This month, we have turned our attention to microneedling, one of the most in-demand
cosmetic treatments for the face on the market today. During microneedling treatments, a tool made up of multiple microscopic needles called a dermal roller is used to create tiny perforations on the skin. The result is healthier, smoother, more elastic facial skin. Continue reading for more information on what makes microneedling treatments at AYA™ so popular among our patients.
Perhaps the most amazing thing about microneedling at AYA™ is how versatile the treatment is. When performed by one of the experienced skincare professionals at AYA™, SkinPen® microneedling can be safely applied to all skin types and tones. This treatment uses growth factors to further enhance the facial rejuvenation results. Microneedling works by stimulating natural collagen production to aid the body’s healing capabilities. The new collagen produced during microneedling treatments can help patients reduce the appearance of a wide variety of facial imperfections including wrinkles, large pores, sagging skin, acne scarring, and more.
How do microneedling treatments fit into an overall skincare regimen?
One of the things our patients love about microneedling is its ability to complement other cosmetic treatments. Specifically, Sciton® Laser treatments. Packaging together microneedling with cosmetic laser treatments can help patients achieve even greater facial rejuvenation. By undergoing microneedling treatments between laser treatments, patients can get the most out of their skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments. We normally recommend taking 4 – 6 weeks between microneedling treatments, which is more than enough time to receive and recover from a laser treatment in between sessions.
How intensive is the recovery following a microneedling treatment?
Recovery is typically quite simple after a microneedling treatment at AYA™. Pain is minimal and very little downtime is needed for recovery. We apply a topical anesthetic cream before the treatment begins to minimize any potential discomfort. Some patients may experience some slight redness or bleeding following their microneedling treatment, but these effects are typically very brief, and the skin should fully recover after just a day or two. We strongly recommend applying sunscreen and avoiding excess sunlight in the days after your treatment.
Microneedling treatments at AYA™ can be an excellent way to restore the appearance of your face and achieve healthy, young-looking skin.
