How many treatments will it take to see results from microneedling?

The immediate result is slight swelling of the tissue underneath the face, which makes the skin look tighter and smoother almost instantly. This however will go away when the swelling reduces in one to two days. Don't be discouraged! If you're looking for anti-aging, wrinkle prevention, to reduce chronic acne or scar tissue the longer lasting effect will be noticeable after a minimum of four treatments.

Is microneedling safe?

Microneedling is a chemical-free, natural approach to skin health without the potential risks and downtime of more invasive cosmetic procedures. Most patients do not experience any complications. However, a small amount of bleeding, bruising or puffiness may occasionally occur. Microneedling is not recommended for Type II diabetics and those with bleeding disorders

How to prepare for treatment? & Tips for maximizing your results:

  • Drink plenty of water before and after treatment and eat a small, healthy meal beforehand
  • Discontinue use of intense topical treatments such as Retinol at least three days prior to treatment
  • Remove all makeup and wash face with warm water and a light cleanser before treatment if possible
  • Avoid putting lotion on the face the same day before treatment
  • Plan to get microneedling on a day when you don't have to do a lot so you can rest afterward
  • Avoid sitting in the sunlight for long periods of time for at least three days before and after treatments. Microneedling causes the skin to be vulnerable to sun damage. Wear chemical-free mineral sunscreen with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide protection every day
  • Providing the body with nourishing foods every day, avoiding sugar, alcohol, and refined foods are all good ways to maintain healthy skin
  • Provide the skin with a high-dose of nutrients and hydration to keep it healthy and functioning at its optimal level. For more advice on nutrition, ask your acupuncturist how to help your treatments last longer. Herbal therapy may be recommended to reduce fatigue and promote blood circulation to complement the facial acupuncture
  • Drink at least 80oz of water per day to maintain healthy skin
