Microneedling is, without a doubt, of of the top celebrity beauty secrets. Why? Because it’s a fabulous and affordable treatment option for anyone who wants to look younger and address common skin concerns. But what is microneedling and how does it work? Let’s dig into the details about this celebrity-and patient-favorite skin care treatment.
As a process designed to rejuvenate the skin, microneedling is particularly useful for treating fine lines and wrinkles. This is because increased collagen administered through the treatment supports the skin, smoothing out the treated area. While it is not considered to be a resurfacing treatment, microneedling also helps to fade brown spots on the skin caused by sun damage. It’s also useful for acne scars as it stimulates collagen to build up and promote improved healing to the area. Microneedling can be used all over the face as well as on the neck, chest, arms, hands, legs and abdomen. Virtually anywhere you could use a little collagen boost, we can treat with microneedling.
In a process known as collagen induction therapy, a pen-like device uses a collection of fine needles to make microscopic, shallow punctures in your skin. This triggers your body’s natural healing processes. As tiny channels form, the body’s natural healing processes get to work. Blood and blood chemicals, such as growth factors, rush to the area to build it up with new collagen and elastin. These two proteins make your skin look smooth, tight and glowing. For best results, we recommend at least three treatments with touch-up treatments to maintain your results.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a concentrate of protein derived from the blood, is often used in conjunction with microneedling. After the initial microneedling procedure, plasma is applied over the treatment area to stimulate the healing process further and allow the introduction of nutrient-rich ingredients to penetrate the skin. The plasma is taken from your own blood, making it safe and reaction-free.
PRP can also be used to treat hair loss in men and women. In this treatment, however, the microneedling device is not used. Instead, the separated and processed PRP is injected directly into your scalp to stimulate dormant hair follicles to regrow hair.
