Our patients in Virginia Beach set the bar high when it comes to what they expect from skin rejuvenation treatments. While traditional cosmetic surgery is as effective as ever, a growing number of people are turning to minimally-invasive treatments like microneedling that require no incisions or extensive downtime.
One reason that minimally-invasive techniques are growing in popularity is because they offer the advantage of real results that do not involve total skin destruction or disruption. Microneedling treatments only affect the skin to a pinpoint degree and rely upon your body’s own restorative abilities to create new skin tissue to minimize signs of aging, sun damage, and more.
A Closer Look at Microneedling Treatments
Microneedling treatments involve the safe delivery of controlled skin channels to the surface layers of skin. As intimidating as it may sound, the technique involves very limited skin manipulation at a microscopic level. This triggers the formation of new collagen production by your own body, leading to results that are very natural and gradual.
Your microneedling treatment begins with a complete cleansing and preparation of the skin in the area of treatment. Our professional will then gently glide a special device over your skin repeatedly. This ultimately triggers a self-repair process occurring over the following weeks and months.
This treatment can benefit you in multiple ways. It has been proven to be safe and effective for the treatment of lines and wrinkles, scars of various types, enlarged pores, dull skin complexion, hyperpigmentation, and stretch marks. Whatever skin problem you are dealing with, microneedling can almost certainly improve it.
One key advantage to undergoing a microneedling treatment is that no incisions are necessary. Since less damage is done to the outer layers of your skin, your recovery time will be minimal. In fact, most patients are able to go back to work or daily activities immediately after their procedure.
Multiple Treatments for Additional Gains
Most patients benefit from multiple microneedling treatment sessions. You just need to wait a set amount of time between each session so that your skin can completely heal. Each additional session will build upon the results of previous ones. For many, this cumulative and gradual improvement in the skin condition is one of the most appealing aspects of the procedure.
