If this is your first time hearing about microneedling, you might be wondering what it is and how you can revitalize your skin in Cedar Park, TX with this treatment. Microneedling, which is also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is an innovative way of looking at treating skin problems like acne scars and fine lines.
The goal of this procedure is to create controlled micro-injuries that encourage your body to use its own healing process to create collagen and elastin. The collagen and elastin encourage your skin to repair itself in a quicker and better way. As a result, wrinkles soften, and fine lines all but disappear. Microneedling can produce results that you might not be able to obtain with topical creams alone. Something that’s interesting about this treatment is that since micro-channels are created in your skin, they allow topical creams and topical gels to be better absorbed into the skin.
What are the benefits of microneedling? One includes reducing the number of fine lines and wrinkles that you have. Another benefit is skin that looks younger and that does not bear all of the negative telltale signs of aging. Other benefits include a reduction in acne scars, a reduction in hyperpigmentation, and an overall fresher appearance and glow in your skin.
The procedure is performed in the comfort of our office in Cedar Park, TX. Before the procedure begins, our skincare professional is going to select how much the micro-needles should penetrate your skin. Next, a single-motion pen is going to be pressed against your skin. As it slides across your skin, it is going to create micro-channels over the entire area that is being treated.
The entire procedure typically takes just minutes to complete, depending on how large of an area you want to treat, among other factors. You’re going to notice an immediate glow on your skin. The good results will continue to be seen over the following months as your body produces more and more collagen.
