Microneedling Q&A

What is microneedling?

 

Microneedling is a procedure that promotes the growth of collagen fibers within your skin to combat signs of aging. Collagen is a structural protein that keeps your skin firm, and it dwindles as you age.

 

The team at Tourmaline Skin Care & Laser uses the InnoPen for microneedling, which is one of the world’s most advanced and automated microneedling treatments. It uses a wand-like device to create controlled micro-injuries on your skin’s surface with even spacing for consistent results. 

 

Over time, your skin naturally heals these micro-injuries by facilitating the healing process that normally happens for skin damage. Collagen and elastin growth are both parts of this healing process. Microneedling can lead to clearer skin on the surface with stronger tissues below. 

 

How does microneedling improve the way my skin looks?

 

In just 75 minutes, a microneedling treatment with InnoPen promotes healing that visibly reduces numerous age-related features and skin concerns. You might be interested in microneedling if you want to get rid of:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines

  • Hyperpigmentation and spots

  • Large pores

  • Sun damage

  • Scars

  • Stretch marks

Your microneedling treatment at Tourmaline Skin Care & Laser also involves a deep cleanse, extractions (if needed), a Hyla Active™ mask, and finishing product to make your skin glow. Your skin is more receptive to serums and nutrients immediately after microneedling. 

 

How long does it take to recover from microneedling?

 

Immediately after microneedling at Tourmaline Skin Care & Laser, your skin is flushed and red. This usually doesn’t last longer than 48 hours, at which point you might experience some peeling. While it only takes a few days to recover from microneedling, it can take up to two months* to see the results as your skin heals. 

 

You can soothe your skin after microneedling and prevent additional irritation by using sunscreen every day, using antibiotic cream according to the Tourmaline Skin Care & Laser team’s instructions, avoiding exfoliants, and using gentle cleansers and moisturizers. 

 

Microneedling with InnoPen can give your skin a boost in firmness and a healthy new glow. Learn more about the process by booking a consultation over the phone or online at Tourmaline Skin Care & Laser today.
