Microneedling in Houston

Looking for Mirconeedling in Houston services? Throughout our lives, our skin is subjected to a variety of harsh environments and conditions. It’s no surprise that we have an increasing amount of lines, wrinkles, acne marks, and scars, all of which give everyone who sees them a sense of our age. Microneedling at the NUVO Cosmedispa in Houston is a fast, efficient way of eliminating wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and other cosmetic clues at the passage of time for anyone who wants their face to convey youthful vigor rather than years of wear.

Collagen and elastin are predominantly present in our connective tissues. Despite being separate proteins, they function together to keep our skin’s structure and rigidity. Collagen strengthens the skin, while elastin gives softness and elasticity; both are essential for a youthful appearance. As we age, our bodies create less of these proteins to replace molecules lost due to natural breakdown and UV damage. This results in sagging and wrinkled skin. However, the procedure of microneedling reactivates collagen and elastin production. At NUVO Cosmedispa, microneedling can be performed alone or in conjunction with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, which employs therapeutic components from a patient’s own blood to promote additional healing and rejuvenation.

What Happens During a Microneedling Procedure?

Patients considering a microneedling treatment will first meet with a highly trained Aesthetic Expert. During this meeting, you will decide whether the therapy is the best course of action. 

One session is enough for some patients. Others will go on to schedule multiple.

Some individuals may be satisfied with a single session of microneedling. But others will require a series of two to three treatments spaced six to eight weeks apart. Additional treatments may be required for patients with extensive scarring or deep wrinkles. A moisturizing gel is administered to the skin before the procedure to ease the process and prevent discomfort. The microneedling pen is then used by gliding over the skin. Some patients have said it is like the sensation of mild sandpaper moving across their skin. A conventional microneedling technique takes at least an hour to complete. When combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), the procedure can last up to two hours.


The Benefits of Microneedling in Houston

Your body is excellent at meeting its own demands. This is why it sends restorative collagen and elastin to places where a wound needs to be healed. Because it doesn’t take much to “repair” the channels generated by microneedling, your body is effectively deceived into providing considerably more action than is required. The plentiful remodeling chemicals go to work. They thicken the epidermis, activating the extracellular matrix and lowering inflammation—all of which contribute to a more youthful appearance. Here are some benefits of microneedling:

  • Exfoliation promotes healthy blood flow and skin cell turnover, stimulating collagen formation.
  • Fight Acne: Stimulates collagen and cell turnover, both of which are important in combating the inflammation that causes acne.
  • Reduces eye wrinkles by smoothing fine lines, reducing the appearance of crow’s feet, and tightening loose skin.
  • Reduces the appearance of dark patches and acne scars by stimulating collagen formation.
  • Increases product absorption. This allows you to receive the maximum benefits of any product.

What Should I Expect Following a Microneedling Procedure?

Patients in Houston should expect the region treated with microneedling to be red for a few days after their microneedling procedure. This usually lasts no more than 24 hours. But depending on the length of the treatment, some patients may feel the effects for two to four days. Patients can resume their daily routine soon after treatment because microneedling is minimally invasive.

Most patients describe an immediate glow once the redness fades. You should see significant changes appearing over the next few days and weeks. In fact, the effects of a microneedling procedure in Houston can remain for up to six months. 

After Microneedling Care

Recovery after microneedling is typically mild and only requires a few days of downtime. Minor side effects such as redness and swelling may occur, but these usually resolve within a few days.
