Increasing the amount of collagen and elastin is one of the most effective ways to reduce signs of aging. Microneedling treatments at Alta Vista Dermatology boost these key proteins to help men and women in Denver, Highlands Ranch and surrounding areas of Colorado rejuvenate their skin.
What is Microneedling?
Also known as “collagen induction therapy,” microneedling is an advanced skin treatment that reduces minor flaws and signs of aging. The secret behind the treatment is the way that your body responds to wounds in the skin. When your skin is injured, the body closes the opening by quickly building new fibers of collagen and elastin. Microneedling introduces small openings in the skin with a series of needles to produce the same response.
What are the Benefits of Microneedling?
- Helps your body produce more collagen and elastin
- Recommended for lines, wrinkles, dull complexion and other common concerns
- Great for younger and older skin
- Treatment takes less than one hour
- Safe and effective on most skin types
- No downtime needed
- No scarring
What Can I Expect from a Microneedling Treatment?
Your skin may have a pinkish appearance after the treatment. Apart from any recovery serums we provide, you should not use makeup or other skin products for at least six hours. Optimal results are typically seen with three microneedling treatments that are administered every four to six weeks.
Collagen production can take weeks to several months, but you will see an immediate “glow” as the skin starts the healing process that lasts several days without pain or redness. Protect your skin with a professional sunscreen to extend the results of your microneedling treatment.
How Much Does Microneedling Cost?
A consultation at our office allows us to examine your skin and determine how many microneedling treatments are needed. After the appointment, we let you know how much your microneedling will cost. For your convenience, Alta Vista Dermatology accepts payment by cash, check and credit card. We also work with CareCredit® to offer financing options to our patients.
