Get Your Skin Holiday-Ready With Microneedling: Everything You Need To Know About Microneedling

The skin is one of, if not the most, noticeable aspects of our body. If not correctly cared for, the skin naturally deteriorates over time due to sun exposure and age.

But treating aged or damaged skin can be difficult.

In many cases, our bodies have natural healing processes that weaken with age. As patients’ demands in the aesthetic and beauty industry align with more natural values, anti-aging treatments need to reflect these requests.

The increasing search for natural results in the beauty industry is perfectly understandable. As technology and medical knowledge advances, we are more capable than ever to leverage and stimulate our bodies’ biological healing processes to achieve the results we desire. This is precisely what microneedling does.

What Does Microneedling Achieve?

Without injections, foreign objects placed into the body, or chemicals, microneedling stimulates the skin’s natural healing and protein synthesis properties. This leads to tighter, younger-looking, and vibrant skin.

While procedures such as dermal fillers and Botox certainly have outstanding anti-aging and aesthetic effects, microneedling is unique in the way it stimulates our skin’s natural collagen synthesis.

How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling works on several levels.

SkinPen is the industry-preferred microneedling method and currently the only FDA-approved handheld device. Using the SkinPen, Dr. Armijo induces thousands or micro-injuries throughout the treatment area.

This works to stimulate new skin cell production, remove old dead cells, and get the skin’s natural protein synthesis process firing. It activates the body’s healing response and tightens the skin by increasing the number of structural-proteins, namely collagen, in the skin.

What Happens Before and After a Microneedling Procedure?

The procedure’s duration depends on the treatment area’s size, but most appointments last between twenty and forty minutes.

The treatment is entirely non-invasive, and as such, many patients don’t need any anesthesia. If you are concerned with pain before your procedure, we can provide a topical numbing agent beforehand to prevent any discomfort.

Patients will need to avoid direct sunlight for three days immediately following the procedure. Excessive sweating should also be avoided, as this gives your skin the opportunity it needs to heal and tighten adequately after the procedure.
