Microneedling is a noninvasive procedure that uses tiny needles to create small punctures in the top layers of your skin. These puncture holes cause slight injuries to the skin that triggers the body’s healing process. As the skin repairs itself, new collagen-rich tissue is produced, resulting in firmer, younger appearing skin. Microneedling can be used to address many common concerns, including:
Microneedling procedures are most commonly performed on the face but are also effective at rejuvenating skin all over the body. The increase in collagen plumps up your skin and reduces the appearance of scars and fine lines. Microneedling also makes it easier for your skin to absorb topical products.
To ensure the safety and effectiveness of your treatment, all microneedling procedures at Image Revolution Health and Wellness are performed by an experienced physician. To begin the procedure, your doctor applies a topical numbing cream to control any discomfort. They then glide a pen-like microneedling tool across your skin. The microneedling tool creates tiny puncture holes that you likely won’t be able to see.
After using the microneedling tool, your doctor applies a topical treatment to protect the skin and help you heal. Microneedling is a quick and simple procedure that can be completed in as little as two hours.
After the procedure, it’s normal to experience some redness and sensitivity over the next few days. Microneedling is a noninvasive procedure, so recovery time is minimal.
As you recover, it’s important to keep the skin clean and moisturized. You should also avoid sun exposure and sweating.
Multiple treatments are required to achieve effective results. Depending on the condition of your skin and your desired outcome, you could need up to six treatments.
During your consultation, your doctor works with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. With the right treatment plan, microneedling offers smoother, youthful, healthier appearing skin.
