Today, there are so many options for caring for your skin that it can be difficult to know which treatment might be the best for you. However, if you do not feel as if your topical treatments are working well for you, you may want to try microneedling treatments. Our microneedling treatments provide numerous short-term and long-term benefits to your skin and the underlying tissues.
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive option that can make your skin look healthier and younger than ever. Although you may have heard about DIY microneedling that you can do at home, this does not bring as many benefits with it as does the professional option because it is simply not as safe and effective. When you come to our office for a microneedling treatment, we will use a special device in order to perform the treatment.
As the microneedling device passes over your skin, it produces tiny channels in your skin. These micro-openings are helpful for several different reasons. First, they create tiny openings in your skin that allow topical products that you use to work better than ever because they are more apt to end up further beneath the skin, where they can produce lasting benefits.
Next, they create small micro-channels in your skin. While this may only show up as a bit of temporary redness visible to the naked eye, the microscopic benefits are massive. Your body responds by rushing blood to the area, which brings with it life-giving and restoring oxygen and other nutrients to the area. This helps the skin cells to renew themselves and increases the amount of collagen produced beneath the skin. As these changes occur, you will gradually notice several changes in your skin.
Microneedling can significantly improve some of the beginning signs of aging. It can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles as new collagen plumps up the surrounding skin and fills in lines. In much the same way, microneedling can be used on many types of scars, including acne scars, to smooth them and help them create new skin cells that will improve your skin’s tone and texture.
No matter what your skin needs are, microneedling could be an amazing option to help you create healthier, younger-looking skin. We encourage you to make an appointment with us at Lincoln Park Aesthetics so that you can experience all of these great benefits for yourself.
