Micro-needling is a skin rejuvenation procedure that offers a number of benefits. Known in medical circles as “percutaneous collagen induction,” this cosmetic treatment not only improves the look of your skin, but it helps you to achieve healthier skin as well. The procedure involves an acupuncture-like treatment in which a hand-held device is used to induce tiny punctures into the skin. This process begins a healing process that boosts collagen production and results in smoother, younger-looking skin. Adoro Medical Spa offers this simple yet effective treatment to residents of Annapolis, Severna Park, and Columbia, MD.
Immediate Improvement in Skin Texture
Micro-needling takes about an hour per session. There will be some tiny marks left from the needles, along with some redness. Immediately following the treatment your skin will likely be smoother and brighter. Your results will only get better as the healing process unfolds and the collagen is produced.
Reduction of Scars
Minor scarring such as acne scars can be smoothed with micro-needling. It works because micro-needling punctures into the surface of the skin in order to break up some of the tension known as “fibrosis” that holds scars in place. When that happens, the surface skin is able to relax, leading to a smoother appearance.
Fewer Fine Lines and Wrinkles
One of the best benefits of micro-needling is that it can help you to look younger. The tiny punctures caused in the skin through the process of micro-needling releases growth factors that repair and heal your skin. It’s this healing process that also amps up the production of collagen and elastin. These are natural substances our body produces that are lost with age. They help provide volume and elasticity to your skin. All of this results in younger, plumper, firming-looking skin.
Micro-needling can even your skin tone and reduce hyperpigmentation, or patches of darkened skin. These dark marks can occur for a variety of reasons, such as changes in the skin due to damage caused by acne, inflammation or sun damage.
These are a few of the major benefits of micro-needling. This innovative treatment can help you to look younger and result in overall better skin health. Contact Adoro Medical Spa today to schedule your consultation!
