Our skin is the largest organ of the body, and is exposed to the elements every day. The skin is vulnerable to the sun’s UV rays, which can often result in the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, it can cause uneven skin complexions and other problems that may need attention with a dermatological professional. At Beau Visage Aesthetics, Dr. Moazemi and his professionals are available to help with treatments such as microneedling.
What is microneedling?
Dr. Moazemi describes microneedling as a safe, effective way to improve the skin’s texture and tone. The procedure is performed with a special device that has hundreds of very tiny needles. The device is moved along the skin, allowing the pins to puncture the skin’s surface. This stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin due to its healing response, and in turn tightens the skin and improves its appearance and health.
What can I expect with microneedling?
Microneedling is a treatment that many patients are unsure about completing. Some are unsure about the puncturing of the skin, while others are not convinced that such as rudimentary tool could provide results comparable to laser therapies. Microneedling is performed on skin that has been anesthetized with a topical cream to ensure the comfort for the patient. The sterile needs puncture the epidermis and dermis with precision delivery. This treatment is highly recommend for patients who want to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, décolletage, and other areas. The number of treatments needed to see the results patients desire depends greatly on the expectations of the patient and their current skin concerns. Most patients will benefit from two or three treatments spaced a few weeks apart to allow the gradual enhancement of the skin over several months.
