Anderson Aesthetics and Hair Restoration offers several options for people looking to have noninvasive treatments that produce results. One such treatment is Microneedling. It is one of the more innovative services that Ken Anderson, M.D., and staff provide.
Collagen starts to decrease in the skin beginning in your 20s, and by 40, it has drastically reduced. One of the ways estheticians are fighting back against this collagen loss is with microneedling. Hence, why microneedling is a popular buzz word in the skin care industry right now—everyone is gravitating toward it. The treatment, which involves injecting tiny needles all over the face and neck, triggers the body to heal itself. The process of healing creates more collagen, which plumps the skin and makes the face look younger.
I had this procedure done on my entire face and neck and I was surprised at how painless it was. Anne Cesae, L.M.E., performed the treatment, and Courtney Pantelis provided me with great insight on the process and benefits of the procedure. It started with applying numbing cream on my face and neck to limit my discomfort. Once applied, you need to wait about 15 to 20 minutes for it to take effect. Even with the numbing cream, you do still feel a few small stings but not uncomfortable at all. The needling took about 20 to 30 minutes.
My face was slightly red afterward and I was instructed to stay out of the sun, but overall, the downtime was minimal. Courtney and Anne gave me some great serums to put on later that night and the next day. They were well-educated about the aftercare process since they have both had the procedure done on themselves. Within the next few days, I saw a noticeable difference in the texture of my skin. It felt smoother, more supple, and my wrinkles were slightly diminished. I would definitely recommend having the procedure done in a series to get maximum benefits.
