Elegance Sculpting is the best Microneedling clinic in Parksville. Microneedling is an advanced, minimally invasive procedure that punctures micro-sized holes into your skin, promoting collagen production, thus increasing the appearance of younger skin and assisting with the absorption of skin care products.
We’re leaders in the Microneedling skin revolution, but it’s not just us that are raving about this procedure. A recent study reveals that almost 100 percent of microneedling participants reported a noticeable improvement in their skins’ appearance.
What is Microneeding?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that evenly stimulates the epidermal layer of the skin using micro-tiny needles in either a hand held roller or an electronic pen. The small punctures in the skin stimulate the production of collagen that helps to firm and strengthen skin, resulting in a younger looking appearance.
Microneedling therapy has tremendous benefits for your skin and overall wellbeing. With proper treatment, it can reduce or even eliminate common signs of aging such as wrinkles, loss of skin dexterity, stretch marks, the appearance of scars, and thinning skin. Microneedling activates a vigorous healing process in your body, providing the benefits of younger looking skin.
Although you will see results in as little as one treatment, to experience the most optimal results over time from the Microneedling process it is best to endure a series of treatments. We recommend three treatments, as that is when you will see the best results.
There are no serious side effects of the Microneedling procedure that you should be concerned about. Typically patients will notice redness of the skin for a few hours after the treatment, and some with sensitive skin might experience minimal bleeding. Both are normal reactions to the skin once the procedure is complete.
Start your Microneedling process with a consultation with one of our experienced aestheticians, depending on your skin type there may be precautions that you should take before coming in for your Microneedling treatment. Here are a few things that you should do to prepare for your consultation and your microneedling appointment:
- Discuss the medications that you are currently taking with your aesthetician to ensure that they won’t interfere with your treatment
- Ensure that you are drinking enough water to stay hydrated during the procedure
- Discuss the ways to eliminate any discomfort that you may experience during the procedure
- Avoid any direct sunlight approximately 24 hours prior to your treatment
There are many benefits of the microneedling procedure, including but not limited to; increasing the production of collagen to strengthen and plump your skin, improving the look of scars, clearing signs of rosacea and eliminating wrinkles or sun damage. Microneedling can also help your at-home skin care treatments, the small punctures in the skin can increase absorption, which helps the products work in a more efficient way.
Each individual’s pain tolerance is different, therefore some might experience discomfort during the invasive procedure, and others may think that this process is painful. To eliminate any discomfort we offer numbing cream that can be applied on the targeted area prior to the treatment.
The duration of the Microneedling procedure will depend on the area that is being treated, but on average the procedure typically takes around 30 minutes to complete.
