When you hear the term “microneedling” you may want to run for the hills when imagining hundreds of tiny needles being injected into your skin. However, the actual process of microneedling is a lot less dramatic than the name suggests and it will give you results that will have you glad you never ran up that hill. This article will discuss a few of the benefits of microneedling and why you may want to consider it. Read on to learn more.
How Does It Work?
The best part about the microneedling procedure is that unlike your nightmares where you look like Hellraiser, microneedling is done using a device that looks like a pen. By moving the pen across your face, hundreds of tiny microscopic holes will be made without causing you very much— if any— pain in the process.
Once the holes have been made, your skin will naturally work to repair itself. In the process of repair, your skin will produce more collagen and elasticity— helping to fill in fine lines and wrinkles across your face and forehead.
What Is the Procedure Like?
As a non-invasive procedure, you will be able to come into Jack Bertolino’s office and get the treatment done in less than an hour. Plus, because it is non-invasive, there won’t be a need for any anesthesia. If you do start to feel uncomfortable during your microneedling procedure, we can apply a topical numbing gel to help ease the pain. Once the procedure is done, you will notice a bit of redness but should be able to get back to your daily activities.
What Are Results Like?
One of the biggest things to know about microneedling is that the more frequently you get it done, the greater the results you will receive. The great news though is that most patients start to see real results after just one treatment. Most patients start to see an improvement in their skin’s texture, less visible wrinkles, less visible scars, and an overall improvement in pigmentation.
Microneedling is a fast and easy way to help improve your complexion. If you would like to learn more about microneedling or if you would like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jack Bertolino, contact our office today!
