Looking for younger skin without injections? Microneedling boosts collagen and elastin production, the substance that promotes healthy, youthful-looking skin. It's also known as collagen induction therapy. At Akin Aesthetics & Wellness in Riverton, Utah we offer microneedling to everyone in the Riverton, South Jordan, Lehi, Draper, Sandy, Salt Lake, and West Valley area. Here are some commonly asked questions about microneedling.
How Does Microneedling Work?
The treatment works by using a microneedling pen to create many tiny controlled wounds in the skin. The controlled wounds encourage the production of collagen in the skin to soften signs of aging and other issues.
What are the Benefits?
Microneedling improves skin texture by reducing the appearance of signs of aging and sun damage. It helps topical treatments penetrate deeper into the skin by shrinking the pores, which increases their ability to retain moisture.
Microneedling works on all skin types, and it even works on sensitive areas, such as the region around the eyes, which can’t tolerate certain other treatments. There is minimal recovery time and only takes about an hour.
How Do I Care for My Skin After the Treatment?
We will send you post care instructions after the treatment for the best results. The most important aftercare instruction is to apply a good sunscreen in the days post-treatment because the skin will be sensitive. Excessive sun can also cause unnecessary issues that could have otherwise been avoided, so it’s important to use sun protection. Other products such as Alastin Nectar will also enhance your treatment results.
When Will I See Results?
The time it takes to see results varies, but most clients see results in just weeks. However, it is possible to notice plumper skin in less time. We recommend 3-4 sessions to see best results. However, it all depends on the unique case, and that’s one of the reasons why a consultation is so important.
