Are you unhappy with your skin texture, hyperpigmentation, lines, and wrinkles, or more? If so, microneedling is a great treatment option! Not only is it minimally invasive, but it is also quick and effective, able to greatly improve your skin issues for a more even, rejuvenated complexion! Results are long-lasting, and there is little downtime. Our dermatologists are highly skilled in performing microneedling treatments, producing only the best results, so you can be sure you are in good hands.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure performed to stimulate collagen production in the skin, treating a number of skin concerns. During treatment, a special tool equipped with small needles will be used to create tiny channels in the dermis of the skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing process, creating collagen and elastin. Treatment results in improved skin texture and a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as treating hyperpigmentation.
This treatment can help improve skin issues, including:
- Dark spots (Hyperpigmentation)
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large pores
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
Who is a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
Healthy individuals who wish to improve their complexion or have not seen results with chemical peels can benefit from microneedling treatments. All skin tones can benefit from microneedling, unlike laser treatments, which do not work well on darker skin tones. If you have a history of keloids, this treatment may not be a good fit for you. Please contact our office today to schedule a consultation to determine if this treatment is right for you.
What to Expect During Microneedling?
Prior to microneedling, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to ensure you are comfortable. Then, your dermatologist will use a special pen-shaped tool to create micro-wounds in the skin. This will stimulate your body’s collagen and elastin production for a rejuvenated, healthier skin. A cream of serum may be applied following treatment to hydrate and protect the skin. Treatment sessions usually take about 30 minutes to complete.
Following your treatment, you may experience mild redness, bruising, and sensitivity. Be sure to keep your treatment area clean and avoid swimming in pools, lakes, and oceans. As your skin begins to heal, you may experience some tightness and flaking as well. Your dermatologist will provide you with specific instructions on how to care for your treatment area for the best possible results. Most people need 4-6 treatment sessions for optimal results. A noticeable improvement in skin texture can be seen within the next couple of weeks.
