FAQ

Microneedling is the insertion of very fine short needles into the skin for the purposes of rejuvenation. For those looking to improve the look of scars, boost collagen, tighten skin, lighten brown spots or encourage hair growth, microneedling can offer a minimally invasive solution. We also offer PRP as an add on to your Microneedling session.

Why Is PRP so important and how does it help the Microneedling session?

The addition of PRP from the blood may make microneedling more effective. The liquid in blood is plasma, while platelets are solid. Platelets help blood clot, so they are vital for healing wounds and injuries. Microneedling with PRP is a highly advanced technique that triggers collagen production and makes you feel youthful again as well as helping to heal much faster.

What can I expect after the treatment?

After the procedure, the skin will be red and flushed in a similar way to moderate sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. This will diminish greatly after a few hours following treatments and within the next 24 hours the skin will be completely healed. After 3 days most visible erythema will be absolved. Approximately 48 to 72 hours after the treatment you’ll have an increase in collagen production. It takes at least four weeks to see full results. Usually on day 3 you will notice the ” Microneedle Glow” The new collagen will last for several years, which is why micro needling treatment is considered a very long lasting treatment.

What can be treated by Microneedling?

  • Helps to tighten the skin and restore elasticity to ageing and sun damaged skin

  • Reduces the appearance of stretch marks

  • Softens fine lines on the face, hands and décolleté

  • Thickens the skin to reduce lines and wrinkles

  • Reduction in the appearance of scarring

  • Helps reduce pigmentation marks

What is the process of the Microneedling session?

If you are receiving PRP your blood will be drawn first. Your skin will then be thoroughly cleansed and a topical local anesthetic cream will be applied to the area being treated. This is left on for around 15- 20 minutes to take effect. The cream is removed and the needling starts, which can take anything from 10 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. You are then Masked for about 10min with a sheet mask to help minimize the redness and hydrate the skin. 

How long does it take to see results

Most clients see full results at between four and six weeks following treatment. This gives your body enough time to produce collagen and elastin and to send it to your micro wounds. At this point, you'll notice your skin looking both younger and healthier. However many clients say that after day 3 you can see the 'microneedling glow' and will notice your skin already tighter and brighter looking.

How many sessions will I need?

This will be dependent on a number of factors including age, area being treated, skin condition and damage. In most cases it is usually a course of either 3 or 6 treatments, generally spaced between 4 and 8 weeks apart. It is recommended a one-off treatment is performed every 6 months to maintain the effects.

Are there any side effects from microneedling?

“Most people who eat the standard American ‘goo and glue’ diet have about 5–10 pounds of matter stored in the colon. It’s said that, according to the autopsy, John Wayne had 40 pounds of impacted fecal matter in his body at death. Elvis reportedly had 60 pounds.” One of the simplest ways to lose weight is to cleanse the colon. The colon, according to world famous Dr. Bernard Jensen, carries 4 to 12 pounds of old fecal matter alone. Cleansing the colon is just the beginning of a new level of health. Combined with a proper diet and exercise regime, it may
facilitate weight loss*.

Can Microneedling be performed on any skin color?

Microneedling is suitable for most skin types, however, it is not suitable for clients who:

  • Have used Roaccutane (isotretinoin) within the last 6 months.

  • Have open wounds, cuts or abrasions to the skin.

  • Have had radiation treatment within the last year.

  • Have a current outbreak of herpes simplex (cold sores) active acne, or any other infection or chronic skin condition in the area to be treated.

  • Have areas of the skin that are numb or lack sensation.

  • Are pregnant or breast feeding.

  • Have a history of keloid or hypertrophic scars or poor wound healing.

What does microneedling feel like?

The Microneedling procedure feels similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. Esthetician numbs you as well for your comfort. Expect areas around the eyes and forehead to be a  little more sensitive but the short-time discomfort is well worth the results. 

Can Microneedling help with hair growth?

While microneedling revs up collagen production in the scalp just like it does on the face, it also brings blood flow and nutrients to the scalp and induces new stem cells that support hair growth. Microneedling can boost scalp health in such a way as to treat and prevent hair loss, keeping hair full and healthy for longer. Clients who use microneedling in conjunction with traditional hair loss therapies showed a greater improvement in hair re-growth after only 12 weeks. A typical microneedling session may last 45 minutes to an hour—give or take on how many areas you choose. First, your Esthetician will cleanse your scalp and use high frequency to stimulate the follicles, if you choose to add prp ( which we highly recommend as its your bodies own plasma) that will be added to the scalp along with growth serums and Amplixin and they will begin microneedling by puncturing the skin using an electric FDA approved skin needling pen. Following the procedure, you can expect to see new hair growth in four to six weeks. Most will need several sessions as it can take months to see real growth results. We recommend a series of 4-6 sessions with a return of every 4-6 weeks. Since microneedling is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment, side effects are generally minimal. These include localized swelling and bleeding, soreness a week after treatment, and increased sun sensitivity for up to two weeks post-treatment,

What can I do to prepare for microneedling

Drinking a large amount of water so you are hydrated can benefit the out come as well as the blood draw if you are receiving prp. As well removing all make up prior to the session so your face is ready for the process. Stay away from any harsh exfoliations, or products 48 hours prior to the session. 

