Where On The Body Microneedling Can Be Performed?
Microneedling has become a revolutionary treatment for improving texture and rejuvenating the skin. “It’s the impressive results and minimal downtime that really draw patients to the procedure,” says Dr. Miriam Hanson, dermatologist and top cosmetic skin care specialist in Austin, Texas. If you’ve heard of the procedure, you may be wondering where on the body microneedling can be performed? In order to understand which parts of your body support it, you should understand the procedure to begin with.
Microneedling is a procedure in which a device uses tiny needles to penetrate the upper layers of skin with small wounds. “These micro-perforations in the skin prompt the body’s natural healing response,” explains Dr. Hanson. “New collagen and elastin fibers are formed and fill in the spaces.” As a result, the area will become fuller and more even, naturally.
As for potential locations, this procedure is most commonly used on the face. It can treat a multitude of issues that range from acne scars to wrinkles and even enlarged pore size. Microneedling can also be used off the face, to treat stretch marks and even loose or lax skin. “At Sanova Dermatology, we perform the procedure on almost any area of the body,” says Dr. Hanson. This can be especially helpful if you have scarring on other parts of your body, even your scalp. Hair loss? All of these areas can be treated with microneedling.
If dermal fillers or laser are not for you, this procedure is a great option to treat acne scars or wrinkles on the face. Because it uses your body’s natural response to the small, induced skin perforations, adverse reactions are exceedingly rare. Microneedling has very little downtime and patients tend to heal quickly after the initial procedure.
Microneedling offers many possibilities, because this procedure can be performed on any skin tone or texture. To learn more about how microneedling can help you in your problem areas, please contact us.
