Microneedling is one of the fastest and most effective skin rejuvenation techniques. It’s truly unique because it doesn’t rely on external components, chemicals, or lasers. Instead, it relies on your body’s natural healing response and collagen fibers to reverse the signs of aging, heal scars, and improve your overall complexion. Even though the name “microneedling” can be scary (no one likes needles), it’s actually fairly painless and comfortable.

Synergy MedAesthetics in Washington is a luxurious medical spa where we use the latest technologies to provide highly-calibrated microneedling in Yakima. You may schedule a consultation with our skincare providers to discuss your Yakima microneedling options.

How does microneedling work?

The concept behind microneedling is fairly simple. The procedure involves creating numerous micro-channels on the skin’s surface to activate the body’s natural healing response. When you scrape your knees, your body increases the skin cell turnover and collagen production capabilities to heal the wound.

Microneedling encourages your body to activate those healing processes without significantly damaging your skin. The microneedling device creates a micro-puncture on the skin’s uppermost layers, barely breaking through the skin, but it’s enough to activate collagen production and skin cell turnover.

Your body produces new skin cells to replace the old, dull, and damaged skin cells, giving you smoother, younger, and fresher skin. Meanwhile, your body also speeds up the production of collagen fibers. Collagen is the skin’s primary structural framework, responsible for its youthful appearance and firmness.

Microneedling is also known as “collagen induction therapy” because it restores your skin’s depleting collagen reserves. Over time, your skin appears firmer, smoother, and tighter, reversing some of the most prominent signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and skin laxity.

Am I a suitable candidate for microneedling?

You’re a suitable candidate for microneedling in Yakima if your skin is losing its youthful firmness, vibrance, and vitality. If you’re self-conscious about the appearance of your skin because of the acne scars, pigmentation problems, wrinkles, and fine lines, you should consider microneedling. Since this treatment doesn’t involve lasers, chemicals, or external components, it’s safe for everyone. However, you shouldn’t have active skin infections around the treatment areas.

What happens during the microneedling procedure?

Your microneedling procedure starts with a personal consultation with our skincare providers. They carefully examine your skin type and concerns, review your medical history, and discuss your cosmetic goals to curate the treatment plan. Microneedling is a highly individualized treatment — our providers calibrate the depth of the treatment according to your specific concerns.

The provider will cleanse your skin and apply a numbing cream to ensure you have a comfortable experience. Once your skin is numb, they use the microneedling device to make micro-punctures on your skin’s surface, penetrating the uppermost layers of the skin. The overall duration depends on the treatment areas. You won’t experience any pain or discomfort.

How soon do I recover from the treatment?

Most patients have minor redness and swelling around the treatment areas for about 1 to 3 days, but there are no major side effects. You can resume your daily activities immediately, including work. If you’re worried about discretion, the redness can easily be explained away as a harsh sunburn.

When do I see the results from microneedling?

Most people see mild improvements immediately after the treatment, but it takes a few weeks to see proper results. You’ll notice the results once your skin starts producing collagen fibers, which may take approximately six weeks or more. The results continue improving over several months.
