Soften signs of aging with Microneedling
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a great, non-surgical treatment to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pore size, scars, tone and texture, and overall skin rejuvenation. It can be performed on all skin types and colors without risk of hyperpigmentation.
During your microneedling treatment session, controlled micro-injuries will be made in the skin to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. These micro-injuries trigger the release of growth factors that lead to remodeling of collagen and elastin.
Microneedling requires very little downtime and can be performed with a topical anesthetic in under an hour at Dr. Kevin Sadati’s office. It is minimally invasive and virtually painless. It is also a great way to maintain results after a facelift because it does not require additional surgery. Many patients combine a facelift and microneedling to stay youthful and rejuvenated. In addition, many patients opt for a microneedling procedure for other areas of the body, such as the neck, for a rejuvenated complexion anywhere on the body.
Following your microneedling treatment, you may experience mild redness and swelling, similar to a sunburn, for the first 24-48 hours. Be sure to wear sunscreen to protect the skin when spending time outdoors, and limit makeup application until skin is healed. AHAs, retinol, and acidic or active ingredients should also be avoided for two to three days after treatment for best healing.
You will be able to notice smoother and more radiant skin within one to two weeks. It may take a few months for full results to appear.
Microneedling treatments can be repeated every four to six weeks as needed to improve your complexion. The number of treatments needed will depend on your individual case. Microneedling can be performed on almost any area of the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, legs, and more.
If you are looking for a quick, easy way to rejuvenate your skin and treat common signs of aging, then microneedling may be the treatment for you! Contact our office today to schedule your initial consultation!
