Our Newport Beach Microneedling is a skin care trend that has people talking. Can creating tiny holes in the surface of the skin really do incredible things for your face? The answer is yes, as performed by a qualified health care professional at ADV, microneedling produces impressive improvements in facial skin quality, and is an effective, minimally-invasive treatment for a range of skin problems.
Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the surface layer of the skin. Creating these micro-injuries stimulates the body’s own natural wound healing response. The result is increased production of collagen and elastin, cell turnover, and reducing or warding off the visible signs of aging.
Stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen is the most vital way to improve the appearance of the skin, and it goes far beyond minimizing the appearance of wrinkles. Increasing collagen growth with microneedling can help:
An anesthetic cream will applied to the treatment area to ensure your comfort during the procedure. When the skin has been numbed, the microneedling device is rolled over the targeted area, creating tiny punctures in the surface of the skin.
The microneedling process typically takes less than half an hour. You can expect mild redness, similar to a sunburn, after treatment. Redness will subside and the skin will appear normal within a few days after the procedure. Results will appear gradually as the body produces more collagen over the following weeks and months.
Patients typically require more than one treatment to achieve the optimal results of microneedling. Depending on the skin issues and areas being treated, 3 to 6 treatments may be needed. Treatments are scheduled approximately three weeks to one month apart.
Microneedling is a well-tolerated procedure with few side effects and minimal downtime that can be performed virtually anywhere on the body. Collagen induction therapy is an effective minimally-invasive treatment for:
