Microneedling for Skin Rejuvenation
Treating textural changes on the skin that come with aging and acne scarring can be challenging. Thankfully there are a number of treatment available for these skin imperfection, including everything from chemical peels to laser skin resurfacing. Customization of treatments is extremely important, and that is why it is great to have new treatment options that ensure patients achieve the best results possible.
Microneedling has definitely found its place on the resurfacing and rejuvenation scene. The procedure uses fine-tipped acupuncture-like needles to create micro-perforations in the skin. The process breaks up scar tissue and simulates trauma to the outer layer of the skin, inducing collagen production and inducing the skin to turn over its imperfections.
The act of creating these tiny “wounds” stimulates the skin to heal itself and allows for the skin in the scarred or damaged areas to, in a way, correct and heal itself.
Not only is this procedure helpful for acne scars, but it can also helpful to those who are seeing a decrease in volume or lapse in the elasticity of the skin. The induced collagen helps to strengthen the skin which can help reverse the signs of aging, like sagging or loose skin. Regaining that elasticity through microneedling can ultimately help to minimize fine lines and wrinkles as well.
The procedure is actually almost painless, and very well tolerated with minimal to no adverse effects. Throughout the process patients should notice a tightening of the skin, as well as a more refreshed appearance.
There’s no need to become accustomed to scars, fine lines or skin damage. See a true difference in your skin today.
