What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure in which your practitioner uses a small pen-like device to create tiny microtears in your skin using very fine needles. Doing so enhances your body’s natural ability to heal itself and increase collagen and elastin production. Microneedling produces revitalized, younger-looking skin without surgery or downtime. It’s safe and effective for almost all skin types.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
Microneedling offers you numerous cosmetic benefits. Examples include:
- Fewer fine lines and wrinkles
- Improved skin texture
- Diminished hyperpigmentation
- Less acne scarring
- Fewer stretch marks
- Improvements in rosacea
- Tighter skin
- Skin rejuvenation
After your skin heals from the effects of microneedling, it appears smoother and younger with fewer imperfections. You’ll enjoy the boost of confidence you can achieve with microneedling.
What should I expect during treatment?
Prior to your microneedling procedure, your Esperanza Hope Primary Care specialist reviews your medical history and examines your skin to make sure you’re a good candidate for the procedure. They numb your skin to enhance comfort during treatment and apply an electric pen-like microneedling device to your skin to create tiny needle wounds.
Your provider may also apply platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to your skin to further enhance healing. They obtain PRP by taking a sample of your blood, spinning in a centrifuge to isolate a concentrated source of platelets, and applying it to your skin during microneedling. The length of time microneedling results last depends on the areas treated.
What happens after microneedling?
In response to microneedling treatment, your skin creates new collagen and elastin, becomes plump, and thickens over several weeks. Immediately after the procedure, you will experience some swelling and redness, but this soon subsides over the next few days.
There’s no downtime after microneedling, so you can resume your normal routine right away and wear mineral makeup the day after treatment. Your Esperanza Hope Primary Care specialist might recommend a series of microneedling or other aesthetic procedures to help you achieve the most desirable outcome.
Don’t let unwelcome signs of aging make you feel self-conscious when simple aesthetic treatments are available. Schedule a consultation with Esperanza Hope Primary Care over the phone today, or request an appointment online at your convenience.
