As you age, you may notice signs of aging like sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Fortunately, Dr. Michael Paltiel provides microneedling, a noninvasive procedure that rejuvenates and repairs the skin. Microneedling may seem frightening, but it is a very efficient and painless method of obtaining a completely radiant and bright complexion.
Microneedling involves inserting tiny needles beneath the skin’s surface, causing minor injuries in the deeper layers. This then stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin as part of the body’s normal reaction to a wound.
Here are reasons you should consider microneedling;
Removes wrinkles and fine lines
Microneedling increases collagen production, strengthening and elasticizing your skin to enhance suppleness and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Microneedling typically lasts an hour or less. Before beginning treatment, your doctor will apply a numbing chemical to your skin to ensure you are as comfortable as possible.
After your session, you could feel a little red, but downtime is no need; you can get on with your regular activities immediately. To protect your skin while it recovers and regenerates, you should wear sunscreen consistently.
Even while your acne may be gone, the scars it left behind might have a long-term impact on your confidence and self-esteem. However, microneedling could be the remedy you have been looking for. Microneedling helps your skin recover, filling in acne scars that have receded and enhancing the texture and appearance of your skin.
Microneedling is a successful therapy option for scars resulting from trauma and surgery and acne scars. Microneedling may also assist in the removal of your stretch marks.
It aids in lifting sagging skin
Collagen and elastin are two crucial skin proteins that make skin seem and feel firmer and healthier. However, as you age, your body produces less elastin and collagen. Your skin becomes looser and more prone to wrinkles and creases when the synthesis of elastin and collagen slows.
A specialized tool is used in microneedling to inflict a succession of microscopic “micro-injuries” on your skin. These wounds trigger your skin’s natural healing mechanisms, which results in increased collagen and elastin production. As a result, the skin seems firmer and fluffier to the touch.
Additionally, since microneedling is customized, you may concentrate on regions where skin elasticity is a severe problem, resulting in a natural finish that never appears pulled.
There is no downtime
There is no requirement for incisions or anesthesia because microneedling is a minimally invasive, noninvasive procedure. Compared to invasive treatments, this means a significantly decreased risk of consequences and no recovery period; you may resume your normal activities immediately after treatment.
You’ll likely experience some slight sunburn-like redness in the treatment region. However, the redness quickly goes away. It’s crucial to shield your skin from the sun’s UV rays and to keep it hydrated during the early stages of recovery. Nothing else demands particular attention.
Microneedling helps treat acne scars, reverse age indicators, and skin tone issues, leaving you with smooth and beautiful skin. Call Adult and Pediatric Dermatology to book your appointment for microneedling treatment for vibrant skin.
