Youthful skin is characterized by being radiant, firm, and soft. As your face ages, these qualities become less and less, leading to lines, wrinkles, and creases. Environmental damage from the sun and pollution can cause spots to form while the natural pull of gravity creates a droopy, older look. Over the years, it can be more and more difficult to maintain the vibrant skin you once enjoyed. At Flawless Skin by Abby, we are thrilled to bring you among the top microneedling in Nigeria to boost your skin’s natural glow from the inside out.
Microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, uses a hand-held applicator that has a series of very small needles. As it rolls over your skin, the needles puncture the skin causing a series of micro-channels in the facial skin. These tiny channels cause your body to call on its own healing properties, increasing your production of collagen and elastin to provide volume, fullness, and radiance.
When you create a series of small channels on the facial skin, your skin is stimulated to produce fresh, new skin cells. The new tissue is rich in collagen, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, diminishing the appearance of scars, and evening texture and tone. What’s more, your increased production of collagen will add volume and fullness. You’re left with skin that positively glows, with a significant boost to your self-confidence! Contact Flawless Skin by Abby for some of the best microneedling in Abuja.
Microneedling isn’t just for the face. It can also be used on the neck, chest, back, and the back of your hands to reduce the visible signs of aging. Microneedling can be used to treat a variety of skincare concerns including:
Microneedling treatments are performed in our luxurious Nigeria facilities. It is necessary that you cease use of all retinols, acids, exfoliants, or other chemical treatments at least three days before your microneedling session. A topical anesthetic will be applied, allowing you to be comfortable during your procedure. The microneedling pen will be passed over the surface of your skin, creating a series of tiny pricks. Your technician will move the pen evenly over your skin, allowing uniform treatment, followed by skin-restoring serums that can now enter the skin and get to work. Treatment typically takes approximately 30 minutes.
You can expect mild to moderate swelling, irritation, and redness for the first 24 hours following your microneedling session. Most patients compare it to that of a sunburn. In the following days, your skin may flake or peel as it begins to renew itself. You should avoid exercise for 12 hours following your treatment and may resume wearing makeup after 24 hours. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve optimal results. You should see a more youthful glow to your complexion within a couple weeks of treatment.

Risks associated with microneedling are quite minor but can include bruising, swelling, or bleeding. Always ensure this treatment is performed at a top-rated skincare clinic to avoid the risk of complications.
Yes, especially PRP or hyaluronic acid as their absorption into the skin is significantly increased when combined with microneedling.
There should be no exfoliating, scrubbing or stress on the skin after microneedling. Specific soothing creams can be suggested and used during the first week to help the skin heal, but most other skincare products should be avoided. Allow the skin to heal naturally without interference, especially during the first few days.
After the first few sessions of microneedling, especially when combined with PRP or other skin-boosting products, you may see new tissue formation for up to a year after treatment. This will be observable as firmer and more elastic skin, with a softer, more youthful glow.
This depends on your skin quality or skin conditions that you are trying to address but generally somewhere between three to six treatments should be scheduled with about a month or more in between sessions to allow the skin time to heal. After the initial sessions then you may want to schedule treatments once or twice a year to maintain results.
Microneedling is not generally considered painful although there may be some slight discomfort during the treatment. There is usually a numbing cream or solution applied prior to the microneedling treatment which makes it more comfortable. Also it is a fairly quick and easy procedure.
