MICRONEEDLING - Option to add on PRP or Exosomes
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment in which very fine, short needles are used to create tiny punctures in the skin. This process stimulates the skin's natural healing response, which can lead to the production of collagen and elastin, the proteins that give skin its elasticity and strength. Microneedling can be used to improve the appearance of a variety of skin concerns, such as acne scars, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. The treatment can also be used to improve the absorption of skincare products, which can help to enhance their effectiveness. One of the main benefits of microneedling is that it is a relatively quick and easy treatment. It is generally considered to be a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of the skin. In terms of how often you should get this treatment, it will depend on your individual skin concerns and goals. Some people may benefit from getting microneedling once a month, while others may only need the treatment once every few months. It is best to discuss your specific needs and goals with a qualified healthcare provider who can recommend the best treatment plan for you.

Days 2-7: Within two (2) days following your Micro-Needling procedure, you will notice skin dryness and flaking. This is due to an increased turnover of skin cells. During this period, you may apply your regular skin moisturizer. Follow the instructions given to you by your medical professional. If your medical professional treated around the eyes, you may have a little micro bruising that may exist for three or four days. This can easily be covered with makeup. Days later, your skin will start shedding. These are skin layers that would regularly shed a week later, but the Micro-Needling brings this skin to the surface sooner. During this temporary process, your skin will shed and be dry. Days 7+: A week after the Micro-Needling procedure, most patients notice that their skin is smoother and more radiant.
