As we mature, that natural supply of collagen starts to dwindle. Our skin loses its suppleness, moisture and lovely glow, and starts to look dull and depleted. Microneedling is one of the best ways to reverse this loss of collagen. It not only helps to reduce wrinkles, but also minimizes scarring, stretch marks and hyperpigmentation. During the procedure, tiny needles perforate the pores, causing the body to produce a wound-healing response that jumpstarts collagen production. Microneedling is an excellent treatment for all skin types. Dr. Lee can explain more about microneelding during your private Beverly Hills consultation.
“Dr. Lee is great! She is very professional and thorough. She does fantastic work. Dr. Lee answered all of my questions and made sure I was happy. I would recommend my family to her.”
The downtime for your microneedling treatment will depend on the depth of the needles, which can be customized to your cosmetic goals, and on the severity of your complexion concerns. Most clients will experience some minor redness and tenderness that is akin to a sunburn.
Your skin will appear healthier immediately, but dermal collagen remodeling is something that happens gradually, so your skin’s total damage will slowly diminish over time.
Dr. Lee suggests at least 4 microneedling sessions spaced around 6 weeks apart for best results. Changes will be most evident at about 3 months after your initial appointment.
