Microneedling, nicknamed “collagen induction therapy,” is a way to harness the power of your skin cells and their ability to regenerate healthy new tissues. This regenerative anti-aging service can target and minimize the appearance of:

· Age spots

· Sun damage

· Enlarged pores

· Uneven skin tone

· Hyperpigmentation

· Fine lines and wrinkles

· Acne, injury, or surgical scars

Although microneedling is most commonly used to target blemishes in your face, neck, and décolleté, you can get microneedling on other areas of your body, too. For instance, you can request microneedling on your midsection to smooth out stubborn stretch marks.

What happens during microneedling?

Microneedling at West Coast MedSpa involves cleansing your skin and applying premium products, based on your skin needs and concerns. Your aesthetic practitioner then gently glides the microneedling tip over your targeted area in a specific pattern to promote blood flow and stimulate healing.

With each swipe of the microneedling device, hundreds of tiny micro-wounds are created. Not only does blood come rushing to the area to heal these wounds, but new collagen also starts building up from deep within, so your skin tightens and firms over time.

When will I have results with microneedling?

Once any initial redness, irritation, or inflammation subside after a few days, you start noticing more vibrant, firmer skin. Your skin continues to improve week after week for several months.

After you achieve your optimal results after about two to four monthly microneedling sessions at West Coast MedSpa, continue coming in once or twice a year for maintenance microneedling treatments. It is imperative to pair your sessions with high quality products to enhance the process!
