Given the opportunity, the body is quite capable of taking care of itself. This is especially true when it comes to skin rejuvenation. Stimulating the creation of healthy replacement tissue doesn’t necessarily require abrasive resurfacing and other invasive measures. Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that kick-starts a skin renewal process. This is accomplished via the creation of tiny micro-channels in the skin. Also known as collagen induction therapy, the treatment results in smoother skin that is less wrinkled and contains less noticeable blemishes.
Creating Micro-Channels to Rejuvenate the Skin
If a thin channel is created in the skin, the body rushes to fix the problem. The channel fills with liquid scar tissue, lymphatic fluid, blood platelets, and nutrients. The template is there for the creation of healthy replacement tissue. The adjacent skin cells act as an order instruction to duplicate the tissue.
When many of these tiny channels are created, the healing process includes an acceleration in the amount of new collagen in the skin. After a series of treatments, noticeable improvement in skin tone and texture is typically achieved.
Consultation and Treatment
Some of our clients hear about microneedling but don’t know much about the long-term benefits they can enjoy after this treatment is performed. We often recommend microneedling as a treatment to improve the overall skin texture and minimize the appearance of scarring, hyperpigmentation, and other blemishes.
During a consultation at our office, we can describe the procedure in detail and design a customized treatment schedule according to the outcome desired by the client. Each session is performed in the comfort of our office.
Advantages Over Other Treatments
Microneedling is performed without ablating an entire patch of skin, and there are no chemicals involved, so it can be performed regardless of skin tone. The results tend to be long-lasting because of the increased amount of collagen in the skin after the treatment plan is completed.
At Luminous Health & Wellness in Humble, we are experts in the area of skin rejuvenation and have found microneedling to be one of the most effective treatments for wrinkled or damaged skin. If you are interested in this treatment, fill out a form, and we’ll get back to you!
