Microneedling can help rejuvenate your skin, treating several common skin conditions and improving appearance and texture. Wondering if this procedure can help you achieve youthful-looking skin? Find out more about the benefits of microneedling!
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling uses a precise microneedle pen to create microchannels in the skin that allow for products to access and absorb into the deepest layers of the skin. The device works to make sure that skin penetration is at a consistent depth so that minimal pain or bleeding occurs.
The needles create channels that are filled with new skin tissue and collagen as they heal. The skin naturally pulls itself tighter during the healing process, resulting in a reduction of inconsistencies. As the skin works to heal itself, you’ll notice an improvement in texture and appearance!
How Does the Procedure Work?
Microneedling is customizable for each patient’s needs and skin types, and the needle depth can be adapted to suit your needs. At Anders Dermatology, we will collaborate with you to ensure your goals are addressed.
You will see an immediate glow in your skin after just one session, but two to three follow-up treatments are recommended to continue skin improvement, as well as increase the microneedling benefits. A session usually lasts 30-60 minutes, fitting right into your busy day. There is little downtime and minimal post-procedure discomfort, allowing you to return to your normal day right after treatment.
Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling benefits range from a reduction of brown spots and acne scars to the treatment of hyperpigmentation and wrinkles. Microneedling can treat a variety of skin imperfections, evening out damaged tissue. As the treatment stimulates collagen production, new skin cell growth is triggered, resulting in the reduction of old blemishes.
The process was originally developed to treat acne scars but now can also work to treat the appearance of hyperpigmentation and fine lines. And the benefits can be seen in as little as a few weeks.
