Microneedling is a skin treatment involving the use of a special device to break down old scar tissue, reduce lines and wrinkles, and promote skin cell generation. The procedure leads to the formation of new skin layers containing fresh collagen and elastin fibers, as well as enhancing blood circulation in the skin. This non-surgical skin rejuvenation technique has been growing in popularity, largely due to its ability to enhance the appearance of your skin without the need for extensive downtime.
How Does Microneedling Work?
We gently move the microneedling device along the skin surface to create numerous micro-channels. Although these microscopic openings are virtually invisible to the naked eye, they trigger a collagen production process that makes your skin thicker and minimizes wrinkles and other types of skin imperfections.
What Conditions Does It Treat?
Microneedling has been proven to be safe and effective for the treatment of skin problems like lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, blemishes, and scars caused by acne, injury, or trauma. Virtually any cosmetic problem found on the skin can be improved with this treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
You can have as many microneedling treatments as you require, provided you wait a set amount of time between each treatment session to allow your skin time to heal completely. The number of treatments that you require depends upon the type and severity of your skin condition. Unless you have extremely superficial skin problems, you would likely benefit from multiple treatment sessions, as each session builds upon the results of previous ones.
Would I Make a Good Candidate?
If your skin is currently free from an active infection or breakout, you would likely make a suitable candidate for the procedure. Since we are tricking your body into remodeling your skin, patience is very important. Microneedling helps to enhance the absorption of skin care products like creams, lotions, gels, and serums. So if you’ve been looking for a way to make these products more effective, this treatment could be perfect for you.
