Microneedling procedures have helped thousands of patients improve the condition of aging skin without the need for surgery. This innovative technique has been found to be safe and effective for the minimization of problems as diverse as fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, and scars caused by acne, surgery, or trauma.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a modern skin rejuvenation treatment with origins in ancient times. In centuries past, healers used specialized techniques to encourage the body to remove old, damaged skin tissue and replace it with more youthful skin. Although the technique has been greatly refined over the years, the basic principle is still the same: We stimulate the production of new skin tissue for the minimization of signs of aging and sun damage.
How is the Treatment Performed?
It all starts with a consultation, during which we’ll help you determine if the treatment is right for you. During the actual treatment, we use a device to create many tiny micro-channels in the upper layers of your skin. Although they are virtually invisible to the naked eye, these microscopic punctures promote the formation of new skin tissue and help minimize problems like wrinkles, scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and rough skin texture.
Would I Make a Good Candidate?
As long as you are not suffering from an ongoing skin infection or outbreak, you should make a suitable candidate for a procedure. If you are overall healthy and have realistic expectations regarding the treatment and results, it could be perfect for you.
Can Microneedling Be Combined with Other Treatments?
In many cases, a microneedling treatment can can be combined with another form of treatment. In fact, microneedling enhances the effects of topical skin care products due to its ability to increase absorption.
