Increase Collagen Production with Microneedling
As we age, the production of collagen in our skin begins to decline. With less collagen to keep our skin looking plump and youthful, skin imperfections become more noticeable. To combat this inevitable process, our licensed esthetician in Aurora is expertly trained to perform microneedling. This technique uses sterile hypodermic needles that deliver thousands of micro-injuries to the skin in order to initiate the body’s wound healing process. The body begins to break down damaged tissue and produce healthy new cells. These cells repair and remodel the injured tissue, producing organized, healthy dermal tissue such as collagen and elastin. The result is healthy, radiant, more even-textured and toned skin.
Dr. Serota uses the only FDA approved microneedling device called the SkinPen®. The SkinPen® is generally comfortable with the use of topical numbing cream, and only takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. This treatment is safe for all skin types, any time of the year, and addresses a multitude of skin concerns. This treatment also allows your home skincare products to penetrate and work more effectively.
Skin Conditions Improved by Microneedling
Our microneedling process in Aurora can minimize the appearance of:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Acne scars
- Large pores
- Loss of elasticity and skin thickness
- Uneven skin tone/texture
Because this is a minimally-invasive procedure, it is important to choose a professional who has undergone extensive training in microneedling. Making the right choice for treatment is important to reduce the risk of complications or side effects such as bleeding, swelling or infection.
Skin Types for Microneedling
Microneedling is suitable for all skin types.
Recovery Times & Results for Microneedling
Your skin may appear red and slightly swollen or bruised for 24-48 hours after treatment. After about a week, you should notice smoother, more radiant skin; however, it may take 1 month to see the full results. We typically recommend that people have a microneedling treatment every 4-6 weeks, if needed. Your unique treatment plan will be based on the severity of your skin condition and your overall aesthetic goals.
