Healthy skin looks smooth and has an even skin color and texture. Time, the elements, and the sun can all affect the pigmentation of your skin. Other factors such as hormonal changes and injury can cause dark patches to develop on your skin. If you are concerned about your uneven skin texture and skin pigmentation, you may be interested in learning how micro-needling can help you with dark spots.

When you have dark spots, also referred to as hyperpigmentation, it means that your body is producing melanin in an uneven way. This melanin production is what leads to the appearance of dark spots on your face. There are a whole host of reasons why the melanin production in your face has been thrown out of whack. Some of the more common reasons for this problem include things like acne, sun damage, or injuries like cuts.

You would think that once the sun damage healed or once the acne went away, these dark spots would start to disappear on their own. Unfortunately, for most people, just the opposite happens. Dark spots are stubborn. As time passes, they become more noticeable as opposed to naturally disappearing. The reason for this is that as you get older your body’s cell production changes. Instead of constantly producing new skin cells, old skin cells stick around and start to accumulate. This accumulation of old cells is what makes your skin look dark. It is seen in areas of hyperpigmentation, but it can be seen all over your face with a general dulling of your skin’s appearance.

This is where micro-needling comes into the picture. Micro-needling is designed to give your skin a jolt with the goal of reactivating its ability to produce new fresh skin cells. Another term used to describe micro-needling is collagen induction therapy. The reason it’s referred to as this is because it creates micro-channels to encourage your body to produce more collagen.

In around two weeks after the treatment, you start to notice your skin clearing up. As the healing process continues, the old, discolored skin is replaced by new skin. The new skin is typically free of the hyperpigmentation issues that the old skin had.

As with many cosmetic treatments, you will see some results after your first micro-needling treatment. However, it may take a series of sessions before you see the full results of the procedure. You do not have to live with dark spots. Let us show you how you can get rid of dark spots with micro-needling treatments at Vimi Medi Spa in Scarborough or Markham.
