The older we grow, skin irregularities like wrinkles or scarring of the skin become more detectable. While these skin imperfections will inevitably become more noticeable, they don’t have to be a permanent fixture of your look. MedSpa 22 offers microneedling to help erase the appearance of scars and wrinkles as well as bring out youthful skin!
What is microneedling?
Using a handpiece with multiple fine needles at the tip, microneedling is a non-surgical and gentle treatment that can help rejuvenate your skin. Our medical professionals carefully pass the needles over the surface of your skin, creating tiny microchannels. While these microchannels are too small to create scars or give patients discomfort, they can help stimulate the skin’s natural healing process and influence the production of collagen (the main structural protein found in skin) and elastin (the main protein of elastic connective tissue). As collagen and elastin are replenished, patients can see exciting results of smoother, luminous skin!
Why choose microneedling?
- Microneedling is a non-surgical and quick solution for younger-looking skin
- Microneedling has a significantly lower risk of side effects than certain laser treatments
- Microneedling is a gentle approach to help correct the appearance of age lines, stretch marks, acne scars, and certain pigmentation from sun exposure
- Microneedling does not require any downtime for recovery unlike some laser treatments
What can I expect from microneedling?
Typically, a microneedling treatment can take as quick as 15 minutes. However, different parts of the body may take longer to treat than others. The length of the procedure is also based on the patient’s aesthetic goals. Some patients may experience some minor inflammation or redness, but these side effects usually go away shortly after the procedure. Patients can see significant results after a single microneedling treatment, however, we recommend multiple treatments as part of a treatment plan for the best possible results of younger-looking skin.
