Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that creates microchannels which are then filled with fluid and nutrients. The skin will produce new collagen and elastin, and new capillaries will form. After several treatment sessions, the skin becomes clearer, more supple, and with less visible discolored regions.
Here in San Diego, our clients choose microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, to improve various skin problems. Read on to see if you’re a suitable candidate for this popular skin rejuvenation treatment.
What Microneedling Can Help With
The most common problems our clients bring to us include wrinkled facial skin, a brittle skin surface, and small areas of hyperpigmentation. We often suggest microneedling as a suitable treatment because it doesn’t involve surgery or the introduction of harsh chemicals, and it also doesn’t require any recovery period.
Microneedling can improve such conditions as acne scarring and age spots. It helps to reduce the size of skin pores, and it revitalizes the skin through the eventual creation of additional blood capillaries that feed the skin layers.
How It’s Performed
We will discuss the various instruments used in microneedling when we consult with the client. We’ll also give some instructions on how to prepare the skin for the procedure.
Handheld devices are used to perform this procedure.
The tiny microchannels created during treatment fill with body fluids and nutrients. They heal very quickly, and the body begins to produce collagen at an accelerated rate.
Gentler Than Other Treatment Options
Microneedling is a simple procedure that can be performed in the comfort of our office in San Diego, and it’s perfect for those who have a busy schedule. It’s gentler on the skin than chemical peels or dermabrasion. Most importantly, it’s typically suitable for all skin tones.
