As you age, your facial skin can begin to look dull and worn. Along with the decreased production of collagen and other molecules that help make the skin look healthy and toned, the aesthetic changes of your face can begin to impact your confidence and self-image.
There are many procedures, from non-invasive dermal treatments to cosmetic surgeries, to help regain and keep that youthful and toned appearance you want. Many people want to improve the aesthetics of their face but do not want the risks of adverse reactions to injectable treatments, nor the restrictions and recovery following surgery.
One non-invasive dermal treatment that has been proven successful at regaining lost tone on facial skin is microneedling. Although tiny needles are used during the treatment, they do not puncture below the skin’s surface, and there are no injections or chemicals used.
Instead, the microneedling device used at The MedSpa in Austin, TX, uses a series of tiny needles to make small channels on the outermost layer of skin. This triggers your body to heal from the perceived injury caused by the device. The result is fresh, healthy, and toned skin.
Each microneedling treatment takes no more than 30 minutes. There will likely be redness and some tenderness. However, a soothing ointment will help alleviate discomfort after the procedure until the redness subsides after the first week.
Since there are no injections or surgical incisions, there are minimal risks associated with microneedling treatments. However, since the microneedling does break the top layer of skin, it is essential to keep the treated area clean during recovery to prevent infections.
In some cases, people with sensitive skin may experience more discomfort than others. The ointment applied after the treatment, as well as ice or cold compresses, can help.
