Microneedling is a potent treatment designed to enhance the quality and youthfulness of your skin. Patients can safely receive treatment every four to six weeks until they achieve the results that they want.
How many treatments you receive depends on your goals. Patients seeking scar reduction typically require between three and six independent sessions. Those looking to stimulate collagen production for plumping and firming the skin should begin with three treatments and then consult with us to see if they require more.
What is Microneedling?
As we get older, our skin accumulates damage from multiple sources, including the aging process, acne, UV, and diet. Microneedling is a technique that seeks to reverse this process by unlocking the skin’s latent rejuvenation potential.
When you come to Colorado Skin & Vein for microneedling, a member of our team will glide a device over your skin that penetrates it with microscopic needles up to 2 mm in depth. Wounding the skin cells stresses them, causing them to behave in a more youthful manner, increasing the production of skin-plumping agents like collagen and elastin. In the days and weeks following treatment, skin appears plumped, firmed, and thickened.
Patients typically seek microneedling to deal with skin ailments like acne scarring, surgical scarring, stretch marks, large pores, and keloid scars. Before you receive treatment, we will often apply collagen-stimulating products such as vitamin C or hyaluronic acid. We may also include a skin lightener if that is a part of your cosmetic goals.
Numbing creams can also be applied, which reduces any discomfort that you might feel.
You will most likely start to notice the benefits of the procedure immediately. After that, the SkinPen® stimulates collagen production for up to six months, making your complexion appear more youthful with fewer visible imperfections.
Optimal Microneedling Schedule
Our team at Colorado Skin & Vein will consult with you about your optimal microneedling timetable. Most patients typically receive thirty-minute sessions spaced four to six weeks apart, but the total number of treatments you require will depend on the nature of your skin problems. Some patients may find that three treatments are sufficient, while others may require up to half a dozen.
