Microneedling is a versatile treatment that can address a wide range of skin concerns. Whether you're looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimize the appearance of scars, or improve skin texture and tone, microneedling can help. By stimulating the body's natural repair cycle and increasing collagen growth, this treatment can help to improve the overall health and appearance of your skin. At AFYA, we use state-of-the-art technology and techniques to ensure that our microneedling treatments are safe, effective, and tailored to your individual needs. Our team of experienced professionals will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your unique concerns and helps you achieve the best possible results. With microneedling, you can enjoy a brighter, tighter, smoother, and fresher appearance, with little to no downtime.
We recommend doing a series of 3 to 4 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart for most indications. For stretch marks we recommend doing 6 to 8 treatments spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart. Before your MicroPen treatment we recommend avoiding exfoliation products and Retin A for 5 days. Immediately post treatment you will wait 12 hours before cleansing your skin. You will want to avoid working out for 24 hours and unprotected sun exposure for 14 days.
Prior to your treatment, we will cleanse and exfoliate your skin. Topical Numbing cream will be applied for 30 minutes. When the skin is comfortably numb, we will use the Microneedling in gentle strokes over the skin using Hyaluronic Acid & B5 Serum to infuse the skin with hydration and begin the collagen building process in the skin.* Immediately post treatment we will apply a Serum and the healing Ointment to encourage rapid skin regeneration and optimal results. You will appear pink to red for 12 hours after your treatment. You will start to see a nice glow to your skin within 7 days and results will continue to develop for 2 to 3 months.*
