● Acne scars

● Wrinkles and fine lines
Safe and effective, our treatments are overseen by Dr. Homan Siman and his team of medical professionals. If you need Encino microneedling treatments, get in touch with our team today.

After a thorough consultation, we will set you up with the treatment you need to feel comfortable in your own skin again.
How Microneedling Works
At its core, microneedling therapy is about the production of collagen in your skin. As we age, time and injuries can take a toll on the collagen in our skin, leading to uneven skin tones, scarring, and unhealthy outer layers of skin. Whether through acne, wrinkles, or even sun exposure, the face is one area of the body that is often exposed to damaging conditions. As a result, the depletion of collagen is one significant factor in the aging process.
When you receive a microneedling treatment, your board-certified physician will use a microneedling device across the affected area. This produces minuscule holes in your skin, which are invisible to the naked eye. By causing slight harm, the needles alert your body to the need for repairs, which means producing more collagen-rich layers of skin. When the body heals through its natural processes, the result is healthier-looking skin with more even tones, fewer wrinkles, less visible age lines, and reduced sagging.
Common Areas to Target with Microneedling
The vast majority of microneedling treatments are performed on a client’s face. Some of the specific areas that might be targeted, according to Healthline, include:
● Acne spots
● Sagging or “inelastic” areas
● Enlarged skin pores
● Atrophic facial scars (scars below the skin’s surface)
● Sun spots (also known as age spots or liver spots)
When you come to Glow Aesthetic Center, our team of skilled physicians will help you develop a targeted microneedling treatment plan catered to your goals. We will go over your desired results and discuss the best approach to treatment with you so you are always in control of your treatment.
What to Expect After a Microneedling Treatment
A microneedling session typically lasts roughly 45 minutes, but it can be longer or shorter depending on your treatment plan. When it is over, you may experience some slight negative side effects, including:
● Redness or swelling
● Minor skin irritation
In most clients, these side effects diminish between two and four days after the treatment but results can vary based on factors like your lifestyle, age, exposure to sunlight, and other elements. Regardless, the procedure is minimally invasive and does not leave visible marks on the skin. You should not have to suffer any interruption to your daily life.

Even with a mild, sunburnt tinge to the skin, many clients see an immediate improvement in their skin tones, scars, spots, and wrinkles. However, immediate results are not the goal. Remember, microneedling aims to help the skin produce more collagen, which can take time. Usually, several weeks are needed before you see the full, wonderful results of your treatment. Some clients may need to wait three to six months before their skin achieves its final collagen-rich look.
At Glow Aesthetic Center, our Encino microneedling experts offer plans that range from four to six sessions. During your consultation, we will go over exactly what your skin needs and which treatment plan is right for you.
As a minimally invasive procedure, microneedling does not require you to take off work or spend days in bed. That’s one significant benefit of the treatment. However, there are some methods of aftercare that are important to observe, which your medical team will go over with you during your initial appointment.

First and foremost, your skin will be vulnerable after a microneedling treatment. It just had a bunch of tiny holes poked in it, so it’s sensitive. Make sure to wear plenty of sunscreen if you need to be outside, and avoid unnecessary sun exposure when possible.
It is safe to use makeup 24 hours after your microneedling treatment. Many clients prefer to apply a layer of makeup to mask the redness that can last for a few days after a session.
One session is not the end when it comes to a microneedling treatment regime. You will need to schedule between four and six sessions, depending on your skin’s needs. At Glow Aesthetic Center, we’ll set up for your next session right away so that you are always prepared.
