Micro-Needling

 

Turn Back Time with Micro-Needling in San Antonio

Micro-Needling treatments at Sculpt AwayHow would you like your skin to look? From having firmer skin to noticing fewer lines to eliminating wrinkles, we can help you in a variety of ways.

Get to turn back the clock with our collagen-including micro-needling treatment. Ideally, most signs of visible aging arise from a decline in collagen production. Once you boost the amount of collagen in your body, you can regain your youthful skin back.

Besides eliminating signs of injury, micro-needling with PRP San Antonio can help you reverse skin injuries like scars. It does so by building a healthier and stronger collagen framework for your body.

What Is Micro-Needling?

Micro-needling is a minimally invasive procedure that looks to rejuvenate the skin through collagen induction.

It involves piercing your skin layers with thin needles, causing some micro-injuries to your skin. In turn, these injuries boost the production of collagen and minimize cellular damage.

Collagen is a protein that supports skin firmness. It helps heal wounds, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, eliminates stretch marks and scarring, and enlarges pores.

The needling procedure can be applied to various parts of the body, from the face to the arms.

For instance, since collagen helps keep the upper skin layers firm, micro needle facial procedures can give your facial skin some tightness.

How Does Micro Derma Needling Work?

Micro-needling exposes your body to minor injuries. The body’s natural response is to disinfect the wound.

Besides removing debris, this response increases blood flow to the injured part while promoting tissue regeneration.

The body’s immune system then stimulates the rebuilding of the injured areas, from the development of blood vessels to the regeneration of injured cells.

As a micro-skin needling patient, you can expect the process to be both cost-effective and pain-free.

Expect minimal downtime after the micro skin treatment procedure. While it can be performed at home, having the procedure done by a professional could help yield optimal results.

Are You An Ideal Derma Needling Candidate?

You are an ideal candidate for body and face needling as long as you want to eliminate stretch marks, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and scarring from your skin.

It could also be an ideal solution for complications like poor skin texture and hyperpigmentation. If you are experiencing symptoms that point to low collagen levels, you are also an ideal candidate.

The positive thing about this procedure is that it can be applied to any skin tone without complication. However, there are a few complications that could make the procedure tough to perform.

For instance, if you have a history of blisters, fever, and cold sores, you might not be an ideal candidate, but there are exceptions. Be sure to let us know about any complications you might have during the consultation.
Most of these complications can be solved with the right medication, making the performance of the procedure possible.

What Should You Expect During Microderm Needling Treatment?

It is normal to feel some discomfort during the procedure. That’s why we offer topical numbing agents to keep the sting at bay. Besides this discomfort, you should expect a vibrating sensation throughout the 30-minute procedure.

Once we are done, it is normal to notice sunburn-like skin redness.

This redness should wear off in the first few days. You can start seeing the full results of your skin needling treatment anywhere between the one and three-month mark.

What Are The Micro-Needling Side Effects?

Micro-needling is a minimally invasive procedure. In case of any pain, we can always apply general anesthesia or numbing cream.

At the very least, you should expect some skin redness that should disappear in the first few days following the procedure. While you will start noticing positive changes in your skin in the first few days, the final results can be expected a few weeks down the line.

Depending on your unique skin makeup, you could start noticing minor bleeding or redness around the target area.

Just like the other side effects, these wear off in a few days. Bruising is also a common side effect in the first few days, but it’s usually nothing that some mineral-based makeup can’t hide.

Is There Any Micro-Needling Downtime?

The good thing with micro-needling is that it is a fast and minimally invasive procedure. Since it lasts for about 30 minutes, you could be done with the procedure in a snap.

Best of all, the only side effect you can expect is some skin redness or soreness, which disappears quickly. Getting back to your everyday routine should be easy.

Is Micro-Needling Painful?

Generally, skin needling treatment is quite tolerable. However, in case of any discomfort, anesthesia or numbing cream can be provided. Expect to experience a slight sandpaper sensation during the procedure.
