Microneedling for Skin Concerns

Microneedling for Skin Concerns

With so many beauty and skincare options out there, how do you know which treatments work best for your skin? Skin Deep Med Spa, Boston microneedling service has gained popularity in the beauty industry over the past few years because of its clinical effectiveness on skin concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks as well as enlarged pores, and other skin pigmentation issues.

While derma rolling has been used for ages in dermatological practices, it is not a treatment that is yet widely used by many individuals at home.

If you're searching for a microneedling service, read on to learn more about how effective this procedure is and look no further than Skin Deep Med Spa in Boston.

Microneedling Overview

Microneedling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), skin needling, and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI). The term CIT was given by the medical industry.

Microneedling is one of the most popular anti-aging treatments on the market. People who have gone through this cosmetic procedure are satisfied with their results. Considering how far you'll go to look younger and feel confident about your youthful glow, microneedling might just be the perfect skin procedure for you. 

How to Prepare for the Treatment

There are some tips for a successful microneedling treatment, ensuring that you recover quickly and comfortably.

Before you can undergo this treatment, you are required to undergo a series of tests and examinations. The doctor will want to know your medical history, any allergies you may have, and any skin disease present on your face or other parts of your body.

You should also provide them with a list of medications you may be taking. You must not use any skin product for at least two days before the procedure, and avoid sun exposure while your skin is healing.

Microneedling Treatment

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation technique that involves a fine needle to create tiny punctures in the skin. 

You will be seated comfortably in a reclining chair or bed. The specialist will then apply numbing cream all over the surface to be treated. They will then wipe it off and proceed with the microneedling process itself.

It is done with a handheld device or one that is attached to an electrical pen like the one you use to write on a piece of paper called a derma roller. The needles are usually between 0.5 and 3.0 mm long.

The punctures cause injury to the skin and stimulate the body's healing response. The needles create microscopic channels in the skin to allow topical anesthetic, anti-inflammatory agents, or growth factors to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin.

The body responds and stimulates collagen production, improving the skin texture and reducing wrinkles. Additionally, blood vessels will dilate and increase blood flow, which gives additional anti-aging benefits by improving circulation and bringing more nutrients and oxygen to the skin cells.

Microneedling helps stimulate hyaluronic acid production in your body, which is crucial for keeping your skin hydrated and preventing signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. It is also beneficial for acne scars and many other skin issues like rosacea by increasing blood flow to the area being treated.

Microneedling is effective in treating both shallow deep scars and stretch marks.

Conditions Microneedling Treat

A procedure such as this is used to treat different conditions, including:

  • Acne scarring
  • Skin tags
  • Wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Age spots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Hyperpigmentation and sunspots
  • Lost elasticity
  • Uneven skin textures
  • Uneven skin tones
  • Fine lines
  • Burn injuries
  • Chickenpox
  • Scars from trauma

Microneedling thickens the epidermis and dermis, which can help even out skin tone. It is considered one of the top non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the world today and has been used for thousands of years in a variety of cultures around the world.

The aesthetic results of microneedling include:

  • Radiance and glow of the skin
  • Temporarily stimulates blood vessels

Side Effects of Microneedling

Although microneedling does not involve surgery, patients may experience some local discomfort from this dermatologic procedure. The most common side effects associated with microneedling are itching or burning sensations in the injection area.

The derma roller creates small punctures that may cause mild discomfort and redness in the first few days after treatment at the site of application.

Here are some side effects to expect after undergoing the procedure:

  • Rashes and itchiness around the face and other parts of the body.
  • Eye irritation, eye pain, and blurred vision.
  • Mild to severe allergic reactions like swelling and itching.
  • Allergic reaction to filler or tattoo ink used during microneedling process.
  • Recurrence of acne blemishes and pimples after treatment.

However, these side effects usually disappear after a few days.

Home Microneedling vs. SkinDeep Med Spa’s Approach

Home microneedling is a buzz topic on internet forums, social media, and Youtube. The popularity of home microneedling has caused a lot of confusion relating to microneedling effectiveness and therapies.

If you search for the keywords microneedling home remedy or microneedling system on Amazon or eBay, you will find an extensive array of devices ranging in price from $50 to $500.

There are also many products sold with specific instructions that vary widely. As a result, there is a lot of confusion among patients whether to invest in microneedling at the local spa, or purchase a home microneedling device and do it themselves at home.

While these machines can give your skin a wonderful glow, there is no comparison to the amount of healing that can be accomplished through professional spa microneedling treatments.

We at Skin Deep Med Spa recommend spa microneedling for several reasons. First, the procedure is performed by a medical professional using sterile single-use tiny needles. Second, larger needles can be used with greater results and less pain as compared to home microneedling devices.

Lastly, since we only use professional microneedling devices, you can rest assured that your treatment has not been contaminated by using a random person’s microneedling devices.
