What Does Microneedling Treat?
Age reduces collagen levels in your skin, resulting in skin laxity, lines, and uneven texture. Time and environmental damage can also leave your skin looking dull and rough. Microneedling rejuvenates your skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
What is Microneedling?
Age and other factors can steal your skin’s natural firmness and glow. Microneedling uses tiny needles to create micro-channels in the skin. These micro-channels trigger your skin’s healing processes, including collagen production. As a result, skin looks smoother, brighter, and more even. Microneedling has been called “collagen induction therapy” for its powerful collagen-stimulating properties.
What Does Microneedling Treat?
Microneedling treats a wide range of skin concerns. You can have this treatment on your face or body. After microneedling treatment, you can see results including:
- Brighter, clearer skin
- Diminished acne scars
- Fewer fine lines
- Firmer skin
- Smaller pores
- Even skin tone
- Faded stretch marks
Your skin quickly repairs the micro-channels with healthy new skin cells, giving you a vibrant glow. Over the following weeks, collagen levels in your skin continue to increase, making it firmer and smoother.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling uses a handheld device that penetrates the skin with tiny needles. This triggers the surrounding cells to release healing and growth factors that work to repair these micro-injuries rapidly. The process also triggers deeper layers of the skin to produce more collagen, a vital protein for skin firmness and resilience. The new collagen can continue to form for weeks to months after treatment.
Types of Microneedling
Microneedling alone produces remarkable results, but you have the option to add even more benefits to this treatment. During your consultation, we will discuss your treatment goals and which type may work best for you.
Microneedling With PRP
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a rejuvenating treatment extracted from your own blood. When applied after microneedling, PRP speeds the healing process. It can also add a healthy glow to your results.
Microneedling With AquaGold®
The AquaGold® device allows your skincare expert to combine microneedling with beneficial serums and treatments. AquaGold® can deliver retinol, antioxidants, and other treatments deep into the skin for maximum benefits.
Is There Any Downtime With Microneedling?
Most people experience some redness after microneedling. You can still return to your usual activities after treatment. Avoid applying harsh treatments or abrasive scrubs to the skin for several days.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
Unlike many lasers, microneedling is safe for all skin types and tones. You may be a good candidate if you want to rejuvenate and restore your youthful skin. Treatment may have to wait if you have a skin infection or other condition in the treatment area.
