A good number of minimally-invasive cosmetic treatments use specialized techniques that cause the skin to actually repair itself. This reduces the look of scars, fine lines, age spots and areas of uneven pigmentation. Microneedling is one of these treatments.
During microneedling, we move a special device over the patient’s skin in order to affect the epidermis. This stimulates the body to produce more collagen and elastin, two beneficial proteins in the skin that help to keep it youthful, supple and taut. This is why microneedling is also called collagen induction therapy. Collagen and elastin diminish with age and are also destroyed by the ultraviolet rays of the sun. This treatment is an excellent way to replenish them.
Microneedling is done in the comfort of our office. Anyone who wants to have the treatment done needs to have a consultation with our expert professional first to see if they’re a good candidate for the procedure. You should be happy to know that most people who are interested in the treatment tend to qualify for it.
During the procedure, many tiny micro-channels are created in the skin. This encourages the body to go into repair mode, ultimately leading to rejuvenated and more youthful-looking skin. Most people need more than one microneedling treatment in order to achieve the desired results.
Whether you are dealing with acne scars, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, or other skin complaints, microneedling could benefit you!
