You may have heard of microneedling, a minimally-invasive procedure that promotes collagen production. Yes, there’s nothing quite like the benefits of an increase in the amount of collagen in the skin. The dermal layers become more supple and taut, and this really improves your overall appearance. However, microneedling can help reverse other signs of aging as well. Our New York clients soon discover the unexpected benefits of the treatment, many of which become more and more apparent in the months following the treatment.

You may also be wary of any sort of minimally-invasive treatment. The name itself does indeed sound a bit frightening. We’re here to assure you that microneedling is a safe, easy-to-undergo treatment that doesn’t involve skin ablation or repositioning, and it’s also less invasive than many other types of skin rejuvenation.

Creating Channels

We use a special device to perform microneedling in New York. We choose the needle length based on our examination of your skin, specifically the thickness of the dermal layers in the areas to be treated. We move the device over the treatment area, creating many tiny micro-channels in the process.

The creation of the channels is the key to microneedling. Each one of these channels, spaced apart by several millimeters, quickly fills with lymphatic fluid, nutrients, and liquid scar tissue. Soon, the area is full of primary cells, and these eventually divide into populations of permanent skin cells. The idea here is that these replacement cells are healthier than the surrounding tissue.

What Happens Next?

It is what happens over the following months that amazes our New York clients. The primary benefit is an increase in collagen production. This collagen remodeling results in skin that is smoother, more supple, and far more taut.

The newly created skin tissue is healthier than what it replaces. Blemishes such as injury or acne scars, age spots, and enlarged pores are now far less visible. Skin aging on the cheeks or near the jawline is reduced because of the increase in important proteins in the skin layers. Structurally, the skin is far more youthful. The overall surface contours are now more pleasing in appearance.

Reverse Signs of Aging with Microneedling

This is a simple, effective way to reverse various visual signs of aging on the face and elsewhere. Letting the body heal itself is always a good choice. All your body really needs is a kickstart, and that’s what microneedling provides.

Unfortunately, for many people, skin issues don’t go away once you enter your twenties. In fact, as time passes, more and more blemishes will creep up on your skin due to things like aging, previous cases of acne, and sun damage. Every man and woman wants to have attractive skin, and little blemishes like wrinkles and scarring are definitely not a part of the picture. An innovative procedure known as microneedling might be just what you need to get the skin you desire.

Microneedling to Reduce Blemishes

Microneedling is one of the latest procedures to help improve the appearance of the skin. It not only reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles, but it can also help improve other skin issues such as scars.

Microneedling is making big waves in the skincare world. It is a procedure that has been used for decades. This procedure requires a small pen that has tiny micro-needles on it. As the pen moves over the surface of the skin, the tiny needles will create micro-channels in the epidermis. The epidermis is the first layer of skin. This encourages the skin to increase its collagen production, creating a smoother and younger-looking surface. This happens because, throughout the healing process, the skin remodels the collagen to create healthier-looking skin.

Many people choose this procedure because it is a better option than many other alternatives. It is less harsh on the skin and does not require as much recovery time.

Microneedling can help reduce scarring and pockmarks caused by any previous and stubborn acne. The pen reduces acne scars because it breaks up the fibrosis beneath the skin that causes scarring. When the microneedle moves over the skin, it is able to break up the fibrosis and release the surface of the skin, providing a smoother surface and improved appearance.
