Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure to treat skin concerns. It make surface level punctures on the skin with tiny needles, and the body works to heal the cuts and results in a refreshed look. The process rejuvenates your skin by boosting collagen production, which in turn reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and elevates the overall texture of your skin.

It is the latest technology that’s quickly replacing dermal rollers and other anti-aging methods on the market.
It usually requires 3-4 treatments to see noticeable improvements at initiation. Then 1-2 times each year for maintenance.
Microneedling FAQ (Snoqualmie, North Bend, Issaquah, Sammamish)
How does Exceed microneedling work?
Microneedling uses controlled damage to agitate the skin just enough to trigger a healing response. When very fine, single use needles penetrate the skin through the Exceed device, the deeper layers of skin respond with increased cell regeneration. The skin also starts to produce more collagen, which is what keeps it looking tight, smooth, and youthful. As we get older, collagen production tends to slow down. So, you might think of microneedling as a natural collagen infusion for the skin.
Does microneedling hurt?
It depends on the treatment intensity. But as the needles are very tiny the pain is most likely to be minimal. If you have sensitive skin, you can apply numbing cream to minimize pain during the procedure. You will experience some redness and mild swelling for 2 to 4 days. Your skin will become smoother and radiant in a week.
When will I see results with Exceed microneedling?
