Micro needling, also known as collagen induction therapy or derma rolling, is capable of inducing collagen production without causing any significant damage to the topmost layer of skin. This cosmetic treatment can diminish the appearance of sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles, superficial scars, hyper-pigmentation and stretch marks.
Micro needling has even proven effective for treating select areas of hair loss, rosacea, acne and enlarged pores. It is currently one of the fastest and least invasive ways to rejuvenate the overall appearance of the skin. Best of all, there are few risks, almost no side effects and minimal recovery time.

The treatment is performed with a small, pen-shaped, electric device that has twelve, tiny needles at its tip. Before the procedure is started, a light, numbing cream is applied to the surface of the skin to minimize discomfort. A vitamin-rich, rejuvenating serum is then liberally applied to the targeted area just before the device is moved across the dermis.
As each needle penetrates the skin, a small channel or micro-wound is created, thereby, allowing the topical treatment to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin. This controlled form of skin damage strips away old, damaged skin cells and promotes the proliferation of new collagen and elastin fibers, healthy skin cells and even new capillaries for improved blood flow.
Preparing for Micro Needling
If you have superficial scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, discolored or blotchy skin, enlarged pores or acne, micro needling could be right for you.
Scheduling a consultation will give you the opportunity to learn more about this procedure and any specific, pre-treatment and aftercare instructions your provider might have.
It is not uncommon for people to experience redness after a micro-needling treatment has been performed. These issues, however, will likely abate on their own within just four to six hours after treatment.
Micro Needling Results
Micro needling will quickly create a bright, vibrant complexion by stripping away dull, damaged skin. The micro-wounds that the micro needling device creates will not be visible. The skin will look refreshed and noticeably younger. You’ll see continued improvements over the next several weeks as increased collagen and elastin fibers fill out the treated areas and fine lines are erased.
Scars will gradually fade, and enlarged pores will slowly shrink. With new capillaries and greater blood flow, you can also look forward to a more even and vibrant skin tone. Contact Rejuvenate Medspa today to schedule an appointment.
