As people get older, they can begin to develop wrinkles and fine lines while simultaneously losing youthful definition and fullness in various areas of their body. Many of these changes can be attributed to a decline in the amount and strength of collagen present in the skin. With micro-needling, patients can build a stronger and healthier collagen framework that provides long-lasting and youthful-looking support to the skin.
Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center is proud to provide patients in the Windermere, Bay Hill, Gotha, and Dr. Phillips areas of Florida with a broad selection of high-quality skin care treatments. If you’d like more information about any of the services we offer or are interested in scheduling a consultation appointment, contact us today!
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling is one of the most effective ways for patients to improve the texture, tone, and tightness of their skin without the need for injections, chemicals, or extensive downtime. This procedure can be used to address:
- Skin laxity
- Stretch marks
How Can Micro-Needling Rejuvenate Aging Skin?
During a micro-needling treatment, a series of ultra-thin needles are passed over the surface of the skin. These needles create small micro injuries on the skin’s surface that are large enough to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, but small enough not to cause any significant harm to the patient.
The healing process that these micro injuries trigger is responsible for the broad range of benefits seen from micro-needling procedures. Blood circulation to the treatment area increases, stimulating the flow of healing nutrients and growth factors to the skin’s cells. Collagen fibers also begin to coagulate, triggering the creation of newer, stronger structural proteins.
Am I a Candidate for a Micro-Needling Treatment?
Nearly anyone interested in stimulating the renewal and regeneration of their skin is a potential candidate for a micro-needling procedure. However, in order for patients to assure that micro-needling is safe for them and can help them meet their cosmetic goals, they must first schedule a consultation appointment with a medical professional.
Micro-needling is an excellent treatment option for patients who are interested in improving the appearance of their skin. If you’re a patient that lives near the Windermere, Bay Hill, Gotha, or Dr. Phillips areas of Florida and are interested in learning more about this exciting treatment, don’t settle for less than a high-quality practice.
