Microneedling is a very versatile treatment that relies on your body’s innate healing abilities. It’s one of many treatments on offer from the team at Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa in Tacoma, Washington. If you’d like to learn more, call to schedule a visit or spend a few moments on the online booking page to find a time that fits your busy schedule.
Microneedling uses a treatment handpiece covered in tiny, sterile needles to create thousands of microscopic punctures into the deeper layers of your skin. Your body perceives each of these tiny punctures as a microinjury and launches a powerful healing response.
Numbing cream applied before treatment prevents any significant discomfort. Your skin may feel irritated, and you might experience minor swelling and bleeding immediately after your visit, but your skin begins to heal right away.
As new blood vessels increase circulation to the area and your system creates new collagen cells, your skin begins to take on a glowing, tighter appearance. It takes time for the full results to develop, but many people begin to enjoy their results just days after microneedling sessions.
Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa uses the SkinPen® microneedling device, which offers safe, predictable, and effective results.
Microneedling offers the chance to address more than one issue with the same treatment. Some of the skin complaints that bring people in for microneedling include:
Microneedling is most commonly done on the face but is also a great treatment option for your chest, arms, neck, or legs. It’s a great option if you’re searching for impressive improvements but aren’t ready for plastic surgery.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a solution created from a small sample of your own blood. By isolating the platelets, collecting them, and reintroducing them into the cleared plasma, a powerful concentration of growth factors develops. The entire process of creating PRP takes only a short period of time, and the amount of blood required is similar to what’s drawn during routine blood testing.
When spread across the surface of your skin during microneedling, PRP can easily penetrate the deeper layers of skin where it goes to work, enhancing the healing process and spurring prompt cellular development.
A face-to-face consultation is a great way to explore microneedling and other treatment options in greater detail. You can book your visit today using the easy online scheduling page, or you’re always welcome to call and check appointment availability.
