Microneedling is an anti-aging skin treatment that relies on your body’s regenerative powers to create beautiful results. It’s a great treatment for those men and women who want noticeable results but aren’t quite ready for lasers or surgery.
The process works by using a special medical device to create thousands of tiny punctures in your skin. Each one of those tiny injuries triggers your natural healing reaction. As your body rushes to repair the damage, a new layer collagen is created.
Collagen is the thick layer of padding that gives your face those rounded contours associated with youth. As the years pass, you naturally lose much of that collagen, and your body doesn’t replace those cells.
That leaves your skin to sag and pool, creating lines, wrinkles, and folds. Microneedling helps reverse that process by stimulating cellular regeneration.
One of the reasons microneedling has become so popular is the fact that treatments can improve many different skin complaints. Some of the issues this approach can improve include:
Few treatments offer improvements in so many areas with just one simple technique.
Most men and women tolerate microneedling well. There’s no need for anesthesia, although Dr. Sohrab can provide a topical numbing cream if you have especially sensitive skin.
You may feel a slight stinging sensation as the device moves across the surface of your skin. In the hours after your session, you might notice some mild swelling, bruising, redness, and discomfort. Over-the-counter pain medications and cold compresses can help, and your body will quickly adjust and heal.
