Microneedling

Firmer, smoother, healthier skin

Microneedling leaves your skin looking youthful, firm, and smooth. It is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that is usually painless when numbing cream is used. Using precise needles, our FDA approved device stimulates skin turnover and collagen production, revealing glowing and healthier looking skin.

Microneedling

What to expect

Your Aesthetician will apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area, to ensure you are as comfortable as possible, during the treatment. Once the numbing cream takes its effect, the treatment will begin. Your appointment will last between one and two hours, depending on how many areas you would like to be treated. 

During your Microneedling treatment, very small, fine needles will be used to puncture the surface of the skin, in a controlled area. These needles create micro-channels and the body responds to this treatment by increasing collagen production in the targeted area. Here at Ocean Wood Aesthetics, we use the Exceed Pen for our Microneedling treatments, which is the world’s only double FDA approved Microneedling device.

After the treatment, some temporary side effects may occur. The procedure causes short-term swelling, redness and sometimes flaking skin. This will only last for a few days and most clients can return to wearing makeup within 24 hours of the treatment taking place.

Your results will last around three to five months and many clients will have a follow up appointment twice a year to maintain their results. To preserve your results and take care of your skin, we recommend following a skincare routine, which our team can help with if you need it.
