Microneedling

Microneedling involves creating micro-punctures in the skin. As a result, the body begins to heal and produces collagen and elastin. Scars, wrinkles, and large pores disappear, improving the appearance and texture of the skin. Microneedling can be applied to various body parts, including the face, neck, and chest, making it a versatile treatment.

Microneedling in West Des Moines, IA, is ideal for individuals with aging skin, scars, or sun damage. Treatment benefits all skin types but is especially effective for those seeking a firmer complexion. Results can typically begin to appear after the first few sessions, with improvements continuing as the skin heals. The effects of microneedling can last several months, and it may be necessary to continue treatments to maintain optimal results.

Benefits of Microneedling

FAQ's

Individuals concerned about wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and overall skin texture are good candidates for microneedling. Skin types of all shades can benefit from it.

Initial results can often be seen within a few days after the first session, with more significant improvements appearing after multiple treatments as collagen production increases.

The results are long-lasting, especially with a series of treatments. Many see improvements for up to six months or longer.

Microneedling has minimal downtime. You may experience slight redness and sensitivity right after the treatment, but this usually subsides within a few days.

Avoid sun exposure, tanning, and skin irritants (like retinoids or acids) for a week before treatment. After treatment, moisturize the skin and avoid direct sun exposure for a few days.

During microneedling, a professional uses a device containing tiny needles to puncture the skin. The procedure is generally well-tolerated, but numbing cream can be applied prior to it to reduce discomfort. The session usually lasts about 30 minutes, depending on the treatment area.
