What are the benefits of using microneedling treatment for skin rejuvenation in Houston, TX?
There are many benefits for patients in the Houston, TX area who are interested in rejuvenation of the skin. The skin’s texture and tone will improve, certain conditions such as acne can be treated, and fine lines and wrinkles may be reduced. One of the most popular treatments for skin rejuvenation is that of microneedling.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as “Collagen Induction Therapy” (CIT) is a procedure that is performed to help enhance the skin. Patients seeking rejuvenation treatments will find that microneedling is effective, affordable, and safe to use as a way of achieving the skin they’ve always wanted. This procedure is done right in the dermatologist’s office and can provide patients with a more attractive appearance, reducing the appearance of problems such as:
- Large pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Poor tone (redness)
- Acne scarring
- Skin Discoloration due to Hyperpigmentation
Patients who have a variety of skin issues may find that microneedling is a great treatment for them!
How does microneedling work?
Microneedling or CIT, uses a specialized device rolled along the skin that includes very fine needles. These needles puncture the skin, and in doing so, stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. This provides improved texture and tone, exfoliating the skin and ensuring amazing results over the course of a few weeks.
Is it uncomfortable?
The needles are extremely small, and many patients just experience mild discomfort. Dr. Seymour Weaver and his team at Dr. W Dermatology provide topical anesthetics on the skin to ensure patients comfort throughout. Many patients love having this procedure done regularly to improve their skin’s appearance.
Is it safe?
When performed and monitored by a medical professional, microneedling is safe and provides the results patients expect. We find that many of our patients continue to have microneedling performed to improve their skin. Additionally, this procedure can be combined with others for faster results and to address specific issues. For example, patients may choose to use dermal fillers to address deep wrinkles and folds on the face while treating the minor lines with the use of microneedling. Patients with acne may also continue to use specialized cleaners and treatments to control their condition while using microneedling as “one step further” in the treatment process.
Who is a candidate for microneedling?
Any man or woman who is interested in combatting a variety of skin issues with a minimally invasive treatment may want to ask their dermatologist about the benefits of using microneedling to achieve the results they desire. We encourage patients to book a consultation appointment with a trained skin specialist working with Dr. Seymour Weaver to decide if this treatment is appropriate for their specific needs. Other treatments may be discussed, and we provide the knowledge patients require to make an educated decision in how to move forward with their skin rejuvenation services.
What to expect after microneedling
The procedure is simple and painless, thanks to the use of topical anesthetics. However, afterwards, patients need to take great care of their skin as the treatment works its magic over the next several weeks. Patients are advised to limit sun exposure and to use sun protection each day. They may notice redness and discomfort, but this is short term and should disappear within a few days. The results of treatment are seen gradually over time, but continued treatments can continually improve the skin’s texture and tone.
How much does microneedling cost?
The cost of treatment varies from patient to patient depending on the area being treated. The facial area will be quoted at a different price than other areas of the body that may be getting treatment, such as the décolleté. We encourage patients to book a consultation visit to ask about cost and expectations of microneedling.
