How Microneedling Can Reduce Fine Lines

The body can produce healthier skin as a response to controlled injury. This sounds a bit weird, but it’s actually a natural process. When small wounds affect skin tissue, the body sends nutrients to the affected area. Dark areas of skin become more even in tone when the new skin develops. Fine wrinkles disappear because the new skin layer is full of collagen. Microneedling is a proven method for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, especially on the thin skin around the corners of the mouth and near the eyes. When it is used in conjunction with our Stem Cell Collagen Induction Facial, which utilizes plant-derived stem cells, it can produce some incredible results.

Microneedling is a specialized treatment and should not be performed at home. Our experienced skin specialist can quickly determine the extent of the problem and schedule the appropriate treatment regimen. We encourage you to learn more about how microneedling and our Stem Cell Collagen Induction Facial can help eliminate fine wrinkles and other visual signs of aging.

What Microneedling Does

Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that involves the creation of controlled channel wounds. These tiny openings in the skin quickly fill up with blood, lymphatic fluid and nutrients. The adjacent tissue, unaffected by the needles, acts as a blueprint for the formation of newer, healthier skin growth. The plant-derived stem cells encourage addition growth as well.

The body’s natural response to this process includes a kickstarting of collagen production. Long after the channel wounds have healed, the process of collagen buildup continues. The skin becomes smoother and more evenly toned in the months that follow a microneedling treatment.

How We Perform Microneedling

This is an outpatient procedure that is performed in the comfort of our office. We will wash the client’s face thoroughly before the treatment. The skin may appear red for a short time after treatment, but virtually no downtime is required. Most all normal activities can be resumed at once.

We will likely schedule a series of treatment sessions that are spaced a set amount of time apart for the best results. You will get to enjoy the full results of your treatment as the skin becomes much more smooth because of the increased amount of collagen present.
