Our daily lifestyle habits can sometimes make us look older than we really are, even if we feel that we’re doing everything we can to combat the aging process. Blemishes such as scars, sun damage, wrinkles, and large pores can creep up on us, and become difficult to treat even with quality skincare products and similar interventions.
Have you ever fantasized about a treatment that can address all these problems at the same time? If so, microneedling could be the answer you need to achieve youthful, glowing skin.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that stimulates your skin’s natural ability to produce more collagen and elastin. Treatment involves the use of a mechanical device called the SkinPen II, which vertically pierces your skin using a series of fine, small needles to induce collagen production.
Collagen and elastin are two building blocks that lend to healthy, youthful-looking skin due to their natural repairing abilities. The better your collagen and elastin production, the younger your skin will look, and the more effective it will be at preventing and combating signs of aging.
In addition to repairing wrinkles, blemishes, and other signs of aging, microneedling helps reduce the appearance of small capillary vessels in your skin, and improves areas of thin skin.
One of the top benefits to microneedling is that the procedure is 100 percent natural, and involves no surgery or products that contain ingredients that are harmful to your skin.
Microneedling produces little to no pain or discomfort. Prior to treatment, your plastic surgeon or licensed aesthetician applies a thin layer of serum to the treated area to help you relax, and to reduce any discomfort associated with the procedure. While microneedling isn’t painful, you may experience redness for between 12 and 48 hours following treatment.
Most patients see noticeable improvements in their skin after just one microneedling treatment, but results will depend largely on your skin health, and on the condition of your skin. The best way to determine the amount of microneedling treatments you’ll need is to make an appointment with an experienced plastic surgeon or aesthetician who can properly evaluate your skin.
The concept of microneedling has been around for over a decade, but was recently improved thanks to the invention of devices such as the SkinPen II. Previously, microneedling was performed using a roller-like device that lacked accuracy and failed to penetrate the skin deeply enough to spur the development of collagen and elastin. But today, patients can benefit from microneedling’s improved technology, which results in less pain, less downtime, and more noticeable, youthful-looking results.
