What Is Microneedling? Microneedling is a professional skin-rejuvenating treatment that induces collagen proliferation for the progressive improvement in the skin’s tone and texture.
What Conditions Can Mirconeedling Help Improve? A series of microneedling sessions leads to an ongoing production of collagen that is more substantial than it would be without this treatment. Collagen is the fibrous protein that supports the firmness of the skin. This compound also heals wounds. The influx of collagen into a treatment area can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, enlarged pores, and scarring from acne or surgical incisions. Because collagen firms the uppermost layers of the skin, microneedling can also lead to improved tightness and suppleness.
How Does Mirconeedling Work? To introduce greater amount of collagen and elastin into an area of skin, microneedling treatments make minute channels, or micro-wounds, to the epidermis. Equipment used today can be adjusted to the precise depth of channels, up to 2 millimeters. Only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated in a given session, similar to fractional laser resurfacing. This enhancing the healing response that follows treatment.
Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Microneedling? Anyone who would like to diminish the appearance of scarring, stretch marks, or enlarged pores is a good candidate for microneedling. Treatments also improve conditions such as poor texture and hyperpigmentation. Skin laxity does improve with the remodeling of the skin’s collagen matrix. However, there are limitations to the degree of skin tightening that may occur with non-surgical treatments.
