What Does Microneedling Do For Your Skin?


Has your skin stopped shining? Skin problems like this may bother you more than usual. As the signs of aging are coming near, more fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots get spotted on your skin. 

Microneedling is one of the best — and most professional — techniques to resolve all these issues. The treatment can guarantee you a healthy boost and good advantages for your skin. If you're interested in this idea, Spa Medica aesthetics will help and guide you through the process. 

Check out how microneedling can work for you and what other services you can explore for ideal skin aesthetic goals! 

Microneedling at Spa Medica

Microneedling is a treatment for skin rejuvenation used to get the body to make more collagen. It improves the skin's tone and texture, removes fine lines and wrinkles, reduces acne scars, and makes the skin less loose. 

During this treatment, micro-wounds are made on the skin to help your body heal and make new cells and collagen. Microneedling (Scar Revision) uses microneedling devices (also called "pens") to break fibrils or elastin collagen that has contracted and made depression scars or static rhytids. 

Microneedling treats things like acne scars, Grade III cellulite, and static rhytids and makes the skin on the face and body look younger. Most treatments lead to results that correct between 40 and 50% of the original problem. 

With Microneedling, you can make things look better with your:

  • Face

  • Arms

  • Legs

  • Neck

  • Decolletage

  • Abdomen

  • Hands

  • Back

How The Treatment Works at Spa Medica

When you come to our office for treatment, your healthcare provider will put a numbing cream on the affected area. The device is placed on the site in a certain way to ensure it is applied evenly. 

Depending on the size of the area to be treated, it can take up to 30 minutes to finish. We suggest putting a serum on your skin to help it heal and stay healthy. Because the microchannels let skincare products seep into the treated area, the results are better. 

During treatment, your skin will get smoother, firmer, and more, even as the tiny injuries are fixed. Collagen remodeling can take up to three months, so your results will keep getting better during this time. We suggest a few treatments for the best results.

Why Choose Microneedling?

A microneedling procedure usually takes between 30 and 60 minutes and doesn't hurt. It is liked by both patients and doctors because it is safe, works well, and the effects last.

Microneedling Side Effects

Microneedling is safe, but there are some things to think about. First, depending on the size and location of the area being treated, each microneedling session takes between 30 and 60 minutes.

Most people require three to six treatments for optimal results. Most treatments are spaced out every two to six weeks. While superficial results are quicker, it may take many weeks to realize the full effects of treatment.

Adults In Good Health Is Safe For Microneedling

Remember that the procedure requires your skin to be broken to initiate regeneration. Your skin may take a few days to heal completely, so this procedure is better for people who don't have trouble healing. 

If you have a skin or health problem that lasts for a long time, you should talk to your doctor about it. 

Not All Are Ideal Candidates

As we stated above, people who have had keloid scars, scleroderma, collagen vascular disease, fungal infections, eczema, or psoriasis in the past should not get microneedling. It is also not a good idea if you have a weak immune system, are pregnant, or are nursing.

Scarring and infections are rare side effects that can happen. The chance of getting an infection is low, but you should keep the area where the procedure was done clean. To make this as easy as possible, your doctor will give you written instructions.

Expect to be red after the procedure. Most of the time, this goes away in 24 hours. After each treatment, feeling tender to the touch is also expected. You may also feel tight after your treatment, especially on the first day or two. 

Due to the possibility of pinpoint bleeding during your procedure, you may also have bruising and scabs afterward. After 24 hours, your skin should feel and look normal; it should be mostly better after three days.

Microneedling Devices at Home

Microneedling (or derma-needling) rollers that you can use at home can be bought over the counter. A dermatologist should do the microneedling with more advanced tools for the best results. 

Your dermatologist can change the depth of the device so that it works well with the area of your skin being treated. For example, they can choose shorter needle depths around and longer ones to treat acne scars on the cheeks or stretch marks on the abdomen.

At-home microneedling devices also only affect the skin on the surface. They only go 0.25 mm deep into the skin's top layer, the stratum corneum or epidermis. 

Professional tools can go deeper (2 to 3 mm), reaching not only the epidermis but also the dermis, a deeper layer of skin. Professional machines are powered by electricity and push the microneedles into the skin in an even way. 

You must roll the barrel over your skin to make small holes for the ones you can use at home. These aren't likely to help with dermal remodeling. Still, they might help in other ways, like by exfoliating the skin and making it easier for topical medications to get in.
