual results may vary
Microneedling is a dermaroller procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores.
age spots (also called “sun spots”)
fine lines and wrinkles
other types of scars
reduced skin elasticity
uneven skin tone
It’s considered effective in treating minor scarring related to acne, wounds, and aging. You’ll likely notice brighter, firmer skin, too.
Ideal results are achieved after multiple sessions.
Microneedling is far more effective than at-home rollers.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Microneedling isn’t invasive like plastic surgery, so the recovery time is minimal. Most people require very little downtime, if any at all.
You may notice skin irritation and redness within the first few days following the procedure. This is a natural response to the small “injuries” made by the needles in your skin. Some people apply camouflaging makeup during the first few days as the redness dissipates.
After microneedling, your skin works fairly quickly to rejuvenate new tissue. In theory, you should see results within a couple of weeks. Your skin will also be more sensitive to the sun, so sunscreen is a must.
To maintain the results of your treatment, you’ll need multiple sessions and perhaps other complementing treatments. At Dling, our medical team will advise you on the best plan of action based on your individual goals.
