A growing number of patients are turning to non-surgical skin rejuvenation techniques that do not require any real downtime. If you are dealing with signs of aging like lines and wrinkles or skin that has been damaged by UV radiation, you owe it to yourself to consider undergoing a micro-needling treatment to rejuvenate the appearance of your skin. Before undergoing any type of procedure, you will likely have a number of questions on your mind.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling is an innovative skin rejuvenation treatment that actually has roots in ancient times. Since the time of Cleopatra, it has been known that the delivery of safe, controlled skin channels can trigger the formation of new skin tissue that displays fewer imperfections like sun damage and the effects of aging. Over the years, this technique has been gradually refined to allow its use among the general public. Right now, the treatment is growing in popularity due to its ability to deliver safe results that require no sedation or downtime.
What Conditions Can Be Treated?
This procedure can help to tighten and smooth targeted areas of facial aging. It helps to treat and reduce the signs of aging skin, wrinkles, acne and surgical scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation.
How is a Micro-Needling Treatment Performed?
After thoroughly cleansing your skin, we can apply a topical anesthetic so that you are completely comfortable during your procedure. Then we use a special device covered in tiny, sterile needles to deliver safe channels to the surface layers of your skin. As the device gently glides over your skin, it forms thousands of micro-openings in its surface. Although they are invisible to the naked eye in most cases, these tiny channels trigger the formation of new collagen to rejuvenate the appearance of skin affected by signs of aging or sun damage.
The treatment will normally take weeks or months to deliver optimal results. We are working with the innate healing abilities of your own body. It will take some time for your skin to remodel itself. Patients typically notice the best results after a series of treatment sessions.
