Imperfections such as wrinkles, scarring, and hyperpigmentation can leave you feeling unhappy and unconfident in your skin. As you age, your collagen production decreases and highlights these signs of aging on your complexion. To reverse the hands of time and regain youthful, unblemished skin, consider microneedling in Tarzana.
This non-invasive cosmetic treatment reduces aging effects and skin impurities by increasing collagen and healthy cell production. Using thin needles to create micro-abrasions in the skin, microneedling kickstarts the body’s natural healing process. The body produces healthier skin cells and reduces visible cosmetic concerns. For brighter, clearer skin, consult the skilled team at AESTHETICA LA about this top-rated treatment option.
Microneedling is a non-surgical treatment for rejuvenating the skin and eliminating imperfections. During the treatment, tiny needles pierce the skin to create minor injuries that spur natural healing processes. Before penetrating the skin, your clinician may apply a topical numbing cream to reduce potential discomfort during the treatment.
After treatment, skin redness and swelling are typical side effects that subside within two to four days. A patient may receive multiple treatments at least one month apart to maintain results. At AESTHETICA LA, our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Yaghoubian has helped many Tarzana patients through microneedling, addressing problems such as:
Following the treatment, Dr. Yaghoubian may apply a calming treatment or serum to reduce redness and swelling. She will advise you to avoid skin irritants in the days after treatment to ensure the skin’s healing process is not disturbed. A crucial component of the recovery process is consistent use of sunscreen to avoid further skin irritation and damage.
After a microneedling treatment at our Tarzana practice, your skin will appear smoother, firmer, and more youthful due to new cell growth and collagen production. As the body heals the micro-injuries created during the treatment, new cells replace damaged ones to reduce visible wrinkles and scarring. Since new tissue is forming, collagen must also generate, ensuring long-term skin improvement after treatment.
Beyond the facial skin, microneedling is available for improving skin concerns on the body, such as the thighs, hips, and waistline. For these areas, microneedling can be used to reduce stretch marks for a more flawless body appearance. Microneedling is more effective for stretch marks than many other cosmetic treatments because the needles penetrate multiple skin layers to fully eliminate the imperfections.
At-home microneedling devices are available but come with more risks than professional treatments. Typically, the needles for at-home microneedling are not as sharp as professional needles, leading to increased chances of infection and inferior cosmetic results. If you are considering microneedling, speak with the team at AESTHETICA LA to learn the benefits of our professional, patient-centered practice.
Microneedling treatments aim to improve the skin by increasing collagen production and kickstarting healthy cell growth. The procedure achieves flawless skin by creating micro-injuries with thin, sharp needles that stimulate healing processes to replace damaged cells.
