Microneedling procedures are increasingly in demand among our Costa Mesa patients seeking non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments. If you are dealing with skin problems like scars, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, or stretch marks, you should consider this minimally-invasive procedure that can have you back at work or your daily life immediately after your treatment.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation technique involving the delivery of microscopic punctures to the surface layers of skin. This triggers a self-repair process that coaxes your body into laying down a fresh collagen matrix to renew skin affected by acne scars, sun damage, or signs of aging.
How Does the Treatment Work?
A needling session in Costa Mesa involves light damage to surface layers of skin to stimulate your body’s own natural production of collagen. Over the following weeks and months after your treatment, your skin will be naturally remodeled in a very gradual and powerful way.
Who Makes a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
Those who respond best to needling tend to be in good overall health with skin that does not require cosmetic surgery. If you are currently dealing with an active skin infection or breakout, you would need to resolve those conditions prior to undergoing this procedure.
What Happens at the Appointment?
We begin your microneedling treatment in Costa Mesa by numbing your skin with a topical anesthetic. We then pass a small device over your skin. This device is coated in tiny, sterile needles that pierce skin at a shallow depth. Although these microscopic injuries cannot normally be seen by the naked eye, they stimulate the production of natural collagen to minimize many common skin conditions.
Microneedling offers significant results that appear very gradually and subtly. We are working with the innate healing abilities of your own body instead of injecting you with exotic substances or dramatically altering your facial contours. Your results will continue to build in the weeks and months after your treatment.
Does Microneedling Work with Other Types of Procedures?
A needling session can be performed in conjunction with the application of topical skin care products for a dramatic improvement in results. The needling process creates thousands of microscopic channels in your skin. This allows topicals to bypass the outer barrier of the skin and enjoy improved penetration for dramatically enhanced skin absorption.
