Microneedling Aesthetic Treatments for Skin Health
Microneedling may sound a bit imposing to some people, especially those with an innate fear of needles. But this aesthetic treatment uses tiny microneedles that lightly prick the skin and is considered minimally invasive. Spectrum Dermatology of Atlanta offers microneedling aesthetic treatments for skin health at our medical and aesthetics clinic in Alpharetta.
In a microneedling treatment, you lie comfortably while the aesthetician uses a special device filled with tiny microneedles to very gently prick your skin. The device is usually rolled over the different areas of the face two or three times. A numbing agent is applied before treatment begins for your comfort. These tiny micro-wounds to your skin trigger your body’s natural healing mechanism.
The body jump-starts additional collagen production and rushes this and other healing factors to your face to speed healing. This process produces new, healthier, and smoother skin to replace the damaged skin from the microneedling treatment. Results can take about four to six weeks to be complete, but the collagen production aids in lasting results.
Advanced Collagen Induction Therapy
Microneedling is sometimes called collagen induction therapy because that is its primary purpose. The tiny wounds cause more collagen production, which improves the health and appearance of your skin. This therapy is sometimes combined with platelet-rich plasma for additional healing power and even better results.
Schedule an aesthetic consultation at Spectrum Dermatology of Atlanta, and talk with your practitioner about your skin needs and concerns. Be sure to ask about microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, for improved skin health and appearance.
