Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment for unevenly toned, poorly textured skin. Wrinkling and creasing is usually the first sign that the skin is experiencing age-related problems. The main culprits are a decrease in collagen production and a more limited ability for the dermal layers to hold moisture. A proven method for improving the appearance and suppleness of the skin is to promote new tissue growth and collagen production through the creation of many tiny micro-channels in the skin.
This will result in an acceleration of new tissue growth. Skin needling, therefore, results in clearer skin with fewer regional discolorations, as well as better overall skin texture. We highly recommend microneedling to anyone who has concerns about the appearance of age-related wrinkles and more prominent areas of hyperpigmentation.
Collagen Induction Therapy
The main benefit of this treatment is the resulting increase in the amount of collagen in the skin layers. This doesn’t happen overnight, but after a series of treatment sessions and a month or so of replacement tissue creation, the skin becomes more taut and supple thanks to the elevated amount of collagen throughout the skin layers.
When the skin is smoothed in this way, it also retains moisture better. The replacement skin cells are healthier than the discarded ones, and this means less visibility of such discolorations as age spots, injury scars, and even freckles.
There are lots of fancy-looking instruments on the market, but we strongly advise against trying this type of skin treatment at home. It’s like trying to cut your own hair or stitching up your own skin cut. Microneedling should only be performed by a licensed professional with experience in this procedure. That’s where we come in.
After consulting with the client and observing the skin condition, our team at Madonna OBGYN and Medical Spa may recommend this treatment. Some of the long-term benefits include smoother skin with fewer dynamic and set wrinkles, general improvement in skin tone, and less prominent scarring from acne or injury. Microneedling is also effective at reducing the appearance of stretch marks, melasma, and even rosacea.
