 Microneedling Treatment For You

Jul 30

Microneedling is exactly what it sounds like: a hand-held device punctures the skin with very fine, short needles. This encourages the formation of collagen and skin tissue, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more toned skin. These punctures are relatively superficial, but the results are astonishing, with many people reporting improved complexion and radiance in just a few weeks.


The microneedling therapy is minimally invasive, painless, and requires no downtime.


First, your certified aesthetician will discuss your skin goals with you and devise a plan of action to assist you in achieving the look you desire. The area will then be numbed using a topical numbing medication, making the operation extremely painless. The treatment will then begin! The entire procedure takes around an hour.


After the treatment is complete, you may notice some redness and swelling. This is normal and should dissipate within a few hours. You will be able to apply makeup and resume your normal activities immediately following the procedure.


Over the next few days, you will notice your skin begin to change as new collagen is produced. These changes will continue for the next few months, with optimal results usually seen around the three-month mark. If you are looking for a way to achieve smoother, firmer, and more toned skin, microneedling may be the perfect treatment for you!


The Benefits of Microneedling for Your Skin

It may be tough for you to accept that doing injury to your skin on purpose can improve skin tone, reduce acne scars, and reverse the signs of aging. These undesirable but persistent reminders of a more challenging moment in your life may be difficult for you to accept. But that is precisely how microneedling functions.


River District Aesthetics provides a variety of aesthetic treatments to improve the appearance and health of your skin. We harness your body's natural healing powers to treat many common skin disorders with microneedling, and we'd like to share some of the benefits of this minimally invasive beauty procedure with you.

Increases collagen production

Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy. Collagen is a structural protein that helps to keep your skin strong and flexible. As you become older, the production of this youth-promoting protein declines, which leads to the formation of lines and wrinkles.


The tool we use for microneedling causes microtears in the skin's superficial layer. These tiny rips activate your skin's self-healing mechanism, which includes an increase in collagen production.

Removes wrinkles and lines

Through the stimulation of collagen formation, microneedling increases firmness and smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles to make them less noticeable.


Microneedling is also quick, usually taking an hour or less. And, to ensure your comfort, we administer a numbing agent to your skin before beginning therapy.


Even though you could feel a little red after your session, you don't need to take any time off from work or other obligations. However, to protect your skin as it recovers and regenerates, we strongly advise that you use sunscreen frequently.

Skin tone is improved

The sun is not your skin's friend. In addition to increasing collagen breakdown, too much sun can produce hyperpigmentation on your face and hands, sometimes known as sun spots. Microneedling helps to break up hyperpigmented skin while also boosting cell turnover for a more balanced complexion.

Scar treatment

Although your acne is gone, the scars that remain can have a long-term impact on your self-esteem and confidence. However, microneedling may be the answer you've been looking for. Microneedling stimulates your skin's repair process, allowing it to fill in recessed acne scars and improve the texture and appearance of your skin.


Microneedling is an excellent treatment for scars caused by trauma and surgery, in addition to acne scars. We can also utilize the gadget to help remove stretch marks.
