Consider Skin Enhancement with Microneedling Procedures
- Posted on: Aug 15 2019
Poor skin texture and tone are common complaints seen by our skin care experts at Tranquil Waters Med Spa in Gilbert, AZ. Finding ways to enhance the skin is part of our job, and we help patients transform their skin with a variety of procedures. One commonly used procedure for skin enhancement is the microneedling treatment.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin procedure that can be performed to help improve texture and tone of the facial skin. This treatment works off the idea of trauma. A specialized device that may include hundreds or thousands of tiny microscale needles is used along the skin to puncture the outer layer. By doing this, the needles create damage to the upper skin and stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. Over many weeks, the skin will improve noticeably. Some microneedling treatments can also be used to deliver medication into the skin at the same time, penetrating through the skin and enhancing it.
Is microneedling painful?
Some patients do experience some discomfort, but this is relative to one’s overall pain tolerance. We do offer topical aesthetics for the skin prior to starting treatment if patients desire. This will numb the skin and ensure the procedure is more comfortable for patients who are concerned about pain.
How often should microneedling procedures be performed?
Many patients who visit Tranquil Waters Med Spa are interested in a single treatment to enhance the skin. However, some patients visit our practice regularly for treatment to continually enhance the skin. This can be helpful for patients who have a variety of concerns with their skin, as well as those who may be imperfections that take longer to treat.
Can microneedling be combined with other procedures?
We prefer to provide microneedling as a treatment all on its own because of the trauma it creates on the skin. However, patients can use other treatments intermittently with microneedling, just not during the same appointment.
