Microneedling is an amazing wrinkle reduction treatment that can help with skin problems like scars, wrinkles, blemishes, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation. The treatment works by stimulating your body’s own natural production of collagen, a substance that gives strength and structure to your skin. Since collagen production declines with age, boosting it has an amazing anti-aging effect.
How Is a Microneedling Treatment Performed?
At each treatment your facial area will be numbed, and our practitioner will use our microneedling pen to create hundreds of tiny channel wounds in the skin, stimulating new collagen for skin repair. The body responds to the creation of the tiny micro-openings in the skin by accelerating the production of new tissue as well as collagen and elastin. Performed repeatedly over a set period of time, micro-needling can significantly improve the skin tone and texture.
How Long Before I Notice Results?
Since microneedling works with your body’s own healing abilities, patience will be needed. Skin remodeling is a process, but you should notice some initial results within a couple of weeks after your treatment. Additional results will gradually build over the course of the following weeks and months.
We typically recommend a series of treatment as each treatment builds upon the results of previous ones. You will, however, need to wait some time between each needling session so that your skin has time to restore and rejuvenate itself completely. Our educated staff can provide you with a comprehensive treatment plan so you will know exactly what to expect.
Microneedling works extremely well when combined with other procedures. For example, Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy works very well in conjunction with needling treatments. The microscopic punctures created by the treatment process allow the PRP product to better penetrate the skin, while PRP and its growth factors improve the results of microneedling.
