Dr. Jack Bertolino and his team at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics of Williamsville, NY, work with individuals to help them find treatment options that improve their skin’s appearance and overall health. Men and women considering facial treatments will find that traditional treatment methods can provide just as noticeable of results as laser therapies, which are also provided at our practice. We encourage our new and returning patients to take time to learn about microneedling, a skin treatment used to rejuvenate the appearance of the facial skin by activating the body’s own healing process.
What is microneedling?
The Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics team describes the microneedling procedure as a minimally to non-invasive skin-rejuvenation treatment involving the use of ultra-fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. In doing this, it stimulates the body’s natural healing process, which leads to the increased production of new collagen and elastin.
What can microneedling be used to treat?
Microneedling improves the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other skin concerns. It is typically used in combination with other treatments, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy or laser treatment.
Does microneedling hurt?
Most of our patients find that microneedling is only mildly uncomfortable. A topical numbing cream is applied to the skin before the procedure to help minimize any discomfort. It ensures that the patient is at ease during their treatment.
What is the recovery like after microneedling?
There is typically no downtime required after microneedling. You may experience some redness and swelling immediately after the procedure, but this should subside within a few hours. It is essential to avoid any sun exposure and wear sunscreen when outdoors to protect your skin during the healing process.
