Wrinkles, droopy eyelids, and fine lines are inevitable signs of aging that kick in gradually. These imperfections may significantly affect your physical appearance and also affect your mood. The aestheticians at Pure MD offer micro-needling in Dayton to restore your youthful appearance and self-confidence.

What is facial rejuvenation?

Facial rejuvenation refers to a cosmetic treatment that addresses your facial imperfections, restoring your radiant, youthful appearance. As you age, you may start developing wrinkles, fine lines, and droopy eyelids start kicking in, making you appear older than you are. Facial rejuvenation allows you to defy the aging process by reducing the effects of old age and enabling you to enjoy your youth longer. You can also consider facial rejuvenation if you have uneven skin tone, acne scars, or skin laxity. In addition to improving your facial appearance, some facial rejuvenation procedures offer medical advantages. For instance, an eyebrow lift addresses droopy eyelids, enhancing your vision.

Who is eligible for facial rejuvenation?

Anyone desiring to eliminate their facial imperfections or reduce the visibility of signs of aging is eligible for facial rejuvenation. During your appointment, your doctor conducts a thorough physical evaluation to ensure that you are psychologically, mentally, and physically healthy for the procedure. They also evaluate your immune system to ensure that it is in good shape to prevent complications associated with the procedure. You may not be eligible for facial rejuvenation if you have underlying medical conditions. It would be best to discuss your goals and expectations with your plastic surgeon to help you achieve your desired results.

What is micro-needling?

Microneedling refers to a cosmetic procedure that stimulations collagen and elastin production to heal your skin and restore its radiance. The procedure involves pricking your skin with tiny needles to make minor wounds. These wounds trigger your body to produce collagen, reducing the visibility of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles while elevating your skin texture. Micro-needling also treats stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, hair loss, sun damage, and spots, giving you youthful-looking skin.

What happens during a micro-needling procedure?

The team recommends approaching certified doctors for micro-needling to prevent complications that may affect your overall health. A micro-needling procedure usually lasts for about 10-20 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. You may need to schedule several treatment sessions to achieve the desired results. The team applies numbing cream on the treatment site to prevent you from feeling pain during the procedure. They then glide a pen-shaped tool with needles across your face to make tiny wounds on your skin. These wounds trigger your body’s natural healing powers by stimulating elastin and collagen production to heal those wounds. Cell regeneration reduces the visibility of wrinkles and evens out your skin tone, giving you smooth and radiant skin. You may experience some pain or notice mild redness around the treatment area, but it dissipates after a few days. Depending on how deep the needles prick your skin, it may take days or weeks to heal fully.
