Everyone deals with aging eventually, but what if we told you there is a safe, noninvasive option for minimizing wrinkles that won’t require surgery and doesn’t cause a long list of side effects and issues? Microneedling, a popular treatment for wrinkles and other signs of aging, can help to turn back the clock and give you glowing, youthful skin!
Our highly experienced Medical Aesthetician, as well as the rest of our team at Laughlin Plastic Surgery, would love to give you the skinny on all of our cosmetic services, especially microneedling, which our patients love and offers an impressive opportunity to see decreased signs of aging without serious surgery.
Microneedling is a newer approach for treating aging skin that offers patients a clearer, younger complexion without surgery. Microneedling can affect the skin in many ways, including
Microneedling works with the use of a handheld device that our Aesthetician rolls over the skin. This is a painless procedure as numbing cream is applied before the procedure begins. The device acts as it sounds, pricking the skin very lightly with extremely small needles to jumpstart collagen production underneath. The surface of the skin also tightens and firms to treat the microtraumas, which smooths and softens the skin.
There are several reasons why microneedling is such a fantastic option for those with aging skin. For one, the treatment is incredibly versatile. It can be used on people with all different skin tones and textures, and it can minimize a host of issues from acne to scarring to wrinkles to hyperpigmentation. If you are dealing with multiple skin problems you are hoping to treat all at once, microneedling is a great option.
Besides, microneedling is extremely safe and gentle on the skin. While it does create very small points of trauma, it has few risks and side effects. Most people who do experience side effects are faced only with a mild irritation after the procedure, and this usually disappears in a day or two.
Finally, the procedure can be spaced out into four to six sessions, each of which occurs about a month apart to see the best results. However, you’re likely to see impressive results, such as tighter, smoother, and more evenly toned skin, after just one treatment. In general, though, we recommend a full treatment regimen for the most effective and long-lasting results.
Microneedling is a very effective option for the treatment of wrinkles and other signs of aging. It is our go-to choice for patients who want to see a younger, more vibrant face when they look in the mirror but do not want to resort to more intensive, higher-risk treatments.
