Learn About Micro Needling

July 26, 2017  |   Micro Needling

For many, the thought of a procedure involving needles causes fear and anxiety. However,micro needling is a virtually painless treatment that is both safe and effective. Micro needling is among the most popular skin care treatments available because it is minimally invasive and delivers dramatic results. At Las Colinas Centre for Plastic Surgery, our team of certified aestheticians performs superior micro needling treatments that significantly improve the condition of the skin.

Micro needling is performed through the use of motorized micropen containing 12 tiny needles. By gently pressing on the skin, this micropen creates thousands of micro punctures in the dermis layer of the skin. These micro-punctures cause the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin triggering the body to generate new skin cells. Although this process may sound painful, it is actually painless and safe to administer. Through superior Dallas micro needling treatments, our aesthetic team at Las Colinas Centre for Plastic Surgery has provided successful solution for many.

You Should Consider Micro Needling If…

The best reason to consider microneedling is if there are damaged areas of your skin, anywhere on your body, that you would like to repair. This can include uneven skin tone, acne scars, sun damage, bumps from clogged pores, wrinkles, and stretch marks. The skin’s natural healing process will likely give your skin the collagen it needs to improve it’s damaged condition.

Benefits of Micro Needling

Micro needling treatments can be performed all over your body and have proven effective for creating smoother, firmer skin while simultaneously improving skin health. Through micro needling, your skin will benefit in appearance, texture, tone and color. The greatest benefits acquired through our Dallas micro needling treatments include:

1) Reduce Appearance of Aging

Microneedling is one of the best ways to maintain your skin in order to stave off the effects of aging including fine lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles through the boosted stimulation of both collagen and elastin production. If the sessions are started early enough, it can also help to prevent the growth of new wrinkles and skin lines as well by tightening and smoothing loose skin.

2) Repair of Damaged Skin

Micro needling effectively improves the appearance of scarring from injury, surgery or acne by breaking down old damaged tissue and boosting production of healthier tissue. It is also one of the few effective aesthetic treatments for reducing the appearance of stretch marks.

3) Reverse Sun Damage

For patients with a history of excessive sun exposure, microneedling can also help with the after effects of sun damage. The increased amount of collagen created by the micro-punctures help to ward off the effects of hyper pigmentation that can leave skin discolored and blotchy.

4) Increased Effectiveness of Skin Care Products

Approximately 4-8% of the skin care products used make it through the dermis layer of the skin. Because of the thousands of micro-punctures that micro needling creates, there are more channels for your skin to effectively absorb creams and products allowing them to better perform their intended function.
