Microneedling: breathes new life into your skin
Lasers, fillers, peels, and microdermabrasion provide great results, and each has its individual benefits. They all revitalize skin and repair signs of aging.and sun damage. Microneedling, a new development, takes skin revitalization to new heights. Microneedling should be at the top of the list of go-to treatments when it comes to generating collagen and reinvigorating your skin. It can also be used to reduce scars and correct hyperpigmentation. This procedure is a must for anyone fighting a battle with aging skin. It’s popular for a reason; it works.
Downtime is not desirable to busy individuals. Patients tend to seek minimally-invasive treatment that doesn’t create bruises, swelling, or redness. The best treatments are long-lasting and without unpleasant side effects. Microneedling is a cutting-edge treatment that cannot be beaten when it comes to breathing new life into the dermis.
Hooray for collagen
One of the unpleasant side effects of aging is that collagen production declines and skin tone begins to fail. Treatments that increase the production of collagen result in tighter skin and fewer wrinkles. In order to boost collagen production, treatments must “injure” the dermis. This “distress” encourages the skin to repair itself by creating new collagen. The beautiful plumpness makes the skin firmer and gives it a new glow.
Microneedling is a popular collagen-induction treatment which is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. These needles are used to puncture the skin at various depths to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that stimulates the skin to produce collagen which “heals” the wounds created by the fine needles. There is little-to-no downtime with this procedure, and it is safe for most skin types.
The magic of a microneedling pen
Microneedles ranging from 0.1 to 2.5 mm. A numbing agent is used so the patient is comfortable throughout the procedure which includes at least 2 passes over the skin of the area to be treated. Needle penetration, frequency of needle penetration, and the number of passes all affect the outcome of the procedure. Improvement can be observed after the first treatment; however, it takes a series of treatments to improve the skin’s condition by continuing to stimulate collagen production.
Patients who have a history of keloid scarring or a history of herpes simplex virus around the mouth should discuss this with the aesthetician before receiving treatment. There are some absolute contraindications to this procedure such as scleroderma, collagen vascular disease, clotting disorder, active infection, and immunosuppression. Overall, this is a safe, effective facial-rejuvenation treatment.
