Microneedling Tampa, Florida
Activate the natural restorative process of your skin through microneedling. This nonsurgical treatment transforms damaged skin into smooth, healthy tissue. From wrinkles to scars, microneedling can heal your skin and help you get what you once had – or the skin you wish you had! This form of skin rejuvenation has gained popularity for its minimal recovery time and impressive results.
Microneedling is an FDA approved treatment for fine lines, wrinkles, scars, hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, stretch marks, sagging, sun damage, large pores, and uneven skin texture. You will also see an overall improvement in the appearance of your skin. If the term “microneedle” doesn’t scare you off, you can reap the benefits of this treatment with little to no effort on your part.
The Process of Microneedling
First, a numbing cream is put on your skin to limit any discomfort felt during the procedure. Afterward, a hyaluronic and vitamin C solution is applied to the area you wish to treat. The microneedling pin is then pressed lightly on your skin until it has been brushed over the entire area.
The microneedling pin makes controlled micro-injuries on the surface of your skin. This encourages collagen production and the natural process of healing. The pin also distributes the vitamins and hyaluronic acid in the solution directly into your skin. What is hyaluronic acid? It’s found in your skin and naturally keeps your skin healthy and moist. Microneedling may last 15 to 30 minutes, depending on how large the area being treated is.
If any of that sounds stressful, don’t worry. Microneedling creates only light discomfort in certain areas of your face. It will be slightly more uncomfortable with boney areas such as the skin around your cheekbones. When the microneedling pin passes over the treated area, it will feel similar to sandpaper lightly moving across the surface of your skin. Don’t be surprised if there is some light bleeding.
As soon as treatment is over, you can begin to see a new glow to your skin. As the weeks and days go on, your skin will continue to improve and the initial swelling will go down. You can see results up to 6 months after treatment as collagen production continues over time. Those are great results for a treatment that has such minimal downtime.
Number of Treatments Needed
The number of treatments needed will depend on the work you would like done. Some treatment plans will only require one treatment a year to see attended results. Most clients will want to have 2 to 3 treatments, 6 to 8 weeks apart. For deep wrinkles and scarring, you should look into having 6 or 8 sessions done.
For the first 24 hours after treatment, avoid the sun, makeup, sunscreens, retinoids, etc. For the first 48 hours after treatment, you should only use a gentle cleanser with lukewarm water. It is recommended that you pat the treated area dry. Only gentle cleansers and skin care products should be used for the first 3 days.
