Microneedling is a procedure to increase collagen within your skin. Collagen is a type of protein that helps hold your skin’s structure and keep it firm, but the loss of collagen with age contributes to features like wrinkles, sagging, and crepey skin. Microneedling also stimulates an overall healing response which leads to higher cell turnover and a smooth, clear surface.
TYHHT® Studios PLLC offers microneedling to improve the skin on your face and other areas you decide to target. Dr. Wills helps you choose between the two available options for microneedling at TYHHT® Studios PLLC:
Exceed by Candela® repairs your skin using a high-precision pen-like handpiece. The needles on the handpiece penetrate your skin at even intervals for consistent results.
Secret RF microneedling enhances your results by adding radiofrequency to warm your skin during treatment. That accelerates and exacerbates the healing process to offer even more improvements than basic microneedling without RF.
After any microneedling treatment at TYHHT® Studios PLLC, you get AnteAGE® MD growth factors and cytokines to improve skin healing, along with an aftercare kit.
It takes some time for your skin to heal and for collagen to grow after microneedling at TYHHT® Studios PLLC, but you can expect to enjoy the full effect around four to six weeks after treatment. Microneedling minimizes:
During your initial consultation at TYHHT® Studios PLLC, Dr. Wills asks about your skin improvement goals and examines the skin you want to treat. She tells you whether or not microneedling is the most suitable option and can make other recommendations when it’s not.
Microneedling leaves your skin a little more sensitive than usual, but the treatment doesn’t involve any downtime. However, you should be extra cautious about exposing your skin to the sun. Avoid sunlight to the best of your ability for at least a few days, and apply sunscreen diligently to avoid ultraviolet (UV) light damage.
You must also take some time away from swimming and harsh skin products until your skin has fully healed and there is no more irritation.
