Microneedling treatments are becoming more and more popular for skin enhancement. This is because they are a safe and effective way to achieve–and maintain–beautiful, youthful skin. At SkinSmart Dermatology of Sarasota, FL, our estheticians are here to help patients determine if microneedling will provide the skin rejuvenation and transformation they desire with this nonsurgical treatment. However, when patients hear the word “needling,” they immediately are uneasy about undergoing treatment. Our estheticians educate patients on the process to help them better understand how it works and why it is beneficial for the skin.
How does microneedling work?
This is a minimally invasive procedure that uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. These injuries trigger the body’s natural healing response, which results in the production of new collagen and elastin. This can help improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks. With regular microneedling treatments, patients can maintain their skin’s appearance and slow the signs of aging, including the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
Some of the benefits of microneedling include:
- Improved appearance of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks
- Increased collagen and elastin production
- Smoother skin texture
- Reduced pore size
- Even skin tone and complexion
- Younger looking skin
Are there any risks associated with microneedling?
Microneedling is a safe and effective treatment that provides long-lasting results. There are minimal risks associated with microneedling, which include temporary skin redness and minor bleeding or bruising following the procedure.
Can microneedling be combined with other treatments for better outcomes?
Yes, microneedling can be combined with other treatments for better outcomes. For example, microneedling can be performed in conjunction with laser skin resurfacing or chemical peels to improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks. Our estheticians will work with patients to create a treatment plan that meets their individual needs.
