I love my family, my community, and my craft. On this JOY Journey, I decided to be unapologetically me. Yep, I am going to embrace that I love so many things. I simply cannot choose just one. I am the founder of Norabloom, an Esthetician, and a photographer.

Hey Y'All I'M HOlly 

Microneedling is back!

Microneedling is also known as Fractional Collagen Induction Therapy

This is a remarkable, non-laser, non-surgical treatment that causes skin to stimulate collagen production and fresh, new tissue. Skin tightens; wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, and hyperpigmentation significantly diminish; pores become finer; and the overall health and circulation of the skin is improved.

How Does it Work?
Microneedling utilizes precisely spaced micro needles in a small cartridge to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations into the top layers of the skin. As a result the skin shifts its natural repair mechanism into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin. The self-repairing property of the skin is a 100% natural form of skin renewal. Adjustable needle length from .2 to 2.5mm allows customized treatments from skin freshening to deep scar repair anywhere on the body. Skin becomes firmer and regains its elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become firmer, circulation is stimulated and the overall condition of the skin improves.

After the initial treatment, clients often notice that their skin has a healthy pink glow and that fine lines are diminished. Skin naturally takes four weeks to synthesize new collagen, but it is not until about four months that patients can see the full effect of the treatments. It is suggested that clients receive four treatments, spaced at least four weeks apart.

The Treatment
The Microneedling treatment is a micro-needling treatment that stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. Since micro-needling enhances the production of collagen the treatment can reverse the signs of sun damage, improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks and hyper-pigmentation. Fine lines and wrinkles can be reduced and an overall healthier appearance of the skin will occur.

Areas to Treat
Microneedling can be used on all skin parts of the body (neck, décolleté, arms, legs and face.)

Typically the healing time depends on the severity of the damaged skin and the depth of the procedure. Most commonly there may be some redness that resembles mild sunburn. This may last for 2-4 days. Some patients may have the redness dissipate within 24 hours. The skin will be pink or red in appearance for 24-48 hours, much like a sunburn with some minor bleeding and very occasionally some mild bruising. The skin may also feel warm, tight and itchy for a short while. Generally the inflammatory reaction of the skin is short and fades significantly after a couple of days. Clinets with a more sensitive skin type or older patients may take longer to fully recover.

Aftercare Treatment
Use tepid water to cleanse the face for the first 48 hours following treatment and drying the area gently without rubbing. Always use clean hands to avoid infection. Avoid applying makeup products for the first 12 hours following treatment. It can take between 6-8 weeks before visible signs of skin regeneration are seen and the process will continue to evolve over the ensuing months providing a gradual improvement.

When will you see results?
Clients may notice healthier looking skin right away. However, keep in mind that dermal collagen remodeling occurs over time and it would not be realistic to expect damage that has happened to the skin over a long period of time to disappear right away. We suggest a series of 4-6 sessions depending on what the treatment is for. Individuals may not see final results until 3-6 months following the last appointment.

*If you use RX Vitamin A products discontinue 48 hours prior to Microneedling treatment.
*If you receive Botox, fillers, or injectables of any kind, schedule this treatment 2 weeks after your filler/injectables so they have time to settle in.
