If you are looking for a minimally invasive way to improve the appearance of your skin, whether your skin is beginning to look aged or you have scars or discolorations that you want to treat, microneedling could be a great choice for you. Microneedling uses tiny needles to create microscopic injuries in your skin. While this may sound counterintuitive initially, it actually stimulates the body’s natural healing process, which will create healthier and more youthful skin.
At Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center in Orlando, we use the SkinPen for our microneedling treatments. While there are many different devices on the market today, we use this option because of its unparalleled success in collagen induction therapy. Although this treatment does not produce such impressive changes as a more invasive treatment would, it can create small changes over time to give you a naturally youthful look with continued treatments. Therefore, it is great for individuals wanting to make small changes in their skin but who do not want a surgical treatment with incisions, scars and recovery time.
Microneedling produces changes in an amazing way. When the sterile needle cartridge of the SkinPen passes over your skin, the tiny needles create little holes or micro-channels in your skin that you cannot see with the naked eye. Your body instantly goes to work to heal these injuries, rushing blood and nutrients to the area to fight infection, produce new cell growth and improve the health of the cells that are already in the area. As new skin cells grow, you will notice your skin glowing with a freshness that you may have thought was long gone. Additionally, the SkinPen stimulates an increase in collagen beneath the surface of the skin, which makes the skin look plumper and gives it a better texture. These two occurrences are what makes this treatment so beneficial. Whatever your skin complaint is, this treatment can be a great option for renewing your skin.
Although microneedling is most frequently used in Orlando for decreasing the appearance of lines and wrinkles through the increase of collagen beneath the surface of the skin, it can also be used to decrease discoloration caused by the sun or hormonal fluctuations. Through repeated treatments, the top layers of the hyperpigmented areas will slough away, eventually causing the spot to fade. In addition, microneedling can help to regulate the pigment-producing cells in the skin, known as melanocytes. Finally, microneedling is also frequently used to decrease the look of pockmarks and scars on the skin. Once again, as collagen builds up in the area, the scars will fill in with new tissue and will leave the skin’s surface more smooth.
Microneedling is an easy answer to many of your most important skin complaints. It can help you look more youthful while helping you maintain a natural look. Our SkinPen is an easy, comfortable device that can be used for quick treatments with little-to-no downtime right here at Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center in Orlando.
