Rejuvenating the skin’s appearance and natural, healthy glow is simple with the assistance of our team at Houston Dermatology Associates of Houston, Texas. We work hard to provide professional services customized and tailored to your needs. Our dermatologists serve patients in and around the community with general, medical, and cosmetic dermatology solutions, including specialized treatments such as microneedling. Microneedling is one of several skin rejuvenation treatments that have grown in popularity over the last few years because it uses the body’s natural healing process to improve the skin’s appearance and health.
Microneedling is a unique procedure in which small needles puncture the skin, creating tiny wounds that stimulate collagen and elastin production. It’s often called “collagen induction therapy” because of its ability to increase one’s natural collagen production. The process works by using tiny needles, often 0.25mm or less in size, to puncture the skin and create thousands of tiny microchannels. This causes a wound-healing response in the body that triggers the production of new collagen and elastin to heal the wounds. When collagen and elastin production is boosted, it can enhance the skin’s overall health and appearance.
Microneedling is a treatment used to improve skin texture and tone and is best for addressing common issues such as:
Professional microneedling is a safe procedure for most people. It is generally safe for patients of all skin types, including darker tones that are more prone to hyperpigmentation. Regardless, it would be best to talk with the doctors at Houston Dermatology Associates before having any cosmetic procedures done to ensure the treatment is proper for you and the results will be what you expect. It is crucial that patients understand what can and cannot be achieved with treatments such as microneedling and that they have realistic expectations of the final results.
The schedule for microneedling treatment varies from patient to patient. Some patients start with several treatments spaced weeks apart to achieve their desired results. Then, routine treatments done every few months can assist in maintaining the changes that have occurred. Many patients find that working microneedling into their regular skin care regimen is the best way to achieve results and keep the skin looking healthy. Routine treatments can also slow the process of aging on the skin while allowing patients to keep their youthful, natural glow as collagen and elastin stores are rebuilt. Patients can also combine other skin treatments with microneedling for more dramatic improvements in a shorter period.
