Our self-esteem can suffer when we feel dissatisfied with our skin’s appearance. Acne, loose skin, wrinkles, and stretch marks are some of the changes that cause people to lose confidence in themselves and their skin. Perhaps you’re experiencing this, too. While you have unconditional beauty regardless of your perceived imperfections, we also understand you may yearn for change that gives you a new lease of life. Microneedling may be exactly what you need to rejuvenate, repair, and refresh your skin. At Impressions, we’re here to make sure you love your reflection.

What is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin treatment designed to enhance skin quality. We create tiny microchannels in the skin using thin needles to kickstart the natural healing process and foster collagen and elastin production. A simple and safe procedure, microneedling will help you develop a new admiration for your features.

Preparing for Your Microneedling Treatment
During Your Microneedling Treatment
The day of your much-awaited skin renewal is one that we’re honored to take you through.
Let any fears around needles subside as we begin the procedure by applying a numbing cream to the treatment area. You might feel a light scratching sensation, but we’ll ensure you’re comfortable and pain-free.
Impressions Face + Body uses top-quality instruments proven to produce remarkable results. Using a pen-like tool with thin needles on the end, your specialist will gently roll it across your skin, making tiny holes on the surface. These holes stimulate the skin’s healing process and the production of collagen and elastin, the proteins that keep your skin healthy and strong.
Microneedling Treatment Aftercare & Recovery
Shortly after your treatment concludes, you’ll be able to head home. Microneedling is advantageous over other skin procedures because minimal damage and downtime are involved. We anticipate you’ll be able to resume your daily routines in no time.
While most of the recovery happens beneath the surface, some tender loving care for your skin can enhance healing. We’ll discuss important features of aftercare, including managing skin irritation or discomfort, maintaining good hygiene, taking a short break from any exercise that makes you sweat, temporarily avoiding makeup, certain face washes and medications, staying hydrated, and increasing sun safety awareness. Taking these steps will help protect your precious skin barrier as it heals.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
Combining the positive effects of microneedling and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microsurfacing is an exclusive technique performed under the meticulous expertise of Impressions Face + Body. We’ll draw a small amount of blood, separate it into layers, and reintroduce the plasma layer into your skin during your microneedling treatment.
An excellent option for all skin conditions and tones of the Fitzpatrick scale, you’ll love the enhanced benefits of microsurfacing.
