Microneedling in Boca Raton, FL
Located in Boca Raton and serving the residents of West Palm Beach and all of South Florida, Sanctuary Medical Center offers microneedling, a non-surgical, cosmetic procedure that helps rejuvenate your skin.
What is microneedling and how does it work?
Over time, your skin experiences a decrease in collagen production, which causes the skin to lose elasticity and become less firm as you age. Microneedling, which is mainly used on the face, is a safe and effective cosmetic treatment procedure that can help skin stay firm, soft, and toned. This cosmetic procedure, sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy or dermarolling, works by slightly injuring the skin with tiny pinpricks in order to help promote collagen growth.
Why you may consider microneedling
Along with helping to promote collagen production, microneedling can be used in the treatment and removal of various cosmetic conditions, mainly regarding the face. Microneedling can also be applied to other areas of the body, helping with stretch mark removal, treating hair loss, reducing back acne, and more. Microneedling can be used to help treat:
- Acne scars and other types of scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles e.g., under the eyes or around the lips
- Oversized pores
- Age spots
- Uneven skin tone
- Loss of skin elasticity
What does microneedling involve?
Microneedling involves your doctor making tiny pricks into the surface of your skin to help create “micro” injuries. This helps stimulate natural collagen production in the skin, which helps rejuvenate your skin. Prior to the procedure, your doctor may apply a numbing agent to the targeted areas of skin in order to minimize pain. Once you are relaxed and comfortable, your doctor will begin the procedure, carefully and evenly gliding a microneedling pen across your face until all necessary areas have been treated.
What is microneedling recovery like?
Microneedling involves minimum risk of side effects, allowing you to return to your normal activities on the same day as your procedure. During the first few days of your procedure, you may experience signs of redness and skin irritation — this is a normal reaction of the skin to injury. To help protect your skin, aftercare, which includes the use of sunscreen or other topical creams, may be required. For the best possible before and after results, your doctor may suggest an appropriate aftercare regimen, along with additional microneedling sessions.
