Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment designed to help your body produce more collagen and elastin and improve skin texture. This treatment is also known as collagen therapy. Microneedling promotes collagen and enhances texture and skin rejuvenation, minimizes and heals scars, fine wrinkles, pore appearance, and overall skin tone. The mechanical injury to the tissue triggers the body’s natural wound healing process, creating collagen and elastin.
It works to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out by stimulating your body’s natural wound healing mechanism while reducing cellular damage. This treatment is safe for any skin tone.
What is the procedure for Microneedling Tampa
During the procedure, a device with fine needles, called the skin pen, is used to make tiny punctures in the top layer of skin. The purpose of these punctures is to stimulate collagen production.
This treatment is often performed on the face but can also be used on other body parts, such as the neck, chest, or hands. Most people tolerate the treatment well. We apply numbing cream 15-30 minutes before treatment to keep you comfortable. After the procedure, there may be some redness and swelling, but this typically disappears within a few hours.
A series of treatments are typically recommended about four to six weeks apart. The number of treatments you need will depend on your skin concerns and goals.
After the procedure, you may see some skin tightening improvements. However, to see the full results, it may take 4 to 6 weeks. This gives the skin time to produce collagen and for the cells to turn over. Our experts will consult with you during your consultation and make recommendations to ensure you get the best result from this treatment.
