"It won’t work"
FALSE. Studies show that it can produce results similar to ablative laser resurfacing at a lower cost, less pain, less side effects, and a 1-3 day recovery time. It can be used for wrinkles, thin skin, UV damage, hyperpigmentation, scarring, and loose skin. All forms of skin rejuvenation consist of microinjuries through chemicals, as in peels; heat, as in lasers; and now needles. All of these methods cause new beautiful skin to develop.
"It is going to hurt"
FALSE. This may be true at other locations but not at SkinWise Rx! Our medical experts will thoroughly cleanse your skin using microdermabrasion to remove dead skin cells and prepare the epidermis. Next, a layer of anesthetic cream is applied to numb the skin and make the therapy comfortable. After about 20 minutes the patient is ready for treatment.
"I can’t. I am on Retin A"
FALSE. The skin needs to be free of Retin A products for only 12 hrs prior to treatment. Unlike peels you do not have to discontinue your tretinoin or adapalene products for two weeks. You stay off of active skin care products for 3 days after treatment. You can resume your regular skin care after 3 days.
"I can’t have lasers, so I can’t microneedle"
FALSE. Microneedling works with all skin colors from white to black. You will be quite red post-treatment like a severe sunburn. We will apply Epionce Medical Barrier Cream to help the skin heal. Your skin may have a slight sting when the anesthetic wears off and you can use cold compresses and take Acetaminophen/Tylenol for it. We apply sunscreen at the office. No sun exposure or active skin care products (acids or items that sting or burn) for the next 3 days.
"I won’t have immediate results"
FALSE... & TRUE. Usually by day three you start to see some skin changes but know this is a cumulative treatment. It is recommended to undergo at least four sessions, once every four weeks, for best visible results. Do not expect immediate results; smooth flawless skin is a slow and gradual evolution.
Who should use microneedling?
This treatment is ideal if you have serious worries about aging, scarring or discoloration, as there really is a noticeable improvement. We do not recommend microneedling if you have minor skin concerns that could be addressed through less invasive methods like using carefully selected skin care products.
