What is Microneedling?
This innovative new skin-rejuvenating treatment is performed to encourage the production of collagen, a building block to gorgeous skin. After just one treatment, many people notice a significant improvement in their appearance.
One of the most impressive aspects of the microneedling technique is the ability to treat various areas of the body. Some of the areas we commonly treat with microneedling include the face, neck, chest, back, arms and hands, abdomen and legs. The extensive options for treatment areas make microneedling a viable option for a number of dermatologic concerns.
How Microneedling Works
Microneedling is based on the scientific fact that “injured” skin is healed with a proliferation of collagen. We use microneedling to create thousands of tiny “wounds.” The device features a tip with several tiny needles. When run across the skin, these needles make microscopic channels through which topical solutions can be readily absorbed.
In addition to reducing the barrier to absorption, microneedling also stimulates the body to produce collagen and elastin in greater amounts. This results in brightening, tightening, and lifting that reduce the signs of age and sun damage. Because the production of collagen and elastin continues, so does your rejuvenated appearance!
Following treatment, the skin may appear red, almost as though it has been scraped slightly. This can be easily concealed in most cases and it usually subsides over just a few days. As the skin continues to heal after treatment, it is important to cleanse and moisturize as directed by Dr. Lombardi. Sun protection is also necessary.
Collagen is a necessary substance for skin to remain supple, taut, and youthful. If you are noticing the signs of depleted collagen, microneedling is the gentle, effective method you may have been searching for. See how we can use microneedling to restore optimal beauty to your skin.
