Microneedling is an effective way to refresh your face and improve some of the most common skin concerns. Individuals, both young and old, are turning to microneedling in Bellevue for its skin rejuvenating benefits. Here’s what you can expect after your treatment with microneedling:
When the appropriate microneedling device is used by a licensed esthetician, there is minimal risk of infection or scarring after treatment. At Advanced Skin and Body, we use the only FDA-approved microneedling device on the market; the SkinPen. Its straight, sterile, and precise needles allow for the most effective and safest results.
Before you can enjoy the results of your microneedling treatment, your skin will need time to go through its natural healing process. During microneedling, tiny puncture wounds are created below the surface of the skin with the SkinPen device. This triggers the immune system to go to work repairing the puncture wounds. New collagen and elastin are produced, the essential ingredients to strong, healthy skin.
Over time, our skin begins to lose elasticity, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. With new collagen developing after microneedling, you can expect your skin to become stronger, tightening to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Many younger individuals are also turning to microneedling treatment to prolong their youthful looking skin with a boost of collagen.
Along with tightening the skin, microneedling can also improve the appearance of common blemishes such as acne scarring, sun damage, and age spots and can shrink the pores. While the channels in your skin are present after microneedling, skin care products can be more effectively absorbed, so you can get the most out of your products for optimal skin improvement!
