Will Microneedling Rejuvenate Your Aging Skin?
At Xage Medical Spa, Dr. Stuart B. Porter uses microneedling with either SkinPen® or Morpheus8™ technology on his patients in Provo, UT. Microneedling uses multiple fine needles to make micro-injuries in the skin. This treatment helps improve and regenerate collagen production and elastin in your skin. These are nutrients, vitamin serums, or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that can significantly improve the health and appearance of your complexion. Easily combined with other treatments, it can help minimize pores, stretch marks, scars, and other signs of aging on the skin. During a consultation, you can learn more about the benefits of microneedling and how we can personalize your treatment to meet your skin needs.
Should I get microneedling?
While we can perform microneedling on a variety of patients, we usually recommend microneedling as an anti-aging treatment for patients over 40. Ideal candidates for this treatment are patients noticing signs of aging, including age spots, discoloration, fine lines, smile lines, or wrinkles. Microneedling is a great choice for those who want to:
Firm their skin
Treat signs of aging, including fine lines, laugh lines, smile lines, wrinkles, Crow’s feet, and large pores
Minimize the appearance of age spots
Improve sagging skin
Rejuvenate the skin
It’s important to understand that because collagen and elastin production takes time, you won’t see results instantly.
About our microneedling technique
Your microneedling treatment is completed in a private treatment room in just 30 – 60 minutes with a numbing cream if you desire. Our patients report mild to no discomfort. First, your skin is cleaned before we use the SkinPen. We will make passes over your skin with this device. After your microneedling treatment is done, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or serum with a vitamin infusion is applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients. Lastly, a moisturizer is massaged into the skin with sunscreen. If we use the Morpheus8 technology, it will emit radiofrequency energy to create smooth and consistent results.
For patients who choose to include PRP treatment with their microneedling, we will first take a sample of your blood. Next, the blood is separated so we can use the platelets, growth factors, and cells during your treatment. After your microneedling treatment is complete, we will place the PRP serum on your skin to the minor injuries made from the microneedling process.
What to expect after microneedling
After your microneedling treatment, you may have mild swelling and redness for a day. It can take one to two months as your collagen and elastin levels increase until you begin seeing significant improvements in how your treated skin looks. Maintenance treatments should be scheduled every 4 – 6 weeks for long-lasting results.
