The micro-injuries created by microneedling send out red flags that trigger your body’s responses to repair the tissue – that skin comes back is almost like baby skin.
Crank Up The Collagen And Enjoy Beautiful Skin With Microneedling!
Microneedling stands in a class of its own when it comes to effective skin rejuvenation. This minimally invasive skin treatment consistently produces amazing results for people of all skin types. The magic behind the needles of a microneedling device is its ability to rev up your body’s own collagen production, which is the essential building block of firm, youthful-looking skin. Collagen diminishes as we age, leading to the lackluster skin nobody wants. But microneedling can provide some awesome skin-loving benefits!
How does microneedling work?
It’s actually pretty simple. Treatment with microneedling involves using a small handheld device that contains a series of very fine needles. These tiny needles safely penetrate the upper layers of your skin to create micro-injuries (“micro” as in they’re virtually invisible to the naked eye). This stimulates your body’s natural healing process by creating new layers of elastin and collagen, the essential proteins abundantly found in youthful, healthy skin.
Microneedling can be customized to address a number of skin issues. At Bella Vida Aesthetics & Wellness, Iani Silveira, MSN, FNP-BC, CPN, offers the option of using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood to enhance results for the ultimate skin and/or hair rejuvenation. We can also combine treatment with other clinically proven ingredients to deliver powerful results to meet your individual skin needs.
What can microneedling treat?
No two people’s skin is exactly the same, so it makes sense for microneedling to tackle a gamut of concerns and conditions. Some of the most common of which include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Dark spots/hyperpigmentation
- Sun damage
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Much more!
What areas of skin is microneedling best suited for?
The versatility of microneedling allows for it to be used on many different areas of the body, including:
- Scalp (for hair restoration)
What can I expect during my microneedling treatment?
First, we’ll apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area. Once that takes effect, we’ll gently move the microneedling device across your skin in strategic motions. You’ll likely feel a bit of a prickly sensation, but the numbing cream will help make sure you feel nice and comfortable for the most part. Immediately following your session, any skin-nourishing serums picked out just for you will be applied. Any concoction we apply is very quickly and easily absorbed by the treated skin, so it really packs a welcomed “punch” of effectiveness.
Are there any side effects from microneedling?
Microneedling usually has minimal side effects and requires little to no downtime. Most people experience mild swelling and redness in the treatment area (just like a mild sunburn). That typically goes away in about 24-48 hours. There’s also minimal risk of scarring or infections with microneedling when it’s done right by a trained professional like Iani…so don’t even bother with an at-home microneedling device that claims the same results. Trust us on that one.
When will I see the results after my microneedling treatment?
Most people notice some degree of improvement in their skin right after treatment. But the real kicker is that continued improvement happens in the following days and weeks as collagen production goes into high gear, eventually leaving you with smooth, gorgeous skin.
How many microneedling treatments are needed for best results?
Even though most people notice improvement after just one treatment, the more dramatic improvements of tighter, smoother skin typically take about three treatments spaced around 30 days apart. That will depend on your skin’s condition and your individual goals, of course. During your concierge consultation, Iani will be sure to map out a customized plan just for you.
