Microneedling treatment is a skin rejuvenation method used to stimulate collagen production. It improves skin tone and texture, addresses fine lines and wrinkles, decreases acne scars, and improves laxity. This treatment creates micro-injuries to the skin’s surface to stimulate the natural healing process of your body to produce new cells and collagen. Microneedling (Scar Revision) uses microneedling devices (aka pens) to mechanically break fibrils or elastin that contracted and formed depression scars or static rhytids. Microneedling is indicated for patient conditions such as acne scars, cellulite (Grade III), static rhytids, and overall facial and body part skin rejuvenation. Typical results per treatment
When you arrive at our office on the day of your treatment, your provider will apply a numbing cream to the targeted area. The device is applied to the area using a particular pattern to ensure even application. Depending on the treatment area size, it can take up to thirty minutes to complete. We may apply a serum to your skin to rejuvenate and protect it. The microchannels created cause skincare products to seep within the treated area for enhanced results. As the micro-injuries are repaired during treatment, your skin will become smoother, firmer, and more even. Your results continue to improve for up to three months, as this is how long it takes for collagen remodeling to occur. We recommend several treatments for optimal results.
The safe protocols we use throughout your treatment make it efficient for patients of all ages. This versatile treatment heals scars, treats dark spots, and gives you a glowing complexion. It can be performed on every skin tone.
The duration of microneedling results varies, but improvements can be seen after the first session. For optimal and longer-lasting effects, a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart is often recommended.
After microneedling, mild redness and swelling are common, resembling a sunburn, which typically subsides within a day or two. Over the following weeks, you may notice improved skin texture and a reduction in fine lines and scars.
Yes, microneedling induces collagen production. The tiny micro-injuries created during the procedure stimulate the skin’s natural healing process, leading to increased collagen and elastin production, which contributes to improved skin texture and firmness.
The number of microneedling sessions for collagen induction varies based on individual skin concerns and goals. While some notice improvements after one session, a series of treatments, typically ranging from three to six sessions, spaced several weeks apart, is often recommended for optimal results in collagen stimulation and skin rejuvenation.
