When you’re young, your body has a high concentration of collagen, which keeps your skin firm, taut, and smooth. But age strips your skin’s collagen reserves, leading to wrinkles. Abbott Aesthetics offers microneedling to stimulate collagen production and help you achieve smooth, even-textured, and youthful skin.

Collagen: Keep Your Skin Taut

Collagen is a key component of the skin, providing it with strength and elasticity. Collagen is a fibrous protein that binds skin tissues together and prevents sagging. As you age, your body’s production of collagen gradually decreases, and this can lead to wrinkles, sagging skin, and other unwanted signs of aging. Microneedling reverses the age-related loss of collagen by activating your body’s healing processes, including cell regeneration and collagen production.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is an innovative skin treatment that uses tiny needles to puncture the skin, creating “micro-injuries” that stimulate the production of collagen, the fibrous proteins responsible for skin tightness. In response to the tiny punctures, skin cells start to regenerate and repair themselves, creating smoother, firmer, and more vibrant skin. This process reduces wrinkles, fine lines, skin laxity, hyperpigmentation, scars, stretch marks, and loose skin. The results are natural, based on your body’s innate healing response.

SkinPen: Improved Precision, Optimal Results

Abbott Aesthetics performs microneedling using the cutting-edge, FDA-approved SkinPen, which is proven to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, resulting in improved texture and tone. SkinPen is adjustable, offering a custom level of depth that makes it safe and effective for various skin types and tones. Furthermore, its patented vertical delivery system offers an even and sterile deposition of topical solutions for optimal precision.

Microneedling With Growth Factors

Growth factors are proteins that stimulate cellular activity to repair skin tissue. While microneedling alone is highly effective in reducing signs of aging, adding growth factors can further boost the results, leading to superior cellular regeneration, collagen production, and tissue healing.

The Microneedling Treatment

Your microneedling treatment starts with a consultation. Our medical providers carefully examine your skin, discuss your goals and concerns, review your medical history, and discuss your treatment options. They describe what you can expect from microneedling and the potential benefits of adding growth factors to your session. After a thorough evaluation, our medical providers curate a personalized treatment plan.

The medical provider cleanses your facial skin and applies a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort. The SkinPen device is adjusted according to your skin type and conditions, following which it’s used to punch micro-punctures on your skin’s surface. After covering all treatment areas, the growth factors are applied to your skin to promote collagen production.

The Microneedling Recovery

After the treatment, you may notice some redness, minor swelling, and sensitivity, which will diminish within the first 24 to 72 hours. You must keep the skin clean and avoid sun exposure to aid recovery. Aftercare also includes minimizing skin irritation, applying moisturizers, and avoiding scrubbing or picking at the treated area. You can resume your daily activities immediately, but avoid workouts and direct sunlight until the side effects dissipate completely.

Microneedling FAQs

Should I combine my microneedling with growth factors?

Both microneedling and growth factors stimulate collagen production, so combining them can amplify their effects. Growth factors can give microneedling an added boost, providing faster and more pronounced results. However, your medical provider will help you determine if you need to combine the two treatments.

When will I see the microneedling results?

You will start seeing improvements, such as smoother and more even skin tone, within a few days of your first microneedling session. These improvements will become increasingly visible over several weeks, with full results typically visible after about 6 weeks.

How long do the microneedling results last?

The results of microneedling can last 6 to 12 months, depending on your skin type and the severity of your issues. With a few maintenance treatments, you can extend the results even longer.

How many microneedling sessions do I need?

On average, individuals see optimal results when they receive a series of 3 to 6 sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. To get the most out of microneedling, you may need more than one session to stimulate collagen production, so talk to your medical provider about your goals.
