Microneedling

Microneedling at All Star Wellness Center

Your face defines you. It is the first facet of your body that an individual notices, giving an impression of who you are and what you have been through in your life. Unfortunately, the defining nature of your face can sometimes be a drawback. As you age, lines and wrinkles begin to form as your natural production of collagen, a structural protein that promotes skin elasticity, reduces. These lines and wrinkles certainly aren’t desirable because they can leave people questioning your age and youthful capabilities. And what’s worse, these lines and wrinkles can potentially make you feel as though you are old, causing you to doubt your vitality. Stop the doubt and look and feel young again by having a microneedling treatment.

Microneedling is a versatile treatment that can help improve your lines and wrinkles and correct many other cosmetic concerns. From sun damage to acne scarring, the exceptional treatment can do wonders to enhance your image.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a unique treatment that utilizes thousands of tiny needle punctures on the upper layers of your skin. These small needle punctures create micro-channels in your facial tissue, which ultimately prompts your skin to produce more collagen and elastin, causing your skin to develop new, healthier skin tissue. The micro-channels the procedure creates also make the absorption of creams, gels and serums more effective. The treatment involves running a handheld device along your skin that feature a cartridge containing needles that can penetrate the skin at depths from 0.5 to 2.5 millimeters. The depth of the needles depends on which part of your face needs treatment. More fleshy parts, such as the cheeks, will require a deeper depth, while an area such as the forehead will need a shallower depth. 

Microneedling is an excellent cosmetic procedure that can boost your beauty by reducing fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, hyper/hypo-pigmentation and stretch marks. The treatment can also be combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a substance your body produces that encourages growth factors, to help further results. 

What Cosmetic Concerns Can Microneedling Correct?

Microneedling is the perfect treatment for you if you have any of the following cosmetic concerns:

  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dull complexion
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scarring
  • Loose facial skin
  • Skin discoloration
  • Enlarged pores

While microneedling is a popular treatment for the face, it can also be performed on the neck, back of the hands, chest, arms and legs. During an initial consultation with our wellness specialist, Karen Scott, PA-C, she can assess your skin’s quality and your unique cosmetic concerns to determine if microneedling will benefit you. 

What Happens During a Microneedling Treatment?

Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure that takes approximately 60 minutes, including numbing time. Your treatment will begin with your skin being cleansed and a topical anesthetic is applied to help mitigate any discomfort. After the anesthetic has remained on your skin for approximately thirty minutes it is removed and your skin is cleansed again. A light layer of serum is then applied. Next, the microneedling device is glided evenly across your skin horizontally, vertically and circularly. After the microneedling is complete, another layer of serum is applied to help soothe the skin.

Microneedling is a tolerable experience that creates exceptional results. Your skin will be visibly brighter and fresh with vitality immediately after the treatment. For optimal results, it is recommended to have a microneedling procedure once a month for three months. Your skin continues to produce more collagen and elastin, firming your skin. Results last for a year typically.

Your face says a lot about you, but when lines and wrinkles appear, acne scarring doesn’t seem to go away or the sun causes damage, what it says about you could not be flattering. These cosmetic flaws may appear as though they’re here to stay, but that isn’t the case with microneedling.
