None of us want to look as old as our chronological age says we are. We look in the mirror and see fine lines and wrinkles, skin that wasn’t as full as it once was, sun damage and more. At Garza Plastic Surgery, we believe everyone can look young and fresh, with skin that is free of acne scars, enlarged pores and wrinkles. That’s why we’re proud to offer micro-needling treatments at our Belle Meade office.
What Are Micro-Needling Treatments?
Micro-needling is a cosmetic treatment that has been around for a long time but has recently gained massive amounts of traction. On the day of your treatment, once your skin has been cleaned and prepared, a special device is used in order to create many tiny micro-channels in the surface. This ultimately stimulates the skin’s natural repairing process.
What to Do Afterwards
The better you take care of your skin following the treatment, the longer the results will last. The most important skin care step you need to do is follow our team’s instructions regarding aftercare. Also, the better hydrated you are, the healthier your skin will be. Avoid using harsh products on your face for the first week or so after the treatment. Your skin care products should not contain active ingredients that will harm the treatment area.
Stimulate Your Skin with Collagen
The goal of micro-needling is to enhance the appearance of your face by stimulating collagen production. Following your treatment, you will see the results gradually appear as more collagen is produced in areas that need it most.
Avoid Unprotected Sun Exposure
Another skin care technique you need to use is to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun. When you go outside, cover your face properly. Ask our professional what sunscreen you should use following your treatment. Your pores will remain open, and you don’t want to absorb any harmful chemicals.
The Many Benefits of Micro-Needling
The benefits of micro-needling are numerous. Most people seek this treatment to refresh their skin when sun damage or the aging process causes uneven pigmentation. This treatment also shrinks your pores by stimulating the growth of collagen around them. It can make topical medication more effective by enhancing your skin’s ability to absorb them.
