Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure aimed at stimulating the body’s collagen and elastin production. The microneedling technique is used to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin, as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimize pores, stretch marks, and scarring. Many patients find this an effective way to reduce the signs of aging.
Microneedling has many benefits such as:
Microneedling is gentle enough to treat sensitive and fragile areas that are difficult to treat with other procedures such as the face, neck, chest, arms, legs, abdomen, and back.
The purpose of the microneedling treatment is to activate and stimulate the normal process of wound healing. The treatment is performed in an office and will take a little over an hour to complete depending on the area to be treated. Prior to the actual treatment, a numbing cream will be applied to the area. The micro-needling device will puncture the skin in as the technician glides the device over the treatment area multiple times. Because of the topical anesthetic gel, the procedure will be almost painless. After the procedure, growth factor serum is applied, the skin will feel warm and tight, with some redness. These side effects are temporary and will subside within a matter of hours. Sun protection is recommended for several weeks afterward. Most people will begin to see results after the very first appointment. However, for best results, it is recommended that patients receive a series of 3- 6 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.
