What does microneedling do to your face?
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that is performed on the face to give it a smoother and firmer appearance.
It works by making micro pricks on the surface of the skin with very fine needles that are rolled over the skin with a derma roller.
The microscopic wounds created by the needles stimulate the production of collagen and elastin deep below the surface of the skin. This process is used to naturally heal the skin which in turn revitalizes the face, making it look younger and more refreshed.
Microneedling can be used for multiple different purposes, such as acne, oversized pores, patches or dark spots on the skin, scars, sun damage, stretch marks and wrinkles, and fine lines.
The procedure doesn’t apply any type of heat to the skin’s surface, unlike laser therapy, so it can be a better treatment for people who have darker skin tones. Unlike laser treatments, microneedling doesn’t change the skin’s pigmentation.
What are some benefits of microneedling?
Microneedling is one of many cosmetic procedures that can be performed on the face or other parts of the body to improve the appearance of the skin.
People seek out cosmetic treatments to improve the appearance of their skin for several different reasons, such as minimizing the appearance of scars, acne, stretch marks, sun damage, and dark skin spots, as well as wrinkles and fine lines.
Microneedling has many benefits to improving the skin’s appearance over other cosmetic treatment options.
Patients may choose microneedling due to its quick procedure time, minimal downtime, and natural results. There are minimal side effects from microneedling, such as bleeding, bruising, peeling, and infection.
These effects will disappear within a couple of days following the treatment.
Microneedling treatments are less expensive than other treatments such as laser therapy and don’t run the risk of causing discoloration with the skin’s pigmentation.
The skin is rejuvenated through the natural production of collagen and elastin caused by the pricking of the skin from the microneedles, making it a relatively safe procedure.
How long does it take to see the benefits of microneedling?
The natural process of healing takes time, so the effects of microneedling won’t be seen immediately following the procedure.
Patients can anticipate seeing the results typically within a few weeks after their microneedling procedure, once the surface of the skin has healed and the tissues have rejuvenated.
Following their microneedling treatment, patients may experience some redness, bruising, bleeding, and peeling that will fade on its own after a few days once the skin starts its healing process.
As the collagen and elastin are stimulated below the skin’s surface, they work to heal the small wounds created in the skin’s surface from the application of the microneedles.
The production of collagen and elastin not only heal the skin, but also restore its smooth, firm, and youthful appearance.
The production of these 2 elements will naturally decline as people age, with microneedling being a relatively safe way to re-invigorate it to its previous production levels.
How long do the benefits of microneedling last?
Microneedling is a relatively safe option for the treatment of many skin conditions to improve the appearance of the skin.
However, like many other treatments, results are not permanent and will need to be repeated on a regular basis in order to maintain the desired results.
Patients will need to work with their practitioner to determine the best treatment plan for their unique needs, which will provide a recommendation on the frequency of treatments.
As the skin is constantly growing and rejuvenating itself as part of the body’s natural processes, treatments will need to be done on a frequent enough basis to keep the outer layer looking firm, fresh, smooth, and youthful.
The team at New Look Med Spa is experienced in the use of microneedling to treat a variety of skin imperfections and will let you know how often you will need to come back.
Typically, microneedling will need to be repeated every four to six weeks, depending on the area of the body being treated, how severe the condition is, and how quickly your results fade.
