Improve skin laxity with microneedling

Facial rejuvenation services run the gamut and may include a wide range of treatments, including chemical peels and dermabrasion. However, some patients who visit Dr. Scott Gillin of RewindMD in Solana Beach, California, may seek a more natural way to rejuvenate the skin and address concerns such as increased skin laxity. If you seek a reliable facial rejuvenation treatment that includes sagging skin treatment without plastic surgery, you may want to ask our team about microneedling.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a treatment designed to improve skin laxity and appearance by stimulating its natural healing properties. This particular treatment is best for treating issues such as:

  • Skin laxity
  • Age spots and sunspots
  • Acne scarring
  • Minor surgical or trauma scars
  • Freckles
  • Burns
  • Stretch marks

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling may sound like a painful process, but it is designed to help stimulate the skin’s healing response. It does this by using hundreds of tiny needles which puncture the skin. This boosts the skin’s development of collagen and elastin, which in turn firms the skin and tightens areas of concern. It can also treat pigmentation and scarring on otherwise healthy skin. PRP or exosomes can be added to microneedling to improve results.

What can I expect after my upcoming microneedling treatment?

One of the most common side effects after microneedling is redness, which often resolves independently in a day or two as the skin recovers. Other side effects may include stinging, tingling, and dryness. Patients can expect to see the most noticeable results after approximately four months of regular treatments as the skin continues to boost collagen and elastin production with each procedure.
