Microneedling

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is an aesthetic treatment that stimulates your skin’s own natural healing process to improve the appearance and texture of your body’s largest organ system.

To perform microneedling, the experienced team at Bella-Sana Med Spa use a tool equipped with thin tiny needles that creates microscopic punctures to the surface of your skin. This slight injuring triggers your skin’s healing elements and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, the proteins found in your skin that provide strength, support, and flexibility.  

 

What skin issues can microneedling treat?

The experts at Bella-Sana Med Spa use microneedling to improve many common skin concerns. You may consider microneedling if you have:

  • Acne scars or stretch marks
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Sun damaged skin

Microneedling can also reduce the size of large pores and smooth out rough patches or textured skin.

Microneedling is safe and effective on all skin types. The technique can be used to treat issues on a variety of body areas, including the face, decolletage, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.

 

What can I expect during microneedling treatment?

Microneedling is a quick, effective treatment that naturally enhances the appearance of your skin. While the team at Bella-Sana Med Spa do their best to minimize any discomfort during treatment, you may feel mild pain during your microneedling treatment as the tiny needles penetrate the surface of your skin. Be sure to let your specialist know if you’re sensitive to pain so your treatment can be adjusted.

Treatment time varies depending on the area being worked on and your aesthetic goals. Downtime isn’t required following your microneedling, but the treatment may leave your skin red for a short period of time.

You should notice an improvement in the look of your skin almost immediately following treatment, with continued benefits seen over the next few months as your skin rejuvenates itself.

 

How many treatments of microneedling do I need?

Your specialist at Bella-Sana Med Spa determines how many microneedling sessions you need based on the treatment area and your aesthetic goals. For optimal results, the team suggests combining microneedling with laser therapy.

Microneedling is an innovative treatment that allows your skin to heal itself and restore your natural beauty. To schedule your session, call Bella-Sana Med Spa today or request an appointment online.
