At Bergman Folkers Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer a selection of treatments to patients who want to rejuvenate and give the look of new life to their skin. With these things in mind, many patients choose micro-needling from our repertoire as an effective and minimally invasive way to achieve their skincare goals.
The process of micro-needling begins with putting a topical anesthetic on the skin to avoid any pain or discomfort that the patient might have otherwise felt during the procedure. Next, a small cartridge with nine small needles, known as the Rejuvapen Automatic Therapy System, is gently applied to the skin to create micro-perforations. The small prick marks made in the outermost epidermal layers of the skin stimulate a natural healing response in the body. This response includes the production collagen and elastin, which fill holes in the skin with tissue while making the skin thicker and more elastic.
Since micro-needling utilizes the body’s own powerful healing process, many underlying skin conditions can be improved simultaneously. Some of the common problems targeted by micro-needling include:
Even better, recovery from a micro-needling procedure is fast. While some redness will naturally occur in the skin after the treatment, this will usually subside within a few of hours. The treatment can also be repeated, in case your desired results aren’t reached the first time.
Whether you have age-related skin damage or simply want healthier and skin, micro-needling can deliver results in a safe and non-invasive fashion.
