The term microneedling may strike fear into the heart of some individuals, curiosity in others and bring a knowing smile to another group altogether. If you have an extreme fear or dislike of needles or injections, hold your opinion about the procedure until you read this post. For the curious person, you are about to have some of your questions answered. And if you have that knowing smile, share your experience with others. Microneedling works wonders on your skin.
Scary? Not Scary
It sounds scary – a bundle of tiny needles puncturing your skin, more like torture than a beauty treatment. However, when these tiny needles prick that first layer of skin, it begins a process that leads to smoother, glowing and healthier-looking skin. Microneedling boosts collagen production, which rejuvenates your skin.
Collagen is one of the important components that gives your skin its firmness and strength. When collagen is increased in skin that is losing volume, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines diminishes. This process can be used to treat scarring, such as that from bad acne and large pores.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure. It generates new collagen in the skin, which changes the texture and tone of the skin to be smoother and firmer. This is generally a safe procedure for most individuals. Those who use certain acne medications may be advised not to undergo microneedling. It is also not advised for women who are pregnant.
This procedure does not require downtime, although you should wait a day before using your regular skin care products. You can expect redness and a little irritation in the treated areas for a few days following the procedure.
Microneedling takes up to two hours from start to finish. More than one session is needed to achieve the best results. Over-the-counter microneedling kits do not give the superior results you will receive from a professional.
You can have smoother, brighter skin and reduce the lines and wrinkles of aging with microneedling. Call Dr. Cerrati today to schedule your consultation appointment to learn more about this safe and effective method of skin care treatment.
