How is microinfusion different from microneedling?
While both of these treatments utilize tiny needles, there are 2 main differences: the depth the needles penetrate into your skin, and the mechanism of action. Microinfusion penetrates to a depth of about .6mm, while microneedling ranges from .1 to 2.5. Typically you want greater depth with microneedling, because it’s the actual needle punctures that create the benefits by triggering your skin’s healing mechanism. Whereas with microinfusion the needles’ purpose is to create channels to deliver nutrients to your skin. Lastly, microneedling is a more intense treatment, and has a longer recovery time.
Is there any downtime?
You may have some mild redness and swelling for a few hours after treatment. You can return to using makeup after 24 hours.
When will I see results?
You’ll notice glowing skin immediately, and it will continue to improve for a few days following treatment!
How long will results last?
While your skin will benefit indefinitely from the nutrients it received, we view this treatment primarily as a garnish. Results are near immediate and last for a month or two, so you’re sure to look fabulous for whatever big life event is coming your way.
Does it hurt?
Topical numbing cream is applied for treatments to keep you comfortable. You may feel slight discomfort in sensitive areas such as the hairline and around the upper lip.
Are there any side effects?
Redness, bleeding, bruising and swelling are possible. These typically subside within 1 to 3 days after treatment.
Can I get microinfusion if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?
We recommend consulting with your doctor prior to receiving this treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
