Looks What’s New in The Medspa!
What is microneedling therapy? It is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. Through the process, there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
How Does It Work?
The idea behind microneedling is like that of many other non-surgical skin-tightening procedures in that it aims to create a controlled injury underneath the skin's surface, thereby inducing the body to respond by producing more collagen in the treated area. The skin plumps and thickens in response to the stimulus, reducing the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and fine lines.
Wouldn't That Be Painful?
This treatment can be mildly uncomfortable, but with the use of topical numbing cream increases the patients comfort. Keep in mind that multiple treatments will be necessary. The number of needling sessions depends on the individual skin condition. Three or four treatments may be recommended for mild to moderate acne scarring, whereas deeper scars and stretch marks may require upward of five treatments.
What Do I Look Like After?
Immediately after the treatment, patients take on a sunburn appearance. This can last 24-48hrs after. It is remarkable how quickly you heal from the process. Expect to be out of your comfort zone for the 24-36 hours. Make up can be applied by day 2 or 3.
