If you are looking to create change in your skin for healthier, younger skin, microneedling may be the right choice for you. But what is microneedling? This is when a Dr. or Licensed Esthetician uses sterilized needles to create micro channels in the skin. This causes the skin to boost production of collagen for firmer, plumper skin. This is why it is also called Collagen Induction Therapy. Microneedling also helps to reduce acne and other scaring for a smoother skin surface. Microneedling is usually initially done in blocks of 4-6 appointments approximately 4 weeks apart. To maintain results subsequent sessions can be done every 2-3 months depending on your specific skin care needs.
Microneedling is non-invasive, with a short down time and few side effects. Sessions at Lambert Wellness include a light exfoliating peel to help the penetration of products and to prepare the skin for microneedling. A personalized combination of peptides and serums are infused into the skin during service.
When scheduling microneedling please be sure to tell your provider if you are on any blood thinners, or have issues with blood clotting. It is also important to to let your provider know if you are using any retinol based products or other topicals. It may be necessary to adjust use for a few days before and after microneedling. You should also wait at least 4 weeks after botox or fillers before receiving microneedling. You’ll need a wide brimmed hat to wear after as sunscreen should not be used for approximately 24 hours.
Common side effect are redness and possibly minor swelling that resolve within a couple of days from treatment.
