What is microneedling?

Microneedling is one of the most effective skin rejuvenation techniques for people with dull, aged, or tired skin. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment activates your body’s natural skin cell regeneration and collagen production capabilities. As such, our microneedling in Cape Coral will encourage your body to heal itself, ensuring naturalized results. The results are smoother, more even-textured, and more youthful skin.

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, works by restoring your skin’s collagen reserves. Collagen is a fibrous protein that gives structure and definition to your skin. It holds your skin upright against the force of gravity, making your skin look firm, youthful, and toned. As you grow older, your body’s collagen production capabilities are compromised, leading to sagging skin tissues that droop downwards.

Microneedling involves making thousands of ultra-small micro-channels on the skin’s surface using a specialized device. The micro-injuries are just enough to activate your body’s innate healing capabilities without damaging healthy skin. Your body responds to the micro-injuries by catalyzing skin cell regeneration and collagen production capabilities. Over time, the damaged skin tissues are replaced by younger and more youthful skin.

The results of your microneedling in Cape Coral improve gradually as your body produces new collagen fibers, making your skin look taut and firm.

SkinPen Precision for microneedling

Bio Spa 360 performs microneedling using the cutting-edge, FDA-approved SkinPen Precision device. This is the first FDA-cleared microneedling in the US, having undergone rigorous testing and clinical trials to establish and confirm its efficacy and safety. The SkinPen Precision device activates your body’s natural regenerative processes to increase blood flow and facilitate the formation of dermal tissues and blood vessels. Furthermore, this treatment is suitable for all skin types.

Who are good candidates for microneedling?

Microneedling is the ideal skin rejuvenation technique for patients with dull, tired, aged, or sagging skin. If you want to boost your skin’s collagen production capabilities and achieve brilliant, naturalized results, you should consider this treatment. However, if you’re a smoker or currently taking blood-thinning medications, you should discontinue them until a few weeks after microneedling. Please contact our cosmetic providers to determine if you’re a suitable candidate for microneedling.

What happens during your microneedling session?

Your microneedling in Cape Coral starts with a personalized consultation with our board-certified nurse practitioner, Gigi Fertil. She examines your skin, discusses your goals, and curates a personalized treatment plan just for you. Your facial skin is cleansed, and we apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort. After adjusting the SkinPen Precision device, the cosmetic provider moves it over your treatment areas. The sensation is similar to light sandpaper being rubbed on your face. The treatment concludes within 40 minutes.

  • Suitable for all skin types

What are the side effects of microneedling?

You may experience mild redness, swelling, bruising, and irritation on the treatment areas after the microneedling session. The redness should dissipate within a week. There are no harsh side effects, and you can resume your daily activities immediately. You can also start applying makeup after 24 hours. Your cosmetic provider will give aftercare instructions to ensure you have a smooth recovery.

What are the microneedling results like?

You’ll start seeing the treatment results as the redness and swelling dissipate within a week. Your skin tone and complexion will gradually improve over several weeks and months, depending on your skin quality. You may need 3 to 4 microneedling sessions spaced a month apart for optimal results — deeper scars may necessitate even more treatments. You can also repeat the treatment 2 to 3 times a year to maintain the results.
