Microneedling at Genesis Lifestyle Medicine in Derby, KS, effectively treats acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation. This minimally invasive procedure rejuvenates the skin, promoting collagen production for a smoother, healthier complexion.

Boost collagen and defy aging

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses tiny, sterile needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin's surface. These micro-injuries stimulate the body's natural healing process, promoting collagen and elastin production. This leads to improved skin texture, reduced appearance of scars, wrinkles, and fine lines, and enhanced overall skin tone. Microneedling can be performed on various parts of the body, with the most common areas being the face, neck, and décolletage, resulting in a rejuvenated and youthful appearance.

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, works by creating controlled micro-injuries on the skin using tiny, sterile needles. These micro-injuries stimulate the body's natural wound-healing processes, triggering the production of new collagen and elastin, essential proteins that provide structural support and elasticity to the skin. The controlled nature of the injuries ensures that the skin's integrity remains intact while promoting cellular regeneration and rejuvenation. This process not only helps in reducing the appearance of scars and wrinkles but also improves skin texture and tone.

Microneedling treatment details

Treatment

During your microneedling treatment at Genesis Lifestyle Medicine, a trained specialist will cleanse your skin and apply a topical numbing cream to ensure comfort. Using a handheld device with fine, sterile needles, they will create controlled micro-injuries in the treatment area. You might feel a slight prickling sensation, but it should be minimal. The procedure typically takes 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. Afterward, a soothing serum is applied to enhance healing and maximize results.

Recovery

After your microneedling session, you may experience mild redness, swelling, and slight discomfort, similar to a mild sunburn. These side effects typically subside within 24 to 48 hours. It's important to keep your skin hydrated and protected from the sun during this time. You might notice some minor peeling as your skin begins to heal and regenerate. Most patients can return to their regular activities immediately, with minimal downtime. Your skin will gradually improve over the following weeks, revealing a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Results

You can expect to see initial improvements in your skin's texture and tone within a few days after your microneedling treatment. Optimal results typically appear after several weeks as collagen production continues. Most patients require 3 to 6 sessions, spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart, to achieve the best outcomes. The effects of microneedling can last for several months, and maintenance treatments every 6 to 12 months can help sustain the results. Your skin will look smoother, firmer, and more youthful with each session.
