Who doesn’t want their skin to look smooth, more vibrant, or have a more polished appearance? Maybe you’ve tried all sorts of skincare products and facial treatments, but you still aren’t satisfied with your skin’s texture and tone. Or maybe you’ve been dealing with acne scars or stretch marks for far too long, and you are searching for something to elicit a real change. You are in luck — because there is a procedure that can help you get fresher, rejuvenated-looking skin.
Brighter, Improved Texture with Just One Treatment
Collagen Induction Therapy
Microneedling, more formally known as “collagen induction therapy,” works through a procedure that employs tiny, shallow needles to stimulate collagen production in the skin, for a fuller, more youthful look. For those who are new to these kinds of procedures, “collagen” is the main structural protein found in skin and other connective tissues, widely used in a purified form for cosmetic surgical treatments.
The microneedling procedure is effective for targeting fine lines and wrinkles that aren’t always addressed with injectables or skin care treatments, as it uses the body’s own natural healing and recovery process to help reverse the effects of time on your face and skin.
Microneedling – A Better, Quicker, Safer, and Pain-Free Alternative to Surgery
Why go through facelifts, when your face can benefit equally from microneedling? Encourage your body to produce abundant supplies of collagen with a single treatment of microneedling.
Why go through painful surgery, when you can have rejuvenated skin through a pain-free process? Microneedling – as painful as it sounds, is a pain-free procedure that simply feels like sandpaper moving across your face. Don’t like the sound of it? We will apply a topical anesthetic that is gentle on your skin and yet makes you feel absolutely comfortable through the procedure.
Notice results almost instantly, and continue to witness good results over 6 weeks from the procedure. For optimal results, you can opt for up to three treatments, with each treatment a month apart from the previous one. Each one lasts for just 30 minutes.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Microneedling Work?
This absolutely non-invasive procedure uses tiny micro-needles to create very tiny injuries in the skin – so small that you won’t feel a thing. The body’s natural healing process then takes over and stimulates the production of collagen – which is the body’s natural filler to fill fine lines, remove scars, and improve the skin’s tone and texture.
What is the Recovery Like and What Are the Results After the Microneedling Procedure?
Don’t be alarmed if you look flushed or sunburned immediately after the procedure. Your skin might even feel abnormally warm or tender. If you have very sensitive skin, you might even experience some bruising and swelling. However, these are all common immediate side effects that will subside within a few hours.
Are Their Special Instructions After the Microneedling Procedure?
Let your skin rest for a day after the procedure. Avoid products that contain retinol or any type of acid for at least a week. We recommend no makeup for at least a day or two after the procedure.
Is Microneedling Limited to Only the Face?
Microneedling in Indianapolis is also indicated where patients want to address stretch marks, acne scars, or surgical scars. While multiple microneedling treatments are required in these scenarios, the results can be dramatic. Collagen induction therapy is also excellent for addressing fine lines and reducing the appearance of the size of the pores.
