Microneedling Therapy is the latest breakthrough for finally getting rid of those embarrassing scars, stretch marks, and unsightly wrinkles.
If this sounds like something you’d love to have done, read on.
Dr. Tahsini from Skinworks Medical Spa Torrance, California, explains what is micro-needling treatment and how it helps prevent skin aging, revive skin health and reveal beautiful, glowing skin.
What is micro-needling?
Micro-needling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive procedure using a device with small needles is pushed or rolled over your face and neck area to create controlled punctures, which force your skin into repair mode.
Hundreds of tiny pinpricks going into your skin might sound like a torture, right?
Dr. Tahsini from Skinworks Medical Spa Torrance, assures you that this minimally invasive treatment is virtually painless and incredibly effective.
“The microneedle length is incredibly tiny compared to a traditional needle, and these devices are gentle enough to be used around the delicate eye area. The micro-injuries it creates stimulates the skin’s repair process to naturally create collagen and elastin. This in return, reverses as well as prevents signs of aging, and reduces acne scars and stretch marks.”– says board-certified Medical Director in Aesthetic Medicine, Dr. Tahsini.
What are the benefits of micro-needling?
Microneedling reduces fine and deep wrinkles
Believe it or not, micro-needling has become hugely popular among skincare fanatics—Vogue is calling it the next big thing in anti-aging.
The primary appeal of this treatment is its ability to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin, which is the key to youthful-looking, glowing skin. With its ability to trigger the generation of new skin cells, just a few sessions of micro-needling will noticeably reduce fine lines, crow’s feet, and deep wrinkles on the forehead. Dr. Tahsini from Skin Works Medical Spa, Torrance, shares that there’s a minimal downtime with this treatment, and recommends it as a maintenance for people who are trying to prevent the signs of aging.
Microneedling repairs visible scars
In a 2009 study on the effects of micro-needling, nearly 100 percent of acne-scarred participants reported a marked improvement in the visibility of their acne scars. Whether you have acne scars, scars from surgery, or scars from just living life, micro-needling can help to fade them away. By stimulating the collagen and elastin production of the scar tissue, you will see the scar fade as the tissue is broken down.
Microneedling reverses sun damage and pigmentation
Once again, collagen is arguably the most vital way to improve the look of skin, and this goes far beyond reducing wrinkles. By stimulating collagen growth with micro-needling, you can also reverse sun damage and discoloration, including the hyperpigmentation that comes with melasma.
