Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves using a unique device with very fine needles which create tiny punctures directly in the top layer of the skin. These small punctures trigger the body’s healing process, which leads to increased production of collagen and new cell growth. This can help reduce or eliminate certain signs of aging and improve various other skin issues, such as scarring, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, and more. Patients who visit our team at Rx MD Solutions in Plano, TX, may want to learn more about this treatment if they would like to address imperfections of the skin that may be bothersome or difficult to disguise with cosmetics.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling may be an appropriate treatment option for people who have uneven skin tone and texture, mild to moderate acne scars or wrinkles, stretch marks on their chest or abdomen, or certain other common skin concerns. Microneedling is a versatile treatment and can be customized based on each patient’s unique needs and goals for their skin.
How Should I Prepare for My Microneedling Appointment?
Before your microneedling appointment, keep your skin well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water and applying moisturizer regularly. If you use any topical products on your face, you will want to stop using them at least 24 hours prior to your visit time so that they do not affect the results of your treatment. You should also avoid sun exposure, excessive sweating, and exercise in the days leading up to your appointment, as advised by Shanon Crisp. Following your procedure, you may need to follow special instructions such as avoiding makeup and not touching your face. Your provider can provide you with more specific information about how to prepare for your appointment.
What Can I Expect During My Microneedling Treatment?
Microneedling is performed using a device that has many very fine needles on its surface. The skin is cleaned, and then the device is gently pressed against the skin to create tiny punctures through which a topical solution may be applied. This stimulates collagen production, induces new cell growth, and improves blood circulation in the treated area, leading to smoother and younger-looking skin. A special serum or other solution may also be used during microneedling, depending on your unique needs and goals for your treatment.
