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.

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.

Your Microneedling Consultation

Stepping into our clinic for the first time, you’ll be welcomed by our team. Your specialist will seamlessly review your medical history, evaluate your skin, and discuss your goals. You are valuable to us, so you won’t be in and out the door after a rushed discussion. Instead, they will give you the time and attention needed to answer your questions and ensure you feel confident about proceeding with a microneedling treatment.

Once we get to know you as an individual, our team will formulate a unique plan that emphasizes your needs, aspirations, and concerns.

Preparing for Your Microneedling Treatment

Good preparation is essential for receiving the best possible results. Our advice on preparing for a microneedling treatment will be carefully tailored to your individual circumstances, but protecting your skin from the sun and avoiding hair removal and skincare products are some of our general recommendations to patients.

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?

If you have acne scars, enlarged pores, wrinkles, loose skin, sun damage, skin discoloration, stretch marks, or other skin conditions, you’ll likely be an excellent candidate for microneedling. Alongside your valuable voice, our team will use their years of experience to determine whether microneedling is right for you.
What is microsurfacing?

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.

What are the benefits of microneedling?
Microneedling can improve skin quality, increase absorption of skincare products, reduce pore size, stimulate collagen production, and improve skin tone and texture. While these all seem minor, even tiny changes can enhance your life, emphasize your natural beauty, and transform how you feel about yourself.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments you’ll need for optimal results is deeply personal and depends on your skin concerns and goals. We find that the greatest benefits tend to emerge after three to six treatments, each spaced a few weeks apart. However, encouraging results can arise even after a single session. We recognize your individuality, so we will personally recommend your ideal number of treatments to experience benefits lasting up to six months.
Which areas can be treated with microneedling?
We can perform microneedling on the face, neck, arms, hands, decollete, and legs. Our team are experts in treating all areas. Wherever your skin needs support, we can help.
When will I see the results?
Seeing the results of microneedling can involve some patience because it takes time for your skin to heal. Not to worry, though—even though you may not initially visualize changes, your body is hard at work. After four to six weeks, depending on the individual, the inner repairing will reveal itself on the outside. The moment you have been waiting for has arrived, and you can take pride in the brilliant improvements in your skin health.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience minor tenderness, swelling, redness, and flaking skin around the treated area—much like a sunburn. These side effects are temporary and should resolve on their own after a few days. If you’re concerned about your side effects, please contact our clinic; your comfort is paramount to us.
