People in San Antonio have many of the same skin problems as people in other parts of the country, with wind and pollutants being special concerns. Gone are the days when your main skin treatment choice was some form of surgery. Although those options are still available, many people opt for gentler forms of skin treatment that require less downtime and involve fewer potential complications. One such treatment is microneedling skin rejuvenation.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling involves the use of a special device that is passed over your skin repeatedly to create many micro-channels in your skin. While virtually invisible to the naked eye, these tiny micro-openings send your skin into a healing cascade that replaces old, damaged skin with fresh skin that displays fewer imperfections.
After a treatment at our office, your skin responds by forming new collagen fibers. In fact, one name for microneedling is Collagen Induction Therapy. These new collagen fibers help create new skin cells to replace the old ones. As a result, you will see fewer wrinkles, lines, scars, and other blemishes.
What Does the Treatment Involve?
The treatment is performed in the comfort of our office. Rather than using just one type of microneedling pen, we offer a number of options. The right method for you will depend on a variety of factors.
True side effects from this type of skin rejuvenation procedure are rare. Some inflammation and redness are to be expected. What you are actually seeing is a normal skin response to the microneedling process.
Most patients benefit from multiple treatment sessions. You will see some improvement after your first treatment. After waiting multiple weeks to allow for healing, you should notice additional improvements in your skin with another treatment. Problems like fine lines, wrinkles, blotches, and scars will begin fading over the course of the following weeks and months as your skin remodels itself.
