5 Things You Should Know About Microneedling

Dec 19, 2017 | Microneedling, Skin Care

Although the term itself may not sound very enticing, microneedling is one of the best ways to stimulate collagen production in the skin, and it can help to treat fine lines and wrinkles, and it can also improve the overall health of your skin.

If you are considering this treatment, you should know these five things about microneedling:

  1. Microneedling rejuvenates the skin—Before you receive this treatment, it is important that you know what it does for your skin. It can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, and scarring. The procedure entails a series of microscopic channels created by a dermal pen, which causes your body to repair itself, making your skin thicker, plumper, and more youthful.
  2. Apply creams before treatment—We recommend that four weeks before treatment, you start to prep your skin. scottsdale-microneedlingVitamin A and C creams may be best for your skin, as they can stimulate collagen production along with the microneedling treatment itself.
  3. Results are fast but not immediate—Typically, results take anywhere from four to eight weeks to be visible. Also, a single microneedling treatment can produce great results, but repeating the treatment between two and five times with two or three months between treatments can dramatically improve results.
  4. Recovery is quick, but you may need to recover for a day or two—Because the process does involve needles and requires your body to heal, most people take about 24 hours or up to a few days to fully recover. Recovery also depends on the length of the needles used.
  5. Each session can be customized to your needs—An esthetician at North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic will help you decide what is right for your skin, and you should make sure to bring up any concerns at this time.
