Have you suffered from acne or burn scars? Do you have enlarged pores? Perhaps you’ve dealt with loose or discolored skin. All of these conditions, and more, can be improved with a process called “microneedling.”

What is Microneedling?

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a procedure in which small needles are used to puncture the skin repeatedly. This process helps the body produce collagen to fill in holes, giving the skin a smoother and healthier appearance. This procedure can address problems with the skin caused by scarring, stretching, excessive sun exposure, injury, or aging.

Reasons to Consider Microneedling

Microneedling is Gentler Than Other Treatments:

Microneedling is a less harsh treatment because it does not remove the top layer of skin as other treatments can. In contrast, microneedling is often used to treat smaller areas of the skin to more accurately target where the damage has occurred. Microneedling can also treat problems deeper under the skin. Recovery time is shorter and the post-treatment care routine is less intensive. Patients are recommended to use a combination of a gentle cleanser and a hydrating hyaluronic acid to protect their skin after treatments.

Microneedling is a Great Solution for Addressing Specific Problems:

The process of microneedling is safe, effective, and customizable. After a consultation, Dr. Nakamura’s team will know which type of treatment to use, the length of each treatment, and how many treatments will be needed to give you the best results possible. Redness is to be expected following treatment, and will shortly subside. There are other, less common risks to the treatment, however, they are minimal and not fatal. The most common risk is bruising which is rare and can be treated. Risk factors showcase why it is important to find a reputable provider, like Accent on You, to ensure you avoid complications.

Microneedling is Not Just for the Face:

Most people use microneedling for facial skin, but microneedling can be safely used on any part of the body with skin irregularities. Facial treatments take less time, but using microneedling on other parts of the body can help with issues like stretch marks or sagging skin. Other similar treatments are often only approved in a specific area of the body, but with microneedling, you can target all your problem areas at once.

Results That Last:

While microneedling can cause redness or minor irritation, the redness will fade in at most three days and the skin will even out. This process also reaches deeper and works more effectively than home treatments to give skin a healthy glow. Microneedling treatments build on top of each other, so each treatment creates results more beautiful than the last.

Additionally, microneedling is much more cost-effective than other skin treatments, which can cost up to four times as much. As a result, it is easier to have repeat treatments without infringing on your personal budget. At Accent On You, we offer financing options and accept multiple forms of payment.
