Over the years, many different things will damage your skin, and there may come a point when you are unhappy with your appearance because of surface blemishes. If that sounds like your own situation, then you might be the perfect candidate for microneedling. This non-surgical treatment could begin to improve your skin within a matter of weeks, and the results should last for many years as long as you continue to schedule touch-up appointments.
Benefits of Microneedling:
Microneedling has been around for quite some time, and this procedure has helped countless patients eradicate their unwanted imperfections. Many years ago, cosmetic specialists began to realize that they could “trick” the skin into healing itself by creating small channels in the epidermis. When those small tears occur, the body treats the area as if it was naturally damaged. In the weeks following your microneedling appointments, the treatment site is going to be flooded with collagen and other important proteins. That form of collagen stimulation will create a smooth and toned appearance by repairing the outer layers of skin.
Even though we personalize every single one of our treatments, most patients will have a very similar experience with this procedure. After you arrive at our center, one of our team members will guide you to a private room where you can get comfortable. We can then sanitize and mark the treatment site where the microneedling is going to occur. The procedure itself usually takes around 30 minutes to complete, but there are some other factors to consider. If we are going to treat a larger area or multiple areas, then the procedure might take slightly longer.
Here at Imagos Institute of Plastic Surgery, we believe that everyone deserves to be comfortable in their own skin. That is why we are proud to offer residents of Miami and the surrounding communities a wide variety of surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments. From quick Botox injections to comprehensive mommy makeovers, our team can do it all. After you arrive at your first consultation, we can discuss your cosmetic goals and take a closer look at exactly what you would like to achieve. With that information, we can help you come up with a treatment plan that produces world-class results.
If you are curious about microneedling or any of our other treatments, then we would love to speak with you. Please schedule a complimentary in-person or virtual consultation with Izabella Udler, RRFUCS to help achieve your beauty goals.
One of the reasons why microneedling has become so popular is because practically every healthy adult is going to be a good candidate. As long as you don’t have any serious skin problems, this procedure could be an excellent option. With microneedling, we can treat fine lines and wrinkles around the forehead, eyes, nose, and mouth. This procedure can also be used to treat old surgical scars, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and other surface imperfections.
In addition to being a non-invasive treatment, microneedling is also incredibly effective. Dermal fillers and Botox treatments can be very effective as well, but some patients would like to avoid those types of products. With microneedling, your blemishes are going to disappear as your body repairs your skin through its natural healing process. The results can also last for a very long time as long as you continue to protect your skin and occasionally schedule follow-up treatments.
Just as with any other cosmetic procedure, it is important to remember that every patient will have slightly different results. That being said, the vast majority of patients begin to notice improvements within just a few weeks of the initial procedure. For the full results of your microneedling session, you might need to wait as long as six weeks. You won’t notice the final results until your skin has fully healed and the fresh collagen has flooded the treatment site.
During each microneedling session, you might feel some pressure or a slight stinging sensation, but those side effects tend to be very mild. For patients who are nervous about discomfort, we invite you to speak with our team about all of your options for anesthetics. We want to do everything in our power to make sure that you remain as comfortable as possible throughout each of your appointments.
Following your treatments, you will most likely notice at least a few mild side effects. One of the most common side effects of this treatment is skin discoloration, and your skin might be slightly red for one or two days after the appointment. Some patients also experience mild swelling, but that inflammation should disappear within one or two days as well.
Even though we do everything in our power to make our treatments as affordable as possible, we understand that some of these procedures can be major investments. If you have finally decided that microneedling is for you, then we would love to speak with you about all of your financing and payment options. We want to ensure that you remain happy and confident, and our team would love to help you come up with an affordable plan that lets you achieve your cosmetic goals without breaking the bank.
Schedule an Appointment
Before you have your first microneedling session carried out, you will need to schedule an initial consultation. During your first appointment, we will discuss all of your cosmetic goals and take a closer look at your medical history. Once we have covered all of that information, our team can then set up a treatment schedule. For the average patient, we typically suggest between three and six treatments depending on the severity of the blemishes. In order to give your skin ample time to recover, those appointments must be scheduled once every four to six weeks.
We are proud to offer our patients some of the most advanced and effective treatments in the world, and we would love to help you eradicate any cosmetic blemishes that you are struggling with. Here at Imagos Institute of Plastic Surgery, we also offer a myriad of other surgical and non-surgical procedures to anyone who is ready to boost their confidence. Please schedule a complimentary in-person or virtual consultation with Izabella Udler, RRFUCS to help achieve your beauty goals.
