That is why we offer medical needling treatment for those who have different types of scars or other skin blemishes they are self-conscious about and that run too deep to be treated effectively by cosmetic needling. Explore the benefits of this non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment method during a consultation with our team to discuss your skincare goals!
What Is Medical Needling Treatment?
Medical needling treatment is a type of micro-needling that differs from cosmetic needling in that it is able to reach to reach the dermis rather than the epidermis and upper dermis. It does this with a device which creates many microchannels on the skin. It stimulates the growth of collagen, treats acne scars and other types of scarring, and can also be used to treat sun-damaged skin, stretch marks, and improve the texture and tone of your skin. It is most commonly used to treat:
- Uneven skin tone
- Reduced skin elasticity
- Age and sun spots
- Large pores
- Stretch marks
- Scars caused by wounds
This is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment method, and there is no set downtime associated with this procedure. You should be able to resume normal daily activities following a treatment session.
Am I A Good Candidate?
You may be a good candidate for medical needling treatment if you wish to improve the appearance of your skin and a consultation with our team has determined cosmetic needling treatment will be inadequate. Good candidates for this treatment wish to:
- Eliminate burn, acne, surgical, or other scars
- Reduce the size of their pores
- Minimize wrinkles
- Firm, smooth, and tone their skin
Most healthy adults who are frustrated with their skin but are free from skin infections may be able to benefit from this treatment option.
What Else Should I Know?
Results may typically be seen in as quickly as a couple of weeks. However, it takes time for your body to produce new collagen, so while your skin tone and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles may be improved rapidly, if you are trying to treat stretch marks it will take time for your body show results.
You may need follow-up treatments to maintain your new appearance if you seek treatment for wrinkles. Complementary treatments may also be recommended to achieve the best possible results.
