Microneedling is an advanced cosmetic technique that causes the skin to restore itself by making tiny punctures in the facial skin. Alta Vista Dermatology offers microneedling and other skin care treatments to those living in and around Denver and Highlands Ranch, CO.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic technique, sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy, that makes microscopic punctures in the skin to trigger collagen production and skin rejuvenation. This is done using a rolling device that is covered with minuscule needles. This treatment can be used to treat scarring, wrinkles, acne, and a number of other skin concerns.
During the microneedling treatment, the roller device will be applied to the skin, making tiny punctures. This can be somewhat uncomfortable for some patients, so we offer a topical anesthetic to minimize any pain during treatment. After a single pass of the skin, treatment is complete. This process usually takes about 30 minutes.
Microneedling and PRP Therapy at Alta Vista Dermatology
At Alta Vista Dermatology, we have found great success combining microneedling treatments with PRP therapy for improved rejuvenation benefits. The restorative powers of the platelets in your blood cells maximize the effects of microneedling, allowing patients to achieve significant rejuvenation results in a shorter period. This can also help to address puffiness or dark circles under the eyes, contributing to a more youthful appearance.
What Can I Expect After Microneedling?
Microneedling makes tiny pricks into the skin, so it is common to experience redness, swelling, and tenderness after your treatment. These effects should fade on their own within a few days as the skin heals. However, the superficial swelling that occurs can help contribute to a more radiant appearance during this time. Collagen production is stimulated immediately after treatment, and will contribute to a gradual increase in the texture and appearance of the skin over the following weeks and months. Some patients may need additional treatments to achieve their desired results. We recommend having monthly microneedling treatments to maintain and improve results.
