A growing number of patients are seeking anti-aging solutions that do not involve surgery. Although cosmetic surgery is more effective than ever, it is not always the best choice for middle-aged individuals whose sagging skin and wrinkles are not yet severe enough to warrant such a drastic treatment. Non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments offer the advantage of little to no downtime and a lower risk of adverse events. Microneedling has helped thousands of people minimize skin problems like acne scars, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and more.
The Non-Surgical Advantage
If you are seeking non-surgical alternatives to traditional surgery, you are likely looking for a skin rejuvenation procedure that offers natural-looking results. With needling, we are working with your body’s own innate healing abilities, rather than injecting you with a foreign substance or making drastic changes to your facial contours. One of the things that patients appreciate most about microneedling is its ability to offer significant results that appear soft, natural, and plausible.
Microneedling is an excellent skin rejuvenation treatment involving the use of a device to form microscopic punctures in the surface of the skin to trigger the formation of new collagen. This minimally invasive technique does not require anesthesia or downtime. Most patients are able to resume their daily activities almost immediately after their needling treatment. Since no incisions are involved, the risk of adverse events is also very low.
Microneedling has been found to be safe and effective for the treatment of skin conditions like lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, rough skin, blemishes, age spots, and scars caused by acne, injury, or surgery.
We begin a microneedling treatment by applying a topical agent to your skin to numb it. After your skin has become completely numb, we move a small device covered in very small needles over your skin. Each pass of this device creates hundreds of microscopic injuries in the surface of the skin. This triggers a self-repair process, resulting in the formation of new collagen and elastin fibers to renew the surface of your skin and minimize signs of aging and sun damage.
Patients typically notice initial results after their treatment within a couple of weeks. However, optimal results are usually only obtained after two or three months. This is because we are working with your body to trigger a skin remodeling process, and this takes time.
