What is Microneedling?
As we age and battle skin conditions, the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates, which leads to fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture. Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, is a great way to address these signs of aging at the cellular level. Microneedling is a cosmetic facial treatment that comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. The outcome is beautiful, youthful looking skin.
What Does Micro-Needling Treat?
Micro-Needling can increase the process and the in which your body heals a scar, making it lighter, smoother and less noticeable. This includes scars from acne, post-traumatic scars and surgical scars.
When the needles penetrate the surface of the skin, this encourages the production of collagen to fill these tiny “wounds”. Once the skin starts healing itself, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkle by revealing smoother and firmer.
Patients with large pores, dead skin cells and skin depressions from previous acne can have the appearance of rougher, bumpier skin. Micro-needling can help minimize the appearance of pores and breakdown the dull skin cells by promoting new cell growth.
Dull, tired skin can be brightened by renewing the skin cells, increasing collagen production and allowing skincare products to absorb into the skin and be more effective.
In addition to the standard micro-needling treatments, after the punctures are made an addition PRP treatment can be added to address specific issues.When PRP is coupled with micro-needling, platelets are extracted from your own blood and applied topically right after to encourage wound healing. Since PRP therapy and micro-needling are both used for skin rejuvenation, when they are used together this accelerates the healing process in a very effective yet natural way.
