Microneedling procedures allow for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin, which trigger new collagen synthesis. The result is smoother, younger-looking skin.

Microneedling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of the sterile needle head. The procedure is normally completed within 30-90 minutes, depending on the required procedure and anatomical site.

After the procedure, the skin will be red and flushed in appearance, similar to a moderate sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on certain areas. This will diminish significantly within a few hours following the procedure. Within the next 24-48 hours, the skin will have returned to normal. There may be pinpoint bruising in areas that were treated more aggressively that will resolve in the next 24-72 hours. After three days, there is rarely any evidence that the procedure has taken place.

Microneedling is contraindicated for patients with: keloid scars, scleroderma, collagen vascular diseases or cardiac abnormalities, a hemorrhagic disorder or hemostatic dysfunction, active bacterial or fungal infection, or active cold sores, or any history of cold sores on the cheeks or nose.

Microneedling has not been evaluated in the following patient populations, and as such, precautions should be taken when determining whether the microneedling procedure is adequate for the patient: scars and stretch marks less than one year old; women who are pregnant or nursing; keloid scars; patients with history of eczema, psoriasis and other chronic conditions; patients with history of actinic (solar) keratosis; patients with history of herpes simplex infections; diabetics or patients with wound- healing deficiencies; patients on immunosuppressive therapy; and skin with presence of raised moles or warts on targeted area.

I have been instructed in and understand the post-treatment instructions. I have been given sufficient information to enable me to understand the use of these products. I have also received information regarding contraindications to the administration of products and potential side effects.

Post-treatment I agree to comply with the following instructions:

Avoid sun exposure and saunas and working out for 24 hours.

Avoid manipulation of the treated area and make up, as instructed by the practitioner. Some redness, swelling, hematomas and bruising may occur following treatment. Resolution is typically spontaneous within a few days. Persistence of any inflammatory reaction for more than one week or the development of any other side effects must be reported to the practitioner as soon as possible. I understand some clients may experience a hypersensitive reaction to Hibiclens®, alcohol, or acetone, or to other prep or cleaning solutions.
