What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a fantastic way to rejuvenate your skin and make you GLOW. At Livio, we use a device called the SkinPen.  This pen contains very fine needles that are used to create microscopic punctures in your skin, which creates something called a controlled skin injury. This controlled skin injury beautifully and uniformly “re-heals” concerns like acne scarring, pore size, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, and your skin’s texture and firmness. Immediately after the procedure, your body begins its natural healing process and collagen production is triggered in the treated areas.

What areas do we treat?

Microneedling is most commonly used to treat unevenness and texture on the face but this treatment can be used to help heal skin and scars anywhere on the body. 

What to expect?

There is very minimal downtime with microneedling. You’ll want to avoid makeup immediately after treatment and the following day. After about 24-48 hours of slight redness, your skin will start to return to normal and be better than ever! It sounds a bit scary, but most clients report no discomfort during this procedure at all.  We use a topical numbing cream prior to your treatment, so you won’t feel the needles—only small vibrations! 

When will I see results?

Most clients don’t see results with only one treatment, but 3 or 4 are usually what patients need in order to see the full benefits! The number of sessions you’ll need all varies based on the condition of your skin.
