One of the latest cosmetic treatments is microneedling. It’s become incredibly popular because it treats a variety of skin issues, and it really works. Today’s society is full of different skin care techniques and tricks to keep you looking younger. No one wants to feel old, much less look it! A number of different options can help you look as young as you feel.
What Microneedling Treats
Microneedling can target a variety of different skin blemishes and issues. It’s used to target acne scars, other kinds of scars, and an uneven skin tone. In addition, it treats signs of aging by reducing age spots, wrinkles, and fine lines. It can treat large pores and even your skin tone.
As you get older, your skin begins to produce less collagen, which causes it to lose its elasticity. Microneedling stimulates collagen production to increase your skin’s elasticity, which helps smooth wrinkles.
The face isn’t the only place this treatment is used, either. It can also sometimes be used for the treatment of stretch marks. If you have scarring on other portions of your body, a microneedling treatment might also be helpful.
How it Works
The goal of the treatment is to encourage your skin to produce more collagen. As you age, your skin naturally decreases its collagen production, which is what leads to signs of aging. Tiny channels from the treatment cause a very small injury to your skin. In response, your skin creates tissue rich in collagen to protect itself.
The newly generated skin tissue will have a more even texture and tone. Microneedling treatments are helpful because they encourage your skin to make its own collagen, rather than artificially replacing anything. You’ll find your skin feels firmer after the collagen production increases.
The treatment involves our doctor making tiny channels beneath your skin. These channels are small enough that you probably won’t see them following the treatment. The device will move across the skin evenly to encourage even rejuvenation.
Short Recovery Time
Since the treatment isn’t invasive, there’s a very short amount of recovery time. Our doctor might apply a soothing agent to your face once the process is over, but most people don’t need any downtime. They can go straight back to school or work.
You’ll have to make sure to wear sunscreen, since your skin will have increased sun sensitivity. As far as results go, you’ll tend to see them within a few weeks following the treatment. When you have your consultation, you may be recommended for several treatments to provide maximum results.
