WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE PROCEDURE?
During the treatment, a specially designed cosmetic stylus is used to direct a fleet of a dozen sterile needles as they brush against the pores, creating micro-injuries that stimulate the body to heal itself. Prior to the procedure, a soothing gel is used to minimize abrasion and lubricate the stylus. As the pen glides across the skin, patients may experience a sandpaper-like sensation, but this is no more irritating than a typical over-the-counter apricot scrub, for instance. Microneedling in Centennial is often enhanced through the use of skin-renewal serums such as hyaluronic acid, kojic acid and growth factor gels. The entire procedure lasts approximately 30 minutes, and results can continue to impress for up to one year.
RISKS OF MICRONEEDLING
The microneedling procedure is a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment that offers long-lasting results within days. Since no chemicals are used to treat the skin, chances of allergies, infections, injuries and skin damage are negligible.
But, considering that the microneedling procedure is a cosmetic treatment, patients need to be aware that they may experience minor swelling, bleeding and bruising post-treatment. These symptoms will reduce and disappear within a few days after the procedure.
The microneedling procedure in itself isn’t very painful. But, depending on your pain threshold, you may experience minor pain. This can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication.
Your skin may feel raw and itchy for a few hours after the treatment. This occurs as a result of the swelling in the open pores of the skin. The pores close within 90 minutes of the treatment, significantly reducing the swelling and itchiness on the face. Your skin should go back to normal within 12 to 48 hours after the procedure.
You will be provided with a comprehensive skin care regimen at our Centennial clinic, which you need to follow post-treatment. Carefully following this skincare plan will help your skin heal faster and will allow you to regain your beautiful and youthful appearance.
ELIGIBLE CANDIDATES FOR MICRONEEDLING
The microneedling treatment is perfect for anyone who wishes to improve the youthfulness and vitality of the face. Eligible candidates are:
PATIENTS WITH CLOGGED PORES
PATIENTS WITH ACNE SCARS, BLEMISHES, AND MARKS
PATIENTS WITH HOLLOWNESS IN THE FACE
PATIENTS WHO DON’T SUFFER FROM SKIN INFECTIONS OR DERMAL CONDITIONS
PATIENTS WISHING TO IMPROVE THE ELASTICITY OF THE SKIN
PERFECT FOR ALL SKIN TYPES
Most dermal treatments need to be customized to suit different skin types to prevent chances of pigmentation and marks. However, with the microneedling procedure, there is nothing to worry about.
The microneedling procedure follows the principles of acupuncture and is designed to suit every single skin type, including dark skin. This treatment does not use any chemical peels or topical ointments to provide the desired result. Instead, a device with tiny needles (or rollers in non-electronic devices) is used to make tiny punctures on the skin, promoting the skin to rejuvenate and heal itself through the production of excess elastin and collagen.
When fresh elastin and collagen are produced by the skin, the sun damage, pigmentation, acne scars, and marks are naturally healed and the face is filled in. If you’d like more information about the procedure, feel free to visit our Centennial clinic.
RECOVERY FROM MICRONEEDLING
Revive360 Med Spa microneedling clients may experience some redness as a result of the procedure, comparable to a sunburn. This usually heals quite rapidly within the first week and is no cause for alarm. It’s important to avoid the sun after your treatment, and to wear sunblock.
Results can begin to show within 7-10 days in the form of a fresh lovely glow, and the skin tone may continue to improve for 6 months, as more and more healthy skin cells are produced.
Microneedling can be repeated more than once, typically it is suggested that sessions are at least 4-8 weeks apart, however many patients find that even just one treatment is enough to dramatically improve the look and feel of the skin.

COST OF MICRONEEDLING
Considering that the microneedling procedure is a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment which does not use chemicals and dermal fillers, the entire procedure is extremely inexpensive compared to other facial rejuvenation treatments.
A single microneedling session lasts about 30 minutes and normally, a person requires 6 to 8 sessions to treat the entire face. This could cost anywhere between $100 and $700 for a single session, based on the following factors:
AREAS OF THE FACE TO BE TREATED
EXTENSIVENESS OF THE TREATMENT
NUMBER OF SITTINGS REQUIRED
TYPE OF DEVICE USED – ELECTRONIC OR NON-ELECTRONIC
