Our experienced med spa team understands the frustration that our clients feel when they see fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging when they look in the mirror. For quite some time now, adults interested in correcting their signs of aging have turned to injectables like BOTOX and dermal fillers. We’re all about that, if it gets the results that are desired. At the same time, we recognize that there is a need for more. Just like we transitioned from plastic surgery as a primary approach to aging to more conservative injectables, we can also transition even more. Microneedling treatments can be an ideal solution for the person who has had an adverse reaction to BOTOX or other neuromodulators. It may be the preferred approach to aging for those who want to restore more youthful skin from the inside out, too.
Microneedling is known as a collagen induction therapy treatment. The age-old procedure has taken a modern twist through automation. Where microneedling used to involve the use of a manual tool, which then evolved into the use of a dermal roller (which could tear the skin and create tiny scars), it is now done with an automated device. As the device applicator “stamps” the skin, tiny channels are created. These close almost immediately and do not cause significant side effects. What they do cause is a collagen-remodeling process. Whenever the skin is injured, the body heals through collagen production. By creating micro injuries in a controlled manner, the microneedling provider can stimulate tissue regeneration in a target area, such as the face, neck, or décolletage. Essentially, every microneedling session that a person has unlocks their natural healing response.
The Microneedling Treatment Plan
Clients may notice some degree of improvement in their skin after their first microneedling treatment. Most need more than one treatment to see a dramatic change in the tone, texture, and firmness of the tissue in the treatment area. Microneedling sessions are scheduled out across several weeks. This allows the body to complete its natural response to the micro injuries. Each session may take less than an hour, provided only one area is treated, such as the face or neck. It is possible to combine areas, too, to achieve more comprehensive tissue rejuvenation. Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that may be performed after the skin has been slightly numbed with a topical cream. It is conservative enough to be combined with other treatments that can enhance the aesthetic outcome of a broader treatment plan.
Is Microneeding Right for Me?
We feel strongly that every person deserves to have vibrant, healthy skin. Our center is devoted to offering personalized services using proven technologies and techniques like microneedling. Most people with relatively healthy skin and realistic expectations for what microneedling can accomplish are good candidates for this treatment. It is necessary to commit to consistent skin care in between sessions so that the skin is not harmed by excessive sun exposure or harsh chemical products that could slow or degrade the final outcome.
