Regain Your Youthful Glow This Year With Microneedling

Between dry, cold winter air and natural aging, you might have noticed that your skin doesn’t look as healthy and fresh as it once did. Age and environment can leave your skin dry, dull, and looking a bit lackluster. Aging skin can affect your self-confidence and enjoyment of life. Why not make this the year that you do something about it?

As you age, your skin stops producing the same amount of collagen that it did when you were younger. Collagen gives your skin volume and elasticity, and reduced collagen production means saggier, more sallow skin.

But did you know that you have options to renew your youthful glow? At Cleveland Family Health, we offer microneedling, one of the most popular cosmetic procedures to boost your collagen production.

How microneedling brings back your glow

In a microneedling facial at Cleveland Family Health, Marian Keen, PA-C, uses many tiny needles attached to a roller to pierce the surface of your skin. Piercing the skin creates hundreds of tiny injuries just below the surface, which stimulates collagen production.

Increased collagen production increases the volume of the layer just beneath the surface of your skin, filling in fine lines and wrinkles and bringing back some of those plump contours that your face may have lost as it’s aged.

In addition to revitalizing your skin and giving it that youthful glow, microneedling has some other cosmetic benefits, too. Collagen regeneration can help correct a variety of skin imperfections. Microneedling can improve the look of acne scars, minimize pore size, and help repair areas affected by sun damage.

Ready to try microneedling?

Before you begin your microneedling treatment, you sit down with Marian and talk about your goals. She may recommend a series of treatments for best results. While microneedling is a great option for both men and women seeking to refresh their skin, it’s not right for everyone. If you’re pregnant or are taking certain kinds of medication, you should not have microneedling treatments.

One microneedling session takes just 30 minutes or less. Marian washes your skin and prepares it for the microneedling procedure. Using a roller, she treats the target area.

Although microneedling uses microscopic needles to puncture your skin, the procedure is minimally invasive. Many patients report only mild discomfort, and we can apply a numbing cream to help ease any discomfort you may experience.

Consider platelet-rich plasma treatment

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be used as an add-on treatment during your microneedling session to enhance your results. Using your own blood, our team separates out the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of your blood and develops a solution using the plasma.

Then we massage the solution into your skin during or immediately after your microneedling treatment. PRP has been shown to magnify the results of microneedling, and it’s a popular addition to the cosmetic procedure. Using microneedling and PRP in tandem can boost collagen production beyond that of only microneedling, improving results even more.

Following your microneedling session, your face may be slightly red or irritated. These symptoms should disappear after a few days, and you’ll be left with rejuvenated skin and a healthy glow. For some, undergoing multiple microneedling sessions produces the best results. Marian makes customized recommendations for you based on your aesthetic goals.

If you’re frustrated with the look of aging facial skin, it’s time to learn if microneedling is right for you. For many patients, microneedling is a safe and effective way to enhance the skin’s collagen production, renewing a youthful glow.
