Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure for your skin. Your
Browns & Co skincare specialist uses thin needles to make tiny holes in the top layer of your skin. The damage helps stimulate your skin’s healing process, so it produces more collagen and elastin. These proteins keep your skin firm and smooth. Microneedling is one of our most popular add ons. You can also get microneedling on your legs, back, neck or other areas where you notice damaged or aging skin. Your specislist may recommend multiple sessions to achieve the desired results
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves using fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. These controlled micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process, promoting collagen and elastin production, and improving the overall texture and appearance of the skin.
Microneedling offers several benefits for the skin, including reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving skin tone and texture, minimising pore size, fading acne scars and other types of scars, and promoting overall skin rejuvenation. It can be performed on various parts of the body and is suitable for all skin types.
During the procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied to minimise discomfort. Most individuals experience mild to moderate discomfort during the treatment, which is often described as a tingling or pricking sensation. The depth of the needles can be adjusted based on the individual’s comfort level.
The duration of a Microneedling treatment can vary depending on the area being treated and the specific goals of the individual. On average, a session typically takes around 30 to 60 minutes. The treatment may be shorter or longer depending on the size of the treatment area and the specific technique used.
After the procedure, the skin may appear slightly red and feel sensitive, similar to a mild sunburn. This is a normal and temporary side effect that usually subsides within a day or two. Some individuals may experience mild swelling or minor bruising, which can also resolve within a few days. It’s important to follow any specific aftercare instructions provided by your Browns & Co skincare professional to promote healing and protect the skin.
The number of treatments needed to achieve desired results can vary depending on individual concerns and goals. While some individuals may notice improvements after a single treatment, a series of treatments is often recommended for more significant and long-lasting results. Typically, a series of 3 to 6 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart is recommended. Your Browns & Co skincare specialist can provide a personalised treatment plan based on your specific needs.
Yes, Microneedling can be combined with other treatments to enhance the results. It is often performed in conjunction with procedures such as PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) therapy or the application of serums and growth factors to further stimulate collagen production and improve overall skin rejuvenation. Your skincare professional can recommend the best combination of treatments for your unique needs.
Microneedling is generally safe and effective for all skin types. However, it’s important to consult with your Browns & Co specialist to determine if it is suitable for your specific skin concerns and to receive personalised advice and treatment recommendations. They will assess your skin, discuss your goals, and provide the best course of action for achieving the desired results.
