Are you looking for a way to improve the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles without any major downtime? Micro-needling is a fast and simple procedure that can offer you firmer, smoother, and younger-looking skin.
Minimally-invasive techniques like micro-needling are very popular right now among those looking to enhance their appearance with less expense, complications, and downtime often associated with conventional cosmetic surgery. The treatments offer results that appear very natural and develop gradually in the weeks and months after your treatment.
What is Micro-Needling?
Also known as collagen induction therapy, micro-needling stimulates collagen production and helps to strengthen the epidermis layer of your skin. It can be used to treat quite a few skin conditions like scars, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, stretch marks, and more. Virtually any condition on the surface of your skin can be improved by undergoing the treatment.
One key benefit to this type of treatment is that it requires no extended downtime. You can resume your work schedule or daily activities immediately after your procedure. Additionally, your results will appear very natural since we are working with your own body. Over the weeks and months after your treatment, your skin condition will improve very gradually and naturally.
What Should I Expect During My Treatment?
During the treatment, a special device is used to form micro-channels in the skin to stimulate new collagen synthesis. Each microscopic opening forms a tiny channel that stimulates your body into the production of new collagen fibers to fill in the areas.
Would I Make a Good Candidate for this Treatment?
You may make a good candidate for micro-needling if you are in good overall health and not suffering from a current skin infection or active breakout. Most patients actually benefit from multiple micro-needling treatments spaced weeks apart to give the skin time to heal and remodel between treatments.
Can I Combine the Treatment with Another Procedure?
Many patients take advantage of the way that micro-needling enhances skin care product penetration. A session creates microscopic channels in the surface of your skin, allowing your skin care products to penetrate further into your skin and become much more effective.
