What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a skincare treatment that triggers your body’s regenerative powers to heal or reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sun spots, acne scars, and stretch marks. This treatment uses collagen induction therapy to achieve these results. Collagen and elastin are proteins that are necessary for keeping your skin firm, smooth, and healthy. Naturally, we produce less collagen and elastin as we age. That is why your skin loses its elasticity and firmness as you get older.
Microneedling works by stimulating the production of collagen by creating micro-channels across your skin. Your skin may see these tiny channels as wounds that need healing. This will trigger a healing response as your body sends more blood to the area being treated. The increase in blood flow will also increase the production of collagen, helping your skin heal previously damaged tissue.
Who Can Use Microneedling?
You do not have to be a certain age to enjoy microneedling benefits. You can start using microneedling at any age. It is not only an anti-aging treatment but can also treat a wide variety of skin concerns. Microneedling can be added to your skincare routine even if you don’t have a particular skin concern. Its benefits are far-reaching. Microneedling can reduce hyperpigmentation and loose skin, improve your complexion, eliminate wrinkles and acne scars, and give you radiant, glowing skin. Feel free to view our microneedling before and after images to see the remarkable results for yourself.
Schedule a Consultation
You may not know if microneedling is the right treatment for you. You can visit us for a consultation to learn more about microneedling and how it can benefit you in particular. During this session, we will ask you a few questions to determine whether microneedling is ideal for your skin concerns. You can trust us to provide reliable advice. You are more than welcome to ask us questions about the procedure so you can feel at ease.
The Microneedling Procedure
At the beginning of your microneedling session, we clean the area being treated and apply a topical numbing cream to eliminate any pain or discomfort. Once that is done, we can start the microneedling procedure. As the microneedles move over your skin, they create tiny, precise punctures to trigger your healing process. When we use microneedling on damaged or scarred tissue, it forces new cells to regenerate, leaving you with smooth, healed skin. Once we are finished creating the micro-channels, we will apply a serum to keep your skin hydrated.
The duration of a microneedling treatment depends on the area being treated. If you are treating more than one area, this will take longer. However, patients consider the treatments to be quick and easy.
Your body will begin to heal itself immediately after the treatment, but you may not see results yet. It takes time for your body to produce more collagen, and your skin will heal gradually. Patients start to see results within two weeks of their first treatment. You will continue to see improvements in your skin within the next month or two as your body continually produces more collagen. Microneedling is not a permanent treatment. Patients may need follow-up sessions every few months to maintain results.
Microneedling can offer immediate and long-term benefits. The more treatments you have, the better your skin will look. Here are a few compelling reasons to schedule a microneedling treatment.
Since microneedling relies on your body’s healing ability, it is considered a natural treatment. We don’t use harsh chemicals to treat your skin. Microneedling acts as a catalyst, forcing your body to heal damaged tissue and produce more collagen for firmer skin.
Microneedling can be used with other non-surgical treatments, such as PRP or radiofrequency heat. Combining these treatments can target a variety of skin concerns and have a more powerful effect on your skin.
If you have a busy schedule, you won’t need to buy out a lot of time for microneedling. Since it is not a surgical procedure, there is no downtime or lengthy healing period. You can jump back into your daily routine without any hassles. We will provide some guidelines to ensure better results, but these are easy and can usually be incorporated into your skincare routine.
Your Skincare Products Will Work Better
By creating tiny channels, your skin is more likely to absorb moisture and nutrients. This is the perfect time to nourish your skin to keep it healthy and hydrated.
