Microneedling treatments in Houston, Texas are becoming one of the most popular skin care treatments performed. Microneedling is a safe and effective way to reduce wrinkles and treat scars without heat or ablation. Microneedling uses a process known as automated microneedling which creates thousands of microscopic channels in the skin in order to induce collagen. Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) makes use of the body's natural response to healing in order to increase the collagen and elastin in the skin. Collagen and elastin are naturally found in the skin, and they help give the skin a healthy glow and more youthful appearance.
How does it work?
The microscopic channels created by the Pen allow the body's natural healers, blood, serum, and lymph, to leak into surrounding areas in a controlled manner. These tiny, microscopic "injuries" are enough to initiate the wound healing cascade, allowing the skin to heal itself from the inside. The microscopic channels also allow the skin to absorb topical creams, gels, and serums more effectively, allowing for superior results with minimal downtime.
FUN FACTS TO KNOW
Fact 1: Microneedling is Ideal for a variety of skin types
Microneedling is ideal for anyone looking to improve their skin’s appearance and complexion. It is effective on both dark or light skin, people of all ages, dry or oily skin and even individuals with skin pigmentation issues. No matter what your skin is like, you can reap the benefits of microneedling, such as lifting and tightening, lessening skin discoloration and reduce pore size, among many other advantages.
Fact 2: Microneedling can lead to immense improvements
Do you know that Microneedling was actually discovered in the 1950s by a doctor who realized that by creating small injuries in the skin, collagen production was promoted within the body. This led to stronger skin and better skin texture. Since then, the technology related to microneedling has greatly improved. Both the techniques and tools have advanced over the decades making the procedure very safe and effective when administered by a trained professional.
Fact 3: Microneedling is not just for your face
Microneedling is most commonly applied to the face, however, the procedure can be performed on other parts of the body too. Individuals with stretch marks and scars have used microneedling to lessen the appearance of these marks on their body. This is because the procedure promotes the body to heal itself by producing and sending collagen to the treated area.
Fact 4: Microneedling can lead to promising results
Right after your first treatment, you will notice a bit of redness which clears up rather quickly. Once your skin clears up, you’ll notice an immediate dewy, glowy complexion and new plumpness to your skin. It is important to keep the skin hydrated over the course of a few days to restore the cells.
Microneedling can safely be repeated every 4 to 6 weeks until desired results are achieved. After four sessions spaced roughly one month apart, individuals have reported a big increase in collagen and elastin within 6 months of completing all the procedures. By using microneedling, you can have confidence in the results so long as you’re patient.
Fact 5: Microneedling is actually very affordable
In fact, if you compare the pricing for microneedling versus other laser and co2 fractional laser treatments, you will realise that microneedling is not only affordably priced but also has a very negligable downtime. The results delivered by microneedling can also be seen quickly and that is why microneedling is fast becoming a treatment of choice.
What are the benefits?
Microneedling results in a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improvement in pigment, and overall more youthful-appearing skin. The induction of collagen results in fewer signs of aging giving a fresher appearance and glow to the skin. Microneedling helps to diminish hyperpigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars, and stretch marks. It is considered a safe procedure for all skin types.
What can you expect?
The procedure feels similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. In most areas, there is minimal discomfort, though some areas of the skin are more sensitive than others. The use of topical numbing cream, the speed of the needles, and the hydrating gels uses help make the treatment very tolerable and virtually painless. Downtime is minimal, and recovery is quick. The first two days, patients can expect redness, almost as with a sunburn. Most people heal completely within 2-4 days, although some patients report the redness fading as quickly as 24 hours. Patients who have undergone the procedure should avoid wearing makeup and sunscreen for the first two days, so sun avoidance is extremely important. After that, you can resume your usual topical regimen.
When will results be visible?
Results will begin to be visible about a week after the treatment, and they will continue to improve over the weeks following the treatment. Results can continue to improve for up to 6 months following the treatment. Patients typically receive 3 to 4 treatments, but some may need up to 6 sessions spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart. Patients with very deep scarring or wrinkles are more likely to need extra sessions. When combined with other cosmetic procedures, results are even better.
