Microneedling minimizes wrinkles, fine lines, and discoloration resulting in smoother and more even skin.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Most patients describe mild discomfort during the procedure and experience little to no downtime.
Microneedling is a treatment that is done on the skin with a special device that pricks the skin with tiny needles. The results of Microneedling is a reduction of the appearance of acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, and wrinkles also hyperpigmentation.
What is it exactly?
Microneedling – it is a skin treatment procedure that involves an electric skin-needling device. The device contains 12 very fine needles. It is used during micro-needling procedures to break down old scar tissue and push skin cell generation. Cell production leads to the creation of new layers of elastin and collagen fiber and leads to improved blood flow in the skin.
How does it work?
The device slides along the skin and penetrates upper layers of the skin to a customized depth to create tiny needle wounds. This signals the body to respond by producing collagen and elastin fibers. As a result, the skin becomes fuller, thus reducing the appearance of scars, lines, and wrinkles.
What does it treat?
Some of the conditions that medical microneedling is known to improve include: mild to moderate acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, skin texture and pore size, and stretch marks also hyperpigmentation.
What will I look like after treatment?
Most people will notice redness and mild swelling similar to slight sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be slight pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. Skin will be noticeably smoother and more radiant within a week or two. Full results will take a few weeks to appear.
What are the benefits?
Some of the known benefits of known microneedling are that it greatly improves topical cream effectiveness and penetration and stimulates blood circulation and collagen production; the needles are non-allergenic; it is cost-effective relative to other surfacing procedures; it works on all skin types; and it can treat the scalp, face, and body, including skin around the eyes, mouth, and neck.
How many treatments will I need?
Each patients skin condition determines the number of treatments that are needed. Moderate acne scars may need between three and four treatments, while thermal burns and stretch marks may need more. Conditions such as wrinkles caused by aging, one or two refresher treatments are recommended per year after your initial prescribed treatment package.
Microneedling can be safely repeated every four to six weeks as needed. Collagen induction requires at least three treatments, while scar reduction requires between three and six. Four to five weeks should pass between one treatment and the next. Microneedling can be used on all parts of the body. Usually results begin to appear after the first treatment.
Are there any side effects?
No negative side effects have been observed in the more than 150,000 microneedling procedures that have been done worldwide.
