If you’re seeking to enhance the texture and radiance of your skin, look no further than microneedling. This innovative cosmetic procedure utilizes a specialized device to create micro-injuries in the skin, sparking collagen production and resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin.
Also known as collagen induction therapy, it’s a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves using a device with extremely fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. This process triggers the body’s natural healing response, increasing collagen production and enhancing skin texture.
Allegany Aesthetics & Wellness Center utilizes state-of-the-art microneedling devices to ensure safe and effective treatments. Prior to your treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to reduce any potential discomfort.
During the procedure, the microneedling device will be passed over the skin, creating tiny punctures. You may experience a mild sensation similar to that of a mild sunburn. Most treatments take approximately 30 minutes to complete.
Following your microneedling treatment, you may experience some redness and mild swelling, which should subside within a day or two. It’s critical to avoid sun exposure and wear a high-SPF sunscreen for several days after your treatment.
