Micro-needling is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment involving the creation of numerous microchannels that actually stimulates skin rejuvenation. This type of treatment is effective for improving the appearance of all sorts of blemishes including age spots, freckles, acne scars, and injury scars. It also helps smooth the skin surface because of the slow but steady increase in the amount of collagen and other proteins in the skin layers.
We are specialists in skin remodeling, and we have found that micro-needling produces positive results that last for many months. Think of the treatment as collagen induction therapy, a therapy that dramatically remodels the skin layers and effectively creates more youthful skin cells.
Problems with the Skin
Adults don’t enjoy the rapid healing from injury that they once did in their childhood years. For one thing, mature adults have less collagen and elastin in their skin, and the capillaries that supply nutrients to the skin layers become smaller as the years pass. Also, blemishes such as acne scars become more prominent, and the damaged cells that make up these discolorations just keep on reproducing without improvement.
Micro-needling can fix these problems. The creation of controlled openings is the kickstart mechanism, and the body takes care of the rest. When these tiny channels are created, the body responds by sending nutrients to the affected areas. The blood and nutrients that fill the wounds are the recipe ingredients for the formation of granular cells, and these eventually transform into new skin cells, ones that are healthier than the damaged cells being replaced.
