We understand just how frustrating age-related blemishes can be, and that is why we are proud to offer our patients the non-surgical procedure known as microneedling. This amazing treatment eradicates unwanted imperfections by triggering your body’s natural healing response. Over the last few years, it has become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world, and it might be exactly what you have been looking for. If you are tired of hiding your age-related blemishes with expensive beauty products, then you should consider microneedling.
The Science Behind Microneedling
Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a unique procedure that triggers certain biological processes. Years ago, researchers discovered that they could manually stimulate the body’s natural healing process by creating micro-channels in the skin. When the micro-channels are created, the body responds by overproducing many different growth factors and proteins. Proteins such as collagen and elastin tone your skin and protect the outer layers from damage. The growth factors will create healthy new skin cells that can replace some of the damaged tissue in the epidermis.
There are quite a few reasons why many patients are now choosing microneedling over dermal fillers and other injectables. Products like BOTOX® and Dysport® can be effective, but some patients experience adverse side effects. Those products might also impact some of the nerves in your face, and that can lead to an unnatural look. With this treatment, we will simply enhance your beauty by unlocking your body’s healing response.
Creating a Treatment Plan
You might notice some improvements after your first appointment, but most of our patients need to schedule more than one session. Those sessions must be spread out so that your body has time to respond to the stimuli, and you will need to protect your skin after each treatment. If we are only going to be microneedling your face, then the appointment should only take a matter of minutes. During that time, you can relax while one of our professionals guides the handheld device over the problematic areas.
This treatment is minimally invasive, and that means you can combine it with many other procedures and products. You might benefit from a customized plan that includes microneedling, chemical peels, and laser hair removal. All of those treatments will rejuvenate your skin and take years off your appearance.
