HOW IT WORKS
Our Fullerton microneedling is the latest trend in anti-aging treatments. Although only recently popularized in America, it has been in use in Europe for decades. Advancement to automated needling is what is new about this treatment.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Before a microneedling procedure, the skin is cleaned and a topical anesthetic is applied to ensure a more comfortable treatment. Then a hand-held, pen-like tool with a sterile, disposable needle tip containing tiny, stainless steel needles is used to puncture the skin and create pinpoint wounds. The microneedling pen is moved quickly across the skin in a procedure that typically lasts only 10 to 15 minutes. This stimulates the body to send collagen and elastin to the micro-injuries to repair them.
Tiny columns of trauma in the dermis (the deeper layer of skin) force the body to make collagen to fill and heal them. The new collagen makes the skin tighter and smoother, creating a more youthful appearance. Collagen enhancing serum is applied after the procedure to enhance treatment results.
Microneedling in Newport Beach can be performed with different lengths of needles that pierce the skin. Shorter needle penetration is used to smooth superficial skin and enhance product absorption. Longer needle penetration produces deeper collagen response for treating conditions such as acne scarring.
Most people experience mild redness and slight swelling after treatment, similar to a mild sunburn, and possibly pinpoint bleeding or bruising. These effects should subside within 24 to 48 hours. You may notice a brighter, more radiant appearance of the skin within a few days or weeks. Maximum results will appear several months after treatment.
