Microneedling and Skin Rejuvenation at Your Premier Naples, FL Medical Spa
Are you hearing any buzz about “collagen induction therapy?”
Probably not, so let’s rephrase that: “Are you hearing any buzz about ‘microneedling?’”
If you answered “yes,” you will likely enjoy the skin rejuvenation procedures and therapies offered at medical spas, such as those provided by Naples, Florida-based Tru Glō Medspa. As such, you know that microneedling—aka collagen induction therapy—is emerging as a popular minimally invasive procedure for basic skin rejuvenation as well as a treatment to correct specific skin conditions.
Part of this buzz can be attributed to numerous recent clinical trials and studies that support the treatment’s efficacy. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) only began regulating microneedling procedures and devices in the past few years. In fact, most recently it cleared the procedure for treating facial acne scars and neck wrinkles
What Makes Microneedling Effective?
Microneedling rejuvenates skin and helps repair specific skin conditions by stimulating the body to produce more collagen, elastin, and other skin-enhancing factors that renew its youthful look as a result. As implied by its name, the procedure works by puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles, creating thousands of microchannels in the skin that become targets of the body’s immune response.
Consequently, this natural response includes skin disinfection, debris removal, increased blood flow, and new tissue growth. The new dermal growth creates new blood vessels and produces collagen and elastin proteins. The new skin tissue that emerges tends to be firmer, smoother, and more even in tone.
Benefits of Microneedling
The dermal growth stimulation provided by microneedling makes it ideal for skin rejuvenation, and additionally may help forestall the age-related development of fine lines and wrinkles. In fact, in its age-defying preventive capacity, microneedling is beneficial as an adjunct to anti-aging and skin conditioning topical treatments, increasing their absorption rate. It can also be used to target and repair numerous skin conditions, including:
- Fine lines
- educed elasticity
- Acne scarring
- Pigmentation issues
- Uneven skin tone
What to Expect From Your Microneedling Experience
Microneedling at our Naples medical spa begins with a gentle cleansing of the treatment area and the optional application of a numbing agent to maximize patient comfort. Once numb, hydrogel is applied to the site to ensure smooth transit of the SkinPen® over the treated area. As a result of your skin type, condition, and desired aesthetic results will dictate the depth of sterile needle penetration and how many passes the SkinPen® will take over the skin for optimal results.
Afterwards, you may experience redness, swelling, and sensitivity of the treated area for up to three days. It may be more if you have exceptionally fair skin. Although, most patients report that these after-treatment symptoms are mild, and the majority feel comfortable enough to leave their homes within a day.
Most patients experience a noticeable firming of the skin within about a week of the procedure. Within a month, most report noticing a healthier-looking complexion. There is also a decrease in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, and other skin issues. Many of our clients schedule multiple microneedling sessions four to six weeks apart to maximize collagen production and resultant skin rejuvenation.
