Are you ready to unlock the secret to radiant, youthful-looking skin? Look no further than microneedling, the revolutionary treatment taking the beauty world by storm! At Luminance, we’re thrilled to offer this game-changing procedure to our clients, helping them achieve the complexion of their dreams.

So, what exactly is microneedling, and how can it transform your skin?

Microneedling 101: The Basics

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin therapy with a remarkable ability to rejuvenate the skin for a wide range of concerns. This innovative treatment involves using fine, short needles to create tiny punctures in the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries may seem counterintuitive but are crucial in stimulating the body’s natural healing response.

When the microneedles puncture the skin, they trigger a cascade of events that produce collagen and elastin, two essential proteins that are the building blocks of healthy, youthful-looking skin. Collagen provides the skin with firmness and structure, while elastin is responsible for its ability to snap back into place—the lack of these results in wrinkles and sagging.

Controlled micro-injuries kickstart the skin’s regenerative processes, encouraging it to produce new collagen and elastin. This increased production of these vital proteins helps to plump skin, smooth wrinkles and improve overall skin texture and tone. And there’s a higher absorption of skincare products, enhancing their effectiveness and enabling them to penetrate deeper into the skin.

The microneedling devices we use feature needles that range from 0.5 to 2.5 millimeters long, meaning we can customize the treatment to target your exact concerns and goals. The depth of the needles ultimately used depends on various factors, such as the thickness of your skin, the severity of your skin concerns and the specific areas being treated. For example, deeper needles may target more stubborn wrinkles or acne scars, while shorter needles may be used for more delicate areas, such as around the eyes or lips.

The Microneedling Process: What to Expect

Your comfortable spa treatment begins with us cleansing your skin and applying a topical numbing cream. Once your skin is adequately prepared, we’ll use a specialized microneedling device to create tiny punctures in the treatment area.
The entire process typically takes between 30-60 minutes. Following the procedure, you may experience mild redness and sensitivity, which usually subside within a few hours to a day.

After your microneedling session, our team will provide detailed aftercare instructions to help you maximize your results and minimize any potential discomfort. This may include avoiding direct sunlight, using gentle skincare products and keeping your skin well-hydrated.

Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling offers a wide array of advantages for your skin, making it a versatile and highly effective treatment option.

  1. Reduced fine lines and wrinkles: Stimulating collagen production helps smooth out those pesky lines and wrinkles for a younger complexion.
  2. Minimized pore size and improved skin texture: Microneedling can help refine your skin’s texture, reducing enlarged pores and leaving you with a more even complexion.
  3. Faded scars: If you’re struggling with scarring, including acne scars, microneedling helps break down scar tissue and promotes the growth of fresh skin cells.
  4. Diminished the appearance of stretch marks: Microneedling can reduce stretch marks, helping to improve skin elasticity and texture in the affected areas.
  5. Evened out skin tone and reduced hyperpigmentation: By promoting cell turnover and collagen production, microneedling helps fade dark spots for a brighter, more radiant, even complexion.
  6. Boosted collagen production for firmer, more youthful-looking skin: Stimulating collagen production is essential for maintaining firm, plump, young-looking skin.

Frequently Asked Questions About Microneedling

Is microneedling painful?

While microneedling does involve the use of needles, most clients experience only minor discomfort during the procedure. At Luminance, we apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area before beginning the microneedling process to ensure your comfort throughout the session which can feel similar to a light sandpaper rubbing against your skin.

How many microneedling sessions will I need?

The number of microneedling sessions required to achieve desired results depends on the severity of your skin concerns, your response to the treatment and your overall goals. Most clients see noticeable improvements after 3 to 6 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.

What’s the downtime after a microneedling treatment?

One of the significant advantages of microneedling is that it involves minimal downtime. After your session, you may experience some redness, swelling, and mild sensitivity in the treated area, similar to a sunburn. These side effects typically subside within 24 to 48 hours. Most clients can return to typical daily activities immediately after the treatment. Always avoid direct sunlight and wear broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin.

Can microneedling be combined with other treatments?

Yes, microneedling is often used in combination with other skincare treatments to enhance your results and address multiple concerns simultaneously. We also offer customized skincare regimens to complement your microneedling therapies and help you maintain your results at home.
