Are you looking for a way to improve the appearance of your skin with no downtime involved? A growing number of people are discovering how microneedling can significantly enhance their skin’s appearance without the need for hospitalization or any downtime. This type of minimally-invasive technique can offer real results with less expense, complications, and downtime often associated with traditional cosmetic surgery. It also helps those with signs of sun damage and other common skin problems.
A Closer Look at Microneedling
Microneedling is an extremely powerful, yet subtle, skin rejuvenation treatment. However, for many, the name itself is not so subtle. The treatment is actually very well tolerated with the use of a topical numbing agent. It involves the mechanical injury to very surface layers of skin to promote an increase of collagen production and skin remodeling.
A needling treatment can help improve the condition of skin affected by problems as diverse as wrinkles, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and scars caused by acne or injury.
The Microneedling Advantage
One of the reasons for the growing popularity of microneedling is that it provides results that are very subtle and natural in appearance. The patient is not injected with anything that could dramatically alter their facial profile and contours. The treatment allows us to work with your own body and stimulate its natural healing abilities to gradually, subtly, and naturally improve the condition and appearance of your skin over the following weeks and months after your treatment.
Another key reason for microneedling’s increasing popularity is its ability to offer real results with no need for downtime. This treatment involves the safe delivery of microscopic, pinprick injuries that heal rapidly, even as your skin is remodeling itself from beneath.
After thoroughly cleansing your skin in the treatment area, we can apply a topical numbing solution to ensure your comfort during your procedure. After your skin has become completely numb, we begin moving a device coated in tiny, sterile needles over your skin, forming thousands of microscopic punctures in it. Over the following weeks and months, this will dramatically boost your collagen levels in the treatment zone.
The best candidates for microneedling are those with no active breakouts or skin infections at the time of treatment. If you do have these conditions, you will need to resolve them before your needling session.
