Enjoy Long-Lasting Skin Revitalization With Microneedling in Austin

If your skin isn’t looking as vibrant and radiant as it used to, it may just need a boost to restore its youthful glow. Skin rejuvenation is a broad category that encompasses a wide range of treatments, but one of the most popular and effective procedures today is microneedling. At Austin Cosmetic Medspa, our medspa team is proud to offer the first FDA-cleared microneedling device for scar treatment and skin rejuvenation, called SkinPen.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that uses tiny needles to rejuvenate the skin, reduce signs of aging, and stimulate collagen production. During the treatment, these tiny needles create “micro-wounds” in the dermal layers of the targeted skin, penetrating at specific depths based on the patient’s unique goals. These little wounds trigger the body’s natural healing process, which leads to the generation of new, healthy skin cells. This new skin then gradually replaces the damaged outer layer of skin, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and various other imperfections in the process.

The microneedling process also stimulates the body to increase its production of collagen, an essential protein for the health and structure of the skin. This provides long-term benefits to the skin’s tone and texture, leading to a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling is a cutting-edge skin rejuvenation treatment that can offer all of the following benefits:

  • Firm, radiant, youthful-looking skin
  • Reduces signs of aging skin, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity
  • Reduction of various cosmetic issues, including acne scars, enlarged pores, and stretch marks
  • Increases collagen production
  • Long-lasting, natural-looking results
  • Little to no recovery time
  • Customizable results
  • Enhances skin tone and texture
  • Improves self-confidence

What to Expect During the Microneedling Procedure

Before your microneedling procedure, you’ll first sit down for a private consultation with one of our medspa’s aesthetic professionals. They’ll discuss the treatment with you, examine your skin, and listen to your specific cosmetic goals. This will allow them to create a treatment plan that’s custom-tailored to your unique needs. Our medspa team performs microneedling procedures in a safe and precise manner with the use of a sterile needle head.

A topical anesthetic is applied 30 minutes before the microneedling treatment begins to ensure your comfort. Once the numbing cream has taken effect, your provider will glide the SkinPen microneedling device across the surface of your skin. The device will then deliver the tiny needles into the dermal layers of your skin at the precise depth needed to achieve your desired results. You will be able to leave our office immediately following your procedure.

Microneedling Recovery and Aftercare

While you will be able to head home right after your treatment, you should expect to see some swelling and redness for the first day. It will likely be comparable to a sunburn, but since you won’t be able to apply makeup right away to cover it up, you might be more comfortable relaxing at home after your treatment. We will send you home with products specifically designed for use after a SkinPen treatment, which help promote healing.

Bruising can also occur in the treatment area but is typically mild and short-lived. Discomfort is rarely enough to keep you from any activities you would like to do, although we recommend avoiding strenuous exercise or heavy sweating for the first few days since they can irritate the skin. By the second day, you will be able to cover up residual redness with makeup, and by the third day, your side effects should be nearly gone. Sun protection will be imperative in the weeks following your treatment to ensure no further damage occurs while your skin heals.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Microneedling?

Microneedling can be an effective treatment for any adults looking to achieve non-surgical skin rejuvenation. The procedure is safe for all skin types and tones. Microneedling is often a good option for people dealing with skin imperfections such as wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, stretch marks, and skin laxity.

Microneedling is most commonly used to revitalize the facial skin, but it can also be used to treat other areas, including the chest, abdomen, back, neck, hands, and legs.

To be an ideal candidate for the procedure, you should meet the following requirements:

  • Be in good physical health
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Not be currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have no active skin infections near the treatment area
