For people in the NYC area, it can be important to feel good about your skin. After all, New York City and the surrounding metropolitan area are well-known for having beautiful people, so it makes sense to want to achieve your own aesthetic goals. For many people, the easiest solution to perfect skin is with microneedling treatments at Simply.Aesthetics in Manasquan, NJ.
How Often Can You Do Microneedling?
This treatment can be done more regularly than you might think. Some people have this treatment as often as once every other month to once every six months to maintain their desired results. To achieve your desired results, you may need to have treatments as often as once a month to create a richer influx of new collagen production. Ultimately, the frequency of your treatment will depend on your skin needs, your goals, and where you are in your treatment plan.
How Does This Treatment Work?
Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment works by creating small micro-injuries in the upper dermal layers. These tiny injuries in the skin surface prompt your skin’s self-healing abilities; as your skin heals, it will produce higher quantities of collagen, fibrin, and elastin, which will smooth the appearance of your skin concerns.
Additionally, as part of the healing process, your skin cells will also shed more rapidly and turn over new, unblemished skin cells. In this way, this treatment is unique to other aesthetic treatments since it rejuvenates the appearance of the skin from the inside out. You can achieve comprehensive skin rejuvenation with this treatment.
What Can This Treatment Address?
There are many superficial skin concerns and no two people will have the same combination of concerns. However, microneedling is an ideal treatment because it can easily address a variety of concerns at one time. There are three main categories of concerns this treatment can address: scarring, anti-aging, and pigmentation.
Scarring caused by wounds to the skin, acne scarring, and stretch marks can all be easily addressed with this treatment. Acne scarring concerns are generally caused by improper collagen production while the skin is healing from a wound; when collagen is produced around inflamed areas of the skin, the collagen around the area will have a different texture from the surrounding skin. Stretch marks, on the other hand, are caused by the skin stretching too quickly without enough collagen or elastin.
This treatment can address scarring because it produces strong, healthy collagen naturally so the skin can heal itself properly. Even more importantly, the technique used for this treatment will break down scar tissue at the same time, which results in smooth, evenly-textured skin.
Age-related concerns include fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity – and each of these concerns is caused by the natural depletion of collagen levels within the skin as you age. By increasing collagen in the skin with this treatment, you can restore the firm structure of the skin and smooth away visible signs of aging. New elastin fibers created by this treatment will also restore the youthful “snap” of your skin.
Finally, pigmentation concerns are invariably caused by sun damage, hormones, or even old injuries to the skin (such as from acne or other wounds). While some pigmentation concerns may fade over time, some concerns can darken with more exposure to the sun or your skin can simply develop more blemishes. This treatment can reduce the appearance of some pigmentation concerns by speeding up cellular turnover.
How Long Will Results Last?
The results of this treatment will last for varying lengths of time depending on factors such as the skin concern you are treating, how long collagen lasts in your skin, and how well you take care of your skin between treatments. Some people can have results for anti-aging concerns for two to six months, while some people treating scarring can have results that last for several months to a year or longer.
Who Are Good Candidates?
One of the best things about this particular treatment is how many people are considered good candidates. In general, this treatment can be used with any skin type and skin tone without any concerns. This is ideal for people who have sensitive skin or other challenges that may prevent them from using treatments like lasers or chemical peels.
You will be assessed for this treatment at a consultation appointment. One of our skin experts will examine the condition of your skin and go over your aesthetic goals to determine whether or not this treatment is appropriate for you. If you have healthy skin and skin corners like acne or psoriasis are well-controlled, you will likely be a good candidate. Some pregnant and breastfeeding women may also be good candidates for this treatment.
