Many factors can contribute to visible changes in your skin, including sun damage and the decline of elastin and collagen production. Though these changes are inevitable in most cases, you could minimize their visible impacts on your skin with microneedling in West Hills. Unlike some other non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments, microneedling could make immediate skin improvements while stimulating healthy skin for the long-term.
In most cases, microneedling patients need three to six treatments to achieve their ideal results, with enhancements lasting for several months afterward. While there are minimal side effects and few risks to consider before treatment, it is always best to consult with a professional prior to any procedure. During an initial consultation, our board-certified surgeon Dr. Yaghoubian could explain how the treatments work in further detail and answer any questions you may have.

Microneedling treatments in West Hills aim to make improvements by first creating minor surface-level damage using thin needles to pierce the skin. More specifically, the treatment stimulates the body’s natural healing process with these micro-injuries, including cell regrowth. Thus, as healthy cells replace dead or damaged ones, the visibility of blemishes, hyperpigmentation, and other marks on the skin diminish.
In addition, when microneedling treatments penetrate deeper dermal layers, it stimulates the growth of collagen and elastin, the essential proteins for maintaining skin structure and support. As a result, patients typically see a reduction of mild to moderate aging signs in the months after microneedling treatments as the collagen and elastin continue to build up.
Patients can customize their microneedling treatments by adjusting needle length, width, and depth. Altering the needle specifications allows an esthetician to target specific skin concerns more effectively. Further, these changes could reduce the potential risks and complications of microneedling for certain patients.
One of the primary reasons individuals undergo microneedling treatments in West Hills is to restore youthfulness to the skin by increasing collagen and elastin. Specifically, microneedling could reduce mild and moderate signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and age spots. In addition, the treatment could reduce acne scarring and stretch marks by breaking down and replacing irregular collagen.
Beyond restoring a youthful look to the skin, microneedling procedures are an excellent option for reducing hyperpigmentation and sun damage, including sunspots. In addition to a more uniform skin tone and fewer blemishes, microneedling could restore an even skin texture to rejuvenate your appearance further.
In some cases, this technique could target areas beyond the face to improve scars, stretch marks, and signs of aging in other places. For instance, common concerns for microneedling patients include reducing cellulite and stimulating hair growth.
Changes to your skin from age, sun damage, or external trauma often leave visible impacts that, in turn, negatively impact your self-confidence. Though there are several non-invasive treatment options for superficial cosmetic concerns, longer-lasting improvements are possible with microneedling in West Hills. This procedure aims to increase your skin’s natural elastin and collagen production to minimize aging signs at their source.
Beyond improving the skin’s underlying support and structure, microneedling treatments encourage healthier skin cell growth and blood circulation to treatment areas. As a result, most patients experience cosmetic, medical, and emotional benefits from undergoing microneedling treatments.
