Skin rejuvenation via controlled channel wound creation is becoming more and more popular. Microneedling is a procedure that stimulates the body to accelerate the production of healthy skin tissue. Unlike chemical peels, dermabrasion, and light energy therapy, microneedling allows the body to do what it does naturally, and that is to replace damaged cells with new ones.
Also known as skin needling or collagen induction therapy, microneedling stimulates the production of collagen and beginning a process that results in healthier skin layers. The result is glowing, firm skin that is even in tone and texture. Our Tampa clients are thrilled with the results of microneedling and love the fact that the procedure is so simple to perform.
Stimulating Healthy Skin Growth
Mature adults begin to notice that the facial skin is becoming brittle in texture, is showing numerous fine lines and crow’s feet, and is marked with localized discolorations. These areas are often injury or acne scars, age spots, and darkened freckles. Microneedling can improve the appearances of these discolorations as well as smooth the skin surface.
The secret is how the body responds to injury. The controlled channel wounds created through the microneedling process are very tiny and will not result in permanent scarring. Instead, the body responds to the injuries by kickstarting a healing process. The dermal layers will become stronger and firmer as collagen production increases. The skin will have regenerated itself completely, and the healthy new tissue means healthier skin.
We use a roller instrument to create channel wounds over a large area of the face. Smaller areas that are difficult to reach with the roller can be treated with a smaller, handheld pen-style device. This is a non-surgical, minimally invasive, outpatient procedure.
Collagen induction therapy produces smoother, more youthful-appearing skin. The surface of the skin is more even in tone, and fine wrinkles are far less noticeable. Most of our Tampa clients choose to schedule periodic maintenance treatments after the initial series.
Without the need for skin ablation, the introduction of harsh chemicals, or abrasive resurfacing, the facial skin can become firmer, more supple, and youthful-appearing.
