Microneedling has exploded in popularity over the last few years, and this amazing treatment could help you erase age-related imperfections throughout your face. During this procedure, we are going to create thousands of microscopic channels in the outermost layers of your skin. As a response, your body will produce an abundance of collagen, elastin, and other vital proteins. In the weeks following the treatment, your skin is going to transform before your eyes as your blemishes fade away.
Unlocking Your Body’s Natural Healing Response
This non-surgical treatment has been around for well over 100 years, but it wasn’t perfected until the 1990s. Microneedling was originally used to minimize the appearance of old scars, but cosmetic specialists soon realized that it could be used to treat a wide variety of imperfections on the surface of the skin. That includes acne scars, large pores, pigmentation issues, stretch marks, and age spots. Many patients also undergo this treatment to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
Your First Microneedling Appointment
We want all of our patients to look and feel their best, and that is why we customize every single treatment. During your initial consultation, we will go over your medical history and speak with you about your cosmetic goals. If are a good candidate for microneedling, then we can carry out your first treatment session the very same day. The procedure itself takes around 30 minutes to complete, but your appointment might last longer if you are having multiple areas treated. We begin this treatment by applying a topical numbing cream to prevent any discomfort. After your skin is numb, a team member will guide the handheld microneedling device over your skin.
The results of this treatment aren’t immediate, but many of our patients notice improvements within two or three weeks. During your recovery period, you must protect your skin from direct sunlight. We also suggest that you drink plenty of water and stick to a healthy diet so that your body can continue to produce plenty of collagen and elastin. Once your skin has fully recovered, you will need to schedule follow-up appointments to further improve the results. Most patients need between three and six treatment sessions.
