The benefits of microneedling

If you look in the mirror and miss your youthful, glowing skin, ask Christi Stowers at Rejuvenation Spa about microneedling. There are several proven methods to revitalize skin and repair damage and signs of aging. Lasers, fillers, peels, and microdermabrasion provide great results, and each has its individual benefits. Microneedling takes skin rejuvenation to new levels.

Tiny “wounds” produce collagen

Microneedling is a popular collagen-induction treatment which is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. These needles are used to puncture the skin at various depths to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that stimulates the skin to produce collagen which “heals” the wounds created by the fine needles. There is little-to-no downtime with this procedure, and it is safe for most skin types.

Little to no downtime

When it comes to rejuvenating the skin, patients tend to seek minimally invasive treatment that doesn’t create bruises, swelling, or redness. For busy clients, downtime is not desirable. Microneedling has little to no downtime, and it can restore the skin’s youthful attributes.

The procedure

Christi starts the treatment by applying a numbing cream. Most patients say it feels prickly—not painful. Microneedles ranging from 0.1  to 2.5 mm. Since the needles can be repositioned as needed, it’s a totally customized procedure; adjustments can be made for the comfort of the patient. The procedure includes at least 2 passes over the skin of the area to be treated. Needle penetration, frequency of needle penetration, and the number of passes all affect the outcome of the procedure which creates pores in the skin to stimulate the release of growth factors. After the treatment, Christi applies soothing lotions, and the patient walks out with visible results and little to no downtime and the beneficial healing process begins.

Lasting benefits

Microneedling is valued because improvement continues for months, and the skin improves throughout that time. That’s what makes it one of the best treatments available.

Precautions

Patients who have a history of keloid scarring or a history of herpes simplex virus around the mouth should discuss this with the Christi before receiving treatment. There are some absolute contraindications to this procedure such as scleroderma, collagen vascular disease, clotting disorder, active infection, and immunosuppression. Overall, this is a safe, effective facial rejuvenation treatment.
