Show Low, AZ patients who are dealing with dull, tired, and aging skin may not be sure who to turn to for help. Even with a proper skincare routine, many adult men and women are looking for a solution that can help enhance and rejuvenate the skin for a fresher, more youthful appearance. In these situations, our team at Olack Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery may recommend a procedure called microneedling.
Understanding how microneedling works
The sound of a procedure called “microneedling” may sound intimidating, but it is actually a reliable method of rejuvenating the skin. Microneedling is a certain treatment during which a specialized device is run along the skin to create hundreds of tiny micro-punctures. This stimulates the skin to create more collagen and elastin, which is how the skin heals after trauma. In doing this, the skin is refreshed with time and patients will enjoy an enhanced appearance and improved health.
What can microneedling be used for?
There are many conditions and concerns that can be resolved with the use of microneedling treatments. These include:
- Mild to moderate acne scars
- Wound healing
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Poor skin laxity
- Sagging or looser skin
- Keloid scars
What can I expect from a microneedling treatment?
First and foremost, our providers will apply a topical solution to the skin to numb it, ensuring patient comfort from start to finish. Then, an FDA-cleared medical device that looks similar to a pen is used along the skin to create the micro-punctures. Patients will leave the office with tender and red skin, but will find that over the course of several weeks, their skin improves dramatically and they can enjoy the advantages of healthier looking, more youthful skin for many months to come. Patients might combine microneedling with other skin services for a more noticeable change in the skin.
