If you are looking for a minimally invasive treatment that can rejuvenate your face and bring back the healthy glow of youth, you should try microneedling. Even though the name sounds a bit daunting, this cosmetic treatment has been gaining popularity over the past few years and offers huge benefits to your skin.
Thanks to social media, more people are aware of this quick but very beneficial treatment. Today we will talk about what you can expect from microneedling before and after 1 treatment or if you should expect to undergo multiple treatments to address your cosmetic imperfections.
Are There Different Types Of Microneedling?
Microneedling is performed with a hand-held device that is embedded with a series of tiny, sharp, sterilized needles. When rolled over or stamped into different locations on the skin, these needles create tiny injuries. Our bodies are naturally programmed to repair injuries to the skin by ramping up the production of collagen and elastin. The microneedles activate this repair response the minute these injuries are created, so sometimes this procedure is referred to as collagen induction therapy.
Microneedling can be done using one of various techniques, including:
1. Conventional Microneedling
The traditional form of microneedling utilizes a roller or handheld stamping device that is equipped with tiny microneedles. These needles are applied to the skin to create cellular-scale injuries, which force them into healing mode. Sometimes, special serums are applied to the treatment areas during the microneedling process, which helps them absorb deeper into the skin than a topical application would allow.
2. Radiofrequency Microneedling
This technique goes a few steps above conventional microneedling and delivers more dramatic, longer-lasting results. As with traditional microneedling, the procedure creates tiny injuries in the top layers of the skin, but the benefits reach well beyond these layers. The delivery of the simultaneous radiofrequency triggers the acceleration of repair and regeneration deep into the lower layers for more through dermal rejuvenation.
Radiofrequency microneedling treatments such as Morpheus8 offer significantly enhanced results over the traditional treatment and can correct more complex imperfections such as deep acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, stretchmarks, etc. The addition of the radiofrequency also provides the added benefit of noticeably tightening the skin. Check out these Morpheus8 microneedling before and afters, where 1 treatment on a man significantly reduced his double chin.
What Imperfections Can Be Treated With Microneedling
You will notice a difference when using microneedling before and after 1 treatment, but sometimes more than one session is needed to reach your desired results.
The various microneedling techniques available allow cosmetic surgeons and qualified dermatologists to address a wide range of cosmetic concerns, including:
- Acne and the resulting scarring;
- Discoloration or dark spots on your skin;
- Enlarged pores;
- Loose or crepey skin;
- Loss of hair;
- Superficial scars;
- Stretch marks;
- UV damage;
- Uneven skin texture;
- Dull, unhealthy-looking skin.
What Can I Expect From Microneedling Before And After 1 Treatment?
There are several different microneedling treatments available that can help you get the complexion you’ve always desired; it’s not a one-size-fits-all procedure. Your cosmetic surgeon can help you customize just the right treatment that will deliver the results you want.
After one treatment, your skin will be plumper and look healthier, radiating a more youthful glow. Fine lines and wrinkles will be diminished, and the texture of your skin will look more even, with any darker spots significantly diminished.
Addressing deep imperfections like acne scars usually requires more than one session, so it is important to set your expectations accordingly. The results of microneedling before and after 1 treatment on acne scars may not give you the immediate results you are looking for.
Also, some of the results of your microneedling treatment may be immediately visible, while others will take longer to appear. The repairs and collagen manufacturing going on underneath the surface will take longer to manifest, but rest assured, they are taking place.
Do I Need A Professional For Microneedling?
Microneedling is very beneficial to your skin when it is done properly by a trained professional. While there has been much hype about using DIY home microneedling devices, they are not nearly as effective as professional in-office treatments. They also introduce the risks of improper use and infection that are best avoided.
The most effective microneedling treatments, such as Morpheus8, which is combined with radiofrequency (RF), need to be administered by a trained professional. The equipment is designed so it can be used on the most delicate areas of the face or areas of tougher skin, such as addressing stretch marks on the thighs. Use of the proper settings and attachments on the device to deliver the correct needle length and RF strength is required to prevent damage to the skin.
RF microneedling before and after 1 treatment can offer dramatic results and restore a healthy, youthful appearance to your face that is long-lasting. Try it! When you see the amazing results, you will probably wonder why you haven’t done it before!
