Applying retinoids. Eating a balanced diet. Wearing sunscreen. Most of the things that we do for our skin offer a less-than-instant payoff. Microneedling is no different. And while it takes some time for the treatment to work its magic, the results are so worth it.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling works by creating tiny channels in the skin to trigger a beneficial healing response. That wound-repair process takes place in three phases:
- Phase 1: Inflammation.
- Phase 2: Proliferation.
- Phase 3: Remodeling.
After a microneedling treatment, your skin works quickly to rejuvenate new tissue. You may notice some immediate benefits. As collagen is deposited over the next few weeks, the tone and texture of your skin should become more even.
We use SkinPen® microneedling at our practice because it works. In a clinical trial, ninety percent of patients said they would recommend the procedure to family and friends. With SkinPen®, you can enjoy a continued improvement in your skin for up to six months after your last treatment.
Get The Most From Your Microneedling Treatment
A single microneedling session can improve the texture and radiance of your skin. However, three or more treatments are recommended to achieve the most effective results. Concerns such as sun damage, early signs of aging, and acne scars respond best to a series of microneedling appointments.
Adding PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to your treatment can help you enjoy tighter, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin faster. It has powerful healing properties and is great for non-surgical rejuvenation.
Microneedling can also be combined with hyaluronic acid-based serums. These serums penetrate the skin more effectively after treatment.
