As we age, our skin goes through stages of damage. You may experience sun damage, damage from acne, or simple aging. There are a number of treatments available for smoothing out the skin and giving it a fresh, radiant look, but one of the best options for skin resurfacing is microneedling. Microneedling is a minimally invasive, all natural procedure that can smooth out skin and give it a more youthful appearance.
What is Microneedling?
Unlike other skin resurfacing treatments, microneedling does not remove any layers of the skin. Instead, a pen with many small needles is applied to the face or target areas. The small punctures do not cause pain or bleeding, but they do stimulate the skin’s repair response. As the needles puncture the skin, the body is prompted to produce more collagen and elastin to repair the skin. This collagen and elastin will firm up your skin, making it radiant and glowing, and smooth out fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.
Microneedling is better than other skin resurfacing procedures because it is a short appointment with no down time. You may experience some slight swelling or redness immediately following the procedure, but this resolves quickly. You can wear oil-free makeup immediately after your procedure and go back to your daily routine after your appointment. It is a good idea to schedule microneedling at least a few days before any event, although it is not necessary to do it weeks in advance like with other skin resurfacing procedures.
Why Hermann Aesthetics & Wellness?
Hermann Aesthetics & Wellness uses the revolutionary Bellus pen for microneedling. In addition, we combine microneedling with PRP therapy. PRP, or platelet rich plasma, can be applied to the face after microneedling to further enhance collagen and elastin production and speed healing of the skin after the procedure.
