At Nicole Norris MD Medical Spa in Peru, IL, we believe strongly that everyone should feel comfortable and confident in his or her own skin. That’s why we are proud to offer aesthetic services such as microneedling to our local communities. Today, we discuss several incredible microneedling benefits, including how many treatments you need to achieve your ideal aesthetic.
You Don’t Need Many Treatments
Whether you’re looking to tighten your skin, smooth wrinkles, reduce the appearance of scars or erase stretch marks, you don’t need too many treatments to achieve your ideal aesthetic. This is one of the microneedling benefits we hear about most frequently.
To smooth fine lines and wrinkles, you may need two treatment sessions spaced four to six weeks apart to achieve the smooth skin you desire. After that, you only need a maintenance treatment once a year. Collagen induction requires only three treatment sessions spaced four to six weeks apart. Scar and stretch mark reduction requires between three and six treatments.
You’re Probably a Good Candidate
Because microneedling does not damage the epidermis, it is safe for clients of all skin types, tones, and textures. This is in stark contrast to other anti-aging treatments that are only safe for clients with fair skin and dark hair.
During your initial consultation, we will review your medical history to ensure this is truly the treatment you have been waiting for. Be prepared to talk about any active wounds, cuts or abrasions, radiation skin treatment performed in the past 12 months, or use of Accutane you’ve experienced within the past three months.
You Won’t Experience Pain
Yet another incredible benefit of microneedling is that there is absolutely no pain or discomfort. The needles used are so fine that they cause no pain. If you are afraid of feeling the needles penetrate your skin, let us know during your initial consultation. We can quell your fears by applying a topical numbing cream to the treatment site so you don’t feel a thing.
You Can Have Treatment Virtually Anywhere
Microneedling is so popular for use on the face that many people are unaware this revolutionary treatment can address skin issues virtually anywhere. We commonly use microneedling to treat stretch marks on the lower back, lower abdomen, inner and outer thighs, upper arms and chest. We also treat burn, trauma, or surgical scars all over the body.
