One of the main causes of skin deterioration is the gradual breakdown of collagen and elastin within your skin tissue. This development can be caused by exposure to sunlight, aging, or other factors. If you have recently noticed the steady encroachment of lines and wrinkles or signs of sun damage on your face, you may be looking through your treatment options. Microneedling is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation technique that has helped many people reduce fine lines and wrinkles, surgical and acne scars, stretch marks, and other common skin problems.
Benefits of Microneedling
The treatment involves the use of a special device that creates many tiny channels in the skin in a safe and controlled manner. Unlike some skin rejuvenation treatments, microneedling is safe for any skin type, can be performed quickly, and leads to virtually no recovery time. It is known to:
* Improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as well as enlarged pores.
* Reduce surgical scars, acne scars, and other forms of scars.
* Be safe for all skin types.
What It Treats
Microneedling has been found to be safe and effective for the treatment of skin problems like hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, rough texture, wrinkles, blemishes, sunspots, and scars caused by acne or injury. In addition to making an excellent skin rejuvenation treatment by itself, microneedling works extremely well when combined with skin care products and other solutions like PRP that benefit from enhanced penetration due to the thousands of microscopic channels created by the treatment process.
Benefits of Multiple Treatments
Although some patients benefit from only one microneedling treatment session, most have a series of treatments performed because the results are cumulative in nature. A greater number of treatments may be required when a more involved approach is needed for scar revision and other stubborn skin complaints.
After Your Treatment
Any minor skin redness is temporary and will rapidly fade. Avoid prolonged sun exposure in the hours after your treatment, as your skin will be somewhat sensitive at this time. Make sure to follow our team’s aftercare instructions for optimal results.
