Microneedling Q & A
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a new and innovative skin treatment method that is growing wildly popular in the field of aesthetic medicine. During a microneedling procedure, Dr. Capaldi uses tiny needles to make punctures in your skin that jump-start your body’s healing response. The small injuries trick your body into continuing the healing of old scars and blemishes.
After a microneedling treatment, your skin produces extra collagen to continue improving your skin. Collagen is a protein that gives your skin structure and vivacity. You produce less of it as you age, but a microneedling procedure can combat some of the ways that this collagen loss impacts your skin.
What improvements can microneedling make to my skin?
Microneedling improves your skin in many ways. It’s a great minimally invasive treatment option for you if you have:
- Wrinkles and lines
- Loose skin
- Acne or acne scars
- Other scars
- Dark spots
- Skin discoloration
- Stretch marks
- Redness or rosacea
After a few microneedling sessions, you notice touchable smoothness and a fresh glow for your skin. It may take a few months for you to see the full results of your microneedling procedure, but the improvements are well worth the wait.
Does microneedling hurt?
Dr. Capaldi applies a numbing cream to your skin before he starts your microneedling. You may still feel some tolerable discomfort, but you shouldn’t experience any pain.
After your procedure, you might experience a few uncomfortable side effects. Common side effects are:
These side effects are mild and usually subside within a couple of days. If you’re in pain or notice more severe side effects like burning, call Dr. Capaldi immediately.
How long do the results of microneedling last?
Each person’s skin is unique and maintains the results of the treatment differently. Since microneedling employs your body’s natural healing and rejuvenating processes, your skin improves and looks great for months after each session.
When you notice your skin looking dry, dull, or blemished, it may be time for a follow-up session. In fact, most patients don’t reach their ideal skin until they’ve undergone multiple microneedling sessions. Dr. Capaldi helps you create a treatment plan to maintain your flawless skin.
Fantastic looking skin isn’t just for celebrities and skilled makeup enthusiasts. For a fresh glow for your skin, call Diamante Medical Skin Care or schedule your consultation for microneedling online today.
