Aging, stress, prolonged exposure to the sun and a long list of unavoidable influences can damage your otherwise beautiful skin. These factors can make it harder for your skin to repair and maintain itself, and can lead to congested and dull skin.
While avoiding these things may be difficult, there are non-invasive procedures that can help you rejuvenate your skin. You can reverse visible signs of aging without extensive procedures or downtime with micro-needling.
Micro-needling can treat a number of dermatological conditions from dull skin to light creases and lines without the need for additional procedures. At Skin Spa Medical, we offer safe and effective micro-needling to help refresh and revitalize your skin.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling works by utilizing incredibly fine needles that are attached to the tip of a pen-like device. As the pen is slowly rolled over the skin of treated areas, these needles pass through the upper layers of the skin to interact with the dermis and the hypodermis layers to destroy old cells while clearing the way for new, healthy cells and exfoliated skin.
The treatment primarily utilizes your body’s natural healing factor to rejuvenate your skin. It treats dullness at its source, which gives your skin the boost it needs to turn over dead skin cells and reveal a fresh new layer underneath.
What Can Micro-Needling Treat?
Micro-needling is ideal for treating conditions that originate from the lower layers of the skin. Examples of conditions micro-needling can treat include:
- Dull or flaky skin.
- Pigment issues.
- Light to moderate lines and creases.
Why is Micro-Needling More Effective?
The main strength of micro-needling resides in the way that it interacts with your body. It does not require extra chemicals, radical surgeries, or other treatments that could potentially produce harmful side effects. Micro-needling instead utilizes a very fine and controlled eradication of problematic cells within your skin. These damaged cells are removed as waste by your body so that new cells can take their place.
Is Micro-Needling Safe?
Like most other non-invasive dermatological procedures, micro-needling is incredibly safe when administered by a professional. Our team is highly trained in this procedure, ensuring safe results. The skin may appear slightly red or flushed after treatment, which is common and should subside after a day or so.
