Improve the Quality of Your Skin With Microneedling

Microneedling is a common, safe way to tighten and smooth the skin, as well as promote healthier skin texture and tone. Microneedling can also help reduce blemishes and other cosmetic concerns that can make the skin look unattractive.  At SDBotox in Austin, Texas, we perform microneedling to treat acne scars, surgical scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and sun-damaged skin, as well as other issues.

How Does Microneedling Work?

In general terms, microneedling stimulates the body's natural restorative process. Microneedling creates ‘micro-wounds’ to catalyze the skin into repairing itself, thereby replacing damaged collagen and elastin cells with newer, healthier ones that will make your skin softer, firmer, and more even-toned. At SDBotox, we treat the face, neck, and chest. With regular microneedling treatments, you will see a reduction in wrinkles, fine lines, scars, sunspots, and other blemishes and have an overall younger look. 

What Happens During a Microneedling Treatment?

Once you are completely comfortable, our expert aesthetic nurses will prep your skin by cleaning it of any creams or makeup. Next, your skin will be prepped, and a topical numbing cream applied to ensure your complete comfort for the length of the session. 

Then a microneedling wand, composed of many tiny needles, will be gently applied to the target area. A specialized serum is applied topically, which further helps improve the condition of the skin. Each session is about 30 minutes long, and typically patients require a series of sessions for optimal results. 

How Do I Know if Microneedling is for Me?

Skin quality is a huge factor when it comes to appearing vibrant and youthful, and one that cannot be fixed with surgery. Non-invasive procedures like microneedling help you achieve smooth, unblemished skin. Those who with the following concerns on their faces, necks, or chests, are typically good candidates for microneedling in Austin with our team: 

  • Sun damaged skin
  • Surgical scars
  • Rough skin
  • Rosacea
  • Stretchmarks
  • Fine lines, wrinkles

Will I Need Time To Recover?

Microneedling requires no downtime, and most people return to work and social activities after treatment. It is not uncommon to experience some soreness and tenderness after, with mild redness or bruising. This usually disappears in 2-4 days. It is very important to protect your skin from the sun with the use of medical-grade sunscreen and full-coverage hats for the next week or so. Places with excessive heat, like saunas, tanning beds, and jacuzzis should also be avoided for about a week.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

You will see an improvement in skin quality on the day of your treatment, and as time goes on, the skin on your face, neck, or chest will become increasingly brighter and firmer, leaving you with a dewy, hydrated appearance that looks young and luminous  Because microneedling stimulates the production of new elastin and collagen cells, it takes about 4-6 weeks to see peak results. With routine treatments, fine lines and wrinkles will disappear, scars, age spots, and other blemishes will fade, and pores will become smaller.
