The effects of aging on the skin can be seen as a combination of problems. Blemishes become more apparent, wrinkles deepen, and regions of uneven pigmentation or dullness begin to show. All of these problems can be addressed via professional skin rejuvenation treatment, and one of the most effective of these treatments is microneedling, which we are happy to now offer at our office.
The idea here is to let the body heal and repair itself via the creation of new, healthier skin tissue. The creation of tiny micro-channels in the skin actually stimulates the production of new dermal layers as well as the production of collagen. The result is smoother skin and less prominent signs of aging and sun damage.
Typical Skin Problems
As we age and mature, our skin contains less collagen than it did when we were teens. This means more prominent wrinkling because the skin is less supple. At the same time, environmental factors such as overexposure to the sun’s rays can darken certain areas that are already hyperpigmented. This is why blemishes become darker or redder. Most blemishes are composed of damaged cells that keep on reproducing themselves without improvement.
Dull, brittle skin can make us look old and unhealthy. Skin brittleness is also a sign of reduced amounts of moisture in the epidermis and dermis. Microneedling can help because the new skin produced via the creation of micro-channels is healthier and can hold an adequate amount of moisture.
Performing the Procedure
The first step is a consultation at our office. We will consult with you so that we can examine your skin up close. We note the thickness of the skin and the size and depth of any blemishes. We may schedule a series of microneedling for the best results. During the actual treatment, a special device is moved across the skin, creating many micro openings in the skin.
In the weeks and months following the treatment, collagen production will increase dramatically, and this will eventually result in smoother, better-looking skin. At the same time, blemishes will continue to fade from view as most of the damaged cells have been replaced with healthier tissue.
