Microneedling is fast becoming a very popular and effective skin treatment. Celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Naomi Watts are singing the praises of this almost painless, chemical-free treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. The procedure may also have a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks while also creating a fresher appearance or glow to the skin. Why We Love Microneedling
The procedure consists of a small pen-like device filled with lots of little needles that punctures the skin as it moves across the area being treated. This instigates one’s natural production of collagen and elastic in a single motion. Some have compared the sensation to sandpaper being lightly pulled across the face. Together with hydrating gel, this treatment provides almost instant improvement with very little downtime.
This minimally invasive procedure isn’t restricted to the face. Microneedling can be done on all parts of the body including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
There is another exciting type of microneedling that simultaneously injects some of one’s own blood into the skin while puncturing. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) aids in blood clotting, adding an increase in collagen and new blood flow.
These innovative new procedures are taking the aesthetic world by storm. You can watch a video and can learn more on our website: www.CenterPlasticSurg.com/Skin-Care-Treatments/#Microneedling
