Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen production to improve the look and strength of your skin. Collagen is a structural protein in your dermal layer of skin, responsible for your skin’s youthful resilience.
Collagen production declines as you get older, contributing to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling helps rebuild the collagen layer, restoring a more youthful look.
SkinPen is a microneedling device equipped with thin, tiny needles. Your aesthetic specialist at Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center uses the SkinPen device to create microtears in the surface layer of your skin.
These microtears simulate an injury without damaging your skin. The injury triggers the skin’s healing process, boosting collagen production.
The team at Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center uses microneedling to treat acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation on the face, neck, and chest.
The team at Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center wants you to feel as comfortable as possible during your microneedling and customizes your plan to match your needs and goals.
Your provider applies a numbing lotion to your skin before your session to minimize discomfort. You may feel some pressure during your treatment but no pain. A microneedling session typically takes 20-30 minutes.
You may have some skin redness and swelling after your microneedling treatment, but these side effects resolve within a few days. Your skin may also flake during the healing process. Your aesthetic specialist gives you at-home care instructions to support the healing process.
You may see improvements in your skin soon after your first microneedling treatment. However, the skin needs time to rebuild collagen, and you may not see the final results for several weeks.
The team at Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center recommends a series of 6-8 microneedling treatments every six weeks to get the best aesthetic outcomes.
Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center also offers radiofrequency (RF) microneedling for those seeking more dramatic results with less healing time.
Microneedling naturally improves your skin’s tone and texture, restoring a more youthful look. Call Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center today or schedule a consultation online to learn more about microneedling.
