The term “microneedling” may sound scary, but the process and results are anything but! It is a transformative treatment that can take years off your skin and leave you feeling (and looking) revitalized and refreshed. Keep reading to learn how True Skin Care Center in Chicago can breathe new life into your skin with this incredible technology.
But First, What Is It?
Microneedling is a non-invasive treatment involving the use of small needles penetrating the surface layer of the skin. This mild disturbance of the skin promotes collagen growth that leads to smoother and younger-looking skin. Of course before undergoing any treatment, it is important to discuss options with your doctor to find the best treatment plan for your specific needs.
The initial treatment uses small needles to prick the top layer of skin, encouraging skin cells to produce newer and healthier skin. Over subsequent treatments, longer needles may be used to penetrate deeper into the skin to enhance the healing effects of the treatment. Though it sounds unnerving, the treatment is safe and effective and will leave you with glowing, youthful skin fast.
Why Microneedling May Be Right for You
It Is an Easy Solution for Aging Skin
Growing older is an inescapable part of life, and skin can sometimes take the brunt of the normal wear-and-tear of aging. With this form of treatment, the surface of your skin can brighten up and be reborn. Wrinkles and scars can all but vanish and, as a whole, the treated area will be ready to stand another lifetime’s worth of wear.
It Is a Versatile Treatment
There are many parts of the body that can be targeted with this treatment. At our clinic, our most commonly treated areas include the face, neck, and hands. These are just some of the areas that can be improved, however. Feel free to discuss your aesthetic goals with one of our experts so we can help get you there!
It Is Quick and No-Hassle
While the total time from initial screening to completed treatment may vary based on your goals, typically our patients only need three to six sessions to reach their target. The process itself is straightforward and does not involve any special preparations, surgery, or lasers. After the treatment session, you are safe to go to work, run your errands, or do anything else you need to do without worry.
It Works on All Skin Types
No matter the color or type of your skin, microneedling can help you reach your desired look. Your skin type, be it dry or oily or somewhere in between, can play a factor in how many visits may be necessary to reach your desired results, however. Be sure to tell our specialist of any special concerns you may have regarding your skin, including conditions such as eczema and psoriasis so they can make a well-informed decision on your treatment needs.
It Gives Fast, Visible Results
Immediately after the initial treatment, many of our patients have reported small strides towards their targeted, more youthful skin. You can expect to see the benefits of the treatment for up to six months after your sessions. Though results may vary based on a variety of factors, it is a fast-track way to renewed skin.
There Is Little Downtime
Due to the surface nature of the process, the treatment will cause little detraction from your everyday life. If anything, you may experience some slight skin irritation or heightened sensitivity to touch. However, many patients are ready to get back to their normal daily routine immediately after treatment!
To be safe though, pack on the sunscreen and avoid picking or rubbing the treated area. If you experience any redness, it is okay to conceal it with topical makeup.
There Is Little Risk of Injury
The process does not use any chemical agents, lasers, or other harsh lights that may irritate or damage certain types of skin. The process involves progressively “ramping up” treatment over the course of several visits so specialists can monitor how your skin is reacting to the treatment and adjust care accordingly to keep your skin looking great and in good shape.
It Can Make Skin Blemishes Vanish
With this treatment, patients can expect visible damage to the skin, such as scars from acne, to be reduced. It also can reduce large pores and help fix discoloration or uneven skin tones. However, be aware this is not an acne treatment and should not be used in conjunction with some acne regimes. Consult with our specialist to make sure the best treatment is chosen.
It Is Cost-Effective Way to Enhance Your Skin
Compared to other more involved or specialized skin treatment options, microneedling can be a cheaper alternative with similar results. We have been able to streamline the treatment to offer life-changing results at a cost that is right for you. Give us a call or schedule an appointment for specific pricing information.
