If home skin products are no longer proving effective, but you don't want surgical procedures, try nonsurgical treatments to rejuvenate the skin, such as microneedling. Our team is happy to offer microneedling (collagen induction therapy) at our office in Bellevue, WA. Microneedling uses several fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries prompt the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that contribute to the overall health and appearance of your complexion. Often performed with other skin treatments, like vitamin serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma), microneedling can help reduce scars, stretch marks, and pores. Schedule a consultation at Absolute Aesthetics to learn more about the results of microneedling and how to customize your procedure for your skin concerns and goals.

1. Q: What is microneedling?

A: Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles. The small wounds caused by the needles prompt the body to make more collagen and elastin, which heals your skin and makes you look younger. It can help reduce the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.

2. Q: Is microneedling painful?

A: While microneedling involves creating tiny punctures in the skin, the pain is typically minimal because a topical anesthetic is applied beforehand to numb the skin. After the procedure, you may experience some temporary discomfort, similar to a mild sunburn.

3. Q: What is the recovery time after microneedling?

A: Microneedling is considered a minimally invasive procedure with little downtime. Many people experience redness and swelling for a few days following the treatment, but most can return to normal activities within 24 hours.

4. Q: What skin types are suitable for microneedling?

A: Microneedling is typically safe for all skin types and colors, as it doesn't involve heat like lasers do, which can affect skin pigment.

5. Q: How many treatments will I need?

A: The number of treatments needed varies depending on your individual skin concerns. However, most people need a series of three to six treatments, spaced about four to six weeks apart for optimal results.

6. Q: What are the potential side effects of microneedling?

A: Side effects are usually minor and temporary. They can include redness, swelling, and mild discomfort. However, in rare cases, people may experience more severe side effects such as bleeding, bruising, infection, or skin pigment changes.

7. Q: Can I use skincare products after microneedling?

A: Immediately after microneedling, it's best to keep the skin clean and only use a gentle cleanser and moisturizer. You will be advised as to when to resume your normal skincare routine.

8. Q: Is there anyone who should not get microneedling?

A: Microneedling may not be suitable for people with certain skin conditions, like an active herpetic infection. It's also generally avoided in individuals who have a history of poor wound healing or keloid scarring.

Each microneedling treatment is tailored to your specific situation and needs. Schedule your consult today.

The Microneedling treatment is an in office procedure and begins with the application of local anesthesia or numbing cream and the treatment time for microneedling is generally around 30 – 60 minutes.  


Once the microneedling is done, a treatment or a serum with a vitamin infusion, can be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be massaged in along with sun protection since your skin will be more sensitive after the treatment.



Finding a good provider for electrolysis is not the easiest job I can think of, but I really lucked out when I found Elizabeth of Absolute Aesthetics. She is very kind and respectful as well as skilled and professional. I am happy that I am able to see her often with my busy work schedule. I highly recommend her for her outstanding work!!-Deanna

As an electrologist: *Very knowledgeable * RN, medical expert *Very thorough, fast technique *Genuinely seeing results *Clean, comfortable offices *Cares about you as a person *Not pushy, listens to what you want *Tries to be flexible for you *An all around great person My story: While seeing another electrologist and experiencing bad reactions (large painful bumps under the skin, little change in hair growth, excessive acne) I called Elizabeth for a second opinion. Not knowing her yet, I expected her to tell me to come in for a consultation before discussing anything. Most people would, but not Elizabeth. She answered every one of my questions and listened to every one of my concerns. After 15 minutes on the phone with her, I understood more about the process of electrology and what to expect than after two months of treatments with another esthetician. At the end of that conversation, she didn't ask me to make an appointment or come in for a consultation. That amazed me. She helped me and expected nothing in return and she seemed so happy to do so. That's who she is. I trusted her expertise and knowledge, so I knew I wanted her to treat me. She made an electrology appointment for me on the spot, within a couple of days. Fast forward a couple of months and I have been hair free for 2 straight weeks without shaving, plucking, waxing, using creams, whatever! I went out in the bright sunshine today without worrying that someone would see my facial hair. That hasn't been possible for me for over TEN YEARS! I used to have to manage the hair 1-2 times EVERYDAY! I haven't even thought about it in WEEKS! Can you imagine the relief? Elizabeth gave that to me. If you're like me and you've suffered from unwanted hair, your self-esteem had been crushed, and you're sick of worrying that people will see... Do yourself a favor, call Elizabeth and make an appointment. Not all electrologists will give you the results you're hoping for--she will!
