Not all of our customers are familiar with microneedling in Rancho Santa Fe. Those who aren’t satisfied with the way their skin looks because of scars, pigmentation, or wrinkles are candidates to receive microneedling at our medical spa in Fairbanks.
Fairbanks Med Spa in Rancho Santa Fe, California, is a place that aims to provide you with all your pharmaceutical and medical spa needs. Microneedling using FDA approved devices is a great way to improve the appearance and health of skin, which is why we decided to add it to our services.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling, as the name suggests, uses a small needle to create tiny injuries to the skin. These injuries stimulate the formation of new collagen and skin, thereby stimulating the skin’s healing process. It’s not just for the face; we can use microneedling on any part of the body.
It can be done to treat acne, acne scars, wrinkles, scars caused by trauma, pigmentation, stretch marks, and more. A single procedure takes about 15 to 30 minutes. The number of treatments required varies from one person to the other. Some people might only need one treatment, but most need about three treatments that are 1 to 2 months apart.
Side Effects and Recovery
There are almost no side effects to microneedling. You’ll notice the affected area turn red, and it’ll take a couple of days for that redness to disappear. Results will start to be noticeable within days or weeks. Most people continue to see improvement for up to 6 months.
We apply a numbing cream to the affected area before we begin treatment to reduce discomfort. A hydrating gel is used to increase comfort too. After the procedure is over, we’ll give you instructions on what to do and the creams you should use to help you achieve better results and minimize irritation.
Many people think microneedling is only for the face. The truth is that it can be used to treat the face, neck, arms, legs, and trunk. To schedule an appointment, give us a call at Fairbanks Med Spa.
