WHAT TO EXPECT
HOW IT WORKS
Microneedling is an advanced minimally invasive treatment also known as Collagen Induction Therapy. This treatment is performed using a specialized Microneedling device to gently create micro-perforations of skin tissue causing the body to activate increased production of natural collagen, a substance that naturally nourishes and strengthens skin tissue. Over the next few weeks, your skin’s own activated collagen continues to gradually improve volume, firmness, and elasticity in the skin, while smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines, creating a more even skin tone, and imparting a more youthful appearance to the entire region.
Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling treatments are rapidly gaining in popularity among both patients and doctors, because they provide a minimally invasive method of triggering a significant increase in the body’s natural collagen production, while protecting the outermost layer of skin and leaving it intact. Microneedling is a quick, effective, and inexpensive treatment that is safe, minimally invasive, and produces immediately visible results with added improvements continuing for several weeks after treatment.
Microneedling Treats a Variety of Conditions
Microneedling is a simple treatment that has been approved as safe and effective for treating the following list of skin conditions:
- Acneic skin
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Alopecia (Hair Loss)
- Discoloration, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone
- Enlarged pores
- Sagging skin
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
- Wrinkles, creases, and fine lines
The Microneedling Procedure
Microneedling is not a painful procedure, but it may produce an irritating “prickly” sensation for the duration of treatment. Luckily, the treatment usually takes under an hour to perform. Following treatment, you may notice temporary redness, soreness, and tenderness in the skin lasting for one or two hours, and this may sting similarly to the sensation of sunburn.
Following the procedure, you will have to carefully observe post-treatment instructions for optimal results. Men must put off shaving facial hair for several days until the skin heals completely after treatment. Although results may be immediately noticeable, increased improvement in the skin’s health and appearance will continue over the next several weeks, as new collagen production hydrates and nourishes thirsty skin cells, producing radiant, healthy new skin.
You may combine microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma for even better result in a Vampire Facial Procedure.
