Age may have some unfavorable effects on your skin. It often causes loose skin and skin blemishes. Of course, a healthy skincare routine is always beneficial, but it may not be enough to rejuvenate your skin. Surgery is highly effective, but it can be expensive and time-consuming. There is a non-surgical cosmetic skincare treatment that can improve the condition of your skin. Microneedling Wichita has helped many people obtain healthier skin.
Here at ICT Eye, we offer microneedling to help you take care of your skin. Dr. Jennifer Burgoyne, M.D., board-certified ophthalmologist and surgeon, will ensure your microneedling session goes smoothly. For more information on microneedling and how it can benefit your skin, contact us online or visit us in Wichita, KS.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is an advanced cosmetic treatment that addresses a number of different skin concerns. It can target your skin at the surface and at the deeper layers. Microneedling is an effective treatment for acne scars, acne, sun spots, stretch marks, and wrinkles. It stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins essential for healthy skin. Sadly, as you age, the production of collagen and elastin slows down in your body. Microneedling relies on the practice of collagen induction therapy to yield effective results.
We use a device with tiny needles to puncture your skin and create microchannels. Your skin will view these microchannels as wounds that need healing. This triggers a healing response in your body to send more blood to the affected area. The increased blood supply will improve the condition of damaged skin, including scar tissue, blemishes, and loose skin.
Microneedling In Wichita Benefits
There are many non-surgical treatments on the market. Why should you choose microneedling services to benefit your skin? Here are a few reasons to consider this treatment.
You can pair other cosmetic treatments with your microneedling treatment to achieve optimal results.
Since microneedling is a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment, there is no downtime associated with it. You can continue with your important daily activities right after your microneedling treatment.
Microneedling does not rely on heat energy or harmful chemicals but uses your body’s own healing powers. This makes it a low-risk treatment with little to no risks.
Since microneedling treatments encourage the natural increase in collagen over a few months, the results will be discreet and natural looking.
Am I a Suitable Candidate for Microneedling?
While microneedling treatments are ideal for treating wrinkles and fine lines, they can also treat various other skin conditions in younger patients. In fact, you can include microneedling treatments in your regular skincare routine to keep your skin smooth and youthful. Microneedling can treat a number of skin conditions but can also be used as a preventative treatment to maintain healthy skin.
For example, microneedling can improve the complexion and texture of your skin. Microneedling is suitable for most skin types and tones. However, it is best to schedule a consultation with us so that we can discuss the benefits of using microneedling for your particular skin concern.
Schedule a Consultation
Before we begin your treatment, we will assess your skin concerns and explain our Wichita microneedling treatment in more detail. This will help us determine whether microneedling is the right treatment for your skin concerns.
You can also ask us questions to ensure you understand the treatment and are satisfied with what it can and can’t do for your skin. By understanding the process of the treatment, you can have peace of mind when making a decision. We will offer you expert advice to help you choose the right treatment.
The Microneedling Treatment
We will explain the treatment process in more detail when you visit us for a consultation. For now, here is what a typical microneedling treatment is like.
As the microneedling process begins, we will clean the treatment area thoroughly and apply a topical numbing cream to prevent any pain or discomfort. While microneedling treatments are not painful, we prefer to avoid discomfort from the start.
Once the numbing cream is working, we will start the treatment. We will move an advanced handpiece with tiny needles over your skin to puncture it. These tiny punctures will trigger your natural ability to heal, causing scar tissue and damaged skin to repair themselves. Microneedling forces your body to regenerate new skin cells, providing you with smoother, softer skin.
Once this is done, we can apply skin serums to hydrate your skin and keep it nourished. The microchannels also make your skin more responsive to other skincare products for maximum absorption.
How Long Does a Microneedling Treatment Take?
We can’t provide a definitive answer to that question. It all depends on the area you are treating. Of course, larger areas will take longer to treat. However, microneedling treatments are typically quick to perform. You won’t have to worry about lengthy sessions if you lead a busy life.
Microneedling works at the deeper layers of your skin, so time is needed for it to yield results. Microneedling stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, and this happens over the next few weeks after your treatment. It also takes some time for your body to heal the micro-wounds and other damaged tissue in the treatment area.
You can schedule microneedling treatments every few months to maintain and improve the microneedling results. We typically recommend that our patients schedule their microneedling treatments in Wichita every month or two.
