Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses fine needles to stimulate skin rejuvenation through many controlled ultra-fine punctures made to the skin. Through this process, the body is stimulated to produce new collagen and elastin to heal the treated skin layers. The result is improved texture, firmness, and overall youthful appearance.

While this procedure is not new, it is not as widely offered in medical settings as some other therapies. One of the benefits is cost-effectiveness when compared to other treatments, sometimes just due to the cost of those products. Only a topical anesthetic is necessary to painlessly administer the procedure, and no other products are required. Sometimes the provider will recommend a topical product to enhance results and encourage healthy skin, but the cost of these products is compared to many other antiaging skin treatments. It is often a good choice when other treatment methods are not ideal, based on skin type or treatment area. For maximum efficacy, it is wise to choose an experienced provider who can safely administer microneedling treatment.

Microneedling has proven to be effective in treating wrinkles and scarring, and may improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin. Skin conditions that respond well to microneedling therapy include:

  • Acne and chicken pox scarring
  • Surgical and burn scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Cellulite
  • Skin tone and texture
  • Pore refinement

The number of treatments required to achieve desired results will depend on the condition that’s being treated, the severity, and just how the individual’s skin responds. A period of four to six weeks is recommended between treatment sessions.

If you’re interested in improvement to any of the above named conditions but have been concerned about the cost of therapy, we invite you to schedule a personal consultation with Texas Vein & Aesthetics.
