One of the most common strategies among noninvasive skin rejuvenation techniques is an innovative process called micro needling. This is a popular treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne and acne scars, dark spots, sun spots, enlarged pores and hyperpigmentation, and many other common skin issues. This treatment is performed by a medical professional with a small, hand-held device fitted with tiny needles. The micro needling tool creates micro-channels in the skin, prompting the body to fill in the areas with new collagen and elastin production. This safe, simple procedure is capable of producing rapid and remarkable improvements across the face, hands and neck with little to no downtime.
Bring Out Your Best Skin
Micro needling is an excellent treatment for those who wish to minimize wrinkles, dark spots, and blemishes. This procedure both incites and expedites the natural healing process. Once dermal channels have been created by the micro needling tool, the body will work to seal these openings and protect itself from the potentially harmful microorganisms that live outside of the skin. One large component of these healing efforts is a significant increase in collagenesis, or the natural production of collagen. New collagen production can have a noticeable plumping effect on the dermis, filling in fine lines and moderate wrinkles across the treated area. New collagen and elastin production can produce a surprising array of improvements in the dermis, including a reduction in stretch marks, pore size, and acne scarring.
Is Micro Needling Right For You?
Because micro needling treatments leave the skin intact, these procedures can be safely repeated regularly for greatly expanded and extended benefits. Moreover, micro needling procedures are often suitable for use in areas that cannot be safely addressed with chemical peels or laser treatments, such as on the chest, hands, mouth and skin around the eyes. The ease and convenience of micro needling makes it the ideal procedure for those with cosmetic concerns and a desire to improve their appearances without having to resort to incisions, tissue removal or other invasive measures.
What To Expect During Your Treatment
Prior to your treatment session, your skin will be thoroughly cleaned, and a mild, topical numbing agent will be applied. Your provider may apply a collagen-stimulating product or another nutrient-rich solution to the treated area as well. The micro needling tool will then be passed over the targeted areas. As one of our medical professionals applies the device to your skin, the vitamin-rich solution that has been applied will seep into the deepest layers of the skin for maximum effects. After the micro needling is complete, a moisturizing agent will be used to hydrate, heal and protect the skin.
The number of micro needling sessions required at Rejuvenate Med Spa will vary from patient to patient. Most patients receive between three and six treatments to achieve the best results. Micro needling can be safely repeated every four to six weeks until the desired results are achieved.
