Having any sort of medical procedure done can be intimidating, even when the service you’re seeking is only skin deep.
Microneedling in Salt Lake City has become popular in recent years as a natural, effective method of skin rejuvenation, but plenty of people who come to Spruce Aesthetics & Infusion Bar wonder if it’s safe.
Let’s explore the safety of microneedling for rejuvenating the skin. We’ll go over the general safety of the procedure, as well as a few things our clients can do to help produce the best possible results.
Microneedling is considered a safe procedure and because it’s non-surgical, and since it doesn’t require the use of sedative or anesthetic drugs, there are very few risks involved with having it done. Microneedling can even be done in conjunction with other services, like PRP.
In fact, the FDA has cleared the Skin Pen® microneedling device, which is the product that Spruce aestheticians use for our skin treatments. Microneedling tools like the Skin Pen® utilize very small, sterile needles to puncture the skin just deep enough to stimulate the derma layer to produce the collagen cells that promote healing.
Though microneedling is a very low-risk procedure, there are a few things that you can do to ensure safety both during and after your session.
First, visit an established aesthetics office or medspa in Salt Lake City to have your procedure done, one with a great reputation, friendly staff, and positive reviews. From there, only have microneedling services performed by certified, medically trained professionals. If you followed the first step, the second will be a breeze.
Next, consult your aesthetician to go over any concerns you might have and ask any questions that come to mind. The professional you’re working with will explain the procedure to you, ensure that you’re as comfortable as possible, and provide you with aftercare instructions.
Following your aesthetician’s instructions is a critical part of the microneedling process. After your procedure, you might be instructed to apply topical ointment to your skin to protect it, avoid applying makeup for a given amount of time, and protect your skin in general. Listen carefully to the instructions given and keep the aftercare printout to reference later.
You might notice slight swelling at the site, redness, a dry sensation, or mild discomfort the day after your procedure. This is a normal part of the healing process, so be sure to stick to the relief instructions provided. If you’re at all concerned or a new question arises, be sure to contact your aesthetician for clarification.
Working with an experienced professional at Spruce and following instructions are the two biggest keys to success in any aesthetic procedure, so if you focus on satisfying those points, attending a microneedling session will be safe and effective. Plus, you’ll love the way your skin looks and feels when all is said and done.
