What Is Microneedling?
Your skin works hard to protect you from your environment, and often we don’t care for our skin as we should. Improper cleansing and moisturizing, diet, sun exposure, and aging can all take a toll on your skin. Your tired skin may appear dull and thick, and you may experience sagging or unsightly blemishes. You can rejuvenate your skin, however, and see younger, brighter, smoother skin. Microneedling is a process that may safely and quickly produce the results you want.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Have you ever looked in the mirror and wished for a procedure that would promote new skin growth with minimal healing time? There are so many options out there, but not many of us have the luxury of time on our side. When a procedure requires weeks of recovery, it ceases to be an option for the majority of people.
Microneedling solves that problem. Microneedling is a controlled method of wounding the skin, which stimulates your body’s regenerative process to promote instant healing. This healing triggers the release of natural growth factors, mainly collagen and elastin, to repair and refresh your skin. Despite the minor irritation caused to the skin, the process is virtually painless.
Why Choose Microneedling Treatments?
There are many cosmetic skin procedures that do more harm than good, because they cause damage which is difficult to overcome with time–such as lasers, dermal rolling, or other ablative skin treatments. However, microneedling does quite the opposite. Instead of weakening your skin’s defenses, your skin quality is enhanced. As your skin quite literally gets thicker, it becomes more supple and beautiful. Creating a natural glow, your skin creates micro-channels which allow better absorption of creams and serums, which means the effects of microneedling will last far beyond the procedure itself.
With as low as 4 to 6 treatments required, microneedling will show results within 1-2 weeks. The healthier your skin, the sooner you will see these life-changing differences. Microneedling typically requires a minimal amount of recovery time, though many patients do not need more than a few hours to recover. Tighter, bright, younger-looking skin can be achieved in an afternoon with microneedling treatments. This treatment can be used anywhere on the body, including the hands, face, neck, chest, and to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
Not only will you be numbed during the treatment with a topical serum, the microneedles and collagen will be gently moved over the skin in one, sweeping direction. Once your entire face has been covered, you will be fresh-faced and ready to head back to your regular life in under 24 hours. You can quite easily get microneedling on a Friday and be back to work on the following Monday.
