If you’ve been considering microneedling for your beauty needs but have been on the fence about whether or not it is right for you, we’re here to answer all of your questions about this amazing treatment.
How Does It Work?
Microneedling works in a rather simple way: it prompts your skin to begin the healing process and also encourages collagen production, which is why this treatment is also known as collagen induction therapy. Collagen is a protein our bodies produce, and it gives your skin structure and helps it retain moisture. As we age, we slow down the production of collagen, which then changes the structure of our skin cells and tissue, and this is why we develop lines and wrinkles as well as other blemishes.
What Does the Treatment Entail?
Microneedling is done through the use of a special device. This hand-held tool contains many fine needles that will create microscopic channels in your skin that are not able to be seen with the human eye. Your body will sense these micro-openings and activate your healing ability. Fresh blood with lots of nutrients will be rushed to the needed areas, and your skin will also begin the restructuring process by creating healthy collagen.
Does It Treat Wrinkles?
Yes, microneedling is especially effective at treating fine lines and wrinkles. As we said above, low amounts of collagen in the skin are the cause of those lines and wrinkles. Microneedling treats these signs of aging by upping your collagen production, which then smooths out and eliminates those lines and wrinkles.
Does It Treat Scars?
Yes, microneedling also is able to treat various kinds of scars. The treatment will encourage new collagen growth, which will replace your previous scarred tissue.
What are the Other Benefits?
Microneedling can also generally improve the look and feel of your skin. Most of our patients report that their skin is smoother and tighter after their treatments. And you will also notice that your skin has more volume as well.
When Will I See Results?
Some of the results should show up almost right away. Also, because of all that collagen your skin will be producing, your results will only get better with time.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Usually, we recommend a series of treatments; however, it all depends on your situation and goals.
