What is Microneedling and How Does it Work?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves puncturing the skin with tiny needles to increase collagen production.
While it is mainly used on the face, this procedure can be done all over the body to treat a variety of conditions.
The sharp, paper-thin needles are inserted into the skin, causing a micro-trauma that stimulates the production of healthy new cells. With each puncture, you will feel a tiny pinprick. Your body will naturally rush to the area to heal, producing collagen for a fuller, more youthful complexion.
The acupuncturists at Calm San Diego provide a treatment that is relaxing, rejuvenating, and will help you calm your skin and mind.
Your first session will begin with an overall assessment and analysis of your skin. We will discuss any specific concerns and your goals for treatment. From there, we will perform your microneedling treatment. Afterward, you will experience bright, vibrant, and healthy skin.

What are the results of microneedling?

Whether your goal is younger-looking skin, reduced scarring, and redness, or a blemish-free complexion, microneedling can help support healthy skin from the inside out.

The long-term results of microneedling include:

  • More rejuvenated skin
  • Improved circulation and glow
  • Increased absorption of products
  • Reduced scars and blemishes
  • Improved skin tone and texture 
  • Less fine lines and wrinkles 
While you will experience an initial glow and plumping of the skin, it’s important to understand that microneedling works below the skin’s surface for more lasting results over time. You can expect to see full results four to six weeks after treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

Although you will receive some results after just one treatment, we typically recommend multiple treatments to receive the full effect. A typical treatment course consists of four sessions spaced about a month apart, giving the skin time to heal between sessions.
Our acupuncturists will assess your skin during your initial visit and create a custom care plan for your specific needs.

What are the side effects?

Unlike traditional invasive cosmetic treatments, microneedling has few side effects. You will likely experience some redness and itching for the first 24 hours after treatment. From there, you may experience bruising that disappears within a few days.

What is Cosmetic Acupuncture & How Does it Work

Cosmetic acupuncture gives you the same results as traditional acupuncture, with additional benefits specific to your skin needs. It’s often referred to as natural botox because of its soothing, tightening, and lifting results!
Cosmetic acupuncture combines whole-body rebalancing with targeted needle stimulation. Treatments can target excess fluid, puffiness, facial definition, breakouts, tired skin, dullness, and lines by building qi, supporting circulation, and helping balance the body’s systems.
Thin needles are inserted in specific areas to target collagen production through micro-injuries to the skin.
Your initial treatment will begin with an assessment and analysis of your skin. We’ll discuss any specific concerns and establish your goals for treatment. From there, we will perform a combination of body and facial acupuncture to balance the skin from the inside. Afterward, you will experience calm, sculpted, and glowing skin.

What are the results of cosmetic acupuncture?

Cosmetic acupuncture can help with a variety of skin conditions. The results include:

  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Soothed acne flair-ups
  • Improved discoloration
  • Healed scarring
  • Calmed redness
  • Lifting of sagging skin
Cosmetic acupuncture works from the inside out to get to the root of your skin concerns and help you heal from the inside out. This natural Botox alternative will result in bright, vibrant, healthy skin.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments needed will depend on your skin health, concerns, and goals. A typical treatment course includes 1-2 treatments each week, for 6-12 weeks to address internal imbalances contributing to your skin concerns.

What are the side effects?

Cosmetic acupuncture is a safe and gentle treatment with few adverse effects. For some, you may notice a small amount of bruising. This is normal and typically disappears within a few days.
