What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure primarily used on the face to treat and reduce the appearance of large pores, scars and wrinkles. It is also used to decrease the appearance of different types of scars and helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks on the body. Skin Loft uses the most advanced patented and FDA cleared microneedling system. Fine sterile needles create small punctures in the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin, leading to the release of growth factors and stimulating the formation of new collagen, elastin and neovascularization in the dermis. Collagen production decreases as we get older, which leads to our skin aging, so by stimulating the collagen production, the skin will take on a more youthful appearance. The collagen and elastin will also heal the skin where it was pricked with the microneedles and fill in the holes left behind, which helps to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
What are the advantages of Microneedling?
Microneedling is a non-surgical treatment that is performed as an in-office procedure through a certified and trained dermatologist, nurse or AN aesthetician. The treatment is quick, taking less than an hour, with minimal downtime. Due to the nature of the treatment, the Client may experience some pin-point bleeding, swelling on the treated area but it will clear up after a couple of days. Microneedling stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin which slows down as we age and is considered a minimally invasive treatment. Microneedling is safe for most clients as there is no risk from a substance being injected into the body. It is also significantly less expensive than laser therapy treatments and is a better treatment choice for individuals with darker skin tones.
How long does it take to see results from microneedling?
Each Client’s needs and results are going to be different from microneedling and most people may notice changes immediately following the procedure. However, the most dramatic results will be visible in clients after about three to six treatments, which happen over the span of several weeks. The prolonged time period to see full results is due to the fact that the body is healing itself, which takes time. Everyone heals at a different rate, so this will also impact the amount of time needed to see results from microneedling. Deeper lines and creases in the skin will also take longer to see noticeable results due to the depth of the lines, in this case we suggest combining microneedling with botox and other treatment options available at Skin Loft.
How long does Microneedling last?
Each Client’s results and the longevity of their results will be different based on how their body heals itself. A maintenance plan will be needed to keep the skin looking its best. Microneedling treatments can last roughly 3 to 4 months, so clients should anticipate needing 3 to 4 treatments a year. Having the proper skin care routine at home will help to increase the effectiveness of the treatment and prolong the results. The clinician performing the procedure will be able to provide you with a treatment and maintenance plan, letting you know how long to go between treatments and what skin care regime to follow between treatments for the best, longest lasting results based on your unique situation.
