What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a collagen-stimulating treatment excellent for general skin rejuvenation. The process treats textural issues dealing with pores, acne scars, wrinkles, & tightening.
Microneedling is an advanced process that works by creating several microscopic holes in the top layer of the skin to trigger the healing process. Unlike other skin rejuvenation and repair methods, the microneedling process is unique because it utilizes the body’s natural repair mechanisms to produce collagen in the areas of injury, reducing scars and tightening the skin. Another benefit of microneedling is that it is less expensive than other forms of skin rejuvenation, such as laser treatments.
What to expect?
If you are nervous at the prospect of needles, there’s no need to be. Needles used in professional treatments are tiny, usually between 0.5mm and 3mm in length. The sensation isn’t painful, and although the process will create some skin redness, recovery is relatively quick. You can see an incredible improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and other facial blemishes.
How does the treatment work?
First, you’ll receive an application of a numbing cream expertly applied to your targeted areas helping to ensure you have a pain-free experience. Next, our med spa technician will gently move a pen-shaped tool or rolling tool with tiny needles all around your face. These needles will do their work of making minor punctures in your skin, which, as mentioned, will cause a bit of bleeding (trust us, it’s a good thing); this immediately triggers the healing processes that result in skin rejuvenation.
How soon can you expect results?
And just what are the results and benefits of microneedling? It can ease the appearance of acne and acne scars, address hyperpigmentation, large pores, stretch marks, or sun damage, and reduce skin elasticity.
After your Microneedling treatment, you can expect to see results within 5-10 days, with results expected to last between 3-6 months. It should take about 3 treatments for most to see complete and vibrant results.
Is microneedling suitable for all skin types?
The beauty of the precision through a microneedling device is the control that comes with it. If you suffer from acne or rosacea, it doesn’t mean that the rest of the skin needs to be left untreated; we work to avoid the active or overly sensitive areas. The procedure is not recommended for younger skin types unless for targeted areas such as scars or hyperpigmentation.
Can microneedling help other areas?
The overall goal of microneedling is to jumpstart your body’s healing process by waking up the collagen and elastin to patch up the slight injuries made by the microneedles. Collagen is a good friend to anyone seeking skin rejuvenation as it helps fill in and smooth out wrinkles. That being said, most people do get microneedling on the face, but it can also be done to heal and smooth out other parts of the body, including the stomach or thigh areas.
