Do you have skin conditions that are negatively affecting the appearance of your face? Problems like lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and rough skin texture are common skin complaints that can be addressed with a simple treatment called microneedling. Many people mistakenly believe that only surgery can fix problems like these. The reality is that a minimally-invasive technique is available to minimize these problems and rejuvenate your overall skin texture in a safe and effective manner.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive skin enhancement treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. Treatments do not take long and can significantly improve the appearance and condition of your skin.
The process involves passing a small device covered with many sterile, tiny needles over the surface of your face. The needles are quite small and penetrate the skin to a shallow depth. These tiny micro-injuries stimulate your body into forming new collagen and elastin at the treatment site, leading to skin resurfacing and rejuvenation.
Microneedling is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation method that is safe and effective. Since no incisions are necessary during your treatment, you can expect to have virtually no downtime after your procedure. Most patients are able to resume their daily activities immediately following treatment. Microneedling helps minimize wrinkles, scars, blemishes, and improve overall skin texture.
If you have experienced a diminishment of blemishes, scars, or wrinkles following your microneedling treatment, you will probably benefit from additional treatments. The skin enhancement effects of microneedling are cumulative. However, you must wait a certain amount of time between treatments to give your skin time to heal completely from your previous treatment.
Microneedling works very well in combination with other treatments like the application of topical skin care products. Your skin has a barrier that prevents many substances from penetrating very deeply. The tiny micro-openings caused by the procedure act as channels that allow topicals to penetrate your skin much more effectively.
