Facial imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and an uneven skin tone may take a toll on your self-confidence. Over time, your skin loses collagen, which can cause it to look dull and make you look older than you feel. At New Beginnings Med Spa in Mesa, Arizona, you have access to microneedling treatments to refresh and revitalize facial skin. Microneedling stimulates your skin’s natural collagen production to enhance skin volume and give you a youthful glow. Call New Beginnings Med Spa or request an appointment online to learn more about microneedling.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that utilizes tiny, controlled micro-wounds to stimulate collagen production. Your provider at New Beginnings Med Spa uses a roller device with many tiny needlepoints to pierce your skin. The pinpricks left by the roller cause your skin to generate collagen, filling in lines and wrinkles and smoothing the texture of your skin.
Collagen is the structural protein in your skin that’s responsible for volume and elasticity. As you age, your skin produces less collagen. This leads to lines, wrinkles, and less-voluminous skin.
Microneedling is an effective cosmetic treatment for a number of skin concerns like:
Microneedling treatments are safe for all skin types.
Prior to beginning treatment, plan to discuss your medical history and goals with your provider at New Beginnings Med Spa.
Your microneedling session begins with preparing your skin with a cleanser and a topical anesthetic to keep you comfortable. The microneedling process takes about 30 minutes, and then you may receive a calming serum after the treatment is complete.
You’ll likely experience minor redness or skin irritation immediately following your microneedling treatment, but side effects should fade quickly. You can return to your normal daily activities as soon as you leave New Beginnings Med Spa.
It takes between 48 and 72 hours for your skin to start generating more collagen and elastin after microneedling. You’ll begin to see noticeable results after about four weeks, once your skin has had time to grow more collagen.
The effects of microneedling and the collagen that’s produced as a result of treatment can last for several years, making microneedling a procedure with long-term results.
