Though the thought of facial, neck and hand micro needling treatments may sound a little intimidating at first, it has some major skin renewing benefits! It is a very safe, natural and affordable anti-aging treatment.
Partington Plastic Surgery & Laser Center has been voted the best place to receive micro needling treatments in Seattle and Bellevue, Washington. Micro needling is a natural way to accelerate your skin’s rejuvenating process and improve the appearance of scars and pores, as well as improve skin firmness.
How Does it work?
Medical Microneedling has been around since 1980 yet has become all the rage in the last few years. Also known as dermal needling, mechanical fraxel, or ‘pen needling’ micro needling is a non-heat based treatment where multiple fine-tipped needles create tiny punctures in the skin. This causes the skin to immediately react by initiating the “wound healing process”. By triggering this skin renewing process, it will then accelerate the time it takes your skin to fade scars, blemishes, and improve texture on its own. This service can be performed on all skin types, including ethnic skin and topical anesthetics are used to minimize any discomfort.
Will it Damage My Skin?
Micro needling does not actually damage your skin. By making tiny pinholes into the skin it does not harm the epidermis, but rather encourages it to speed up its healing process. The process performed by the skin is 100% natural; micro needling makes the whole process faster. You may experience some redness and sensitivity post-treatment as well as some minor peeling. It is best to be gentle with your skin for a few days until those symptoms subside.
How Soon Can I Expect Results?
Most people see and feel results immediately after the needling procedure. After about a week the process of collagen forming slows down, but then speeds up from 4 to 8 weeks when you can really see the difference and the results. After needling, your results will depend on your regeneration process but also on your genetics, and how much and how often you wrinkle your skin (forehead, area around your eyes). Most individuals have between 1-3 treatments over a period of 6 months and then schedule a treatment as needed. The treatment itself takes between 30-60 minutes depending on the area treated.
How Much Does It Cost
Microneedling is very affordable. Costs range based on areas being treated, depth of scars and frequency of treatments. Treatments start at $250-$500.
