MICRO-NEEDLING

Micro-Needling for Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Micro-needling is known as skin needling or Collagen Induction Therapy. The practice has been around for many years, but not commonly known or talked about. We have been doing Micro-needling for over 10 years. Recent TV attention by the Rachel Ray show as well as The Doctors has spotlighted this technique for acne scarring, wrinkles, and stretch marks. With new found popularity, many people are asking for Micro-needling the new revolutionary skin tightening, facial rejuvenation and collagen-boosting treatments. It greatly improvements acne scarring, scars from car accidents and facial scars from surgeries.

This procedure preserves the epidermis, and stimulates new collagen deposits.  It has similar results to Laser, Chemical Peels and other Dermabrasion treatments but with less damage to the epidermis. Ongoing treatments are possible, unlike other methods of resurfacing the skin due to the destruction of whole layers of epidermis. This is an alternate to laser resurfacing that preserves the epidermis and stimulating collagen deposits in the skin.

Multiple shallow punctures are made in the skin creating dermal damage and slight bleeding. This dermal damage induces the release of growth factors that stimulates the production of collagen. This is the object of all skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments. Skin Needling or (Multitrepannic Collagen Actuation) creates minimal dermal damage without the removal of the healthy epidermis. Because the epidermis is left intact, the healing period is rapid. The skin does not experience sun sensitivity, skin color loss, hyper-pigmentation or thinning of the skin.

The skin is red and swollen for a few days with a light scab covering the treated area. This happens with any skin penetration procedure. However, a light cover of make-up will conceal any marks so a normal routine may be continued. Outer healing occurs within 4-5 days. Although some immediate improvement is noted, inner healing (dermis) continues to smooth and tighten the skin for the next 6-9 months as collagen is laid down in a smoother, more regular manner.
