MicroneedlingConveniently located to serve New Smyrna Beach, FL
If your blemishes, large pores, or fine wrinkles are causing self-consciousness and embarrassment, consider microneedling in New Smyrna Beach. This treatment option restores skin health to transform the appearance of dull, rough, or loose skin.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Collagen and elastin are proteins in our skin tissues that create structure, volume, elasticity, and an overall healthy appearance. As we age, our skin tissues’ collagen and elastin production rates decline.
The microneedling treatment is a form of collagen-induction therapy. It creates microscopic injuries in the skin layers, and these controlled micro-injuries stimulate the body’s healing and repair response. This increases collagen and elastin production rates in the region.
Microneedling creates micro-injuries through the use of a microneedling pen. This automated treatment tool features several incredibly fine needles calibrated to reach various depths in the skin layers.
Micro-injuries also serve as micro channels in the tissues. Through these, various nourishing serums can be administered deep into the tissues, making their results more effective.
The results of a microneedling session appear gradually as the skin produces new collagen and elastin. Because of this, the results look very natural. For best results, a series of treatments is recommended.
What Are the Benefits of This Treatment?
Microneedling can help to resolve a number of skin problems:
- Enlarged pores
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Smoker’s lines around the lips
- Acne scarring
- Keloid scarring
- Stretch marks
- Lost volume
This treatment can be used to improve the appearance of the face, neck, and hands. It can also be used on a multitude of other areas on the body, including the chest, thighs, back, and abdomen.
Microneedling is customized in two ways: the depth of the needles and the types of serums administered into the microchannels.
The procedure is quite safe, and the needles of the microneedling pen are discarded after each use, eliminating the chance of contracting an infection.
What to Expect During Your Treatment Session
Microneedling sessions are very short. At the start, the area targeted for treatment is numbed using a topical anesthetic. This makes the procedure pain-free and more comfortable. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, the microneedling pen is placed against the skin’s surface and the treatment is performed. Serums are administered after the micro channels have been created.
What Is Aftercare Like?
Once the microneedling procedure has been performed, patients will experience one to three days of minimal swelling, redness, and bruising. Light peeling of dead and damaged skin cells may take place, revealing new blemish-free skin layers. No major recovery is required.
Avoid putting on traditional makeup in treated regions for 24 hours, since this can lead to new breakouts. Avoid prolonged sun exposure, and make sure to wear proper sunscreen and moisturizers. Stay away from saunas and swimming pools, and do not participate in strenuous exercise routines.
The price of microneedling varies from med spa to med spa. Cost may be impacted by the number of treatments received, the types of skin conditions being resolved, and other factors. We offer financing through CareCredit.
