Over time, your skin will go through many changes both internally and externally — sun damage, diminished collagen production, skin laxity, possible cuts that result in scarring, pollutants and dirt causing enlarged pores, possible acne scarring, and more. Although many creams or regimens exist on the market today, most merely target the surface of the skin as opposed to the root of the issue beneath the skin in the epidermis and dermis. Microneedling works deep within the skin to stimulate new collagen to naturally improve the skin’s surface at the source.
Today, many board-certified surgeons look to microneedling to treat fine lines, enlarged pores, scarring, uneven skin texture or tone, and wrinkles. This treatment can rejuvenate the skin by stimulating new collagen production and elastin for healthier looking skin.
Microneedling uses a device to penetrate the skin below the surface to create small channels for a process called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). This process allows for your skin to naturally improve without invasive procedures. In some cases, candidates for micro-needling choose to undergo platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to separate the plasma from your blood and promote new cell growth. The combination allows for new collagen production and regenerates tissues.
