There’s no lack of products out there designed to help you reveal your most beautiful and youthful skin. From hydrating serums to anti-aging retinol, there are plenty of options for tackling your biggest complexion woes. But a lot of these products take time to work – and not all of them deliver on their promises.
That’s precisely why microneedling has become such a popular non-surgical treatment option!
Microneedling involves using a small handheld device to deliver micro-wounds via needle-tip to the desired treatment area. This process might sound painful, but it actually just feels like sandpaper being gently moved across your skin. Once these micro-wounds are created, it triggers the body’s healing process, which prompts an increase in collagen and elastin production. The end result is younger, more refreshed-looking skin!
Here are a few more benefits of microneedling:
- It’s a non-surgical procedure, so you don’t have to worry about going under the knife.
- There’s no recovery time associated with the process, though immediately after the treatment you will experience redness.
- Results can last for a long time.
- Microneedling can be combined with a variety of other treatments to enhance results.
Microneedling is an excellent solution for patients who are suffering from acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and overall skin tone and texture.
The number of treatments you might need will largely depend on your individual needs. Most clients need about 3 sessions (spaced 4 weeks apart). Results can be seen within 3 to 6 months after the last microneedling session.
