Microneedling is one of the most popular skincare treatments available on the market for its transformative results and customizability. With a regular package of treatments, patients can enjoy rejuvenated skin and treatment for a variety of concerns.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling uses a principle called collagen induction therapy (CIT). It uses micro-needles to generate microscopic wounds in the skin and jumpstart the body’s natural wound-healing response. The result is a boost in collagen production over time, for healthier skin with a noticeable, youthful glow.
What Can Microneedling Treat?
Microneedling can be an effective option for skin concerns like:
- Mild to moderate aging signs
- Sun damage
- Visible pores
Microneedling can be customized to patients’ unique needs with adjustable factors like depth, number of treatments, and incorporating active ingredients.
Who’s a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
Patients who can benefit most from microneedling are those looking for effective skin rejuvenation and a reduction in noticeable skin concerns. Microneedling can be incorporated as a regular professional-grade treatment in your skincare regimen, or it can be used as a deep treatment to aggressively rejuvenate aging signs. Patients can create a customized treatment plan with their aesthetician during a consultation and also discuss candidacy factors like certain skin conditions. Keep in mind that more severe aging signs may require surgical intervention for best results.
What Happens During Microneedling?
Microneedling can be performed at our comfortable office. It begins with cleansing the skin and administering a local anesthetic for comfort during treatment. Once ready, the aesthetician will apply a specialized handpiece fitted with micro-needles to stimulate collagen. Overall, this process can take between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the patient’s unique treatment plan. Once complete, the skin is neutralized, and patients can return home.
Microneedling Results and Recovery
Immediately after treatment, patients can expect redness and sensitivity similar to a sunburn, which will subside within the next day or so. Our team will provide detailed instructions on caring for the treated skin with specific products to make sure the skin stays nourished and healthy. It’s important to wear sunscreen daily after treatment to prevent against sun damage. Patients can expect results to emerge over the course of the following weeks, with a noticeable change in the skin’s tone, appearance, and youthfulness. Patients can return for treatments monthly, depending on their unique needs and customized treatment plan.
