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 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.
What should I avoid before microneedling?
Before your microneedling appointment, you should make sure to avoid certain retinoid-based medications like Accutane, as well as excessive heat and sun exposure. Youandrsquo;ll receive detailed instructions from your skincare specialist ahead of your treatment.
How long does it take to see results from microneedling?
It can take time for your skin to begin generating new collagen and healing from the microneedling process. In general, it can take around two weeks to begin to see noticeable results.
Are microneedling results permanent?
Microneedling results are not permanent. The best way to maintain your microneedling results is through a physician-grade skincare regimen and returning regularly for touch-up appointments.
Can microneedling reduce pore size?
Itandrsquo;s a misnomer that pore size can change. However, microneedling is an effective way to make pores less visible by reducing oiliness and improving skin tone.
Can I use a derma roller every day?
Dermarolling at home can actually have a negative impact on your skin by causing damage and increasing breakouts. Make sure to speak with your skincare specialist before trying dermarolling at home.
What does microneedling do?
Microneedling creates tiny channels or wounds in the skin to a precise depth to stimulate the bodys healing process, which in turn creates new collagen, enhances cell turnover, and tightens skin throughout the treatment area.
How much does microneedling cost?
A microneedling session can cost around $250 to $500 depending on your personalized treatment plan.
What to put on skin after microneedling?
The most popular serum to apply immediately after microneedling is hyaluronic acid, although we offer other formulas depending on your specific concern or skin condition.
How long does microneedling last?
A full course of microneedling (four to six treatments) creates results that can last a year or more.
How often can you do microneedling?
Your microneedling treatment plan will likely include appointments spaced at least two weeks apart depending on availability and your personal schedule.
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.
