Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic treatment in which your provider uses a special tool to create tiny, invisible puncture wounds on your skin’s surface. The wounds then activate your skin’s natural healing process, which triggers the production of collagen.
Advance Practice Care LLC performs microneedling to address many beauty concerns, including:
Advance Practice Care LLC will soon be offering Botox services for fine lines and wrinkles as well. Depending on your specific needs, your provider at Advance Practice LLC can customize your treatment plan.
Microneedling will take about an hour. To reduce any discomfort you might experience during your session, your provider applies a numbing cream to your skin.
After your microneedling session, you may experience some redness at the treatment site. These side effects subside within three to four days. Your provider might also recommend you to stay out of the sun for at least one week following your treatment.
You may notice an improvement in your skin after your first microneedling session. However, Advance Practice Care LLC recommends three to four treatments for optimal results.
Microneedling is well-tolerated by most people, and the side effects after treatment are temporary. You may experience some pinkness or scabbing around the treatment area following your microneedling session, but these will fade within a few days.
There are several benefits to microneedling. Microneedling promotes the production of collagen and elastin, leaving you with plumper, smoother, and younger-looking skin. Your provider performs microneedling in a quick, painless, and convenient in-office treatment.
The treatment is also safe and effective for most skin types and there’s no downtime. After your treatment, your provider can make recommendations to improve and prolong your results.
