Keeping up with a routine to maintain younger-looking, healthy skin can be a lot of work. From the products you use to how you cleanse your face, there are several factors that can affect the appearance of your skin. But unfortunately, no matter how religiously you stick to your skin care routine, natural effects such as aging can get in the way.
If this sounds like something you’re experiencing, don’t worry—we’ll share how microneedling can reset your skin and bring back a healthy, rejuvenated appearance!
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive rejuvenation procedure that can reverse sun damage, hyperpigmentation, scars, wrinkles and other skin imperfections. In addition to clearing your skin of these concerns, microneedling treatments also trigger collagen production, further enhancing your appearance and preventing effects of aging over time.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling consists of quickly and safely puncturing the skin with tiny needles to create “micro injuries.” Once these small “injuries” have been created, your skin naturally works to repair itself, therefore correcting a number of skin imperfections such as scars and wrinkles. As previously mentioned, this also triggers new collagen growth—further improving the quality of your skin by promoting an even skin tone and healthy texture.
Our staff at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Associates uses SkinPen for microneedling treatments—a medical grade and FDA-approved skin rejuvenation device.
What Can I Expect from a SkinPen Treatment?
During your microneedling session, a topical numbing agent may be applied—however, most patients say they only feel a slight vibration during their procedure!
You may see improvement in your skin after one session, but microneedling typically requires a few treatments to see your desired results. But the good news is, each procedure only lasts around 30 minutes, and there is little to no downtime required afterwards.
Specific directions will be provided in terms of number of treatments and post-procedure care. If you have any questions or concerns, be sure to address them during your consultation.
