When the skin’s texture and tone becomes dull and discolored, patients need to consider the benefits of certain cosmetic services at Cilento Facial Plastics that can rejuvenate and refresh one’s appearance. Patients who are dealing with problems such as acne scars, aging skin, and pigmentation will want to ask their provider about the advantages of a treatment known as microneedling.
What is microneedling?
Dr. Ben Cilento describes microneedling as a procedure that is best used to enhance the skin’s texture and tone. Using a device that has hundreds of very small needles, the skin is punctured to simulate a wound on the skin and stimulate the skin’s production of collagen. In doing so, the appearance of scars and wrinkles are greatly reduced. At the same time, the procedure can improve the appearance of the skin overall and bring back a healthy glow.
Does microneedling hurt?
The idea of having hundreds of small needles puncturing the skin sounds like a painful procedure. However, discomfort is minimal as our team will apply a topical numbing solution to the skin to ensure patients have a positive experience.
How many treatments do I need?
The number of treatments necessary for a patient depends on the results they desire. Patients should always have realistic expectations regarding what this and other services can achieve. In most cases, if patients are interested in the best results, a series of approximately six treatments spaced four weeks apart may be recommended by Dr. Ben Cilento. However, most patients will see results after at least two treatments. The results are gradual and take time, but can make a dramatic difference in the skin’s appearance!
