How many treatments will I need?
Every persons skin is unique so the number of treatments you may need will vary depending on what condition you want treated with micro-needling
How long should it take to see results?
Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 6-8 weeks. Lasting improvement is compounded as each consecutive treatment is performed and combined with the recommened post treatment care.
Is the treatment painful?
A numbing cream can be applied to increase comfort (legally the client must apply the numbing cream themselves, which needs to be applied to the skin for 30-45 minutes prior to treatment).
Is there downtime?
Each clients response is different. You may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. We recommend not exercising and swimming for 24-48 hours after treatment, a light mineral makeup can be applied for the days following.
