Do you need treatment for facial lines and wrinkles that are making you look older than you actually feel? Do you want excellent results without any requirement for downtime? If so, a treatment with microneedling may be exactly what you are looking for. This minimally invasive technique is able to treat a wide range of skin conditions including a poor complexion, wrinkles, scars, hyperpigmentation, and more.
What It Is
Microneedling is an advanced skin rejuvenation technique that can completely renew your complexion in a minimally invasive way. No surgical openings, hospitalization, sedation, or downtime is necessary. The treatment works on the principle that delivering controlled skin openings helps to trigger a self-repair process in your body that results in the turnover of old skin cells that are replaced by new ones. As new collagen is created and deposited, skin problems begin to fade away.
What It Treats
A microneedling treatment is able to deal with a wide range of skin conditions including acne scars, hyperpigmentation, lines and wrinkles, blemishes, stretch marks, and more.
What to Expect
Your microneedling treatment begins by thoroughly cleansing your skin in the treatment area. Your technician will then gently glide a special device over your skin in a series of sweeps. Each pass of the device creates numerous microscopic injuries in the surface layers of your skin. In the weeks and months after your treatment, your skin will gradually remodel itself. Wrinkles, scars, hyperpigmentation, and other problems will begin to fade away. You will be able to resume your daily activities immediately after your needling session.
Some patients choose to have their microneedling treatment combined with the application of topical skin care products like ointments, lotions, creams, gels, and serums. The virtually invisible punctures created by the treatment allow many topicals to flow past the outer barrier of the skin and enjoy far greater penetration and effectiveness.
In addition to making an effective solo procedure, microneedling patients typically benefit from multiple treatment sessions. The effects of the treatment are cumulative, and unless your skin problems are extremely minor, you would likely benefit from multiple sessions. You will just need to wait a few weeks between each treatment session so that your skin has time to heal and remodel completely.
