How Can Micro-Needling Help With Skin Tightening?

One of the newest technologies in skin rejuvenation is Micro-Needling. This treatment helps with a multitude of skin issues and concerns, and can offer exemplary results. Beyond general rejuvenation, micro-needling can also help you by assisting with acne scarring, pigmentation issues, textural consistency, and tightening of the skin.

Micro-Needling For Skin Tightening

The Micro-Needling procedure is unique, as it can almost trick your skin into believing that it needs to rejuvenate itself. By putting micro-perforations in the skin, micro-needling stimulates the body’s response to injury on a microscopic level, that in turn induces a cascade of molecular events within the skin. “This procedure stimulates the skin to produce collagen, which increases volume in the treated areas,” says Dr. Miriam Hanson, a board-certified dermatologist and skin care expert in Austin, Texas. “Collagen also helps the skin’s elasticity, as well as strengthening it.” This is a great solution for patients who are beginning to experience increased laxity or  sagging of their skin.

The results can be quite amazing. “Patients report a significant impact on the appearance of their skin and the way they themselves,” says Dr. Hanson. It is important to note that a series of treatments is necessary for optimum results. By following an individualized treatment plan, you will allow your skin the full effects of what Micro-Needling can offer you.

“It’s nice to have another treatment option for patients.” Dr. Hanson practices cosmetic dermatology at Sanova Dermatology in Austin, Texas where she sees patients with a variety of aesthetic concerns. Previously, skin tightening was performed through chemical peels, laser resurfacing and even surgical procedures like face lifts, blepharoplasty and neck lifts. Micro-needling adds to the therapeutic armamentarium to treat these difficult and unwanted conditions.
