Microneedling

Microneedling Albany and Saratoga NY - Complexions Medical Spa

Micro Needle Therapy

Microneedling, also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), increases the amount of collagen in your skin creating a younger, fresher looking appearance. By causing tiny “micro injuries” to the skin, this creates channels that allow topical products to be absorbed more effectively and stimulates your body’s own collagen production. Microneedling treatments can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, acne scaring, pore size and hyperpigmentation or discoloration.

A series of 3 – 5 treatments is recommended to see maximum results. Includes an at-home skincare kit to use while undergoing treatment.

Microneedling has taken the beauty world by storm and been featured in Cosmopolitan, Bravo and Elle.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Microneedling Hurt?

Prior to the treatment, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area(s) and will sit on your skin for 30 minutes. A little discomfort is normal during the treatment, but most people find it completely tolerable.

How Long Does Microneedling Take?

A treatment takes about 30 minutes to perform on one area. This does not include numbing time, so expect to be in the treatment room for about an hour.

Is There Any Downtime?

There is very little downtime with this treatment. It is normal to experience mild redness in the treated area, similar to sunburn. The redness will subside within a few hours. We recommend that you don’t apply makeup after microneedling, but a mineral makeup can be applied the next day.
