Laser procedures are getting a run for their money with the innovative microneedling treatments available today. This minimally invasive treatment helps stimulate collagen production and dramatically boost skincare product absorption.
What is Microneedling?
Medically known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a minimally invasive skin treatment that is performed with the use of a device that creates a multitude of micro-channels in the surface of the skin. As strange as it may sound, this treatment helps to stimulate the production of collagen fibers to renew the appearance of skin affected by problems ranging from wrinkles to sun damage to acne scars.
What Does Microneedling Treat?
The treatment has been proven to be safe and effective for minimizing skin problems such as lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, dull complexions, stretch marks, blemishes, and scars due to acne, surgery, or trauma.
Who Makes a Good Candidate for the Procedure?
Virtually anyone would benefit from a needling treatment – however, it is not for everyone. Those with active breakouts or ongoing skin infections will need to resolve the condition prior to undergoing this procedure.
What are the Advantages of This Type of Treatment?
There are quite a few skin rejuvenation treatments available today, but microneedling does offer certain advantages over other techniques. For one, no sedation or downtime is required. You will be able to resume work or your daily activities immediately after your quick treatment.
Another advantage is that a needling session will offer you natural results. We are working with the restorative powers of your own body. No invasion is necessary, and the injuries are microscopic and barely visible. Over the following weeks and months, your skin will be transformed as it remodels itself and displays fewer imperfections.
An additional advantage is that needling treatments enhance the penetration of topicals. Lotions, creams, gels, and ointments will enjoy a dramatic boost in product absorption due to the microscopic skin channels created by the treatment process.
