How Can Microneedling Help Your Skin?
- Posted on: Jan 30 2023
Microneedling treatment with radiofrequency is an effective option at North Dallas Dermatology Associates in Dallas, TX. This treatment has been proven to improve the overall appearance of aged skin and reduce the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines. Not only that, but microneedling can also enhance collagen production and give you visibly smoother, softer skin after just one session.
What is A Microneedling Treatment?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure in which tiny needles puncture the top layer of your skin. The goal is to create small wounds or “micro-injuries” that stimulate collagen production, resulting in firmer, smoother skin over time. The procedure isn’t painful; most patients feel little more than a mild tingling sensation as the needles enter their skin. Depending on the severity of your condition, one to four treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results.
What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Microneedling is a powerful treatment that can drastically improve the appearance of your skin. With microneedling, you can reduce the appearance of scars, wrinkles, pores, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone while improving skin elasticity. Microneedling has become a popular treatment for many skin concerns due to its range of benefits, chief among them being the stimulation of collagen and elastin production. This boost to your body’s regenerative process is integral in helping treat various conditions.
To maximize its effects, our microneedling treatments are done with radiofrequency technology. During this procedure, tiny needles puncture the skin and create controlled wounds while releasing radiofrequency into them; this enhances microneedling’s anti-aging results. If you’re looking for a safe and effective way to visibly improve your skin photos without surgery or abrasive chemicals, microneedling with radiofrequency may be right.
What is a Microneedling Treatment Like with Us?
We understand that undertaking any cosmetic medical procedure can be nerve-wracking, but rest assured that our professional team will always provide safety and comfort as top priorities during your experience. Here is an up-and-close look at a microneedling treatment:
If you believe microneedling can benefit your skin, then the first step is to schedule a consultation with our team. During the consultation, we will assess the treatment area and create a tailored plan that fits your daily needs and lifestyle.
We would also like to know about any medications, supplements, or topical treatments you are currently taking before beginning microneedling. Aspirin, ibuprofen, and Accutane should all be avoided leading up to microneedling.
Additionally, please refrain from abrasive skincare regimens, exfoliants, topical antibiotics, or acids at least 48 hours before the procedure. Lastly, protect your skin from direct sunlight in the days before microneedling to ensure that your skin can experience all its microneedling benefits after treatment.
To ensure the best microneedling benefits, starting with a clean face is essential. Come to your appointment without makeup or lotions. We can even wash your face to ensure that your skin is free of bacteria and germs. Then we apply a topical numbing cream before beginning the microneedling treatment. After 30 minutes, the procedure can begin. Once the microneedling treatment at this session is complete, we will send you back to the world feeling rejuvenated and with an improved complexion.
However, to see microneedling’s full benefits, it’s essential to take all necessary steps during recovery. After microneedling, we recommend avoiding direct and unprotected sun exposure for at least two weeks. We will also recommend hydrating creams rich in antioxidants and advise drinking lots of water to keep skin hydrated.
Avoid strenuous exercise or other cosmetic treatments for at least two weeks after microneedling. As well as any use of makeup within 24 hours. Caffeine and alcohol should also be consumed in moderation while recuperating, as these can dehydrate you. In most cases, results from microneedling start becoming visible within one week, with the best results being seen three to four weeks post-procedure after collagen production has increased significantly in the treated areas.
What Makes Me a Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling has become increasingly popular to safely and effectively rejuvenate the skin. Radiofrequency microneedling offers individuals with good overall health and realistic expectations of the results many great benefits.
However, before you book an appointment, it is essential to consider whether microneedling is right for you. Those on Accutane, who have skin infections, or psoriasis, are receiving chemotherapy or radiation treatments, are taking anticoagulants, and are pregnant or lactating should not have microneedling treatments. If microneedling is a good fit for your skin type and beauty goals, be sure to schedule a consultation with us to discuss the procedure’s benefits and your expected results from treatment so that you can make an informed decision.
