Our patients in Maryland are discovering for themselves what a relatively new skin rejuvenation treatment called micro-needling can do for problem skin. This innovative treatment allows you to reduce signs of aging and sun damage without the need for surgery. Although surgical techniques are certainly quite effective, they are not always needed, particularly in cases of mild to moderate wrinkles or sun damage.
Medically known as collagen induction therapy, micro-needling involves fostering the development of new skin tissue exhibiting fewer imperfections. We begin the treatment session by moving a small handheld device over your skin to create a multitude of microscopic openings in it. Your skin responds to this minor damage by turning over old skin cells and replacing them with fresh skin tissue that is more youthful and bears fewer blemishes.
How Micro-Needling Works
Needling treatments in Maryland work on the principle that certain growth factors are released by the body when the skin is damaged to a certain degree. Although most of the tiny channels will be invisible to the naked eye, this is still enough to trigger a healing cascade for the treatment of a wide range of skin conditions. Most of the repair process performed by the body after a micro-needling treatment involves laying down fresh collagen fibers to replace old damaged skin tissue.
Micro-needling offers wide-ranging benefits due to its ability to remodel skin tissue. It is safe and effective for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, light to moderate scars caused by acne and injury, stretch marks, rough skin texture, and pigmentation. The results of your needling treatment will become evident over the following weeks and months. Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the ultimate effect.
Micro-needling works extremely well by itself but can help enhance other treatments like the application of topical skin care products. Many topicals have larger molecular sizes, meaning that the product may be unable to fully penetrate your skin and work its magic. A treatment creates hundreds of microscopic channels in your skin that act as channels to allow these products to flow more easily into the depths of your skin and become much more effective.
