Is the aging process showing on your skin? Have frustrating stretch marks? Or is it relief from acne scarring that you’re seeking? If any or all of these strike a nerve, consider microneedling. It can revitalize your skin without the need for surgery or a lot of recovery time. Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is an excellent alternative for those who might prefer to avoid laser treatments or chemical peels.
What Happens to Aging Skin?
Over time your body’s ability to generate essential elements of healthy-looking skin, collagen and elastin, diminishes. Collagen stimulation by microneedling helps to revitalize the skin and improve its appearance.
What Does Microneedling Help?Regular microneedling treatments at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center can work wonders to restore and rejuvenate many common skin conditions, including:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Enlarged pores
- Hyperpigmentation and sun spots
- Acne, surgical, or post-traumatic scars
- Dull, or uneven tone and texture
- Stretch marks
Are Microneedling Treatments Painful?
Microneedling is typically well-tolerated by our patients. An anesthetic cream is applied to the skin before starting the procedure for maximal comfort.
What Can I Expect After Microneedling Treatments?
Mild redness and swelling are expected after microneedling, and usually subside within a couple of days. Make-up can be applied after 24 hours. After a series of treatments the skin is healthier and more vibrant. The skin’s tone and texture is improved and feels tighter. It’s important to keep the skin protected from the sun by always applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen and wearing a wide-brimmed hat.
