Microneedling creates micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body's production of collagen & elastin, reducing acne scars, pore size & improving overall skin texture.Book Now
Your skin is a powerful part of your body that acts as a barrier to protect you from harmful environmental occurrences we face on a day to day basis. Harsh sun rays, bacteria, moisture all cause detrimental effects to our skin overtime. Microneedling is a beneficial treatment to battle the natural unwanted effects our skin faces everyday.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses extremely fine needles to lightly puncture the skin and stimulate a tightening effect. Hundreds of tiny needle wounds activate the body’s natural healing response, sending signals of elastin and collagen reproduction that essentially plumps the affected areas and causes a radiant effect to the skin.
Microneedling treatment is ideal for patients struggling with acne and or acne scars, age spots, fine wrinkles, thinning skin, large pores, uneven skin texture, stretch marks, and hair loss. The procedure can be beneficial to a wide variety of skin types and offer fairly immediate results. Microneedling overcomes the side effects of scarring and hyperpigmentation that may be seen with other procedures involving intrusion of the epidermis. In contrast to a dermaroller, a popular at-home Microneedling device, Microneedling involves a deeper penetration into the skins outer layer thus promoting more effective results.
Benefits And Risks
Microneedling delivers the same benefits of fractional lasers but is much more cost efficient and has a much shorter down time. The micro-wounds will promote continuous improvement to your skin and actually strengthen the epidermis overtime. This procedure has no major side effects while providing you with beautiful, glowing results.
Risks involved with Microneedling are much lower than other aggressive skin treatments including chemical peels and laser treatments. However, Microneedling can cause possible minor complications if done incorrectly. To avoid these complications, schedule an appointment with our highly skilled professionals.
Who Should Avoid Microneedling?
Microneedling may not be for you if you suffer from skin conditions like eczema, or rosacea as it could cause further irritation. It is also important to take precaution if you notice you scar easily or have a history of complications during the healing process of a wound. Avoid Microneedling if you are pregnant or have undergone skin radiation within the last 12 months.
Your clinician will begin by cleaning the skin of the targeted area and apply a topical anesthetic to reduce discomfort. The Microneedling portion of your appointment will last approximately 30 minutes depending on the size of the targeted area. The Collagen P.I.N. professional needling device, is applied to the patient's skin to help stimulate new healthy skin growth. Once the treatment is finished, your clinician will gently rub a soothing serum to decrease inflammation. Discomfort can range but is usually brief and mild. Daily activities can be immediately resumed after the procedure is completed.
