Why would I need microneedling treatment?
Microneedling helps restore damaged and aged skin to a more youthful state. Fortunately, Noreen Kamal-Mostafavi, MD, in Staten Island, New York, provides premium skin rejuvenating service to restore your youthful glow.
How does microneedling work?
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure in which a doctor uses a special device outfitted with needles to prick the skin and stimulate new collagen production. Commonly used to minimize the signs of aging, injections can be added to create more tightness in the skin and to speed up the natural healing process.
Although microneedling can be used to treat scars and stretch marks on other areas of the body, treatments are designed for the face only. Microneedling is traditionally used to treat everything from age spots and wrinkles to scarring and other forms of hyper-pigmentation. injections may boost these effects and help to achieve your desired results more quickly. If you are in good health and looking to treat minor signs of aging, microneedling could be just what you need.
Microneedling, more commonly known as a rich solution of your body’s own healing components. The high concentration of thrombocytes delivers countless growth factor proteins to targeted areas.
Growth factors quickly get to work and begin rebuilding and repairing tissues. As the primary blood components that jump into action when you have an injury, growth factors stimulate cell turnover, trigger tissue development, and enhance the production of collagen and elastin.
What happens during a microneedling treatment?
All Dr. Noreen has to do to begin a facial is process a small amount of your blood in a centrifuge. Once it is ready — it takes about 10-15 minutes — she applies the microneedling directly to your skin.
To help microneedling penetrate as deeply as possible, we glide a microneedling tool over your skin. This step also helps create hundreds of microwounds for additional healing effects.
Part of your microneedling treatment may also involve injections into problem areas, like boxcar acne scars. Finally, we will counsel you on how to care for your skin as it heals over the following few days. Dr. Noreen offers premium skin care products for purchase, which can help your skin heal quickly after a microneedling service.
How long is the recovery time after microneedling ?
Your skin is likely going to be red, sore, and irritated for several hours after your facial treatment. These are normal side effects, and they let you know that blood flow is increasing to the area for optimal healing benefits.
Usually, within a week or two, you start gradually noticing the benefits of your microneedling treatment. Your pores continue tightening up, while wrinkles, lines, and acne scars gradually fade away.
It may take anywhere from four to six weeks for you to experience more dramatic results. But week after week, you should find that your skin continues to improve.
Individual results may vary.
