WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that improves the tone and texture of the skin. It is beneficial for those concerned with the early signs of aging, like wrinkles and fine lines, as well as textural and complexion issues, like acne scars or pigmentation. Microneedling stimulates natural healing processes of the body to create new collagen and elastin to provide smoother, more youthful appearing skin. For such a safe and simple procedure, it is very effective with minimal downtime.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling involves the use of tiny “microneedles” that gently create channels in the top layer of the skin. These new channels stimulate wound healing processes, leading to all kinds of benefits:
- Softening fine lines and wrinkles
- Reducing acne scars and minimizing pore size
- Reducing and evening out pigmentation differences
- Increasing firmness and elasticity
- Breaking down scar tissue
What to Expect with Microneedling
The procedure takes about 40 minutes for a full-face treatment to about 60 minutes for the full face, neck, and décolletage. PRP may be used during the procedure for enhanced results. Only after a few days, most patients notice their skin is tighter and brighter. On a short-term basis, the skin will appear more radiant and plumper. As the skin undergoes healing processes, collagen will be produced, providing firmer and smoother skin.
