Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling generates new collagen in the skin which improves skin texture, pore size, scarring, firmness, fine lines and wrinkles.
By introducing a micro-injury to the skin, microneedling encourages the skin to produce collagen and elastin through the stimulation of the skin’s natural healing response. The skin appears plump and radiant in the days and weeks after microneedling. Over time, and with maintenance microneedling treatments, the skin is encouraged to continue to naturally produce collagen and the skin is improved through biological processes.

FAQs for Treatment
Is numbing cream used during treatment?
We do not use numbing cream during our microneedling treatments for two reasons:
1. to reduce/minimize toxins in the body.
2. because numbing cream can constrict the blood vessels in the skin which limits the skin from turning red. This redness is important feedback from the skin. Our skin therapists rely on this feedback to ensure your treatment is as effective and customized as possible. Without feedback from the skin, microneedling procedures tend to be more aggressive than necessary, leading to increased risk and longer healing time.
How many sessions do I need?
This is determined by your skin therapist and depends on the concerns you are trying to address. For example, a client concerned with acne scarring will require more treatments than a client focused on preventative aging. Generally, a series of 3-5 treatments spread out one month apart is recommended. 2-3 yearly maintenance treatments are also recommended.
How often should I get a Microneedling treatment?
The results of microneedling are best achieved if appointments are spread out 1 month apart. Generally, a series of 3-5 treatments is recommended, with 2-3 yearly maintenance treatments. Your skin therapist will determine the best course of action, as all skin is unique.
Is it painful?
Although it is not as relaxing as Biologique Recherche Facial, the majority of clients find it quite tolerable. At Glow we like to say that if you didn’t know it was tiny needles, you would think it’s just light scratching across the face.
What is downtime and aftercare like?
You will likely be red after your microneedling appointment. This normally looks and feels like a sunburn. Some people may experience some itchiness, which is your body's histamine response as it tries to heal itself. Redness will dissipate for the majority of clients within a few hours.
It’s important to maintain moisture levels in the skin and protect yourself from sun exposure for optimal healing. Avoid all active ingredients for a minimum of 5 days. This includes, P50, vitamin A (retinoids), vitamin C, ect. If going outside, be sure to wear a broad spectrum SPF of 30+ and try to stay out of direct sunlight.
Aftercare instructions will be provided after your appointment.
Can I wear makeup after microneedling?
Mineral makeup can be worn, but we recommend avoiding makeup for at least 24 hours after treatment.