Microneedle roller vs. pen? Which is better

The professional pen far outweighs any of the rollers ​

  1. More precise:

Microneedling pens can easily treat those hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, nose and upper lip whereas it is more difficult to reach these areas with traditional rollers.

 

 2. Customised treatment:

Needle depth can be adjusted with Microneedling Pen whereas the Microneedling Rollers can only reach a single depth. The benefit of adjusting needle depth allows us to cater to different areas of the face that require different penetration levels for best results.

This is extremely important when treating specific skin concerns such as acne scarring or delicate areas of the face such as the eye area.

 

3. Less epidermal damage resulting in minimal down time

The needles in Microneedling Pens penetrate the skin vertically whereas with Microneedling rollers the needles penetrate the skin at an angle causing more chance of ‘tears’ through the skin leading to more side effects and therefore longer recovery time.

MICRONEEDLING AFTER CARE

Be In The Know

POST-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS

  • For the first 48 hrs just wash face with water only.  For optimum results do nothing for the 2 days following treatment. This is so no chemicals/ products interfere with the healing process and skin can heal with minimal products being used.

  • You may then start to use the hyaluronic/Vitamin C serum Feel The Heal gives you.This will hydrate the skin and help ward off the sun keeping that hyperpigmentation from coming.

  • As a general rule, you should use sunscreen constantly for the first 2 weeks after microneedling. However the first 48 hours please just try to stay out of the sun so you do not have to apply sunscreen products that may have ingredients that will irritate your new skin ( if you cannot avoid sun then use a thin layer) Make sure to apply sunscreen anytime you go outside in the days following your treatment after the 48 hour window of healing.

  • Don’t spend prolonged time out in the sun for the first week after your microneedling procedure, as you’ll be more prone to sun damage than usual. 

  • Wash your hands before you touch your face. 

  • Don’t put on makeup, especially with a makeup brush that has been used before, in the 48 hours following microneedling. 

  • You’ll also need to avoid swimming pools, saunas, and situations where you might sweat heavily, including intense workouts at the gym, to protect your newly treated skin. After 48 hours have passed OR you are no longer red or sore, you may be able to resume these activities.

WHAT TO AVOID

For the first few days after your microneedling procedure, you’ll need to avoid any skin care product that contains harsh chemicals meant to exfoliate. Avoid anything that’s scented or unnatural, and don’t use glycolic acid or alpha hydroxy acids. 

 Once 2 full days have passed, you can gradually add products back into your daily beauty routine instead of doing your usual regimen, especially if you use products that have strong anti-aging formulas.

Hyaluronic acid can be used following microneedling,  to help stimulate collagen production after your procedure. 

If your skin is feeling dry, it’s generally safe to apply coconut oil as an emollient to lock in moisture and hydrate your face. after microneedling. Diluted, alcohol-free witch hazel may also be used to cleanse dry skin. Stick to using gentle, natural ingredients that you’re familiar with.

WHAT TO EXPECT

After you have a microneedling procedure, some side effects are to be expected. When you leave your appointment, your skin may be flushed or bright red, as if you have spent the entire day out in the sun and have a mild to moderate sunburn. 
The redness and swelling will most likely persist for 24 hours or slightly longer. Even with careful aftercare, there isn’t much you can do to get rid of the redness immediately after microneedling. 
Covering up the redness with makeup is one of the worst things you can do, as the makeup will block the pores on your newly exposed skin and might even cause breakouts. You’ll need to have some patience as the redness subsides, but in the meantime, you can apply the serum given or sheet masks for relief. 
Swelling, some skin peeling, even itching are all considered to be within the realm of normal up to 48 hours after the procedure. Other side effects, like bumps, breakouts, and dry skin, are also within the scope of what you may experience after microneedling, but not everyone will experience them. 
Taking care of your skin with a gentle moisturizer and natural gentle cleansers can make your side effects as minimal as possible.

AFTERCARE FOR MICRONEEDLING FOR HAIRLOSS

It is advisable to only wash hair with clean water for the first 24 hours following the session. This allows the follicles to heal without too many ingredients absorbing. You may then wash your scalp with a gentle shampoo after the 24 hours. We also advice purchasing Amplixin  or Moerie Intensive Biotin Hair Serum and PURA D'OR Anti-Thinning Biotin Shampoo & Conditioner. Keep this routine for a minimum of 6 months.
