The effects of aging, sun exposure, injuries, acne, and other damaging environmental factors can permanently alter the appearance and quality of the skin. Facial skin is especially prone to developing a rough texture, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and other indicators of damage and aging. Microneedling is a medical treatment that can restore smooth, soft, unblemished, youthful, and evenly toned skin in the face and body. By destroying damaged skin and encouraging skin renewal, microneedling can refresh the complexion and revitalize the appearance.
Candidates for microneedling have one or more of the following concerns about their skin:
- Rough skin texture
- Fine lines
- Enlarged pores
- Skin laxity
- Acne scars
- Other scars
- Stretch marks
- Thinning skin
Your microneedling procedure will be performed at our office in 30 minutes or less. First, the treatment area will be cleaned and coated with a topical gel. Topical numbing is applied to make the treatment comfortable. Next, the automated needling device will be used to treat the skin. This device works by sending tiny needles into the damaged skin, and these small needles create micro-injuries at the superficial level. The small wounds produced by microneedling stimulate a natural biological response within the skin to heal the newly injured tissue. Disrupting the tissue to create a new healing response allows the body to produce more collagen, elastin, and growth factors to reform healthy skin to replace the damaged tissue. Microneedling treatments can be customized to meet individual patient needs with adjustable needle depths and treatment intensity. Patients may achieve the most desirable results by undergoing several treatments.
After your microneedling treatment, your skin will be sensitive to sunlight. Using an SPF and covering up is extremely important. To protect your skin against lasting damage, avoid direct sunlight for at least 24 hours and possibly up to four days. Do not plan on undergoing this treatment soon before a trip or before spending a lot of time in the sun. Some patients will observe a temporary flush or red, “sun-kissed” skin in the treated area over the next two days. Your skin may immediately feel firmer and tighter. The skin will act similar to a sponge after treatment and be very absorbent, so it is recommended to use medical-grade skin care for the best results. Over the following weeks and months, your body will produce more collagen, elastin, and new, healthy cells in the treated area, causing your results to continually improve. Your skin will gradually become softer, smoother, healthier, and more even in tone. With your personalized microneedling treatment plan, you will experience noticeable improvements in the appearance, feel, and vitality of your skin. We offer a variety of package options to meet your individual needs.
