After everything our skin goes through, from daily commutes and long work hours to late night socializing and poor dietary habits, we could all probably use a little pick-me-up. Fortunately, microneedling can smooth out the imperfects, plump up the volume, and get your skin glowing again in no time.
The Benefits of Microneedling
Sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that can address a wide range of common skin concerns, including:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Enlarged pores
- Hyperpigmentation and sun spots
- Acne, surgical, and post-traumatic scars
- Dull, rough, or uneven tone and texture
- Lax skin
- Stretch marks
However, the benefits don’t stop there. One of the things our skin care patients love about microneedling is that treatments can be scheduled whenever they have an hour to spare. That’s all it takes to reap all of the rejuvenating rewards of this amazing procedure.
There’s also little to no downtime following treatment. We know people’s schedules are hectic, so don’t worry. You can get a quick skin refresher that can seamlessly fit into your busy life.
Microneedling is a Pain-Free Experience
Microneedling treatments are just about as comfortable as they can get. To ensure that your rejuvenation experience is a pleasant one, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the selected area prior to your session. After the anesthetic agent sets in, you’ll barely even feel the tiny needles working their magic to refresh and revitalize your outer layer.
If you don’t have time to recover from a chemical peel or laser treatment, microneedling is definitely your best bet for healthier, glowing skin.
The Right Candidates for Microneedling
The beauty of microneedling is that almost anyone can benefit from the restorative effects that it provides. This procedure is suitable for any skin type—fair or dark, thick or thin. The right candidates are in good health and free from any infections, rashes, or fever. In those cases, the needles could have the opposite effect and worsen existing skin maladies.
Where Does Microneedling Work?
The most requested area that our microneedling patients choose to target is the face. But this treatment is so versatile that it can be used on nearly any part of the body. That means most anywhere that can use a non-surgical pick-me-up can benefit from microneedling, including all of the areas exposed by that hot new holiday number, like the neck, decolletage, and hands.
Get the Most Out of Your Microneedling Treatment
On its own, microneedling is an extremely effective treatment that can address a variety of skin concerns. But you can enhance your results with the addition of targeted serums. PRP, which stands for platelet-rich plasma, packs a revitalizing punch of healing factors that stimulate tissue regeneration.
Or you can opt for replenishing vitamin C to give your skin an even greater boost. You’ll get more out of your personal skin care products too, as they will go on more evenly and be better-absorbed following microneedling treatments.
