Micro Needling – How It Works
During Micro Needling, we’ll use a medical pen-like tool to create controlled and minimal injury to areas of your skin that need improvement. This treatment helps patients reduce and treat acne scars, fine lines, and leads to a better overall skin appearance.
As each miniscule needle enters the skin, micro-wounds are created. These tiny wounds signal your body to fill them in as part of the natural healing process. As this occurs, new elastin and collagen are created. These help reduce signs of aging and lead to a more youthful look with fewer wrinkles.
Micro Needling treatment can often be combined with gels or creams that will improve your look even further. It can also be used as a mechanism to deliver your own growth factors directly into your skin with the use of PRP.
If reducing your wrinkles and scars has been a losing battle, or if you want to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, Micro Needling treatments may be the technique that helps you achieve the results you’ve been seeking.
Because Micro Needling promotes increased elastin and collagen production, you’ll soon notice that scars and wrinkles that have been a source of concern will no longer be an issue. That’s because as skin thickens thanks to extra collagen, your face will gain that smoother complexion you’ve been looking for. Continued treatments should help ensure results last.
And Micro Needling is convenient. The procedure can be performed at Rogue Valley OMS. There’s no need for a hospital stay or long recovery time.
Micro Needling is a less expensive anti-aging option than more invasive procedures. And it can tackle skin problems that peels cannot.
Dr. Doherty and our team customize treatments for each patient, and we have topical anesthetics that make Micro Needling just about painless.
How many treatment sessions are needed varies depending on the patient and his or her aesthetic goals. They are generally spaced apart by about four to six weeks.
The passage of time doesn’t have to mean wrinkles and lines will dominate your skin. For younger-looking and revitalized skin, Micro Needling could be the treatment for you.
