Has your skin lost its youthful appearance despite your best efforts to stay hydrated and to keep it moisturized? Do you have stubborn scars or stretch marks that have not faded over time? If you are looking for a way to restore healthy luster to your skin or to minimize the appearance of scars, microneedling may be for you. Learn more during a consultation at Advanced Laser and Cosmetic Center at one of our three locations in the Cincinnati, OH, area.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a chemical-free way to stimulate your skin’s natural healing abilities. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment rejuvenates skin by inducing collagen production.
The procedure involves the use of a small instrument to create microchannels on the skin. This triggers a healing response in the epidermis, the outermost layer of skin. This procedure causes new and healthier skin cells to replace the old, and it also encourages production of new collagen, improving skin elasticity.
What Issues Can Microneedling Address?
Microneedling can address a variety of skin issues including:
- Crow’s feet
- Uneven skin pigmentation
- Stretch marks
What Results Can I Expect?
Recovery time for microneedling is only one to two days. Some experience treatment results immediately while others need multiple treatments before achieving lasting results. Call us at Advanced Laser and Cosmetic Center for a consultation to see how quickly you might see results from microneedling.
We recommend that patients wait four weeks between treatments to allow the skin to heal completely. That said, our specialists can advise you about creams or other products that can help support the healing process between treatments.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments you may need will depend on the skin issue being addressed. For example, moderate scars may only take two or three sessions, while deeper scars may require five or more.
Am I A Good Candidate For Microneedling?
Microneedling may be an ideal skin treatment for you if you want to:
- Reduce the appearance of signs of aging, such as wrinkles
- Heal skin damaged from sun exposure
- Diminish stretch marks
- Even out skin tone
- Regain skin’s elasticity
Are Microneedling Results Permanent?
The longevity of microneedling results will vary depending on the issue being treated. Unfortunately, we cannot stop the aging process, but we can reverse its visible effects. After undergoing the number of treatments needed to achieve desired results, touching up every four to six months will help maintain your skin’s newfound youth.
