One of today’s most highly requested treatments, microneedling improves skin’s firmness while reducing the appearance of fine lines and acne scars, all with minimal downtime. Microneedling uses a minimally invasive pen-shaped device studded with several very fine needles, which is passed over the treatment area(s). The needles break down old tissue, causing deliberate minor injury to the skin’s surface thereby stimulating the healing process. Over time, new collagen is produced and the result is younger, healthier, more beautiful looking skin.
Microneedling can be used alone or with serums that are infused deeply into the skin. Popular serums include hyaluronic acid to add moisture and reduce wrinkles, vitamin C to rejuvenate skin, skin lighteners to reduce hyperpigmentation and various acne-fighting ingredients that destroy bacteria. Microneedling can also be used in conjunction with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) for exceptional results. Patients love how their skin looks and feels, and they’re especially happy they don’t have to hide for days or weeks after microneedling treatments. In most cases, the skin is pink and puffy for 24-48 hours after treatment, and there may be minimal pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. A few days after treatment, skin is noticeably smoother and more radiant, and fully appreciable results typically occur a few months later.
Microneedling is in high demand because results are noticeable and downtime is minimal. Other microneedling benefits include:
- Cost effectiveness (less expensive than other resurfacing procedures)
- Improved efficacy of topical agents used in conjunction with microneedling
- Pore size reduction
- Scar reduction including acne scars
- Improved appearance of stretch marks
- Wrinkle reduction
- Suitable for most skin types
