BEWARE of Microneedling

Updated: Apr 17, 2021

When done properly and at the right intervals, your skin will look smoother, healthier, and ageless over time. But be warned, microneedling can result in damaged skin, too! If not performed the right way and by an authorised and skilled professional, you may end up with bad skin that may last forever.

How do you decide if Microneedling is right for you, and most importantly how do you know you can trust your skin to someone advertising microneedling.

Let me assure you... microneedling done by the staff at Fountain of Youth Medical, Farragut is and has been getting rave reviews. But more importantly, Fountain of Youth Medical staff, Lynne & Tim have years of experience, are known in the community, and Lynne teachers all over the United States, the art of anti-aging treatments to include Thread Lifts, PRP, Microneedling, O-Shot, P-Shot and the advanced Stem Cell Therapies.

I've read the great reviews now explain to me what microneedling actually is.

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure. It involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles. The small wounds cause your body to make more collagen and elastin, which heal your skin and help you look younger. You might also hear it called collagen induction therapy.

When I had microneedling, writes Lois Trader, I thought my face might not recover. The procedure didn't hurt very much, due to the numbing cream, but it definitely looked like I had some major track marks on my skin. Within a week, I was glowing. I mean radiating. And those track marks, easily covered by make-up, were gone.

As soon as the deepest layers of your skin are penetrated by the needles, “micro-wounds” are created. This triggers your body's wound healing processes to heal your micro wounds immediately. However, the most dramatic results will not be visible until four to six weeks after treatment.Over the next few weeks, my skin kept getting tighter and more radiant. They suggest waiting 21 days between treatments, but I made an appointment exactly 21 days later due to the amazing results.

This treatment boosts collagen, promotes healthy circulation, and helps to tighten and lift skin. Plus, microneedling is ideal for treating those dreaded acne scars, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and even stretch marks.

The only downtime was the actually day where after the microneedling procedure I took it easy, rather than hit the tennis courts.
