Bruising and Anti-Aging Procedures.

Microneedling is a procedure that uses fine needles to create controlled skin injuries, triggering collagen production and improving skin texture. It can benefit skin tone, reduce scars, and have minimal downtime. Results vary, and multiple sessions might be needed. Consult experts like Lynne Worthington, Fountain of Youth Medical Spa here in Knoxville, TN, before considering microneedling or any cosmetic treatment to understand its benefits and potential risks.

I'm a bruising machine. I play Pickleball, and the ball hits my arm, and I've got a delightfully ugly "older person" bruise for weeks. It's worth it, though. I take a baby aspirin, and with my doctor's permission, I usually stop it the week before any procedure. However, if I forget, it's not a worry because any bruising caused by microneedling means I will look even better when the bruises disappear.


Benefits of Microneedling:

  • Skin Texture Improvement: Microneedling can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars by promoting collagen production and skin regeneration.

  • Skin Tone and Elasticity: The procedure can improve skin elasticity and firmness, enhancing youthful appearance.

  • Reduced Pore Size: Some people notice a reduction in pore size after undergoing microneedling.

  • Reduced Hyperpigmentation: Microneedling can aid in reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation and sun damage.

  • Minimal Downtime: Microneedling has minimal downtime compared to more invasive procedures.

A consultation is always best. Call and make an appointment. It's essential to consult with a qualified dermatologist or licensed aesthetician before undergoing microneedling or any other cosmetic procedure. They can assess your skin, discuss your goals, and help you understand the potential benefits and risks. Microneedling can be effective for specific skin concerns, but individual results may vary. Always prioritize your safety and well-being when considering any cosmetic treatment.
