How does this skin rejuvenation treatment work?

Microchanneling, also known as collagen induction therapy, uses a professional derma roller of several fine-gauge needles to safely puncture the dermis or the second layer of the facial skin. This technique encourages the body to produce elastin and collagen to begin the healing process naturally. Both of the nutrients are imperative for the health and appearance of the skin. Microchanneling is most commonly used to smooth the skin, even out hyperpigmentation issues, and shrink pores, and be easily combined with other aesthetic treatments or serums to make the end results more dramatic. Our skin experts at Med Spa at Seena One (Corrective Skin Care)will personalize each microneedling treatment to meet your skin care requirements.

Microchanneling treatments help rebuild facial skin to reveal a firmer, smooth complexion while stimulating the body's natural collagen production. Healing from microneedling generally takes about 24 hours. However, it varies by patient depending on the treatment's extent and could take up to 2 – 3 days.

With the body's healing process creating new, healthy collagen, the most dramatic results being visible in about 4 – 6 weeks.

How long does redness after microneedling last?

Swelling and redness are normal after microneedling treatments. It will most likely persist for at least 24 – 48 hours. Even with proper aftercare, there isn't much you can do to get rid of the redness immediately after the procedure, so be patient. Women should avoid covering up the redness with makeup, which can clog pores on newly exposed skin and even cause acne. As the skin heals, apply gentle cleansers and unscented moisturizers to the skin to minimize side effects.
