Sometimes the slow but steady approach is best. For positive skin rejuvenation, microneedling is one of the most effective treatments. By promoting the creation of new collagen and elastin in the skin layers, the entire skin surface can be made smoother and more youthful in appearance. Our Greensboro clients thrill to the results they experience after choosing a series of skin needling treatments as their means to reduce wrinkles, diminish the appearance of regional hyperpigmentation, and restore suppleness to the skin layers.
Microneedling is minimally invasive, and each treatment in the series can be completed in less than one hour. The creation of controlled channels in the skin signals total skin replacement, and although this takes time, the subtle changes are soon noticeable. Below, we offer an overview of the treatment and describe what you can expect when you choose this method of skin health revitalization.
Promotes Healthy Skin
What happens in the creation of micro-openings in the skin is that the body responds by rushing nutrients to the affected area. The needles are so thin that most of the skin remains wound-free. As the channel wounds become filled with newly created collagen and primary cells, a second treatment is performed, and this time, other areas of the skin surface, previously left alone, are now poked full of holes. After a few treatments, the entire surface has been needled, but of course, not all of it was treated at the same time.
After the series of treatments is completed, the real magic begins. Slowly but surely, the skin surface becomes smoother in appearance. Wrinkles vanish, small areas of hyperpigmentation are gone, and scars and blemishes are far less visible.
How We Perform the Treatment
During a consultation, we will examine your facial features closely and listen to your concerns about wrinkles, skin sagging, blemishes, and dull skin appearance. We will design a customized treatment that targets all of the problem spots.
We will use a roller device to treat the cheeks, and we will use a smaller, pen-shaped instrument to needle the hard-to-reach areas. The needles come in varying lengths, and we’ll choose the proper length based on the thickness of the skin.
In most cases, a topical anesthetic isn’t required, and we can apply a soothing gel after the needling treatment is completed. There’s no downtime after treatment. We’ll give you specific instructions on how to cleanse the skin between treatments.
This is a far less invasive treatment than laser resurfacing, dermabrasion, or deep chemical peels. It’s also less risky than light energy therapy because there’s no risk of skin bleaching when microneedling is performed.
