Can micro-needling reduce stretch marks on the body?
Yes. Micro-needling effectively helps to build the tissue within the stretch marks though the production of collagen. This builds up the indentation and reduces the colour of the stretch marks, in some cases making them disappear completely.
How long are micro-needling treatments and what is the downtime?
Total treatment time is 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area and there is little to no downtime. Slight redness and warmth to the skin may be experienced after your session, and dryness can be experienced a few days post-treatment.
How does micro-needling differ from Fractional RF?
Both treatments address concerns of loose crepey skin, scars, fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars, open pores. However, if you are looking for a more targeted treatment, Fractional RF is best for overall appearance and general redness while micro-needling is best for darker skin tones and pigmentation or sun damage. As always we strongly recommend that you take advantage of our free consultations so that our technicians can help you select the best treatment suited to your wants and needs.
How many micro-needling treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required will depend on your individual requirements and this will be discussed during your initial consultation. Typically, we recommend a treatment course of 3-6 sessions, at monthly intervals.
