Needling Treatment Information

Microneedling is a Collagen Induction procedure that uses micro needles to create surface trauma by puncturing the skin. In doing so it boosts collagen and elastin production to promote rapid skin-cell turn over and revitalizes the treated areas.  This minimally invasive procedure reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, scars, texture, and hyperpigmentation.  
(A 36-needle or a 12-needle cartridge will be used during the procedure)
Nano Needling is a Skin Refining procedure that uses nano needles to create hundreds of thousands of nanoscopic channels in the skin's barrier to stimulate collagen and elastin production while promoting rapid skin-cell turn over. Smoothes and Refines skin imperfections. Reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Diminishes hyper pigmentation and sun damage. Overall restores and improves the health of the skin.
Benefits of Needling:
Restores and improves the health of the skin
Collagen production
Reduces the appearance of:
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles

  • Stretch marks
  • Texture
  • Hyperpigmentation/Sun Spots  
What to expect from a needling appointment?
The designated area is cleansed, and a numbing cream is applied to allow a more comfortable treatment. The skin is then prepped for the needling procedure to begin. The Esthetician will apply product to the skin and begin to move the tool along the designated area to penetrate the skin.  This will continue until the designated areas have been completely treated. If there are areas that require more attention the Esthetician may revisit those areas completing added passes to aid in the restoration of that area. The skin may experience erythema (superficial reddening of the skin) or possible pinpoint bleeding in the treated areas. Once the procedure is completed additional products are applied to the treated area. The client is provided a post care kit and after care instructions. 
Additional Information:
  • Needling is safe on all skin types. This makes it an excellent option for patients with darker skin tones for whom laser and other treatments may not be safe.
  • Most people require three to six treatments for optimal results. Treatments are generally scheduled three to six weeks apart.
  • Not everyone is a good candidate. Microneedling isn’t recommended for folks with a history of keloid scars, scleroderma, collagen vascular disease, fungal infections, or a history of eczema and psoriasis. It’s also not recommended if you’re immunosuppressed, pregnant, or nursing.
  • Healing time may take a few days or weeks to heal. It will vary with each client.
  • Expect some post-procedure redness and tenderness after each treatment.
  • One may also experience a feeling of tightness in the first day or two after the treatment.  Peeling of the skin may occur as the regeneration process takes place. 
  • Other side effects may include bruising and scabbing post-procedure due to possible pinpoint bleeding during the procedure.
  • The difference between Nano Needling and Micro Needling is the diameter of the needle and depth of penetration by the needles during the procedure.
