REDUCE WRINKLES AND IMPROVE TEXTURE AND TONE WITH MICRONEEDLING Don’t let the name scare you! Microneedling is a highly controlled treatment that is fast, comfortable and very effective! Microneedling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), it is a rediscovered innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars, and overall improvement of the skin’s texture, tone, and color. During the minimally invasive procedure, tiny needles are used to stimulate your body’s healing mechanisms to reverse and prevent the signs of aging. The skin’s own repair process kicks in to create healthier glowing skin. Our medically-supervised team of expert providers offer microneedling in conjunction with platelet-rich plasma therapy for dramatic results. Call our office or use the online booking agent below to make an appointment to find out if microneedling is the right treatment for your anti-aging goals.
Microneedling Q & A
What is microneedling?
During a microneedling session, the technician uses a device with super-fine needles to create tiny punctures in the top layer of your skin. This triggers a wound response in your body, so you create new collagen and elastin: two compounds that contribute to firm, healthy-looking skin.
The new collagen and elastin thickens your skin and minimizes the appearance of lines while improving skin tone and diminishing pigmentation.
Microneedling is appropriate for a variety of skin tones and makes it easier for products, including moisturizers and anti-aging creams, to be absorbed deeply into your skin.
Does microneedling hurt?
Most patients tolerate microneedling well. It’s not a procedure that you’d choose for relaxation, but applying a topical numbing cream beforehand eases discomfort. Following treatment, your skin will feel slightly sunburned and have a pinkish hue. It takes 24-72 hours for your skin to recover completely.
After treatment, you’ll be advised to use sunblock and you must stay out of the direct sun for two weeks. You should also avoid aggressive exfoliation for at least one week after treatment.
How long before I see results from microneedling?
While you begin seeing results on the day after treatment, remember that collagen and elastin production takes time.
You’ll notice optimal results four to eight weeks following treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
It really depends on your skin, but you will definitely see results after just one treatment. Most patients however require 2-3 treatments for optimal results and long-term benefits spaced 30 days apart.
What areas can I treat?
Microneedling treatment is appropriate for all parts of the body; face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. Typically, the procedure takes 40-50 minutes. Deeper wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks may require 6-8 sessions. Results can be seen right away; reducing wrinkles, improving texture, tone and overall softer younger-looking skin.
