Why Microneedling Should be Part of Your Routine
If you are looking for an effective way to rejuvenate your skin and treat a host of skin concerns, microneedling might be just the treatment you are looking for. This procedure has taken Hollywood and the rest of the country by storm, as patients are tuning into the many benefits microneedling offers. Check out these reasons from New Visage why microneedling should become a regular part of your beauty routine.
Microneedling is a procedure that delivers dozens of needle punctures into the skin, stimulating the body’s own healing process and collagen production. While this approach to skin rejuvenation may not seem enticing on the surface, this procedure offers dramatic results with minimal discomfort and downtime. The procedure has been used for generations, but recent advances in the technology have made the treatment even safer and more effective. It is important to choose a provider that is experienced in microneedling to ensure the safest and most effective results.
At New Visage, we use one of the latest tools for our microneedling procedures. The Dermapen features a sterile head and spring-loaded tip that provides greater consistency and control during treatment. This device offers similar results on all skin types and tones, allowing us to perform this procedure on nearly any of our patients looking for a way to refresh the complexion and turn back the clock on their appearance.
Multiple Treatment Benefits
There are a number of cosmetic concerns microneedling can address:
- Fine lines and facial wrinkles
- Shallow scarring from surgery or acne
- Skin laxity and loss of elasticity
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
- Uneven texture and tone
Our providers at New Visage will assess your concerns and your aesthetic goals to determine whether microneedling is the best procedure choice for you.
Fast, Comfortable Treatment
Before your microneedling treatment, we will apply a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort during the procedure. The needles will be set to a precise penetration depth according to your specific needs. A topical serum can also be applied to the skin first, which will penetrate more deeply into the dermal layers for the greatest benefit. Most of these treatments take between 20 and 60 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the area you wish to treat.
Immediately following a microneedling treatment, your skin will be red and inflamed. However, these side effects usually subside within a couple of days and the results will start to become apparent. Most patients will experience full results within a few weeks after their procedure, as the skin fully heals and collagen production increases.
Some patients may find a series of treatment sessions in the beginning will help them to achieve the best possible results. Once those results are achieved, they typically last many months. The procedure can then be repeated periodically to maintain the results over an extended period of time.
Microneedling is becoming a go-to skin rejuvenation treatment for many of our patients today. To find out if this is the right procedure for you, contact New Visage at 252-808-2NEW.
