Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, stimulates your body’s natural healing process to improve your skin and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production by creating an inflammatory response that signals your body to produce more collagen in the dermal layer of your skin. This cosmetic treatment provides a way to resurface your skin without the thermal injury of a laser.
Microneedling is a painless treatment in which your provider pricks your skin with tiny microneedles. The small pricks from the needles signal your body’s inflammatory response, prompting your skin to produce the collagen that strengthens, tightens, lifts, heals, and rebuilds your skin.
Microneedling treatments can work wonders on your skin. Many patients see a reduction or full elimination of:
If you have other skin imperfections or signs of aging that you’d like to target, your provider can decide whether or not microneedling is your best option for treatment. After one or more microneedling treatments, you’ll notice that your skin appears younger, smoother, and more even in tone.
Before the microneedling begins, your provider applies a numbing ointment to the treatment area. Then, for about 30 minutes, they use a microneedling tool to gently prick your skin using a topical of a hydrating hyaluronic acid or platelet-rich plasma (vampire facial) depending on desired treatment type and results.
At the end of your appointment, your provider applies a calming serum to your skin to reduce any irritation or redness.
You don’t need to reserve any extra downtime after your procedure with the exception of some minor red or pinkish color for about 24 hours. Your skin will be sensitive for a few days after the treatment, so you should apply sunscreen each time you go outside.
After a few weeks and often days, you’ll be able to see the full results of your procedure. Depending on your goals, you may need several microneedling sessions four to five weeks apart to get your ideal results.
Since microneedling is minimally invasive and fairly gentle, many people respond well to the treatment. You may be a good candidate if you:
At your consultation, be sure to tell your provider about your skin conditions and medications that you’re taking. Then, they decide whether you should proceed with the treatment.
Yes, Body Lounge Park Cities can combine your microneedling with Sculptra® or platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
Sculptra is a dermal filler that naturally stimulates your own collagen production. Adding Sculptra to your microneedling is like icing on the cake. When Sculptra is used with microneedling, the results yield thickening and tightening of the skin and an overall glow, giving your skin a youthful, brighter appearance.
A PRP injection is made from your own blood that contains a concentrated amount of platelets and specialized proteins your body uses to heal and restore collagen. When applied to your skin after microneedling, the growth factors in the platelets promote healing of the “injured tissue” to restore and enhance the skin regions that needed volume as well as, improve their texture and tone.
PRP with microneedling can also be used as a treatment for hair restoration. The platelets in the PRP stimulate hair follicle growth to create thicker, fuller, and healthier hair.
