Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, microneedling works to reactivate the body’s collagen reserves, which leads to silky, youthful and firm skin. Collagen is essential to a radiant, resilient complexion, yet unfortunately as we age, this all important compound diminishes. Microneedling with Dr. Leong in Morgantown WV not only helps reverse aging, but it also treats acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks and enlarged pores.

What is microneedling?

During your Morgantown WV microneedling session, ultra thin needles are used to create tiny punctures on the skin’s outer layer. Using a handheld device, the practitioner passes over the skin delivering micro wounds that stimulate the body to produce a wound-healing response in the form of collagen and elastin. With the introduction of new collagen, the skin becomes smoother, firmer and more youthful. The session takes about 30 minutes to complete.

Is there any downtime or recovery with microneedling?

After microneedling, the skin often appears red and may feel dry, similar to undergoing a mild sunburn. These symptoms diminish within a matter of days. Collagen regrowth happens gradually, so it is not a quick fix, but results are luminous and lovely over time. You will be able to wear makeup to cover up any temporary pinkness. Be sure to use sunscreen to help protect the outcome of your procedure. Your skin will heal within 3-5 days as you begin to see your results fully. Typically between 4 and 8 sessions are suggested spaced 4-6 weeks apart in order to obtain optimal results.
