When home skin care products are no longer effective, but you don't want surgery, consider minimally invasive treatments to rejuvenate the skin, such as microneedling.
Our Allura Aesthetics team is happy to perform microneedling (collagen induction therapy) with the advanced SkinPen® technology at our office in Boynton Beach, FL. Microneedling uses several fine-gauge needles to effectively and safely create micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries trigger the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that increase the overall health and appearance of your complexion. Easily combined with other treatments, like vitamin serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma), microneedling can help minimize scars, stretch marks, and pores. Schedule a consultation at Allura Aesthetics to discover more about the results of microneedling and how to customize your procedure for your skin needs and goals.
You could benefit from microneedling treatments if you have light or mild complexion issues, like a decrease in firmness or uneven texture. Microneedling treatments may also reduce the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and pores. You should be willing to wait a while before seeing improvements from your microneedling treatment because the collagen and elastin will need some time to have an effect on the skin, but you will have results that look natural and gain healthier overall skin.
Microneedling is performed in a treatment room in around 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or local anesthesia if desired, but most patients report little or no pain and discomfort.
The areas of skin being addressed will be cleaned before the advanced SkinPen microneedling handpiece is passed evenly over. Once the microneedling is performed, a treatment, like PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or a vitamin-infused serum, may be applied so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be massaged in along with sun protection because the treated skin will be sensitive after the procedure.
Following the procedure, you may experience mild redness and swelling for about one day; however, this should resolve quickly on its own. It may take around 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin levels increase before you see significant improvements in the appearance and health of your skin. You should plan to get around 4 – 6 follow-up treatments performed every 4 – 6 weeks for ideal results and long-term skin benefits.
