Anti-aging treatments aren’t in short supply with popular procedures like BOTOX and skin tightening catching the public’s fancy.
One such treatment is Automated Microneedling; an FDA-approved technique that is able to treat fine lines, acne scars and significantly improve the skin’s overall texture and colour.
A question we’re often asked is; How long until you see the results of Microneedling? There is noticeable improvement after the first or second session, with more significant results appearing after the third. Even after your treatments are done, the skin continues to improve over the next six to 12 months if you follow a good skincare routine.
Lux Bright Medica is a trusted medical aesthetic clinic in Maple, with the expertise to make your anti-aging microneedling treatment a success. Since it is a relatively new cosmetic method aimed at rejuvenation and improvement, it’s important to approach a clinic that performs under the highest standards of medical safety. Book your appointment with us and we’ll help you decide if you are a good candidate for this treatment.
The esthetician will use a device called DermaPen which finely pierces the skin to stimulate collagen production and self-healing. The device delivers the therapeutic serum into the epidermal barrier so that deep-tissue healing is able to occur.
What are the benefits of Microneedling?
– Lifting effect, wrinkle reduction, skin hydration
– Resurfaces skin scars
– Evens out hyperpigmented areas
– Rosacea reduction
– Tightens skin pores
– Improves blood circulation
– Improves topical cream efficacy and penetration
Microneedling uses non-allergenic needles, making it ideal for all skin types as well as treatment areas; body, face (around the eyes and mouth) and scalp.
The esthetician will clean and numb the skin and also use a collagen-inducing product like Vitamin C serum or a regular skin lightener. The DermaPen is made up of 12 microscopic needles that create small punctures in the skin.
Based on the area targeted, the esthetician will adjust the position and speed of the needles to allow for greater absorption of the product and more effective piercing. In order to hydrate, heal and protect the skin post-treatment, Vitamin C serum or Hyaluronic acid are used.
Are there any downtimes after the Microneedling treatment? You might notice temporary inflammations on the treated areas but that should go down within the next few hours. A pinker hue on the skin could still persist for about 48 hours. We strongly urge you to use minimal makeup and wear sunscreen if you’re going out immediately following the treatment.
Dermatologists confirm that this procedure can safely be repeated after four to six weeks. Collagen production needs at least three sessions and scar reduction can take anywhere between three and six sessions.
The actual number of treatments depends on the conditions you want to treat and the severity of your case. Results will, in most cases, begin manifesting after the first session.
Lux BrightMedica has performed countless medical aesthetic treatments under the highest standards of medical excellence. You can expect a warm and friendly atmosphere, comfortable treatment measures and most importantly – results that you’ll absolutely love!
