Microneedling

At Amazingly Ageless, we offer microneedling treatments. Whether you struggle with mild to moderate acne scarring, sagginess, fine lines and wrinkles, or oversized pores, we can help. This noninvasive procedure will improve both the health and appearance of your skin.

What Is Microneedling?

With microneedling, a qualified physician uses a handheld device designed with multiple tiny needles. When applied, the needles penetrate the skin but only to 2 mm or less. By creating wounds just below the outer surface of the skin, the body naturally reacts by producing both elastin fibers and collagen. That causes the skin to look fuller, which, in turn, reduces the appearance of imperfections, like lines and wrinkles, scars, and more. This procedure also improves blood flow to the treated area.

How Does Microneedling Work?

When you arrive for your appointment at Amazingly Ageless, an assistant will first clean and numb your skin using a topical anesthetic. Often, we also use a vitamin C serum, skin lightener, or collagen-stimulating product or a combination of more than one. The physician then slides the microneedle device across the skin, creating small wounds.

If necessary, the physician can adjust the speed of the device and the depth the needles go to allow for better absorption of the substances. Following the procedure, the doctor will apply either hyaluronic acid or a vitamin C serum to encourage fast healing and to hydrate the skin.

Depending on the skin condition and its severity, you may require more than one microneedling session. At Amazingly Ageless, a physician can safely repeat this procedure every four to six weeks as needed. Although you might see improvement after one treatment, it typically takes a minimum of three sessions to stimulate collagen, whereas for acne scars, it can take up to six. Regardless, we spread each treatment out four to six weeks.

Does Microneedling Cause Any Side Effects?

For a few hours after having a microneedling treatment, slight skin inflammation is common. You can also expect some redness that feels like a sunburn, but that too will go away in two to three days. In roughly one to two weeks, smoother and more radiant skin will emerge. However, it will take about two to three months for you to enjoy the optimum results of this skin rejuvenation treatment.

Who Makes a Good Candidate?

As a noninvasive, nonchemical, and nonallergenic procedure, most men and women can enjoy the benefits of microneedling without any risk of side effects. Besides the face, this treatment works incredibly well on the scalp, neck, and body. A significant advantage is that unlike some other skin rejuvenation procedures, a physician can perform microneedling on all skin types without post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation developing.

Recapture Youthful Skin

With microneedling, lines and wrinkles will disappear, skin texture will improve, and oversized pores and acne scarring will begin to fade.
