It’s here! We are now offering microneedling, and our patients are loving it!
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling, which is sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy or CIT, is an amazing skin-rejuvenation procedure that is minimally-invasive, helps reduce the signs of aging, and improves the appearance of scars. Microscopic needles are used to create equally microscopic “puncture wounds” in the skin, tricking your body into thinking it’s been “wounded.” Your body’s natural healing processes will then begin to manufacture collagen to repair those punctures. The results are impressive: thicker, smoother, younger-looking, more radiant skin! Microneedling can be done anywhere on your body where you may wish to have thicker skin or minimal scarring.
HOW IS MICRONEEDLING DONE?
First, a numbing cream is applied to your skin. A growth factor serum is then applied all over the area. The serum is needled in, followed by another layer of serum. Finally, a soothing mask is applied to complete the treatment.
WHO SHOULD HAVE THE MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT?
Anyone who is looking for thicker, smoother skin would be a great candidate! Those who have thin skin, wrinkles or fine lines, bumps on their skin, acne scars, scarring from injuries, or stretch marks, or those who would like to reduce pore size, will benefit greatly from this procedure. Because there is no heat involved, microneedling is safe for all skin types and all skin colors. Some of our patients are even using it as a preemptive strike against the aging process.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME FROM MICRONEEDLING?
None! Because of the effects of the numbing cream, you will experience little to no pain during the treatment. Afterwards, your skin will be a little pink, but that will disappear within a day. Ideally, you would want to avoid applying makeup for the rest of the day, but may apply it that evening if you’ve planned a night out. We recommend the application of growth factor serum (available for purchase in our office) that night, the next morning, and each following night, for as long as the serum supply lasts.
