We provide microneedling for Oklahoma City patients looking for a way to deal with frustrating sun damage and age signs. This non-surgical minimally invasive treatment has been clinically proven to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin.
Microneedling can correct a number of skin issues, including acne scars, sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and fine age lines. It also improves penetration of skincare products into the deeper skin layers, enhancing their benefits.
The Science Behind Microneedling
Microneedling involves the use of a device that contains numerous thin needles called microneedles. These create controlled microinjuries in the skin at various depths.
Microinjuries trigger the skin’s natural healing process. As a result, new collagen and elastin protein is created at an increased rate, tightening and revitalizing the skin.
Most patients are good candidates for a microneedling treatment session. The best candidates are patients looking to address a variety of skin conditions while restoring the beautiful and healthy appearance of their skin.
If you have active acne, open wounds, or active skin infections in the treatment areas, it will be important to address these before coming in for microneedling. If you are prone to keloid formation, this may not be an ideal treatment option for you.
To ensure that your beauty goals are met, you will need to communicate them to one of our skincare professionals. As part of a consultation, your skin will be examined to ensure that the treatment is right for you. Your medical history will also be discussed.
Your skincare expert will go over the details of microneedling to prepare you for the process. Feel free to ask any questions or voice any concerns at this time.
The Treatment Process
Microneedling typically takes around 30 minutes to perform. At the start of the session, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment regions. Once this takes effect, the skin will not experience any pain or discomfort.
Next, the microneedling device will be passed across the skin evenly, creating numerous microinjuries in the tissues. Finally, a serum will be administered to the treated areas to aid in calming the skin.
No recovery time or downtime is required after a microneeding treatment session. Aftercare directions will be provided and must be followed closely. Redness may be present for a time.
Do not take a shower until at least 72 hours have passed. It will also be important to avoid sun exposure, saunas, swimming pools, and workouts. Do not apply any makeup or use any exfoliating products until the skin has fully recovered.
Since the skin will be sensitive after a treatment, it will be more prone to sun damage than usual. Because of this, it will be important to use an SPF 30+ sunscreen on the treated areas. Moisturizing will also be key.
Multiple microneedling sessions will be needed to achieve optimal benefits. Typically, most patients require around three to six treatment sessions. The exact number will vary based on the depth and severity of the targeted skin imperfections.
Cost of Microneedling
Microneedling varies in price from case to case. Cost is dependent on details such as the patient’s aesthetic goals, the specific issues being addressed, and the number of areas being treated..
