Micro-needling has been shown to increase the remodeling of the skin by creating thousands of microscopic channels thru the epidermis to increase the formation of new tissue by activating the body’s wound healing cascade (hemostasis-inflammation-proliferation-tissue remodeling). The micro-channeling causes the release of growth factors that promote scar healing and the deposition of new normal woven collagen rather than wrinkles or scars.
It takes four weeks for new collagen synthesis and about four months for the full effect of these treatments. The common response by patients after the initial treatment is that their skin has a “glow” and that fine lines are diminished.
Our microneedling treatments are ideal for non-surgical and non-ablative treatment of various skin conditions such as aging (wrinkles, stretching), scarring (acne, surgical), and dyschromia. Through multiple treatments, microneedling can even be as effective as a fractional CO2 laser in stimulating collagen and elastin production. Given usually in a series of four treatments, sessions are recommended to be spaced three-to-four weeks apart.
Microneedling is indicated for:
- Skin Rejuvenation
- Skin Tightening
- Reduction of Fine Lines / Wrinkles
- Deeper Absorption of Topicals
- Acne / Traumatic Scar Reduction
- Post Surgical Scar Reduction
- Stretch Mark Reduction
- Stimulation of Hair Growth
- Reduction of Hyperpigmentation
