Microneedling

What skin problems does microneedling does correct?

 

  • Loose, crepey, wrinkly skin
  • Skin tone and texture problems
  • Sun damage, pigmentation problems
  • Vessels, rosacea, redness
  • Large pores
  • Acne scars

 

What are the advantages of microneedling over lasers, peels and dermabrasion for skin rejuvenation?

 

The beauty of microneedling is that it stimulates our body’s own healing process. This allows the imperfections in our skin to be corrected naturally.  Microneedling (especially when combined with radiofrequency energy) is the latest in powerful yet gentle technology for facial rejuvenation. 

 

Older treatments like lasers, peels and dermabrasion are based on partial removal, or ablation, of the top layer of the skin. Partial removal of the skin’s surface triggers the growth of new skin which replaces scarred and aged tissue. 

 

These treatments however, cause significant inflammation and risk injury to the deeper layers of the skin which causes scarring, increased sensitivity to light and irregular pigmentation.

 

Microneedling (unlike lasers, peels and dermabrasion) triggers the formation of new collagen in our skin (dermal neocollagenesis) without side effects or extended downtime.  Microneedling also fully preserves our skin’s superficial structures (the stratum corneum and the epidermis). The preservation of these structures keeps the barrier function of our skin intact. 

 

How does microneedling work to rejuvenate my skin?

 

In microneedling, each small “micro” needle penetrates the skin in a purely mechanical way, and creates a tiny, or “micro” injury. Though there is barely any injury at all, the skin still receives the signal that an injury has occurred. This signal turns on the skin’s natural healing process.  One of the main ways the skin heals is by increased collagen production. The increased collagen improves the tone and texture of our skin and smooths out many of the fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps fill in the imperfections of acne scars and large pores. Because microneedling keeps the superficial layers of the skin intact, the wound healing process is scarless and the natural barrier function of the skin is preserved (unlike with lasers and aggressive peels). The wound healing from microneedling is scarless because there is little to no inflammation (inflammation leads to scar formation). So, overall, microneedling triggers your skin to heal and repair itself without causing any inflammatory, scarring damage to your skin at the same time.

 

The advantage of avoiding the risks of pigmentation changes or scarring when compared to laser resurfacing and peelings makes microneedling the best therapeutic choice for facial rejuvenation.

 

What are the results of microneedling?

 

The result is smoother, tighter, firmer skin. 

 

Where can microneedling be used?

While most commonly used on the face, Microneedling can also be used to restore and regenerate the skin on the neck, chest, back and hands. 

 

What concerns you the most about your skin?

 

If wrinkles and loose skin are significant areas of concern for you, give serious consideration to microneedling with radiofrequency energy. This is the most powerful, effective and yet gentle technology currently available to correct the problems listed above – particularly if wrinkles and loose skin are your main concerns. The most severely affected skin is certainly most improved by the use of this technology.

If you struggle with many of the issues above, but wrinkles (especially deep wrinkles and loose skin) are not your main concerns, the next most effective microneedling treatment is microneedling with platelet rich plasma (similar to the “vampire facial”).  Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is used to enhance the mechanism of new collagen production.  Microneedling delivers extra growth factors from platelets directly into your skin through the holes made by the tiny needles.

If you want to improve your overall skin tone, texture, pore size and /or clear up acne scars, microneedling alone is also a very effective treatment for these issues.

Can microneedling be used in combination with other treatments?

Absolutely YES. In fact, the combination of microneedling with other treatments will maximally restore and rejuvenate your skin. Combining microneedling with photofacial treatments, Botox and soft tissue fillers can certainly create a real “WOW” effect on your face.  Microneedling can also be combined with other treatments like hydrafacial and dermaplaning to smooth and improve the tone and texture of your skin. 

Our team members at Shea will help you know what combination of treatments will give you the best result.  Combining treatments, in addition to the use of excellent skin care products at home, will create and maintain dramatic improvements in the healthy and youthful appearance of your skin.
