No one wants to get older, but it's a natural part of life. Especially for those living in sunny California, you’ll eventually start to see years of sun exposure turn into fine lines, wrinkles, and sunspots. Many beauty products claim to erase the signs of aging but most contain harmful chemicals for your skin.
Now--there’s an all-natural procedure that can give you smoother, younger-looking with noticeable results. Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that can help shed years from your appearance in just one treatment!
The skincare experts at Shantique Med Spa, located in Torrance, California, are dedicated to helping patients look and feel their best with microneedling. Led by Dr. Shahinaz Soliman, our team is recognized for having a gentle, yet targeted approach that helps drastically improve a variety of skin concerns.
Here’s everything you need to know about the hottest all-natural skin rejuvenation treatment.
Forms of microneedling were used in ancient medicinal practices throughout history. Dr. Desmond Fenandes created a modern cosmetic approach in 1995 to help improve the appearance of scars and wrinkles.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling involves using a handheld device, called a dermaroller, which contains about 200 tiny needles between 0.5-2.5 millimeters in length. The device is gently run across your face, creating controlled pinpricks which triggers the body’s healing process. This process ultimately leaves behind smoother, more youthful skin.
Collagen and elastin production decreases as you age, oftentimes bringing on the dreaded wrinkles and dull-looking skin. Microneedling helps naturally stimulate your body’s collagen and elastin production.
The results of microneedling are among the best on the market. In a clinically proven study, patients saw a 400% increase in collagen and elastin.
Microneedling doesn’t just improve the appearance of wrinkles. It’s also effective in addressing problems like:
- Acne scars
- Dull skin
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin texture
Immediately after your session, you may experience some redness and mild swelling. This is a completely normal part of the healing process and usually subsides within 24 hours. Generally, over the next two weeks, the results of microneedling start to gradually appear.
Does it hurt?
Microneedling may sound painful, but the truth is, most patients tolerate the procedure very well. To keep you comfortable during your treatment, Dr. Soliman applies a topical anesthetic to your face. She lets this sit before starting the process, to ensure that you will feel the least amount of discomfort during treatment.
Patients generally don’t describe microneedling as painful but compare the feeling to tiny pinpricks. The treatment involving needles only lasts for about thirty minutes, which most patients agree goes by fairly quickly.
