Anti-Aging with Micro-Needling

Anti-Aging with Micro-Needling Procedure

Micro-needling is a minimally-invasive procedure that is especially effective in treating acne scars and wrinkles. The device used in this procedure includes a cartridge that holds a cluster of micro-needles. The needles are used to rejuvenate the skin by slightly puncturing it to stimulate skin growth and repair. When the skin is punctured by the micro-needles, the body produces new collagen to fill the tiny wounds, which will ideally improve the feel, texture, and elasticity of the skin.

Benefits of Micro-Needling

Micro-needling is a procedure that is relatively painless and requires minimal healing time. Following a micro-needling procedure in a medical spa, patients may notice the following benefits:

  • Improved acne scars
  • Improved appearance of wrinkles
  • Improved sunken areas on skin
  • Smooth skin
  • Decreased pore size
  • Minimized stretch marks

Patients sometimes experience mild redness which usually subsides in a few hours following the treatment. Depending on the scarring or damage you are looking to correct, multiple treatments may be required to achieve your desired results.
