How Microneedling Works
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive aesthetic treatment that creates micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the skin’s natural healing process and the production of collagen. It is also associated with promoting cell regeneration, resulting in healthier, firmer skin.
This procedure can treat deeper layers of the skin without having the remove or damage the top layer of skin, resulting in less downtime. Microneedling also allows for better absorption of skincare products by the skin, making them more effective.
Who is a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling is a safe treatment for all skin types, as it stimulates the natural healing process that all skin performs. Patients who are unhappy with the appearance of scars, fines lines and wrinkles, large pores, or uneven skin texture are often good candidates for this treatment. A consultation at our Boca Raton office is needed to help best determine if this treatment is a good match for you.
Recovery from Microneedling
After a microneedling treatment, patients may experience mild redness and swelling for up to 48 hours. Mineral makeup can be applied after the procedure to disguise any redness. Side effects should resolve quickly, and results should start to become visible within two weeks. Improvements will continue to appear over time, with full results becoming apparent a few months after treatment. Most patients will need three to four treatments for best results.
