Microneedling treatments might be the most effective skin rejuvenation treatment you have never heard of. Although the procedure offers excellent results with a strong safety profile, microneedling remains unknown by a large number of people who could really benefit from its wide array of skin-enhancing effects.
Microneedling is a type of skin treatment that uses specialized processes to stimulate your body’s production of collagen. Although the epidermis skin layer remains intact, the micro-channels created by the process are enough to trigger a self-repair cascade that coaxes your body into removing damaged skin tissue and replacing it with healthier, more youthful-looking skin.
1. Your Results Appear Natural
Microneedling does not rely upon the injection of synthetic or foreign substances. Instead, we are relying upon the recuperative powers of your own body to remodel your skin and diminish the appearance of skin problems like scars, blemishes, wrinkles, and age spots.
2. Little to No Downtime
One of the aspects of microneedling treatments is that our patients most appreciate is its ability to treat their skin without a requirement for extensive downtime. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities quickly, if not immediately, after their procedure.
3. Results are Cumulative
If you are lucky enough to only have minor skin complaints, one microneedling treatment may suffice. However, most patients find that they benefit from multiple treatment sessions since each treatment builds upon the results of prior procedures.
4. Magnifies the Effects of Other Treatments
Microneedling is certainly quite effective in its own right, but it becomes even more powerful when combined with other types of treatments like skin care products that benefit from the increased absorption afforded by the micro-openings that microneedling creates.
Your skin possesses an outer barrier called the stratum corneum. This layer of inorganic material consists of lipids, dead cells, and dirt. Although the stratum corneum is needed to prevent the entry of foreign substances, it can also prevent things that we actually want to enter the skin like topical skin care products.
The microscopic channels created by microneedling treatments allow skin care products to penetrate your skin to a greater degree, which has a magnifying effect upon their ability to do their jobs. These topicals are able to flow directly from the surface of your skin into deeper levels to dramatically increase their effectiveness.
