What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment providing many skin care benefits. The minimally invasive process involves an aesthetician gently inserting sterilized, very fine needles into the skin. The body reacts to these minor punctures by releasing growth factors and cytokines to heal the wounds, helping to increase collagen and elastin. And while microneedling can sound overwhelming, the needles are tiny and only enter at the surface level.
A much-desired goal of the process is plump, youthful and rejuvenated skin, but microneedling has other advantages too. While often used on the face, microneedling can improve the quality of your skin across the whole body. Scars, acne, stretch marks, sun damage, fine lines, clogged pores and wrinkles can all see significant improvements after a microneedling treatment.
What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Microneedling is an affordable approach to achieving healthy, glowing skin. The treatment encourages the development of natural substances in the body and takes advantage of the body’s natural healing properties. In practice, this promotion of collagen and elastin in targeted areas where the skin needs help can be adapted for many uses. Here are some of the most common skin issues we treat with microneedling at Beauti Science Med Spa in Plano.
- Fine lines
- Sagging skin
- Dull skin
- Large pores
- Sun damage
- Stretch marks
- Hair loss
A Look at the Microneedling Treatment Process
- To begin, numbing cream is added to the treatment area to prevent pain.
- Next, your aesthetician will begin dermal penetration using a physician-grade device that is carefully rolled over the skin.
- The device penetrates the skin to a maximum depth of 3mm, creating a temporary wound that stimulates healing properties.
- As collagen production is increased, fine lines, wrinkles and other skin issues will be smoothed over to create more volume and a natural glow.
To achieve the best results, it will take around 4-6 treatments that last approximately 30 minutes or less. However, the number of treatments and duration of each session may vary depending on the size of the area and health of the skin.
Treatments are spaced out over a 4-6 week period and some regular maintenance treatments will ensure long-lasting impressive results. In most cases, you will experience some improvements from a single session, but repeat visits to our Plano med spa will be necessary to achieve your desired results.
When Is Microneedling Suitable?
Microneedling is suitable for anyone looking for firmer, brighter skin with improved texture and smoothness. Individuals seeking treatment for scars, acne, wrinkles and sun damage could see dramatic improvements after completing a series of sessions.
If you have an active skin infection, severe acne or keloid scarring, it may not be possible to undergo microneedling. Additionally, while it may be possible to use microneedling with cosmetic injectables, products like Botox® should be applied to healthy skin. Therefore, it is recommended that microneedling treatments be completed and the treated area has had time to heal, before administering cosmetic injectables. Speak to our experienced Plano aesthetician for more specific advice.
Microneedling With Platelet-Rich Plasma
At Beauti Science Med Spa we also offer microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Plasma containing platelets is an integral part of the healing process, helping the blood to clot. By integrating PRP with microneedling, it can deliver exceptional results to patients.
The process involves taking a blood sample and then isolating the PRP using a centrifuge tool. The microneedling process can then take place, creating small holes on the surface of the skin. PRP is then applied to these holes for added collagen production. By combining these two treatments, skin tissue repair is enhanced.
