We are very excited to offer Micro-Needling to our patients. This treatment addresses so many skincare concerns that our patients share with us every day.
Micro-needling therapy is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains a disposable head with fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury at a customized depth to achieve the best result. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. Through the process there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, vertical lip lines and stretch marks.
Can Micro-Needling really make my skin look better?
Micro-needling has become very popular because patients are impressed with the awesome results and with how easy it is. Micro-needling works by using your body’s own healing response and collagen producing cells to correct acne scars, enlarged pores and rough skin texture. It improves the appearance and smoothness of your skin by doing the following:
- Turning on the natural healing response of your skin to correct the damage caused by sun, acne or aging
- Creating micro-channels to allow medical grade skin care products to penetrate the deeper layers of skin
- Stimulating collagen producing cells to produce new collagen in your skin to correct fine lines and scars
What are the treatments like?
Treatments are comfortable, safe and affordable plus there is little-to-no downtime! A topical skin numbing cream is included with your treatment so there is little discomfort. Our patients typically leave the office with a slight redness to their face as if they had a sunburn. Within 1-3 days this redness will subside. At this point the skin is glowing and has a youthful, smooth, refreshed look to the surface and new collagen cells are being stimulated to produce healthy cells.
An after-care skincare kit customized to your needs will be recommended after your treatment. This kit will include all of the products you need to get an excellent result from your micro-needling treatment. Treatments can be purchased individually or in packages depending on the conditions that you want to improve.
As always, cosmetic procedures and skincare consultations are complimentary. Schedule yours now.
