Natural skincare treatments are great, but there’s no denying that sometimes all-natural treatments simply aren’t as effective as other options. However, this isn’t always the case. With micro needling, you can achieve your aesthetic goals and give your skin a radiant and healthy glow. Here at Live Medspa in Miami, FL, we offer this treatment (also called collagen induction therapy) to our patients so they can have gorgeous, glowing skin with an all-natural treatment method.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling, which is also called collagen induction therapy, is an all-natural skincare treatment that triggers the body’s collagen production. It uses your body’s own natural regenerative properties to rejuvenate, heal, and refresh your skin. We can perform this treatment right in-office, and you’ll be absolutely thrilled with the results since most of our patients see a noticeable difference right after their first treatment session.
How Does It Work?
As we age, our skin starts to deteriorate. The aging process can have a profound effect on the appearance and youthfulness of your skin. To keep skin looking youthful and plump, you need to increase collagen production. Once production decreases, your skin will suffer. First, fine lines develop, and then inevitably turn into deep wrinkles.
This treatment works by triggering new collagen production, using tiny microneedles within a handheld device. These microneedles create tiny furrows in the skin that are called micro-channels. Your body then responds to these tiny injuries on your skin by creating more collagen in your skin and the treatment area.
Can People With Healthy Skin Get This Treatment?
Microneedling can be used on both problematic and healthy skin. If you do have skin problems, you will definitely see a noticeable improvement in those issues immediately after your treatment session. It can also help improve skin conditions that are challenging or impossible to treat at home.
However, if you have healthy skin, you’ll still be able to receive this treatment and enjoy the dramatic results. Some of the most common skin conditions this treatment can help includes:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Excess skin from drastic weight loss
- Poor complexion
- Dull skin tone
- Acne and other scars
- Acne-prone skin
What Is the Treatment Process Like?
You can combine microneedling with other cosmetic treatments as well. The exact procedure varies based on what treatments you’re getting. Generally, it starts with a cleanser and then the aesthetician starts the process across your skin. Essentially, it’s just tiny needles that move in and out repeatedly in a stamping motion, sort of like a tattoo gun. After we’ve treated every area of your skin, we then use nutrient-rich serums that will give your skin deep hydration.
How Long Is a Treatment Session?
Every patient is different, and the length of your treatment session depends on the area of the body you’re treating and whether you’re getting any other treatments at the same time. However, you can expect that the treatment session will generally take about as long as a facial.
What Does This Treatment Feel Like?
You might be scared because this treatment name has the word “needle” in it, but don’t worry, it’s completely painless. Before you even begin your treatment, we’ll apply a local numbing agent. This ensures that there will be no pain whatsoever. You’ll be able to feel the sensation of the needle moving across your skin, but there won’t be any pain.
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
You’ll begin to notice the results from this treatment gradually. First, you’ll see that your skin’s appearance has improved directly after your treatment session, because of the increased blood flow and oxygen flow to the area. However, increasing collagen production takes a bit of time.
You’ll see a gradual improvement in your skin as your body begins to produce more collagen. Then, as the weeks go by, you’ll see even more improvement in your skin. You’ll see the best results anywhere from a few weeks to a few months after your treatment session.
Are the Results Permanent?
The results from this treatment are semi-permanent and can last for months at a time. As we said, you can enjoy collagen production in the weeks following your first treatment session. Once your body starts to produce more collagen, you will enjoy results that last for months. As soon as you notice the collagen boost start to fade a little bit, you can schedule a follow-up treatment session and rejuvenate and refresh your skin all over again.
What Are the Benefits of This Treatment?
This treatment offers many different benefits. It’s effective because it relies on the natural regenerative powers of the body to improve your skin and boost collagen. You can also combine it with other anti-aging cosmetic treatments, which will increase its effectiveness and improve your skin even more.
It’s an All-Natural Treatment
This treatment method is entirely natural. It uses the body itself to produce effective results, as your tissues respond to the micro-injuries created by the tiny needles. There’s no surgery, harsh chemicals, or irritating ingredients that will bother your skin.
There’s No Downtime Required
Many of the skincare and anti-aging treatments available on the market today require painful downtime that requires you to reschedule your work and home life. This treatment doesn’t require any downtime at all.
You’ll only have to follow some simple directions after your treatment session is completed. This is to ensure that your skin gets the proper treatment to encourage rapid healing. However, most people resume their everyday activities immediately after a treatment session.
You Can Combine It with Other Treatments
One great part about this treatment is that you can combine it with other anti-aging cosmetic treatment options for greater effectiveness. You can also use this treatment for PRP therapy, otherwise known as platelet-rich plasma therapy, which provides dramatic and noticeable results for your skin. You’ll get the most benefits when you use PRP in combination with this revolutionary treatment.
Skincare Products Will Work Better
After you undergo this treatment, you’ll find that all of your skincare products will work so much better. Your skin will feel soft and smooth, and it will allow deeper hydration than you can normally get. This treatment is the perfect way to get the beautiful, glowing skin you want.
