Microneedling Facials A few Quick Facts
You might be considering microneedling to minimise signs of ageing, sun damage or to improve skin tone, texture and to improve the appearance of your skin.
Microneedling is an amazing and effective treatment but there are a few common misconceptions about microneedling facials to keep in mind!
The microneedling process helps create tiny micro- injuries to trigger a healing response from the skin. Only once your skin has healed from the woulds and has had time to stimulate the extra collagen with you see the benefit from your treatment. This means results may no be visible until 4-6 weeks after your microneedling treatment. If you expect result right away you may be disappointed, After microneedling your face will be red, there may be some pinprick bleeding, your face may feel very hot. Those are all normal responses that we expect to see post microneedling. MORE BLEEDING THE BETTER A common misconception with microneedling is that there should be alot of bleeding during a treatment otherwise its not going to be very effective. Its just simply not the case!
It is perfectly normal to experience pinprick bleeding and even some mild swelling but using an extreme needle depth will not induce additional collagen production and may even damage the skin.
