Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a skin treatment that involves the use of a device containing fine needles that create shallow punctures of the top layer of the skin. The puncturing of the skin triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin to aid healing.
The technique is used to help a number of skin problems including fill in acne scars, reduce large pores, minimize stretch marks, eliminate sun damage and improve skin texture. It can also help improve firmness, and be used on darker skin tones, which can often have uneven results from other techniques.
To achieve the best result, this treatment requires several treatments done a few weeks apart. At Express Beauty, we offer microneedling near Fort Worth, Texas and we will help clients schedule their treatment to improve common facial skin problems.
The Microneedling Procedure
Your North Richland Hills, Texas beauty spa can provide microneedling in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere, where you can receive personalized attention.
First, a numbing cream is applied to the skin to keep you comfortable during the procedure. The microneedling device is run over the surface of the skin to create the punctures. The process takes about 30 minutes. The length of needle used depends on the type of skin correction needed. Very short needles are used to remove fine lines and improve texture. Longer needles are used to fill in acne scars.
The process is generally not painful, although some clients experience some sensitivity as the therapy progresses. A serum is then applied to the skin to aid healing. The client can then go home and resume normal activities.
At Expressive Beauty, we utilize revolutionary ProCell technology to give you a natural look!
Generally, clients will experience redness and discomfort like sunburn for a day or two after the procedure. After a few days, your skin will be back to normal, with no sign of the tiny punctures. You will be given a cream to apply to the skin to prevent inflammation and aid the healing process. You will be able to wear makeup and sunscreen the day following your treatment.
Keep in mind uou will need several treatments to achieve the maximum benefit from the therapy. In addition, to maintain the improved texture and appearance, its best to continue to receive treatments.
