What is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also commonly known as skin needling, collagen induction therapy, and percutaneous collagen induction, is a minimally invasive procedure used to rejuvenate the uppermost layers of skin. With the help of a microneedling device, the skin is punctured with tiny holes to create a series of micro, controlled injuries that prompt the body to produce new collagen. The new collagen helps to heal the tiny puncture wounds, while improving the overall texture and firmness of the skin and reducing scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
McGuiness Dermatology utilizes SkinPen for all Dallas microneedling treatment. This device is smartly designed to respect the delicacies of all skin types. The SkinPen allows for a minimally invasive procedure with short recovery periods.
How Does Microneedling Work?
This procedure can be used all over the body, but is most often used for the face, neck, and chest. Depending on the purpose of the microneedling treatment, patients can expect multiple sessions separated by an interval of 4-6 weeks. There is little to no downtime after treatment, and generally the only side effect is some slight redness on the treated areas that fades by the next day.
It is highly recommended to make an appointment with a specialist to prevent any scarring or infection. Microneedling is used in situations where lasers or other deeper methods of treatment would be inappropriate and can be used in tandem with other cosmetic procedures.
