Transform Your Skin with Microneedling Treatment
Are you looking for a noninvasive and effective way to rejuvenate your skin that provides lasting results without the inconvenience and lengthy recovery of other treatment options? Microneedling, available at Brentwood Skin Clinic in Nashville, TN under the direction of experienced physician Dr. Austin Mitchell, may be right for you. Read on to learn more about the benefits of SkinPen® microneedling, including how this popular treatment can help transform your complexion and boost your self-confidence.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is an aesthetic skin rejuvenation treatment that involves the use of tiny, fine-gauge needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin's surface. This process stimulates the body's natural healing response, promoting the production of collagen and elastin, two essential building blocks for firm, youthful skin. Potential results of microneedling include improved skin texture, reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and a more youthful-looking complexion overall.
How does microneedling work?
At Brentwood Skin Clinic, we utilize the SkinPen device for our Nashville, TN microneedling patients. This advanced technology allows for precise and controlled penetration of the skin, encouraging optimal results and reducing discomfort and downtime. The SkinPen's fine needles create micro-channels in the skin, stimulating the production of new, healthy supplies of collagen and elastin. This process also enhances the skin’s ability to absorb topical skincare products for further boosted results.
What does microneedling help with?
Microneedling is a versatile treatment that can address a wide range of common skin concerns, including:
- Fine lines
- Rough skin
- Oily skin
- Dry skin
- Acne scars uneven
- Dull skin tone
Microneedling can also be used to reduce enlarged pores and improve hyperpigmentation, giving you a more even and radiant complexion. Following a thorough skin assessment, our knowledgeable team will discuss your concerns and customize a microneedling treatment plan to help meet your unique needs.
Does microneedling hurt?
To begin your microneedling treatment, a numbing cream will be applied to the skin’s surface to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Once the numbing takes effect, the SkinPen will be gently glided over the treatment areas, creating micro-injuries. The length and depth of the needles will be adjusted based on your skin's condition and the targeted concerns. Most patients describe the sensation as a mild prickling feeling, and any discomfort is typically minimal and does not linger after treatment.
How long is recovery after microneedling?
One of the most compelling advantages of microneedling is that it requires minimal downtime compared to more invasive procedures. After the treatment, your skin may appear slightly red and feel sensitive, similar to a sunburn. However, these effects usually subside within a day or two. You may also experience some mild peeling or flaking as your skin heals. It is important to follow post-treatment care instructions closely to ensure optimal healing and results.
How soon will I notice a difference after microneedling?
The results of microneedling will gradually appear over the course of several days or weeks as the skin heals and new collagen supplies begin accumulating. Many patients notice improvements in skin texture and tone within a few weeks after their initial treatment. However, optimal results are typically achieved after a series of sessions spaced several weeks apart. Our experienced team will create a personalized microneedling treatment schedule for you, taking into account your skin concerns and desired outcomes.
