Have you heard of the new revolutionary skin care technology that is literally, single handedly changing the face of the beauty industry, as we know it? It has been such a game changer over the past few years that it has even been extensively researched by dermatologists at Yale, with startling revelations. What is this groundbreaking innovation and why is it so popular?
Diminishing Blemishes and Smoothing Out Wrinkles
Enter Microneedling, the new and improved multi purpose solution for a host of conditions from diminishing blemishes and smoothing wrinkles to boosting collagen and stimulating hair growth. Why improved? Because though it has been around for close to 25 years, advancements in technology have given it a new platform, which has made it more comfortable an approach and as a result the treatment is currently in high demand.
Also referred to as collagen induction therapy the completely safe, minimally invasive procedure involves stimulating the body’s production of collagen and enhancing the skin’s tissue. Extremely fine needles are used to make hundreds of micro, invisible pin pricks in the epidermis, the top most layer of your skin. These tiny injuries kick the body’s natural healing mechanisms into gear, which results in cell rejuvenation, enhanced collagen and elastin output.
Collagen inhibits the process of aging, while elastin helps to improve skin elasticity and brings back that youthful bounce. Since this technique employs the body’s own healing process the results are beautifully natural. Which is why it fits in perfectly with our Medical Director, Dr. Stephanie Daniel’s philosophy. She and her experienced team of physicians are firm believers in customizing individual skin care regimes for all our customers so that their natural light shines through and they feel beautiful in their skin.
WHAT DOES MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT ENTAIL?
For starters, the total time from the prep work to the end of the treatment takes a couple of hours. It is minimally invasive which means, it doesn’t involve a scalpel or stitches and rest assured you will feel less pain. However, if you do need a numbing aid, Dr. Stephanie will find the right solution for you.
Initially, your face will look inflamed and feel a bit sore, but quite rapidly, your skin will start to feel rejuvenated and refreshed. So once the procedure is complete, the down time is minimal if any exists at all, and you will be ready to hit the ground running in next to no time. Make sure that you wear sunscreen though, because your skin will still be sensitive. The more you treat yourself to this wonderful procedure, the more collagen will be produced in your body.
We could write a whole additional narrative on the benefits of this practice and it would probably be easier to reply to the question of what conditions does it not benefit. In a nutshell, thanks to the increased levels of collagen and elastin in your body, the number of fine lines and wrinkles will be reduced, scars will diminish and fill in naturally, sun ravaged skin will be gracefully healed and the effects of aging will be slowed down. Contrary to what you might think regarding the treatment enlarging your pores, it actually works just the opposite. By increasing the production of collagen around each pore, it causes the skin to plump and firm up around that pore, thus shrinking it and making it smaller. Tinier pores, less chance of dirt getting stuck. Plus, studies have verified that the process actually heightens the skin’s absorption power, so if you are using a topical lotion, it will be absorbed more easily. By creating hundreds of micro holes, which act as channels, your skin is able to take in the product much better than clogged pores can. And yes, Microneedling can also induce hair follicles to work faster so you can expect to experience enhanced hair growth as well. Last but definitely not least, not just your face, but your entire body can be treated, wherever you feel the need to improve the texture and feel of your skin.
MICRONEEDLING AND SCARRING
Microneedling also has the incredibly ability to aid the body in healing scars or scar tissue. For Example, if you have stretch marks, about four to six sittings can help to substantially reduce the scars. However if you are on specific acne medication or if you are pregnant, this line of treatment isn’t recommended for you.
