Stimulation of the body’s own natural healing processes is an ideal method of health and beauty. Medical MicroNeedling is a break-through technique to use the body’s own natural healing processes to produce more of the essential skin components collagen and elastin, leaving the skin rejuvenated and renewed. At the intersection of biology and beauty, MicroNeedling is the minimally invasive method that truly changes the skin from within.
How it works
MicroNeedling relies on the painless application of fine needles to the skin surface. This process works both with bare skin and along with the application of therapeutic serums. The microscopic damage caused by each needle stimulates the body’s repair mechanisms. As a result, increased collagen and elastin is built up in the treatment areas. When used along with topical products, needling allows the products to penetrate deeper into the skin and enhances their effectiveness.
An advantage of MicroNeedling over some other dermatological treatment options is that it allows the dermis, the skin’s outermost layer, to remain intact. While MicroNeedling-induced skin repairs occur deep within the skin, the surface protective layer allows a rapid return to normal activities after a treatment.
Who can benefit
MicroNeedling can be applied to areas of the skin and for skin concerns that many other procedures simply cannot treat. It can be used around the eyes and mouth as well as on stretch marks and over nearly any part of the body. MicroNeedling is also an excellent treatment option for the prevention and treatment of deep scars such as those left by acne. Fine lines, including those left around the mouth after smoking, and pores can also be improved by medical MicroNeedling. Any area of the body where skin appears to thin with age, such as the hands, may also benefit from MicroNeedling.
What to expect
MicroNeedling is conducted during an office visit. When you arrive, the clinician will provide a comfortable seating position that allows access to the body area that will be treated. Topical analgesic is first applied to the area that will be treated in order to make the procedure pain-free. The MicroNeedling device is then applied gently to the skin, using a technique adapted to the area to be treated and your specific skin needs. Expect the skin to look slightly sunburned immediately following the treatment. Normal activity, including the use of cosmetics, can usually be resumed on the day after a MicroNeedling session. Results will become visible in the weeks following a treatment. The number of treatments required for optimal effect will depend on your skin’s specific needs.
