Micro-Needling

 

About Micro-Needling

Youthful appearing skin is filled with collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.   As we age, the collagen and elastin begin to break down at an extremely increased rate.  As this occurs, we note a hollowing of the face and decreased skin integrity.  Procedures aimed at reversing some of these signs of aging include micro-needling.   

Skin needling, also called microneedling therapy,  is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. Through the process of neovascularization and neocollagenesis, there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.

The micro-needling procedure is an in office procedure which utilizes a topical anesthetic on the skin to be treated.  With appropriate anesthetic, it has been described as a "vigorous face massage."  The procedure takes approximately 1 hour and is performed by a trained physician.  Results will take up to 4 weeks to fully realize and the number of treatments are determined by the desired outcome.  Treatments should be repeated in 4-5 week intervals.  Expect 2-3 days of redness, swelling, and peeling skin after the procedure.

Common Micro-needling treatments include: 

skin rejuvenation

acne scar treatment

skin damage treatment

stretch mark treatment
