For patients concerned with signs of aging, microneedling is a treatment option for wrinkles.

Microneedling treatments

Also known as skin needling or collagen induction therapy, microneedling has technically been around for decades. It has been used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks. Advancements in medical technology have improved the procedure making it gentler, painless, and more effective.

This procedure uses a single cartridge with several sterile, fine tip needles. The cartridge is attached to a motorized pen that can be controlled for the speed and depth. The treatment can be customized for each patient. When the needles pierce the skin, collagen and elastin are triggered as the skin heals itself.

Benefits of microneedling

In piercing the skin, microneedling creates trauma to the upper layer of the dermis. As the body heals, the building blocks of the skin are prompted for natural healing and a more youthful appearance. Advantages of this procedure include:

  • Instead of forming a linear scar-like pattern during healing, the collagen produced forms a natural basketweave pattern so the skin appears smooth.
  • The quality of the skin is improved. Microneedling therapy treats fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin tone and texture, tightens lax skin, and betters the appearance of scars.
  • Because the epidermis is left intact, patients need less downtime, have faster healing, and suffer from less side effects.
  • Skin improvement is noticeable after one treatment but optimal results are seen after a series of treatments.
