Scars and stretch marks are two of the most common skin conditions that prompt a visit to the dermatologist. Scars can be caused by anything from acne to surgery to trauma, while stretch marks are usually the result of rapid weight fluctuations like those caused by pregnancies. Whatever the cause, these common skin problems can cause a loss of self-confidence. Fortunately, a non-surgical treatment method called micro needling can safely and effectively help minimize scars and stretch marks.
What Is Micro Needling?
Micro needling is growing in popularity due to its ability to help resurface the skin in a very safe and natural way that works with your body and its innate healing abilities. The treatment takes advantage of the fact that creating micro-channels prompts the replacement of skin with fresher skin tissue displaying fewer imperfections. .
When Will I Notice Results?
The results of needling are gradual and subtle at first. We are working with your body’s healing abilities to create new skin tissue that develops over the weeks and months after your treatment. Most patients notice some initial results in a week or two after their treatment. Your results should continue to build in the following months. If you need more improvement, you can always schedule additional micro needling treatment sessions, as each treatment builds upon the results of prior needling sessions.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The overwhelming majority of individuals make suitable patients for micro needling. You just need to make sure that you are not dealing with any active skin breakouts or infections. If you are, you will need to resolve these conditions prior to undergoing a needling session.
