Collagen: The Secret To Eternal Youth

Collagen is a fibrous protein that binds skin tissues together, making your skin look firm and voluminous. As you grow older, your ability to produce collagen diminishes, leading to sunken cheeks, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Microneedling involves making micro-punctures on the skin’s surface to catalyze natural collagen production. The Med Spa of New Smyrna Beach offers personalized microneedling in New Smyrna Beach, with the option of PRP boosters, to reverse the signs of aging and restore youthful vitality.

How Microneedling Works

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation technique that involves making micro-punctures on the skin’s surface using a specialized device. The microneedles only penetrate the uppermost layers of your skin’s surface, thus triggering your body’s innate collagen production and cellular turnover processes. Over time, your body produces new skin cells to replace the damaged cells, and as new collagen fibers are prepared, your skin looks firmer, tauter, and more youthful. Microneedling reverses the effects of age on your skin.

Boost Microneedling Results With PRP

Microneedling is an incredibly powerful skin rejuvenation technique, but the results can be further heightened with PRP, short for platelet-rich plasma. PRP is a component of your blood with a high concentration of growth factors, the components responsible for natural cellular turnover, healing, regeneration, and multiplication. PRP treatment involves harvesting your blood, isolating the growth factor serum, and applying it to your skin after microneedling. The growth factors boost collagen production, leading to superior results.

Microneedling FAQs

What are the side effects of microneedling?

Microneedling treatment can lead to mild redness, swelling, itching, pain, and bruising. Most of the side effects of microneedling are extremely mild and temporary, and they usually resolve naturally over 72 hours.

What are my post-treatment aftercare instructions?

After microneedling in New Smyrna Beach, give your skin some time and care to recover. To ensure the best results, you should lightly hydrate your skin with a gentle cleanser or hyaluronic acid serum, moisturize your skin twice daily and wear sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher. Avoid applying makeup for the first 24 to 48 hours after the treatment, and don’t use exfoliants.

Is there any downtime after microneedling?

Microneedling doesn’t involve any downtime. You may resume your daily activities and work immediately after your treatment, but you must avoid direct sunlight for up to 72 hours because your skin will be highly sensitive. You should also avoid strenuous workouts, saunas, hot showers, and exfoliation until the side effects dissipate completely.

How many microneedling treatments will I need?

Microneedling can treat numerous skin concerns. The results are cumulative, so the number of treatments needed will depend on your specific conditions and desired results. On average, most people need 3 to 6 treatments spaced 4 to 8 weeks apart for optimal results. The results will gradually improve over several weeks after each session as your body produces new elastin and collagen.
