Microneedling is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that is performed with a small device that creates controlled skin channels by puncturing the skin in surface layers. As strange as it may sound, this type of treatment triggers the production of new skin tissue to reduce signs of aging, acne scars, enlarged pores, and more. The treatment can completely transform the appearance of your skin without any need for extensive downtime.
Collagen Induction Therapy
Medically known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a safe and effective treatment for skin problems like sun damage and wrinkles. It triggers the formation of new collagen tissue to improve skin texture and firmness in a very natural way. The process works with your own body by triggering a self-repair healing cascade that builds new skin tissue in the weeks and months after your treatment.
One of the main benefits of microneedling that patients really appreciate is its ability to increase product penetration. Since tiny channels are formed in your skin by the treatment, the skin begins to act as a sponge, rather than a barrier to lotions, creams, gels, ointments, and serums. Many patients choose to undergo the treatment in conjunction with topical products. This helps to enhance their skin penetration and greatly magnify their effectiveness.
Microneedling is also known for delivering results that build gradually and appear very plausible. Unlike some treatments that dramatically alter the contours of your face, this treatment offers results that are quite soft and natural.
Lines and Wrinkles
A session can effectively minimize light lines and wrinkles that can give away your age. Much of skin aging is due to a loss of facial volume because of collagen depletion. Microneedling helps to stimulate the production of collagen and enhance facial skin volume, leading to a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
Microneedling has the ability to reduce the appearance of scars caused by acne, surgery, or injury. Patients seem to respond best by undergoing a series of sessions. Since the results of the treatments are cumulative, each successive treatment will build upon the results of the last one.
If your skin is looking dull and lifeless, a microneedling treatment can help by removing the buildup of dead skin cells found on your skin’s surface.
