Newton Medical Aesthetics provides microneedling in Newton, MA. Microneedling is an effective skin rejuvenation technique that activates the body’s natural healing mechanisms to treat acne scars, fine lines, and other concerns. The treatment doesn’t involve medications or other foreign components. Instead, the cosmetic doctor uses a specialized device to make micro-channels on the skin’s surface. The process is painless, comfortable, and causes no harsh side effects or complications. The micro-injuries activate your body’s innate healing processes, thereby encouraging collagen production and skin cell regeneration. This leads to smoother, firmer, and more even-textured skin.
How Does Microneedling Work?
To understand how microneedling works, you must understand the skin and collagen, its primary structural framework. Collagen is a fibrous protein that makes your skin look smooth, firm, and voluminous. It supports your skin and holds it upright against the force of gravity. As you grow older, your body’s ability to produce and maintain collagen falls, leading to sagging skin with fine lines, wrinkles, and other problems.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, encourages your body to produce new collagen fibers. The cosmetic doctor uses micro-needles to damage the uppermost layers of the skin’s surface, activating your body’s innate healing processes, such as collagen production and skin cell turnover. Microneedling in Newton can restore your skin’s collagen reserves, thereby making your skin look firm, taut, and smooth. Meanwhile, the damaged, scarred, and pigmented skin cells are replaced by new, healthier skin.
Your Microneedling Consultation & Treatment
Your microneedling consultation starts with a thorough discussion of your skin concerns and overall goals. Our cosmetic doctors carefully examine your skin, discuss your goals, and review your medical history. This allows them to curate the ideal treatment plan and determine if you’re a viable candidate for microneedling. Drs. A&A treat all patients like family, and, as such, they clearly say “no” for treatments they deem unnecessary or unsuitable.
During your Newton microneedling session, the medical staff will cleanse your facial skin and apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort. Using a specialized handheld device, the cosmetic doctor will “stamp” your skin with ultrafine microneedles. This will create micro-channels on the skin’s surface, thereby activating your skin’s innate collagen production capabilities. After the treatment, a soothing gel will be applied to reduce post-treatment discomfort.
Post-Treatment Recovery & Aftercare
Microneedling is a safe procedure with no downtime or extended recovery period. However, your skin will look flushed and slightly sunburnt for a few days. In some cases, the uppermost layers of your skin will start peeling in 3 to 5 days, revealing smoother, softer skin underneath. Please don’t pick at the peeling skin — allow it to fall away naturally. You should also apply moisturizers to minimize itching.
After your microneedling treatment, you should hydrate your skin with hyaluronic acid. Apply the recommended skincare products whenever your skin feels dry or itchy. You should avoid exfoliation and alcohol-based solutions for a few days, and you should avoid strenuous workouts and saunas for 24 hours. Please avoid exposure to direct sunlight when possible, and wear sunscreen whenever you go outside.
