If your imperfections make it difficult to look in the mirror but you don’t want to undergo surgery and painful recovery, you can turn to Dr. Scott Paviol. He offers microneedling treatment sessions, which eliminate your skin imperfections and restore your youthful glow.
Microneedling is a nonsurgical aesthetic procedure that triggers collagen ad elastin production to restore your youthful; glow. The method involves creating tiny puncture holes in your skin to activate your body’s natural healing powers. The Paviol Dermatology specialists utilize this cutting-edge technology to stimulate cell regeneration and minimize the appearance of skin imperfections like wrinkles and acne scars. Your aesthetic provider may recommend performing microneedling with PRP therapy to quicken the healing process and provide maximum results. Some benefits you can obtain from microneedling include tighter skin, healthier-looking skin, minimized hyperpigmentation, fewer wrinkles, fine lines, smoother, glowing skin, and improved acne scars. Microneedling is a quick, painless aesthetic method that guarantees a dramatic improvement in your appearance without downtime.
Microneedling is unlike any other facial since you can take it whenever you want. Dr. Paviol may need a thorough physical exam to ensure you’re eligible for the procedure. He may also recommend avoiding specific products and medicines that interfere with the results or cause complications. If you have acne-prone skin, your provider may recommend avoiding Accutane and topical retinoids several months before your microneedling session. You may also need to abstain from blood-thinning medications like ibuprofen three days before your treatment.
During your microneedling appointment at Paviol Dermatology, the team may guide you to a comfortable room where you lie in a reclining chair. Your physician then numbs the target area to ensure you don’t experience any pain. They then draw a sample of your blood to create platelet-rich plasma. Your provider then glides a handheld device to create microscopic wounds in your skin to promote collagen production. PRP therapy maximizes your results, leaving you looking several years younger than you are.
After your treatment, the team may recommend refraining from hot environments and strenuous activities for several days. You may also develop tenderness, swelling, and bruising due to the puncture holes. Your doctor may advise against anti-inflammatory medication as it may interfere with the inflammatory process. Over time you may start noticing smoother, glowing, and tighter skin. You may need several treatment sessions to maintain your revitalized look.
Although microneedling is famous for its dramatic results, several myths may discourage you from considering it. One such myth is that the technique is painful. Although it has an unfortunate name, you should not let it prevent you. Your doctor uses a numbing agent during the procedure to ensure you don’t experience any pain. Other people believe that the procedure leaves holes in the skin. Although microneedling involves puncturing your skin, the wounds are microscopic and seal within a few hours.
