Patients often seek the advice of plastic surgeons and dermatologists to slow the aging process and improve their skin.
However, many of these individuals would like to look and feel younger without surgery or considerable downtime.
Fortunately, microneedling is a non-invasive treatment that provides excellent results without significant risks, discomfort, or recovery.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is an in-office procedure that uses the body’s own healing abilities to improve skin tone and texture.
The treatment consists of a hand-held device that uses small needles to puncture the epidermal layer of the skin. These wounds then stimulate collagen and elastin which help to replace damaged skin cells with healthy new cells.
Additionally, topical products and serums are better absorbed by the skin as a result of microneedling.
Five reasons to choose microneedling over other treatments:
1. Zero Downtime
Patients are able to resume normal activities immediately after a microneedling treatment.
2. Natural and Long-Lasting Results
Most dermal injections use external substances to temporarily mask the skin’s imperfections. Microneedling remodels the skin by initiating a natural wound healing effect with results lasting up to one year.
3. Minimal Risks
Patients that undergo microneedling are not at risk for hyperpigmentation because the procedure is purely mechanical. However, lasers that use heat to improve tone and texture may cause post-treatment skin darkening.
4. Quick Recovery Period
Redness and swelling after microneedling are limited to a couple of days. In comparison, injections and lasers may require several weeks to fully recover.
5. Treatment Versatility and Positive Results
Microneedling is an effective and gentle procedure. It benefits all skin types and can be used on the face, neck, chest, and various parts of the body.
