Fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars are sometimes unavoidable. If you are looking for an anti-aging treatment that will give your skin a softer, more youthful appearance, give microneedling a try. At Luxe Aesthetics in Greensboro, NC, we offer microneedling rejuvenation treatments to those looking to improve their complexion.
What Are the Advantages of Microneedling?
There is a reason this treatment has grown in popularity over the years. It’s now one of the most popular minimally invasive treatments to combat skin blemishes, fine lines, and wrinkles. People love the results these non-surgical treatments provide over time.
Each treatment of microneedling improves your skin’s texture and appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles are diminished. Acne scars and blemishes fade away. You are left with a brighter skin tone and softer looking skin. The safe and effective rejuvenation treatments give you balanced texture and an overall glow.
One advantage to treatments is there is no downtime following your session. Each session is done easily and quickly, and you can go about your day routine when it’s complete. Each treatment can be done in less than an hour. It’s easy to fit a session into your day.
Microneedling is also minimally invasive and non-surgical, so there are no incisions you have to worry about tending to. These treatments are great for those looking to have smoother skin without the hassle of long recovery times.
Since the main component of the process is using your own body’s production of collagen to achieve results, the treatments use your body’s natural rejuvenating ability. There are no harsh chemicals involved and nothing harsh applied to the skin.
Your treatment plan is tailored to meet your skin’s needs. Each client is different, and your skin rejuvenation sessions will be customized to meet your skin’s specific needs. The treatment allows our professionals to target specific areas where you are seeking improvement. Each person’s results are different and, depending on your needs, your treatment plan is tailored to how many sessions and which areas you specifically need help in smoothing and stimulating collagen.
What Is MicroNeedling?
These safe and effective sessions involve a small device with several microneedles at the end. Once your skin is cleansed, our professionals will apply the device to the target area. During the treatment, a series of micro-channels are created, and this stimulates your body’s production of collagen.
Once collagen is produced, your skin is left looking softer and over time you will see more youthful skin. There will be some changes noticed immediately, but the real benefit is seen over time. The creation of the micro-channels signals a total skin replacement in your target area. This process does take a bit of time but the results will give you healthier skin.
After the Treatment
The great thing about collagen production is that it continues after your treatment is over. You will continue to see an improvement in your skin’s texture following your treatment. Depending on your results, you may choose to have more sessions to achieve your best results.
Collagen is your skin’s main structural protein, and it helps repair skin on a cellular level. Enhancing this process is what makes this treatment so popular and successful. Collagen production tends to slow down as we age, and damage from the sun and other environmental factors can cause our skin to age faster. Giving collagen a boost improves skin’s texture and helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles that come along with time.
The Treatment Device
The device used during your treatment is also tailored to meet your skin’s specific needs. The needles come in varying lengths, and our professionals will make sure to use the right length based on your skin. There is a roller device that is used to treat cheeks and for areas that are harder to reach, there is a smaller pen-shaped device that can be used. All of this will be custom to you and your treatment plan.
Are You a Good Candidate?
People of all ages are good candidates for microneedling. It can be applied to any part of the face where you may need rejuvenation. It’s not just for women either. Men can take advantage of these treatments for their fine lines and acne scars.
No Harsh Chemicals or Incisions
You are a good candidate if you are looking for a treatment that doesn’t use harsh chemicals. Since these treatments don’t require incisions and are minimally invasive, it’s a good option for those that don’t want any downtime. Many people prefer to have treatments that are quick and effective, and microneedling meets both those desires without the risk and worry that comes with surgical procedures.
When you meet with our professionals for your initial consultation, we will make sure you are a good candidate for these treatments as well as any other treatments we offer. We will go over your medical history and make sure you don’t have any issues with healing. It’s important that you have a healthy lifestyle and seek a healthy lifestyle after your treatments.
It’s also recommended you continually use sunscreen before and after any facial treatment you have, as the sun is one of the largest contributors to skin damage and aging of the skin. When skin ages and begins to sag due to sun damage and other environmental factors, fine lines and wrinkles are created.
It’s always best to take care of your skin the best you can and this will in return help you achieve better results after each treatment.
Who Benefits From This Treatment?
People who suffer from hyper pigmentation will see benefits with this treatment. Hyper pigmentation is dark spots on your skin. These are the result of our body producing more melanin, which is the pigment that gives skin its color.
Dark spots can be caused by many factors, from too much sun to aging to genetics. Skin rejuvenation helps reduce the appearance of hyper pigmentation and helps prevent it from occurring in the future. When your body stimulates collagen in these areas and new skin is revealed, the dark spots will fade and many times disappear. The skin left will be smoother and more evenly toned.
Acne Scars and Blemishes
Those who have acne scars will see much better texture and smoothness in their skin. Blemishes are less visible after a series of treatments, and even tones left over from acne will fade away.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
The amazing thing about these rejuvenation sessions is that fine lines and wrinkles can vanish altogether. This is what makes these treatments so incredibly popular. Many people have a more youthful appearance after lines around their eyes, forehead, and cheek area are gradually erased from the increased production of collagen.
The natural healing process almost erases the effects of aging and sagging skin that cause these lines to appear in the first place. Your body uses its own natural healing process to improve your skin with these treatments. People who are healthy and heal quickly will see the best results.
What Happens After the Treatments?
Once your first treatment is complete, you simply wait for the results to appear. Most people will have multiple sessions to achieve their best results. A schedule of your sessions will be discussed with you during your initial consultation and after your first treatment.
Since the device used in the treatments works on certain areas at a time, it’s best to have follow up treatments to make sure all of the skin in your target area is receiving the micro-channels needed to boost collagen production.
Other Treatments Available
Many people like to combine microneedling with other available treatments to give your skin the best chance to be healthy and improve its youthful appearance. This might be using special products, like serums or creams, or by taking advantage of other treatments we offer.
Adding Anti-Aging Treatments
Because of the micro-channels that are created in the skin, microneedling is a great time to add anti-aging products to your routine. Your skin will absorb them, and they will go deeper. Some products will penetrate the channels and enhance your body’s production of collagen.
Using topical serums for anti-aging and antioxidant creams are great for skin health and appearance, but they go much farther when combined with a treatment like microneedling.
When Should You Receive Treatments?
The sessions take less than an hour in our offices, and since there is no downtime, they can be scheduled around your needs. Many people like to have sessions spaced out in time so they have smoother, youthful skin for major events or holidays.
There is no need to worry about the effects of harsh chemicals or surgical procedures with these treatments, so they are easy to schedule. Since your body needs to produce collagen to see the best results, you should space this out in advance of when you want to look your best.
Another thing to take into consideration is that these treatments not only treat skin blemishes and help with fine lines and wrinkles that already exist, but they also help prevent the creation of fine lines and wrinkles. Because your body is healing itself naturally with the stimulated collagen production, your skin is newer and healthy and therefore less likely to sag which causes fine lines and wrinkles in the first place.
Makeup and moisturizers alone can’t fix fine lines and wrinkles. You can do your best to cover acne scars with makeup, but sometimes they still show through. When your skin is healthier, it shows. Everything you put on smoother skin only makes it better.
We all know that over-the-counter moisturizers aren’t the answer. Having a treatment plan with professionals will help you achieve your skincare goals and give you the best chance to look your best. There is no reason to wait to have rejuvenation treatments. They can diminish your wrinkles and help prevent them in the future.
