MICRONEEDLING: Scars, Stretch Marks and Wrinkles, Oh My!
How does Microneedling work?
MicroNeedling takes advantage of using what the body naturally does best – healing itself. MicroNeedling is an all-natural treatment that rejuvenates the skin by causing a “wound/heal” process without permanently damaging the skin. Specifically designed needles are used during MicroNeedling which help break down old strands of collagen in scars and wrinkles by making microscopic punctures in the epidermal layer of the skin.
By “wounding” the skin’s most outer layer (the epidermis), the body then begins the “healing” process by producing new collagen and melanin (color) filling the punctures naturally resulting in smoother skin. Blood flow increases and helps in recoloring scar tissue as well. All produced safely and naturally. This procedure is less evasive than laser procedures or chemical peels used to resurface the skin.
Will MicroNeedling Help With My…?
- Stretch marks from pregnancy/weight loss
- Acne scars on my face and body
- Chicken pox scars/picked scab
- Wrinkles on the face/neck
- Shrink facial pores
- Burn/scar tissue
The answer is, YES! Microneedling is an advanced skin resurfacing procedure which uses a tattoo machine to soften skin surface irregularities and smooth the skin. This is an excellent treatment option for wrinkles or scarring.
Microneedling is also a wonderful treatment option for clients with scarring due to burns or trauma. By breaking down damaged collagen strands, microneedling encourages and stimulates new collagen growth and flexibility. Over time, microneedling helps improve the appearance and feel of scar tissue. Depending on the patient’s individual needs, treatment can be performed on smaller areas of the body or on the entire face.
