Micro-Needling is a dermatological procedure that uses tiny needles to prick the first layer of the skin. The procedure is used to treat acne scars, wrinkles, and large pores. The tiny punctures stimulate the wound healing process, producing more collagen and elastin in the skin. It should be performed by a board-certified dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or medical aesthetics professional. For those experiencing these skin issues, this procedure could be a beneficial addition to your skin care regimen. Fort Wayne Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, as a division of Fort Wayne Dermatology Consultants Inc., is uniquely poised to offer this service safely and effectively to consumers in the Fort Wayne area.
Because a numbing agent is used for this procedure, you should not expect any pain. However, some areas of the face may be more sensitive than others. The total preparation and procedure is approximately two hours, and there is no down time required after the procedure. You may experience a little redness immediately after, and some itchiness or irritation may occur for those with sensitive skin. Any effects should diminish after a couple of hours.
Micro-Needling is beneficial because it boosts collagen production, which reduces wrinkles and lines and enhances the overall texture of the skin. You will experience glowing skin that feels substantially softer. You may also find that skin care products have more of a penetrating effect afterwards. You will likely notice brighter, firmer skin after just a few sessions of this minimally invasive procedure. It’s as if the skin goes through a regeneration process for a fresh, new start!
