You may have heard of microneedling, a minimally-invasive procedure that promotes collagen production. Yes, there’s nothing quite like the benefits of an increase in the amount of collagen in the skin. The dermal layers become more supple and taut, and this really improves your overall appearance. However, microneedling can help reverse other signs of aging as well. Our New York clients soon discover the unexpected benefits of the treatment, many of which become more and more apparent in the months following the treatment.
You may also be wary of any sort of minimally-invasive treatment. The name itself does indeed sound a bit frightening. We’re here to assure you that microneedling is a safe, easy-to-undergo treatment that doesn’t involve skin ablation or repositioning, and it’s also less invasive than many other types of skin rejuvenation.
We use a special device to perform microneedling in New York. We choose the needle length based on our examination of your skin, specifically the thickness of the dermal layers in the areas to be treated. We move the device over the treatment area, creating many tiny micro-channels in the process.
The creation of the channels is the key to microneedling. Each one of these channels, spaced apart by several millimeters, quickly fills with lymphatic fluid, nutrients, and liquid scar tissue. Soon, the area is full of primary cells, and these eventually divide into populations of permanent skin cells. The idea here is that these replacement cells are healthier than the surrounding tissue.
What Happens Next?
It is what happens over the following months that amazes our New York clients. The primary benefit is an increase in collagen production. This collagen remodeling results in skin that is smoother, more supple, and far more taut.
The newly created skin tissue is healthier than what it replaces. Blemishes such as injury or acne scars, age spots, and enlarged pores are now far less visible. Skin aging on the cheeks or near the jawline is reduced because of the increase in important proteins in the skin layers. Structurally, the skin is far more youthful. The overall surface contours are now more pleasing in appearance.
