Skin imperfections such as visible blemishes, signs of aging, and scarring may negatively impact your appearance and, as a result, your self-confidence. However, instead of considering treatments that focus on superficial improvements exclusively, consider undergoing microneedling in Encino. The treatment relies on the body’s own healing process while stimulating the growth of essential proteins and fibers for healthy skin.
Most microneedling patients require several treatment sessions for substantial results, but this non-invasive procedure poses few risks and minimal recovery time. Further, the cosmetic and emotional benefits of microneedling treatments are long-lasting for many patients. Schedule a microneedling consultation at AESTHETICA LA for more details and to discuss whether it is the best treatment option for you.
Microneedling treatments work their magic by relying on your body’s natural response to injuries, including producing new, healthy skin cells. For this, microneedling treatments in Encino use specialized devices containing thin needles to pierce the skin, creating micro-injuries. In response, the skin replaces dead and damaged skin cells with new cells, leading to visible reductions of blemishes and hyperpigmentation.
In addition to new cell growth, the skin produces healthier elastin and collagen fibers, strengthening the skin’s support and structure. Subsequently, the treatments could restore youthfulness to the skin as minor fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin diminish. Further, the treatment could reduce the same skin concerns in areas beyond the face, such as stretch marks on the abdomen and cellulite on the thighs.
Another advantage of microneedling procedures is the promotion of increased blood circulation to treatment areas. From this increased circulation, the treatment could increase hair growth, most often on the scalp or areas affected by alopecia.
Microneedling patients in Encino seek treatment for a variety of routine reasons, often including wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and mildly loose skin from collagen decreases. Similarly, the treatment is an excellent option for reducing stretch marks and acne scarring, as these marks develop due to irregular collagen formation. The common reasons for undergoing microneedling treatments include correcting uneven skin texture, sun damage, large pores, and other types of hyperpigmentation.
In addition to skin improvement, microneedling treatments could stimulate new hair growth and reduce cellulite by stimulating blood circulation and collagen fiber growth in areas beyond the face. Unlike several other cosmetic skin treatments, microneedling is safe for darker skin tones, as it does not risk hyperpigmentation due to dermal damage. However, individuals with active acne breakouts are not ideal microneedling candidates, since the treatment could potentially spread acne-causing bacteria across a wider area of the skin.
Aging skin and visible flaws, such as hyperpigmentation, could significantly impact your appearance, self-confidence, and quality of life. If this is happening to you, consider the long-term emotional and cosmetic benefits of microneedling in Encino. After several non-invasive treatment sessions, your skin could look noticeably smoother and firmer as collagen and elastin increase to rebuild its strength and support.
In addition, as your body produces new skin cells to replace areas with minimal damage from microneedling, you could see a reduction of visible marks on the skin in four to six weeks. However, the treatment does have a few patient limitations, as it may pose additional risks for individuals with particular skin conditions. Therefore, consider consulting with our experienced skincare team to determine if microneedling is the best treatment for your cosmetic goals.
