Are you dealing with signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles? Or are you bothered by scars or uneven pigmentation? An advanced skin rejuvenation treatment called microneedling may be able to help. This technique involves the precision placement of tiny needles into the surface layers of the skin to trigger the development of new skin tissue less affected by signs of aging, scars, sun damage, and more.
Microneedling works by delivering safe, controlled injuries to the surface layers of your skin. Your body will respond to the treatment by creating new collagen and elastin fibers to help minimize imperfections found on the surface of the skin.
A needling session can offer you real results without the need for sedation or downtime. Your results will also appear quite soft and natural, as they continue to build over the following weeks and months. We are triggering the healing abilities of your own body to remodel your skin.
Microneedling can treat a wide range of skin conditions, including lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, enlarged pores, dull skin complexion, and scars caused by acne, injury, or surgery.
Unlike some treatments that may involve incisions or widespread skin damage, needling treatments only damage the skin to a pinpoint degree. The tiny injuries created by the technique are not visible to the naked eye. Since less skin damage is involved with this form of treatment, less recovery time is needed. Many patients are able to resume work or daily activities immediately after their procedure.
Unless you have extremely superficial skin problems, you would probably benefit from more than one needling procedure. Each successive treatment builds upon the results of prior treatment sessions. This leads to results that are very gradual, subtle, and natural in appearance.
Your skin may appear red and swollen immediately after your treatment. This is normal and it will fade within hours. There are some aftercare precautions that you need to be aware of so that you can obtain the best results possible from your microneedling session.
You should baby your skin for about three days after your treatment. Use lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser for cleaning your face. Treated skin should be gently dried. Keep your hands clean when touching the area of treatment. Use a good moisturizer and avoid applying makeup for a day after your treatment because topical products can penetrate more deeply into your skin during this time.
