Micro-needling is a popular, non-surgical cosmetic treatment that can address a very vast range of age-related problems and other aesthetic issues. This quick, outpatient procedure is capable of minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, reducing the appearance of enlarged pores, and erasing mild to moderate acne and acne scars. Micro-needling is also an effective solution for age spots, sun spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation, and many other common skin issues.
Rejuvenating the Skin
As people grow older and develop problems like dark spots and larger-than-average pores, they often invest in costly topical agents that are designed to rejuvenate the skin from the outside. Micro-needling takes a more advanced approach by breaking through dead, dry and damaged skin to deliver nutrients where they’re needed most; at the foundation layers. This procedure restores the dermis from the inside out. The process actually triggers the body’s own healing response. In an effort to restore the integrity of its protective covering, the body expedites the formation of new, healthy skin cells while increasing its normal collagen production.
Replenishing Your Collagen Stores
Over the long-term, micro-needling can have a revitalizing effect that goes far beyond merely minimizing blemishes or other aesthetic damages at the surface layers of the skin. This treatment can also have a noticeable firming effect on the underlying skin. As more collagen is produced, creased and hollow facial areas can take on a tighter and more resilient appearance. Due to this fact, micro-needling is sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy.
Receiving Nutrients That are Specific to Your Needs
Micro-needling is a bit more than simply inciting the body’s healing response. It can also deliver powerful, nutrient-dense solutions down to the foundation layers of the dermis in order to support this response. Whether you suffer from fines lines and wrinkles or sun spots across your cheeks, this procedure can help you obtain a clearer and smoother complexion with no cutting or serious aftereffects.
Given the impressive range of benefits that micro-needling can provide, you might expect these treatments to take hours to complete. However, you should be happy to know that these treatments usually take only minutes to complete in the comfort of our office.
