Collagen is an important protein that exists naturally in your body. It essentially holds your body together, and in regard to your skin, it provides structure, strength and volume. As we age, collagen production slows, resulting in loose and sagging skin. Radio frequency microneedling in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, can improve collagen production and improve your skin’s appearance. To schedule an appointment with our dentist, Dr. Michelle A. Sanor, call today!
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a procedure used to stimulate collagen production, improve the texture of your skin and enhance your overall appearance. Our dentist and team begin by numbing the area to ensure a comfortable experience, usually with a topical numbing cream. A microneedling pen is then used to create small puncture points in your skin. Your body responds to these punctures by producing collagen and elastin to rejuvenate your skin. This process is minimally invasive and typically takes about 15 to 30 minutes.
Microneedling is a safe and effective treatment for all skin types and can be performed on the skin of both your face and your body. Microneedling may be recommended to:
- Reduce crow’s feet, fine lines and wrinkles
- Tighten skin and reduce the signs of aging
- Reduce sun damage and hyperpigmentation
- Eliminate stretch marks
- Treat scars, including acne scars
- Shrink pores
You may require several microneedling treatments depending on the condition of your skin and the look you want to achieve. Our dentist will work with you to determine how many treatments you need. Please contact our office today to schedule your consultation and learn more about the benefits of microneedling.
