Have you been fighting signs of skin aging or battling problems like scars or other blemishes? A growing number of patients are turning to micro-needling treatments to help minimize problems like these. The procedure is becoming extremely popular due to its ability to offer significant skin rejuvenation without the need for sedation or extensive downtime.
What is Micro-Needling?
Collagen induction therapy, commonly known as micro-needling, is a skin rejuvenation treatment involving the use of a special device that stimulates the production of fresh collagen and elastin fibers. Micro-needling has been proven to be effective for the correction of lines, wrinkles, scars, blemishes, and hyperpigmentation.
What is a Treatment Like?
Micro-needling is a fairly simple procedure. During the treatment, which is performed in the comfort of our office, many tiny micro-channels are created in the epidermis. The epidermis remains intact, but the treatment triggers a skin rejuvenation process that results in skin remodeling.
Patients do not normally require any downtime after their micro-needling procedure. It is not uncommon to experience some minor skin redness in the hours after your treatment. Patients typically are able to resume their normal activities right after their treatment. Any skin redness should be minor and temporary.
You should begin noticing some skin rejuvenation in about a week or so. Your results will continue to build in the weeks after your micro-needling treatment. Your skin will require this time in order to build fresh collagen to renew the appearance of your skin and minimize your skin problems. Most patients benefit from multiple treatment sessions to obtain optimal results.
