Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure involving a specialized device with tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process, increasing collagen and elastin production. The treatment can improve skin texture, reduce scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, and enhance skin tone and firmness. Microneedling suits various body areas, including the face, neck, hands, and décolletage. It is a versatile treatment that can address many skin concerns.
The procedure is suitable for individuals looking to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, as well as those seeking a more youthful and rejuvenated complexion. Results from microneedling can typically be seen within a few weeks after the treatment, with optimal results becoming apparent after several sessions. The longevity of results varies from person to person, but with proper skincare maintenance, the benefits of microneedling can last several months to a year. If you want to revitalize your skin and enjoy the numerous benefits of microneedling, book a session at Aère Aesthetics to experience a personalized and professional treatment.
