Today I’m chatting with Sam who specializes in micro needling here at Living Well to answer a few common questions about the procedure.
1. How does the process of micro needling work? The first thing we do for the patient’s comfort is apply topical numbing cream for about 10 minutes. The needles we use are very tiny, so the most a patient will feel is a little bit of pressure.
2. How long is the downtime for a micro needling procedure? There really isn’t any true downtime. The patient leaves with a little bit of pinkness to the skin, possibly a tiny bit of pinpoint bleeding, but the next day they can apply makeup as usual.
3. What sets our micro needling procedure apart from others? During our procedure, we infuse the skin with a human growth factor instead of hyaluronic acid like in most procedures. Hyaluronic acid isn’t necessarily bad for the skin, but you’re not getting the benefits that you would from a human growth factor. Overall, we get better results.
If you have any other questions about micro needling or any other services we offer, please feel free to give us a call or send us an email to schedule a free consultation. We look forward to hearing from you!
