Your skin produces less collagen as you get older, a problem that contributes to wrinkles because collagen is essential for strength and resilience. Microneedling rejuvenates your skin by restoring collagen.
Using fine needles to gently puncture the skin, microneedling creates small, controlled wounds that trigger a boost in collagen production.
As old skin at the surface is replaced with collagen-rich cells, you’ll notice a gradual transformation in your skin.
Microneedling safely and effectively improves skin problems such as:
Many clients request microneedling to improve the appearance of their face, neck, arms, and hands. However, your provider at Medical Aesthetics, Ltd., can rejuvenate skin anywhere on your body because they perform microneedling using the SkinPen®.
After evaluating your skin and talking with you about the results you want to achieve, your provider at Medical Aesthetics, Ltd., begins your SkinPen procedure by cleansing your skin and applying a topical anesthetic. The treatment takes about one hour.
While there can be certain areas of the face and body that generate more discomfort than others, micro-needling is generally well-tolerated and your providers aim to ensure your comfort.
Most patients experience some redness and tenderness after a microneedling procedure. Healing proceeds at a different pace for each person but most find their side effects disappear within one week. You receive detailed instructions for skin care after your procedure to help reduce swelling and support healing.
It takes time for new collagen and elastin to replace old skin at the surface, so your overall results appear gradually. It is highly recommended you get three treatments spaced one month apart for the best results. Your provider at Medical Aesthetics, Ltd., talks with you about when to expect results.
