Microneedling Procedure in Virginia

Scars and blemishes cutting into your confidence? A microneedling treatment can make a world of difference. You’ve more than likely already read thousands of satisfied testimonials from clients who’ve undergone microneedling for their scars, dark spots, and wrinkles. They say it’s safe, the results last a long time, and it’s convenient. But, what you’re probably wondering now is if it’s suitable for your skin.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is one of the newest innovations in the cosmetic industry that’s minimally invasive—meaning it’s relatively painless, and you can quickly go back to your daily routine without a lot of hassle. The procedure utilizes tiny, sterilized needles to prick the skin and encourage blood flow and collagen generation.

What Does Microneedling Do for Your Skin?

Microneedling can help smooth, tone, and keep your skin firm. It’s especially beneficial for your face, treating acne scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks. More collagen and blood flow reaching your epidermis means older skin tissues get replaced more quickly with newer and healthier cells.

The science behind it is also simple. Microneedling procedures take advantage of our body’s natural ability to heal. Our skin regularly sheds and replaces itself approximately every 27 days. Microneedling your scars, wrinkles, and dark spots is essentially just a way of speeding up the whole process.

Microneedling and Its Benefits

Many people who have undergone microneedling for their scars have achieved fantastic results for their skin. But, the procedure’s claim to fame is that it has been proven to do more than just that. Here are the benefits that microneedling has provided for our clients:

What Should I Expect After the Microneedling Procedure?

Provided that the person is generally healthy, microneedling aftercare shouldn’t be much of a problem. And since it’s a minimally invasive procedure, recovery time will be minimal. 

Expect your skin to be slightly reddish, sensitive, and easily irritated, these are the natural side-effects from the tiny disturbance injuries made by the needles. You’ll want to wait a week or so before exposing your skin to the sun and applying makeup again. 

You can also help your skin recover more quickly by staying hydrated, using antioxidant serums, and using a cooling mask.

In a couple of weeks, your skin will have regenerated new tissue, revealing more beautiful skin and reducing the appearance of scars and blemishes.

Is Microneedling Safe for Me?

Microneedling scars, dark spots, and wrinkles may be one of the more effective ways to treat certain skin problems, but, like every other procedure, there are still risks to be wary of. 

People who have conditions that affect their skin, like diabetes, eczema, or psoriasis, may not be good candidates for microneedling. And due to the nature of the procedure, those who have clotting or bleeding disorders may want to avoid the treatment as well. This also goes for people with active acne, as microneedling may exacerbate issues instead. 

It’s always best to talk to your dermatologist before going through with a microneedling procedure.
