In the meantime, continue reading to learn more about the treatment and the types of conditions that can be treated with it.
What Is Microneedling and How Does It Work?
Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, this minimally invasive procedure uses either a dermal roller or an automated pen like the Collagen P.I.N. to cause micro-injuries via tiny pinpricks to the skin. This process triggers the skin’s natural healing process by producing new tissue that is rich in collagen. The new tissue has a more even tone and texture than it did before and it is often more firm as well due to the increased levels of collagen. The result? A complexion that is youthful and radiant.
Microneedling treatments can be combined with other med spa services to further enhance their effects. For example, you can combine your microneedling treatment with a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial. PRP facials are safe and effective because they use your own plasma as the primary treatment agent. When combined with microneedling, growth factors in the PRP are absorbed below the surface of the skin for an effective anti-aging solution that enhances the texture and improves skin tone.
6 Common Conditions Treated with Microneedling
Did you have less than ideal skin when you were younger? Whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples can take their toll on your complexion. In particular, cystic acne has a tendency to leave scars behind that can leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance long into your adult years. Microneedling works very well to reduce the appearance of acne scars, helping you reveal a fresh face to the world.
There’s nothing quite like soaking up the sun’s rays when you’re climbing Horsetooth Rock or boating out on the reservoir. However, all of this exposure to UV rays can leave its mark on your skin. Eventually, sun damage will show up in the form of sunspots on your skin. Although typically harmless, these flat, brown spots on your skin can make you look older than you are. Thankfully, microneedling can reduce their appearance.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Nothing robs a person of their youthful appearance like fine lines and wrinkles. Whether they are on your face, neck, or your décolletage, they can detract from your natural beauty. Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is one of the things that microneedling does best, making it an effective non-surgical anti-aging procedure. If you have concerns about fine lines and wrinkles, contact our med spa to learn how you can benefit from microneedling.
Enlarged pores can be a blessing and a curse. While they can help your skin absorb serums, lotions, and other topical treatments quickly, they also have a tendency to get clogged easily. Not to mention that the larger they are, the more visible they are. Many individuals find the appearance of large pores undesirable and choose to enjoy the appearance of smaller pores with microneedling treatments.
As we age, our skin loses its ability to produce collagen and elastin as abundantly as it did in our youth. The result is skin that is inelastic and sagging. Not only can this affect your overall appearance and make you look older than you really are, but in the case of sagging eyelids, it can also present a safety issue as it affects your sight. Even the thinnest, most sensitive skin can benefit from microneedling to restore elasticity and firmness.
Uneven Skin Tone
There are many factors that can contribute to an uneven skin tone, which is also known as hyperpigmentation. Excessive sun exposure, pollution, hormones, and scarring can all have an effect. By promoting new skin tissue generation, microneedling works to restore even skin tones. Results can be further enhanced by incorporating regular exfoliation, the right skincare products, and cosmetics that include an SPF of 30 or higher.
