Microneedling has become one of the most popular ways to maintain skin tightness and reduce the appearance of sun damage and signs of aging. It is simple, safe, and quite effective, but as with any type of treatment, it is important to understand what you are getting into so there are no surprises and you obtain the best results possible.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is an advanced skin treatment that involves the delivery of safe and controlled micro-injuries to the skin’s surface. This light damage triggers a skin rejuvenation process that results in the formation of new skin tissue displaying fewer imperfections like signs of aging, sun damage, acne scars, and more. Many patients appreciate the fact that their treatments do not require any sedation or downtime but still offer excellent results. A quick treatment allows them to resume work or daily activities immediately after their procedure.
How Does It Work?
This treatment works through the delivery of microscopic channels in the surface layers of your skin. This stimulates the formation of new collagen and elastin fibers to renew the appearance of skin affected by problems like wrinkles and sun damage. Over the weeks and months after your treatment, your body will gradually remodel your skin in a very soft and natural way.
What Happens During a Microneedling Treatment?
After thoroughly cleansing your skin in the treatment area, we will gently glide a special device over your skin in a series of passes. Each pass of this device produces numerous tiny openings in the surface layers of your skin. This coaxes your body into a skin rejuvenation process that can transform the appearance of your skin.
What Kinds of Conditions Does a Microneedling Treatment Help With?
Microneedling is able to treat a wide range of skin conditions including lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, blemishes, enlarged pores, dull skin tone, and scars caused by acne, injury, or surgery.
Would I Make a Good Candidate?
Virtually everyone would make a suitable candidate for microneedling. However, those with a current skin infection or active breakout must resolve these conditions prior to undergoing a treatment.
What Should I Do After My Treatment?
After undergoing a microneedling procedure, you should make sure to obtain the best results possible, which is why you need to carefully follow post-treatment instructions. Since we are creating microscopic openings in your skin, you should be very careful when it comes to cleaning and applying topical products. It is usually a good idea to only use a good, non-irritating moisturizer after your treatment. Any product that normally works well with your skin could create an adverse effect, since the channels created by the treatment allow products to reach more deeply than they normally would.
