What is Microneedling?
The skin is the largest organ in the human body. And it’s also the organ that takes the brunt of daily life, from enjoying the sun a little too much to forgetting to moisturize. Plus, as we age, our skin starts to lose its elasticity, resulting in wrinkles and fine lines. Microneedling can help turn back the hands of time and return your youthful glow.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling involves using a device to insert fine and short needles into your skin, creating tiny punctures. The needle pricks don’t go deep—they stop just under the surface. The small wounds inspire your body to create more elastin and collagen, thereby improving the look of your skin.
How Is the Therapy Performed?
At Balance Hormone Center, we deliver our microneedling services using the PiXel8-RF system. It’s minimally invasive, using radiofrequency to boost the results of the procedure. The RF beams are delivered directly into the skin to heat and stimulate collagen production.
The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, depending on the area of skin being treated. Additionally, you may require more than one treatment to reach your desired results. But don’t worry—RF microneedling has zero downtime. We can discuss your treatment needs with you during your first appointment.
Is It Safe?
Yes, microneedling is safe. Most patients experience mild side effects such as redness of the skin. This redness should disappear within 24 hours of treatment. Some patients also experience minor swelling in addition to redness.
The Many Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling offers many benefits for the skin throughout your body. For your face, microneedling can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, lift your eyes, improve acne scarring, and improve the tone and texture of your skin.
Most patients think microneedling is only used on the face, which isn’t true. In fact, microneedling can be used on other areas of your body such as your legs and stomach. Microneedling improves the look of stretch marks, reduces pore size and even reduces excessive sweating. It can also be used to tighten the skin and improve cellulite.
