What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a treatment that transforms the skin by creating a series of tiny punctures or “micro wounds” which trigger the skin’s healing process, and cause an increase in collagen production. More collagen means thicker skin with less fine lines, wrinkles and scars. As the skin heals it completely renews from deep within. Skin is smoother, more refined, and radiant as a result.
What are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Microneedling is a safe procedure that helps stimulate your skin to build more of its own collagen. It can help to lessen acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles and create plumper skin over time. Patients appreciate microneedling for its ease and clear results. It is a procedure that is often done as a series of treatments on a monthly basis for maximal results.
What can I expect from Microneedling?
Right after treatment, you’ll likely notice some slight redness and possibly swelling. You may have pinpoint bruising in some areas. These fade quickly and you can begin to apply mineral makeup 24 hours after your treatment to cover any tiny marks.
Patients enjoy seeing how the skin is changed with microneedling treatment. Fine lines and wrinkles are less obvious, pitted acne scars may become more subtle, and the overall texture of the skin is more even. Patients also often notice a difference in skin laxity – skin becomes firmer and more defined as a result.
