It would be a dream come true if a skin treatment that could remedy multiple problems at once. Actually, this solution really exists: microneedling. The procedure is a multitasker extraordinaire when it comes to rejuvenating your skin.
The experienced and talented team at Essence Skin Clinic is supportive of your skin care goals, and we know that all it may take to attain the skin you want is using the proper tool. There are many ways microneedling can improve your skin.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that harnesses your body’s own healing power in order to revitalize your skin. The handheld device used for microneedling has many tiny needles that make miniscule puncture wounds in your skin.
A microneedling treatment activates your skin’s natural healing response. Your skin’s self-repair mechanism boosts the production of elastin and collagen, proteins that increase your skin’s elasticity.
Our skilled Essence Skin Clinic team treats you with TLC during a microneedling session. Before performing the procedure, we scrupulously cleanse your skin. We then move the device over your face while applying gentle, even pressure.
After your treatment, we apply toner followed up with a mild moisturizer to enhance your skin’s healing. Each microneedling session lasts about 1-1 ½ hours.
Five diverse benefits of microneedling
Microneedling’s superpower is that it can address many skin problems at once. Here are five ways this treatment can improve your skin.
- Minimize acne scarring and scars from injury or surgery
- Noticeably tighten your skin
- Reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation (age spots)
- Minimize pores
- Soften wrinkles and fine lines
Talk about a dermatology power-packed punch! The enthusiasm surrounding microneedling isn’t unfounded, and our team has seen it brighten the faces of many of our patients.
What about after the microneedling session?
Microneedling doesn’t require excessive downtime or cause undue post-treatment discomfort. You may experience slight redness or inflammation a few days after your session, and because your skin will be sensitive to sunlight, it’s important to remember to be diligent about applying sunscreen.
The most fabulous part of your microneedling experience happens about two weeks after you get your treatment. As the healing occurs from the inside out, you see markedly refreshed skin. And the improved look intensifies as the weeks go on.
