If you are bothered by the appearance of your skin because of problems like lines and wrinkles, you would probably benefit from increasing the amount of collagen and elastin present in your skin. These unique substances help thicken and provide elasticity to your skin, which helps stave off the development of wrinkles. The benefits of microneedling go beyond its anti-aging effects. If you are also dealing with acne scars or other blemishes, you could enhance the appearance of your skin by undergoing a treatment.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling, sometimes known as Collagen Induction Therapy, stimulates your body into the production of new collagen and elastin to help renew your skin and minimize the appearance of wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, melasma, and rough skin tone.
During this treatment, we move a special device over your skin. This results in hundreds of microscopic channels that trigger your body into a self-repair process, turning over old skin cells in favor of new ones that display fewer imperfections like signs of aging.
Can I Have Multiple Microneedling Procedures?
Yes! In fact, patients typically benefit from additional microneedling treatments because the process offers results that are cumulative in nature. Each successive treatment will build upon the results of the previous treatments as your skin is rejuvenated over the course of weeks to months.
If you typically have topical skin care products applied to your skin, you should know that microneedling can greatly increase their effectiveness. This is because the treatment process creates hundreds of tiny skin channels that allow these products to flow more easily beneath the surface of your skin.
What are the Advantages Over Other Treatments?
Microneedling in OKC offers results that are quite natural-looking, as opposed to some types of procedures that make a patient look “worked on”. You are simply encouraging the formation of new skin tissue that displays fewer imperfections, leading to a more youthful appearance.
In addition to results that appear more natural, microneedling has the advantage of extremely short downtimes. In fact, most patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately after their treatment.
