There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the new hot skin treatment called ‘microneedling.’ If you don’t know anything about the procedure, it can be a little bit intimidating. After all, it is essentially rolling needles onto your skin. Fortunately, the procedure is safe and effective, helping patients improve their skin’s texture and firmness while reducing scars, pore size, and stretch marks. In fact, the treatment is considered a more effective way to do a facial.
At ROXY Plastic Surgery, we’re committed to helping you understand the latest and greatest skin care treatments, so you can make an informed decision about your skin care needs. We’ve answered your most frequently asked questions about microneedling.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The device looks like a big paint brush with small metal spikes. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin in order to fill these microscopic wounds.
As the body creates new collagen, the client will notice a drastic change in their skin’s texture and firmness, revealing a more youthful glow overall.This treatment can also be combined with your own PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) to upgrade to the Vampire Facial for even better results!
Microneedling is great for those that are suffering from acne scars, textured skin, or clogged pores. Since it doesn’t use heat, it’s safe for all skin colors and types. The treatment isn’t exclusive to the face, either. Microneedling can be done anywhere on the body that needs to be thickened. In fact, it’s great for treating stretch marks on the legs, chest, or butt.
If you currently have a cystic breakout, we usually recommend you wait until it clears up before your microneedling appointment.
Microneedling is a safe, effective treatment that won’t hurt. A cream is applied beforehand that will numb the skin. This allows us to go deeper depending on the results you want.
After your treatment, the skin will be a little pink. You may notice a few scabs or punctures, but these tiny blemishes will clear up in just a few days.
