There is no doubt about it; our patients love microneedling. More specifically, they love what this innovative procedure does for skin problems like scars, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other blemishes. Microneedling has the ability to completely transform the appearance of your skin without any real downtime or surgery.
What is Microneedling?
This is a skin rejuvenation treatment that involves affecting the skin in a certain way to promote an increase in collagen, an important skin component that adds bulk and elasticity to your skin. This substance becomes gradually depleted in older people or those with certain lifestyles or prolonged sun exposure. Virtually any problem appearing on your skin can be made better through this incredible treatment.
How is a Microneedling Treatment Performed?
During this treatment, we pass a hand-held device over your skin in a series of passes. Each pass of this device forms many tiny micro-channels in the very superficial layers of your skin. Your body responds to the treatment by removing damaged skin tissue and replacing it with fresh skin displaying fewer imperfections like signs of sun damage and aging.
What Conditions Can Be Treated?
Microneedling can treat skin conditions as diverse as lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, enlarged pores, and acne scars.
How Long Until I Notice Results?
Microneedling is a treatment that requires patience. Since we are not injecting a foreign substance into your body but working with your body’s own healing abilities, it will take weeks or months to achieve optimal results. Most patients notice their first results within just weeks after their treatment, with maximum results apparent in the months that follow.
Some patients only require one treatment, but most would benefit from multiple treatment sessions. You may see some initial improvement after your first treatment, but that is only the beginning. Unless your skin problems are extremely superficial, additional benefits will accrue with further treatments. Each treatment session will build upon the results of prior sessions.
Can the Treatment Be Combined with Other Procedures?
Yes; it can be combined with the application of a topical skincare product. The microscopic channels created by the treatment process allow for far greater penetration from lotions, creams, gels, ointments, and serums. This is because the outer barrier of your skin often prevents products with larger molecular sizes from penetrating very deeply. Greater skin penetration means that topicals are rendered much more effective by the treatment.
