Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a skin treatment involving the use of miniature needles to form many tiny, virtually invisible channels in the top layer of skin. Although it may sound intimidating, the process is quite simple and effective at minimizing signs of sun damage, aging, blemishes, and more. If you are considering any type of cosmetic procedure, you will likely have certain questions that you would like answered first.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that creates micro-openings to trigger your body’s natural healing processes. The treatment causes skin cell turnover and boosts your production of collagen.
The treatment has established a reputation for being highly-effective at treating skin conditions like light lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, blemishes, enlarged pores, and scars caused by injury, acne, or surgery.
What Makes It Better Than Other Skin Treatments?
To begin, microneedling does not result in any real downtime. This is because we are only affecting the skin to a controlled, minor degree. The tiny channels that are formed by the treatment process are basically invisible to the naked eye. Since less skin tissue is damaged in the course of the treatment, your recovery time will be minimal to nonexistent.
Another advantage of undergoing a microneedling treatment is that it offers results that are very natural compared to some other types of procedures. We are simply working with your own body to stimulate its natural production of collagen to renew the appearance of your skin.
Can the Treatment Be Performed in Combination with Other Treatments?
In many cases, yes! Some patients choose to have their sessions combined with the application of skin care products that sometimes cannot penetrate very far into the skin, which limits their effectiveness. Microneedling creates thousands of microscopic punctures in your skin that allow topical products to bypass the skin’s natural barrier, rendering them many times more effective through enhanced skin penetration.
