It’s never exciting when those early signs of facial aging start to make themselves known, but you don’t always have to undergo an invasive surgical procedure to enjoy a rejuvenated facial appearance. Microneedling is just one of the ways we can walk back the clock with a minimally-invasive procedure that won’t have you missing a beat.
Turn Back the Clock with Microneedling
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that creates tiny “micro-injuries” in the outermost layers of your skin, using a series of extremely tiny needles. Microneedling devices include rollers with wheels of needles and pens with a cluster of needles at the tip. The slight injury they cause stimulates the production of collagen, the scaffolding under the skin, which then improves the appearance of some scars and wrinkles. The mechanism of injury is a natural process, which makes microneedling a holistic approach to skin therapy, enabling you to enjoy incredible results without having to undergo surgery.
How Can Microneedling Help Me?
By stimulating your skin’s production of collagen and elastin, microneedling can address an impressive number of skin-related issues. These compounds are naturally produced by your body and go a long way towards helping your skin retain moisture, so you can enjoy that youthful, healthy glow.
- Fine lines
- Enlarged pores
- Acne scarring
- Stretch marks
How the Microneedling Procedure Works
Microneedling utilizes a special tool, with a series of extremely tiny needles that create what are called “micro-channels” in your skin. This essentially makes your body believe it’s been wounded, so it sends reparative compounds to the area. Collagen and elastin then go to work, helping your skin maintain volume, retain moisture, and generally hang on to that youthful glow.
Incredible Results with No Downtime
This treatment involves little to no downtime, beyond a bit of redness and some minor swelling in the treatment area, which will subside after no longer than a day.
Microneedling can be safely repeated every four to six weeks until the desired results are achieved, and the number of treatments required depends on how each individual responds to treatments. On average, it takes three to six treatments to achieve desired goals.
