Microneedling therapy is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure that helps rejuvenate the skin, Improving tone and texture as well as acne scarring. It can improve wrinkles, fine lines, rough skin texture, large pore size, aging and sun damaged skin as well as acne scars and stretch marks.
Microneedling, otherwise known as collagen induction therapy, uses tiny needles that pierce and injure the upper layers of the skin. The skin then responds to these injuries and produces more collagen. The depth of penetration for these needles can be adjusted by the treating physician depending on the areas being targeted. It can also be combined with PRP, platelet rich plasma, and serums for a greater effect.
Multiple treatment sessions over time are needed for the best results. You can expect a sunburn like sensation on the skin directly after treatment that will usually subside within the first 24 hours, followed by some dryness and minor peeling of the skin lasting up to one week. Your physician will recommend an at home maintenance regimen to complement the procedure.
Please schedule a cosmetic consult with one of our physicians if interested in microneedling and they can determine if this procedure is right for you.
