Non-invasive treatments are growing in popularity as they can now effectively rejuvenate the skin and fight signs of aging without requiring surgery. FacesFirst offers microneedling as a solution for many skin concerns.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a treatment that consists of creating micro-injuries in the skin through the use of tiny needles. FacesFirst uses the Procell Device, a professional microneedling tool, for this treatment.

Before treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the skin to reduce any discomfort. During the microneedling treatment, your esthetician will apply AnteAge Serum which can more deeply penetrate the skin because of the new microchannels that are created and further the production of collagen. And after treatment, a soothing, hydrating mask is applied to the skin.

Microneedling rejuvenates the skin by encouraging collagen production. As the body works to heal the micro-injuries created by the needles, new cells and collagen-rich tissues are created. The result is firmer, smoother, more elastic, and brighter skin. The treatment also creates a more even skin tone and texture.

Who is a Candidate for Microneedling?

Microneedling is a safe procedure for most people who are in generally good health. However, those who are taking certain medications, such as acne medications, or who are pregnant should not undergo microneedling. Discuss any of your health concerns during a consultation to determine if microneedling is right for you.

Microneedling can be an effective treatment for those dealing with:

  • Signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles
  • Scarring, including acne scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Skin Texture

Microneedling Results

Final results from microneedling are not visible until several weeks have past, allowing for new collagen development. The skin will then appear firmer, smoother, brighter, and more even in tone and texture and best when done in a series of 3-6 treatments about 4-6 weeks apart.

Immediately following microneedling treatment, it’s typical to experience some redness and irritation. You should follow your esthetician’s directions for post-treatment care and be sure to apply SPF to protect the skin.
