This treatment is perfect for anyone looking to minimize pore size, as well as fine lines & wrinkles but it is also great in reducing the appearance of acne scars and evening your overall skin tone and texture. Microneedling is recommended for all skin types and has minimal downtime.
Microneedling At A Glance
Our microneedling procedure at Allura uses an instrument called the EVO pen. This pen uses micro (or tiny) surgical-grade needles to prick the surface of the skin as it is guided on the surface of the face, neck, and decollete area. The needles create little injuries to the skin to trigger the healing process – therefore stimulating collagen growth and renewing the surface of the skin.
Common side effects of microneedling include redness, and tightness of the skin. These will subside within 24 hours of the treatment.
You may experience mild discomfort during your microneedling treatment, however we apply a topical anesthetic cream prior to your treatment to reduce, if not eliminate discomfort altogether. Following the treatment, your skin may be slightly red but it will decrease over the following 24 hours.
If you are looking to boost your microneedling results, our aestheticians can add topical PRP to your skin immediately post-procedure. Using your body’s own platelet-rich plasma, not only speeds up the recovery process but also boosts collagen production your skin will be working overtime to create a fresh face.
