Microneedling is a treatment that can create healthy, rejuvenated skin. A variety of factors can cause skin to appear rough and aged, and microneedling can reverse these, allowing clients to experience the benefits of more youthful skin. Of course, the next question is likely to be: even if I find someone to perform microneedling near me, what should I expect? Fortunately, the team at aFresh® Med Spa & Plastic Surgery in Glenview, IL is on hand to get you started in determining if the treatment is right for you.
First things first, let’s acquaint ourselves with the procedure a little more. Microneedling uses a special tool that rejuvenates the skin by applying microtrauma. The device contains many tiny needles, hence the name of the procedure. The micro-needles penetrate down to the upper layer of the dermis, stimulating the release of collagen and growth factors. This treatment can be applied every four to six weeks, and clients can typically expect dramatic results after a series of treatments.
Preparing for Your Treatment
Since this is a skin treatment, preparation involves making sure your skin is ready for the process of microneedling. This means that for a set amount of time before the procedure, you must avoid those things in your environment that will worsen skin problems, or make your skin less amenable to the treatment.
What exactly are we talking about? Prolonged sun exposure and recurrent bouts of acne are common causes of skin problems, so avoid the sun and notify our team if you have a breakout of acne. There are a few more items on the list that we can review with you during a consultation.
What Should I Expect?
Many of you wondering about microneedling will also be curious about what to expect during and after the process. Again, our team can review this with you during your initial appointment.
