Microneedling is a trending cosmetic treatment that is gaining popularity due to celebrities and other public figures promoting it as a facial skin rejuvenation solution. Although these trends are often all buzz, microneedling is an incredibly effective rejuvenation treatment that has been offered by medical spas and other medical practices for years. The microneedling treatment works by restoring collagen to the skin, which is why the treatment is often referred to as collagen induction therapy. Once collagen is restored to the skin, the skin tissue begins to strengthen and repair itself, resulting in voluminous, radiant, and youthful skin that can indeed rejuvenate your appearance.
Does Microneedling in Fort Lauderdale Hurt?
Microneedling treatment can be intimidating, as puncturing holes into the skin is not often something that people seek out. However, microneedling treatments are typically accompanied by topical anesthetics in order to minimize any discomfort during the treatment. Once the skin is adequately numbed, a microneedling device will be used to puncture hundreds of tiny holes into the surface of the skin triggering collagen production in the body, as the body produces collagen to help heal the microscopic wounds.
Microneedling Post Treatment Expectations
Immediately after microneedling, the skin will look red and may have some minor bruising. These effects will only last a couple of days, and most patients find that their skin is fully recovered within 72 hours. The collagen restoration process happens gradually after treatment, so results will not be visible until about four to eight weeks after treatment. At this point, patients will begin to notice improvements in the volume and appearance of the skin. In some cases, patients will need multiple treatments to achieve their desired results.
