Performed with a small, hand-held tool, micro needling is designed to incite the body’s natural healing process by causing micro-trauma at the surface layers of the skin. This short, in-office procedure is incredibly popular among Tampa residents who are looking for an effective and entirely non-surgical way to reduce the appearance of acne, acne scars, sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and enlarged pores, among other issues. Micro needling promotes both the rapid formation of new skin cells and the increased production of collagen.
As people age, their bodies gradually start producing less and less collagen. This diminishes overall skin support and causes the epidermis to develop a loose and sagging appearance. During micro needling treatments, a special device is used to create many tiny micro-channels in the skin. The body quickly responds by both restructuring its existing collagen and expediting the formation of new collagen and elastin. Over time, these increases cause the skin to become plumper, smoother, and more resilient overall.
Improvements in Skin Quality and Texture
Micro needling does not entail a significant amount of downtime, nor does it cause any serious after-effects. What patients will experience, however, is near-instant improvements in overall skin quality and texture that you want to see. As your body races to repair its protective covering, your complexion will become brighter, more vibrant and significantly more even in tone over time.
Diminished Scars and Pockmarks
Pock marks or pitted acne scars are incredibly difficult to treat. Fortunately, with micro needling, the body is given the basic elements that it needs for filling these shallow areas in on its own. As your collagen and elastin stores increase, these tiny dips and ditches will start to smooth out.
