how does micro-needling work? Let's break it down.

During a micro-needling session, Dr. Keller utilizes a specialized device with multiple tiny needles. These needles are carefully placed on the skin’s surface, creating micro-injuries. Now, don’t let the term “injuries” scare you – these are incredibly small and controlled, designed to trigger your body’s natural healing response.

As the needles puncture the skin, they create tiny channels, or “micro-pin holes.” These micro-injuries prompt your body to kickstart the production of collagen and elastin, two essential proteins responsible for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity. Think of it as a gentle nudge to your skin, encouraging it to renew and repair itself.

But why the term “vampire facelift”? Well, it’s all about the process. As the micro-needles create those tiny channels, they also cause minimal bleeding. This is where the comparison to vampires comes in – but fear not, there’s nothing spooky about it! The slight bleeding is a natural part of the process and helps to further stimulate collagen production.

As your skin heals from these micro-injuries, you’ll notice a gradual improvement in its texture, tone, and overall appearance. The surrounding skin tightens as the micro-channels close, resulting in a firmer, more youthful complexion. Additionally, the increased collagen production helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.

Following your micro-needling treatment, it’s normal for your skin to appear slightly red, similar to a mild sunburn. This temporary side effect typically subsides within a week, and you can resume your regular skincare routine in just a few days. In fact, you can even apply powder makeup as early as the third day post-treatment, allowing you to get back to your daily activities with confidence.

In summary, micro-needling offers a safe, effective solution for achieving smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Under the expert guidance of Dr. Keller, you can experience the transformative benefits of this innovative procedure, all with minimal downtime and discomfort.
