Microneedling is a popular procedure that involves small needles to prick the skin. The treatment generates new collagen and skin tissue for firmer, smoother, and more toned skin. Microneedling is commonly used on the face to treat scars, wrinkles, and even large pores. The procedure is safe and is much more affordable compared to laser surgery. Advanced Cosmesis Med Spa in Bayonne, NJ, offers microneedling and will help rejuvenate your skin so that you look refreshed, even younger.
The big advantage with microneedling is that some patients will see results within seven days, and significant results in three to four weeks. The treatment for a variety of skin conditions (acne scars, surgical scars, alopecia, melasma, vitiligo, hyperpigmentation, and actinic keratoses) makes small pricks in the skin, which means the body heals by itself as it produces new collagen and elastin. The extra collagen actually helps smooth, firm, and improve the skin, but since it might take a few weeks or more for collagen production to kick in, more time might be needed for full results to develop. Additionally, seeing real results will also depend on your specific cosmetic treatment. For example, if you are getting a treatment done for scars or acne, you may need four to six treatments, spread out over four to six weeks apart, and it could take between six months to a year for best results. Then there is treating the early signs of aging in the face: you might only need one treatment and your results could be seen in four to eight weeks. So, the more complex the procedure, then the longer time for results; and the less complex, the faster time for results.
Microneedling is approximately a two-hour procedure that is not overly painful. The good news is that there are ways the reduce any small discomfort. Skin redness and irritation are the most common side effects of microneedling. During the procedure, patients report the sensation of a warm, scratching feeling as the device is moved around the face. Some pain will also be felt on bonier areas, like the forehead, hairline, and jawline. However, the pain is minimized greatly with the aid of numbing cream that keeps patients comfortable and relaxed. Following the procedure, your doctor will place saline pads onto your skin, and a gel face mask might also be applied to reduce inflammation and redness. In order to minimize pain before the procedure, it is recommended that you avoid using products like retinoids or exfoliants as they increase sensitivity. Skin sensitivity also stems from waxing, shaving, and laser procedures and overexposure to the sun, so avoid them at all costs. There are also ways to minimize the pain after the procedure, like following all postoperative instructions provided by your medical professional and applying all prescribed or recommended topical creams and lotions to reduce inflammation and keep the skin moisturized. Your doctor will also discuss when to begin washing your face, and when it is safe to apply makeup.
Microneedling will last between three to five months, and patients are encouraged to schedule follow-up treatments at least twice a year for lasting results. Your doctor will also advise you to take good care of your skin and will offer an at-home beauty routine that will help maintain your results. Also avoiding too much sun will help keep your results more permanent. Doctors recommend SPF 55+ sunblock to protect your skin from UVC rays that cause melanoma and collagen damage.
Believe it or not, it only takes a day to heal from microneedling. It might also take up to two to three days, depending on the treatment. Most patients are able to return to work and wear makeup one day following the procedure.
