Reliftalia Bioneedling FAQ
What is microneedling?
Microneedling – or bioneedling – is the placement of very fine needles onto the skin creating tiny punctures through which Vitamin C is inserted. This stimulates the collagen in your skin and rejuvenates it.
What are the results of microneedling?
Rejuvenated skin looks plumper, pinker and smoother. Imagine luminescent, radiant, younger-looking skin! The results are instant, and you will look luminous for a couple of weeks. There is research to indicate that skin treated once a month for 4 months retained increased collagen and elastin 6 months after completing treatments. So there are short term and long term benefits!
Who is suitable for microneedling?
Microneedling is a popular treatment with men and women alike, and may be more attractive to those who feel their skin is not at its best. This could be because of wrinkles, scars or blemishes. Microneedling can even reduce the appearance of acne scars. Some clients will not be suitable for microneedling due to conditions including diabetes and pregnancy, so if you have any medical issues please bring them to our attention.
Does microneedling hurt?
Don’t worry, microneedling barely hurts as a numbing cream is applied to sensitive areas before the treatment starts. The super-fine needles are more like pin pricks and while some clients may experience bleeding, the needles are only entered skin deep. This is a non-invasive procedure and does not damage the skin. This is not the same as dermarolling, which is more harmful to the skin. Some clients may feel inflammation but this is pacified by applying a variety of soothing products to cool down the skin once the treatment is finished.
Is there a recovery period?
Generally speaking there are no side effects but dryness, redness and swelling may be noticeable for up to 7 days following your treatment. There is very little chance of infection as the pores that were opened close within 30 minutes. Great news – using our special aftercare serum you can apply makeup straightaway! We will also give you this product to take away so you can continue using makeup.
How long do the effects of microneedling last?
The results are instant, and you will look luminous for a couple of weeks. There is research to indicate that skin treated once a month for 4 months retained increased collagen and elastin 6 months after completing treatments. So there are short term and long term benefits!
