Microneedling is a unique medical technique used in Tampa that encourages collagen induction. This treatment has been effectively used to help individuals who are battling with wrinkles, scar tissue, and other issues that are affecting their skin. By creating microscopic openings in a person’s skin, microneedling triggers the body’s natural healing and restorative process.
The body responds to the microscopic holes in the skin created during the microneedling process by flooding the injured area with collagen, elastin, blood, and nutrients. Within a matter of just a few hours, the microchannels are all but healed. The result is that the injured area and the skin around the injured area becomes tighter, smoother, more elastic, and takes on a youthful appearance.
Is There Downtime After the Treatment?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment. Prior to the treatment, a numbing ointment is put on the treatment area. After treatment, most people in Tampa are able to get up and go right back to their daily activities with absolutely no interruption to their daily routine. Each treatment session will take less than an hour, and treatments are usually scheduled weeks apart.
What Conditions Can This Treatment Address?
The aging process is a fact of life. Because we get older, we lose collagen. Loss of collagen leads to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines on our face and throughout the rest of our body. The aging process of our skin may cause us to develop dark circles underneath your eyes. We may develop sunspots, and our once even skin tone becomes blotchy. Microneedling has been proven to be effective in treating all of these conditions.
One of the biggest reasons a person experiences premature aging is because of overexposure to the sun. Being in the sun for a proper amount of time is healthy for the skin. However, when a person is in the sun without proper skin protection for an extended period of time, the effects on their skin can be damaging.
In youth a person may think that they are immune to the damages caused by the sun. It is not until they reach their middle-age years that they start to see the consequences of spending their youthful years in the sun without protection. Microneedling is a technique that can help reverse some of the damage that sun exposure has caused to your skin.
