If you want the most out of your facial, opt for microneedling. This procedure stimulates your body’s own natural healing powers to boost collagen production, resulting in a radiant, glowing complexion. At Texas Wellness Clinic in Richmond, Texas, the team of providers offers microneedling as a step up from the conventional facial. Call the office or schedule an appointment online to learn how you can reduce the appearance of aging, scarring, and skin imperfections with this procedure.
The team at Texas Wellness Clinic uses an FDA-cleared microneedling device equipped with tiny needles that, when pressed against your skin, creates micro-injuries to stimulate your body’s natural wound-healing process.
The tiny holes are invisible to the eye, but your body sends growth factors and boosts collagen production to heal them, resulting in stronger, smoother, and more radiant skin.
Following the microneedling procedure, the staff applies growth factor serums to your skin. The micro-holes make your skin temporarily more able to absorb the serum and benefit from the healing.
Microneedling triggers your body to release cytokines and growth factors that lead to the remodeling of collagen and elastin, skin compounds that provide structure and elasticity.
The wound-healing process stimulated by microneedling has three phases:
Immediately following microneedling, your immune system works to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow, and create new tissue.
New granulation cells and a temporary type of collagen and elastin develop. A new network of blood vessels also begins to form.
Each of the micro-wounds is replaced with new dermal tissue and blood vessels. A more permanent type of collagen forms to create a shrink-wrap effect on your skin, leading to a tighter, smoother look.
Microneedling effectively improves the appearance of skin complaints, such as:
Microneedling causes much less damage to your skin than lasers or ablative treatments. Recovery is quicker than other skin rejuvenation techniques.
You receive a topical numbing cream prior to the microneedling procedure to ease the sensation. Most people tolerate the process quite well. The depth of treatment ranges from 0.5-2.5 millimeters, and the providers determine what level is best for your skin’s needs and aesthetic goals.
After a microneedling session, you may have some pinkness and minor scabbing that fades within a few days, but you don’t have to schedule downtime following a microneedling session.
