There are numerous cosmetic issues that can be successfully resolved without tissue removal, cutting or other invasive procedures. Micro needling is a revolutionary treatment that fosters faster regeneration of healthy skin cells and a marked increase in natural collagen production. If you have dark spots, enlarged pores, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles or other aesthetic issues, micro needling could be the ideal solution for you.
How Micro Needling is Performed
During a micro needling treatment, an intensive, nutrient-rich serum is applied to the surface of the treated area. A small, hand-held device that is studded with twelve, tiny needles is then moved over the dermis to create a small amount of controlled skin damage.
Each prick caused by the micro-needles will allow the topical serum to seep down into the deepest layers of the dermis for optimal effects. This treatment also removes old, dead skin cells from the surface layer of skin to create a brighter and healthier-looking complexion overall.
The Benefits of Micro Needling
Foremost among the benefits is the fact that this is a low-risk procedure with a very short recovery time and yet, it is still capable of producing remarkable results. The removal of old, damaged skin cells will quickly reveal a layer of skin that is more vibrant and resilient. Controlled skin damage of this type also incites the body’s natural healing efforts by bringing more blood flow to the treated area.
People who receive these treatments also have the advantage of new capillaries in the targeted area and long-term improvements in circulation. Best of all, micro-needling helps create new collagen and elastin fibers for greater skin elasticity and fewer fine lines and wrinkles.
What To Expect on the Day of Your Micro Needling Treatment
Before the day of your actual procedure, the surgeon will examine your skin and learn more about your aesthetic concerns during a consultation appointment. Certain severe issues may be better resolved through other intensive treatments. You can discuss your short and long-term goals during this visit in order to determine whether this is the best solution for you.
Ice or a special numbing cream can be applied to your skin before the start of the procedure to minimize discomfort. Your face will then be coated in a Vitamin C-rich serum for increased benefits. The micro needling process typically lasts just 15 to 20 minutes.
Micro Needling Results
It can take approximately two weeks to achieve noticeable differences in the overall texture and tone of your skin. During this time, you’ll see some gradual improvements resulting from better blood flow to the targeted area and increased collagen production.
Micro needling can produce a significant reduction in the appearance of stretch marks, fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, enlarged pores and acne scars among other things. Depending upon the type and severity of your issues, more than one micro needling treatment may be recommended. Contact the office of Dr. Thomas Funcik today to schedule your consultation.
