So, most people can benefit from this remarkable treatment. Dr. Amarpaul Sidhu and his team from Foothill Cosmetic Surgery Center want you to look and feel your best. One way they can do that is by microneedling in Glendora, CA. Read on to learn a bit more about this treatment and if it might be right for you.
What Does Microneedling Consist Of?
Microneedling is a safe and painless treatment aimed at making your skin smoother and more youthful-looking. It involves using a handheld pen-like device with tiny needles on it to create micro-sized punctures in the skin. This may seem counterintuitive at first, but it's a good thing! The tiny puncture wounds created by the microneedles stimulate the body's natural healing process. What results is the growth of new collagen and elastin, ending in smoother, more elastic and fuller-looking skin. Some other benefits of microneedling in Glendora, CA are:
- Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
- Reduced appearance of scarring
- Reduces damage and discoloration from the sun
- Increases skin absorption of skincare products
- Shrinks pores
- Reduces rosacea
Who Makes a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
Almost anyone would be considered a candidate for this procedure. The ideal candidate would be seeking treatment for blemishes on the surface of the skin. These include scarring from acne, wrinkles, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, or those seeking an overall anti-aging treatment.
Scarring is not limited to acne. Other things may cause scars such as a previous illness or injury. Microneedling is a great option for keloid or hypertrophic scarring.
Is There Anything To Consider Before Choosing To Have This Treatment?
With any procedure, you should be in generally good overall health. General anaesthesia is not used for this procedure, nor will you need to spend a night in the hospital. However, it is still important to report a thorough health history to your provider to ensure that your body will best respond to this treatment.
If you are looking for a minimally-invasive, time-effective treatment that does not require a long recovery period, microneedling may be right for you. The procedure generally takes 30-60 minutes on an outpatient basis.
If you are pregnant or nursing, or currently fighting an active acne infection, it is advised not to undergo this procedure.
