Skin Rejuvenation with Microneedling Near Helena, MT

Heal. Restore.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves using a device called a MicroPen® EVO or a similar tool with tiny, sterile needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. This process stimulates the skin’s natural healing response, improving the appearance of dull, “tired-looking” skin and reducing the appearance of scars, uneven texture, and enlarged pores.

Microneedling effectively treats age spots, blackheads, hyperpigmentation (such as melasma), acne spots and scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. The micro-injuries prompt the production of collagen and elastin, essential proteins that contribute to skin firmness, elasticity, and a more youthful appearance.

Microneedling is considered an affordable option compared to more invasive procedures and can provide noticeable results without extensive downtime or discomfort.

What should I expect during my microneedling appointment?

Consultation: The process typically begins with a consultation to assess your skin, discuss your concerns, and explain the microneedling procedure.

Preparing the skin: Before the microneedling procedure begins, the aesthetician will cleanse your skin to remove any makeup, dirt, or oils. They may also apply a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort during the procedure.

Microneedling process: Once your skin is prepped, the aesthetician will use a handheld device, such as the MicroPen® EVO or a similar tool, which contains a sterile cartridge with fine needles. The device will be gently moved over the targeted areas of your skin, creating controlled micro-injuries. The depth of needle penetration can be adjusted based on your concerns and skin condition.

Sensation and comfort: You may experience a mild sensation during the procedure, which can feel like a slight pricking or tingling on the skin. The numbing cream helps to minimize discomfort, but individual sensitivity levels can vary.

Application of serums or solutions: A serum or other specialized solution will be applied to the skin immediately after the microneedling treatment.

What should I anticipate after my microneedling treatment?

Immediately after the treatment, your skin may appear slightly red, similar to a mild sunburn. This redness typically subsides within a day or two. Depending on the depth of the treatment, you may also experience some mild flaking or peeling in the days following the session.
