Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that offers results similar to that of a facial, except that the effects are much longer lasting. The procedure boosts your body’s own natural production of collagen which leads to smoother, more radiant-looking skin. Below are some of the benefits microneedling can offer.
A hand-held device is used to promote the production of collagen in the skin. This treatment is also commonly referred to as collagen induction. We naturally lose this substance with age. The device applied to the skin in this treatment sends fibroblasts to the treated area, which induces additional collagen production. Microneedling tricks your body into producing a healing response. The result is thicker, more radiant, and healthier skin.
Anyone in relatively good physical health who is looking to achieve younger-looking, more radiant, and smoother skin can benefit from microneedling. It’s also safe for all skin tones because it doesn’t use chemicals to treat the skin. Anyone with infected skin or cystic acne breakouts should wait until the issue has passed before having microneedling done.
What to Expect
The area to be treated will be cleansed well. Then a numbing cream is applied. Tiny pricks are made into the skin with the hand-held device. Your practitioner can customize the depth to which the needles will penetrate the skin, based on your personal needs. Regardless, there should be no pain. Afterward you can expect the skin to be a bit pink and sensitive. This will pass. You should set aside a couple hours for your session. The numbing cream will be applied about an hour prior to your treatment. Most microneedling procedures take only about 30 minutes. It’s likely you will need to return for three treatments in order to achieve desired results.
Microneedling is a safe, convenient, and relatively painless procedure. It diminishes the look of scars and stretch marks, along with improving skin’s overall texture and tone.
