Sometimes you need to schedule an in-office treatment to target your problem areas because your topical products just aren’t cutting it. If you’re looking for skin rejuvenating treatment, we have the perfect solution. At Lively Wellness and Aesthetics in Odessa, TX, we offer a natural treatment called microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy. This treatment can improve the appearance of the skin, reduce acne scars, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
How Long Do Microneedling Results Last?
Once you notice visible results from your microneedling treatments, you can expect those results to last anywhere from six to eight months in total. You will notice a smoother, more uniform skin texture, and your skin will look and feel tighter and firmer thanks to increased collagen production.
You will be able to enjoy your results for several months after your treatment plan is complete, and you can schedule follow-up treatments as needed to prolong your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Does the Treatment Work?
This treatment uses a specialized device packed with tiny, hair-thin, sterile needles of different depths to create micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. Treatments can last anywhere from several minutes to an hour. Some patients treat their entire face; others just want to treat a specific area. A numbing solution will be applied to your treatment area before the treatment begins.
The numbing solution will take approximately 15 minutes to take effect. Once the microneedling device penetrates the skin’s surface, it will create tiny holes in the epidermis that act as channels to the dermis, the deeper layer of the skin. Any products applied post-treatment will better absorb and help improve the skin.
Is It Painful?
This treatment is virtually painless. Prior to beginning the treatment session, a numbing solution will be applied to your skin which will help you endure the treatment without any discomfort. You will be able to relax as our esthetician performs a treatment that will help you achieve beautiful skin and improve some of your worst problem areas.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Since this treatment can address different skin conditions, treatment plans will vary among patients. Those who want to eliminate acne scars may need more sessions than those simply trying to rejuvenate their skin. Once an expert evaluates your skin during your consultation, we can provide you with a better idea of what your specific treatment plan will look like and how many treatment sessions you must schedule to achieve your desired results.
The best results come when patients commit to their treatment schedule and trust the recommendations of our experienced skin care experts, who know exactly how to help you improve your complexion.
Is It Natural?
Microneedling is one of the most natural skin rejuvenating treatments available. It uses a specialized device packed with tiny needles to create tiny holes in the skin that the body responds to with a cellular reaction. This treatment also increases collagen production, which helps improve the skin’s overall appearance, makes it firmer and tighter, and helps reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
The treatment device stimulates the body to heal and renew your skin from the inside out. It doesn’t use harsh chemicals or ingredients to improve the skin but instead uses a tool that stimulates natural processes resulting in increased collagen and elastin production.
When Will I Notice Results?
Some patients begin to notice an improvement in their problem areas within two weeks of their microneedling treatment session. When you will notice results all depends on your goals and the number of sessions our esthetician recommends to help you reach your aesthetic goals.
As your body creates increased collagen and elastin in your treatment area, you will begin to notice visible changes in your skin and will finally see an improvement in some of your worst problem areas.
What Skin Conditions Can It Treat?
This treatment can address many different skin concerns. It can help reduce the appearance of acne scars, lighten stretch marks, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, address hyperpigmentation and different forms of skin discoloration, including melasma, inflammatory pigmentation, and pigmentation disorders. It can also address skin laxity and make the skin tighter and firmer.
Am I a Candidate?
Patients with all different skin types and tones can schedule this treatment to improve their skin. Most patients qualify as treatment candidates, but an initial consultation with one of our experts is the best way to determine if this form of collagen induction therapy is right for you. The best candidates are patients looking for a natural yet effective way to target some of the most problematic skin conditions, including acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, and hyperpigmentation.
Some patients may not qualify for treatment due to safety precautions, including those with active acne or a skin infection in their planned treatment area. Once the skin has healed, a treatment can then be scheduled.
