Activate Collagen Production

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. This stimulates collagen production, which improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. Microneedling reverses the effects of age on your skin and revitalizes your complexion from within. At Gavino Dermatology, we use the latest technology to ensure the procedure is safe and effective. With microneedling, you can achieve smooth, youthful-looking skin with minimal downtime and side effects.

How Microneedling Works

Collagen is a fibrous protein essential for the health and appearance of your skin. It’s responsible for maintaining your skin’s elasticity and firmness by binding skin tissues together and holding them upright against gravity. As we age, collagen production decreases, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. Microneedling is a collagen induction therapy that stimulates the production of collagen, which improves the overall appearance of the skin.

Microneedling in Leander works by creating a controlled injury to the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing response. As the skin heals, new collagen and elastin are produced, resulting in a smoother, tighter, and more youthful complexion. Over time, your body produces new collagen, which reverses the effects of age and sun damage on your skin. Microneedling also increases cellular turnover, so the damaged skin cells are replaced by new, healthy, youthful skin.

Benefits of Microneedling:

  • Improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars
  • Stimulates collagen production, leading to firmer and more youthful-looking skin

Recovery & Side Effects

Recovery from microneedling is easy, with most people returning to normal activities immediately or the next day. Your skin may be slightly red and swollen after the procedure, but this typically subsides within a few hours. You may also experience mild peeling or flaking in the days following the procedure. Please avoid sun exposure and use good sunscreen and moisturizer as directed by our practitioner.

The Microneedling Results

Microneedling in Leander results can vary depending on the individual and the condition of their skin. However, most people notice an improvement in the texture and tone of their skin after one session. For best results, a series of 3-6 treatments is recommended. Your skin will look fuller and firmer a few weeks after each session. The results last for several months, but to maintain the results, you need touch-up treatments every 6-12 months.

Microneedling + PRP

At Gavino Dermatology, we take our microneedling treatments to the next level by combining them with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP is a concentrated form of your blood plasma rich in growth factors and other healing properties. By applying PRP to the skin after microneedling, we enhance the results and accelerate the healing process. The growth factors in the PRP serum stimulate cellular regeneration and collagen production, leading to improved skin texture, reduced fine lines, and a more youthful appearance.

Your Experience

During a microneedling session at Gavino Dermatology, your skin will be cleansed, and a numbing cream will be applied to minimize discomfort. The practitioner will use a microneedling device with fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. Microneedling in Leander takes about 30-45 minutes, depending on the treatment area. You will be given post-treatment instructions and a skincare routine to follow to optimize your results.
