After watching a video of an Advanced Microneedling treatment being performed you may have the urge to run for the hills, but before you trip over your laces let me share the perks this treatment has to offer. Micro needling has become the most talked about treatment and with all the benefits, no wonder it has everyone addicted.
So what is Microneedling?
Unlike other trends micro needling has been around for many years and has been used to treat a wide variety of skin issues and has been toted to be maybe the best treatment for collagen induction. There are a variety of dermal rollers and pens that can be used, we are fans of the derma roller. The derma roller is a drum shaped medical device studded with many minute pin point needles. Your skin care practitioner rolls the device over your skin to create tiny micro injuries (amazing topical is used!). This catapults the skin into the healing process where an abundance of collagen and elastin is produced, which over time will deliver plumper and smoother skin. This treatment has the ability to treat many types of scarring as well as fine lines and wrinkles. It truly is the holy grail of treatments. Here are 5 reasons why you need to try this treatment today!
Micro-needling is toted to be one of the best treatments for Collagen Induction Therapy (or CIT). The complex process basically tricks your skin into going into repair mode due to the micro injuries. This process releases growth factors that promotes the production of healthy new collagen and elastin. Revealing plumper, glowing and tighter skin.
Microneedling is widely used to treat post surgery scarring and has been proven to significantly reduce the appearance or eradicate them. The treatment is also fantastic for treating acne scarring as well.
Whether it be from acne scars, surgical scars or age spots. Micro needling is excellent for reducing superficial pigment and melasma within the skin. This works in two different ways, first it stimulates cell metabolism, helping superficial pigmentation slough off the surface, and second the microscopic injuries cause the pigmentation breakdown and your body to dispose of it through your lymphatic system.
We get stretch marks for a variety of reasons, and those that suffer with them are constantly trying to get rid of or reduce the appearance of the unsightly marks. By stimulating collagen micro-needling can help reduce the appearance or eradicate new and small ones completely. The younger the stretch mark the more success you can have with this treatment
As microneedling helps to plump the skin through the boost of collagen and elastin produced in the skin, by committing to a course of treatments you can see improvements in fine lines and wrinkles with lasting effects.
For all of our micro needling treatments we usually recommend a course of 4 to 6 treatments depending on severity or depth of the issue you are trying to treat. Why not come in for a complimentary skin consultation to see how we can help you achieve your skin goals.
