Our Bay Area microneedling treatment is among the most trusted and popular treatments at Total Glow, as it delivers wonderful anti-aging results, stimulating the regrowth of collagen, and smoothing away blemishes and facial scarring. Microneedling is also ideal for treating sun damage, hyperpigmentation and dull skin texture. Call us today and schedule a consultation with one of our caring aestheticians to find out if microneedling can help renew a tired complexion and boost your self-image.

What is Microneedling?

Using a series of ultra-fine needles, microneedling creates thousands of perforations in the skin that trigger the body’s natural healing response. When the skin undergoes such micro injuries, it produces collagen, a naturally-occurring protein responsible for the skin’s suppleness, hydration and firmness during youth. As we age, our collagen supply dwindles, making the skin look dull, depleted and hollow. With microneedling, a more radiant, vibrant complexion can be yours.

Who is a Good Candidate For the Procedure?

If you are a healthy adult who is free from infections, microneedling may be an excellent way to improve your skin’s condition. Men and women with facial scarring either from acne or from injury will benefit strongly from microneedling in Palo Alto. The best way to determine your candidacy for sure is to schedule a private consultation with one of our skilled and compassionate aestheticians in Palo Alto who will perform a customized skin analysis in order to determine your best options for success.

What Will Recovery Entail?

For a few days following your session, your skin may appear red and sandpaper-like, but as it heals, a smoother, more refined skin texture will gradually emerge and you will notice a visible improvement in wrinkles and fine lines. Following your procedure, it’s important to use sunblock of 30 SPF or higher or protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays. You should abstain from exercise for about 24 hours after microneedling.

What Are the Fees For Microneedling in Palo Alto?

Microneedling costs will depend on the areas treated, so our team will be able to create a customized quote for you once you undergo your private consultation at Total Glow. We will make sure you leave our offices with a clear expectation for all fees and financing options.

FAQs about microneedling

How does it work?

Microneedling uses tiny needles set within a pen-shaped device. The technology aims to create a precise injury to the skin’s surface, prompting the body to respond by forming new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers. The skin plumps and thickens in response to this stimulus, and the channels made from the microneedles allow topical serums to be absorbed more effectively into the top layer of skin.

What can I expect during the treatment?

Microneedling is an in-office treatment that does not require general anesthesia. First, the skin is cleansed and treated with a topical numbing cream to minimize any discomfort. The procedure takes 20-30 minutes, depending on the area treated. Some pressure sensations may be felt, however they will not be painful.

What are the results?

The skin will be red for 24-48 hours, similar to a sunburn. However, recovery depends on the length of the needle used. The skin may also feel flushed, tight, and itchy for the first 24 hours. It can take between 6-8 weeks before visible signs of skin regeneration are seen, and the regeneration will continue to evolve over time. Although a single treatment can provide a noticeable result, a series of 2-3 treatments spaced by 6-8 weeks is recommended for optimal results.

Is it safe?

Microneedling is completely safe. There is no risk of scarring or permanent color changes to your skin. If you wish to learn more, contact our office today and schedule a consultation for one of the best treatments of microneedling Bay Area has to offer.
