How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling creates small channels into the surface of your skin. This micro-damage triggers both immediate and long-term remodeling and renewal. At Rejuve Med Spa, we use the SkinPen®, an FDA-cleared microneedling device that allows extreme precision and customization.
Immediately after microneedling, your body will respond to the micro-damage as skin cells around the area send out healing and growth signals. These bring increased blood flow and promote rapid healing of the skin channels. As new skin cells form to begin repairs, the rate of skin turnover increases and skin looks brighter and more youthful.
Although the process takes several weeks, the skin cells also initiate collagen production. The skin loses collagen as we age, and as a result, it loses firmness, fullness, and vibrance. The remodeling of new collagen brings about the most long-lasting and visible changes after treatment.
What are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Because microneedling increases cell turnover and builds collagen, it can improve surface issues and deeper ones other treatments have trouble reaching. The concerns microneedling can treat include:
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Skin laxity
- Acne scarring
- Stretch marks
- Enlarged pores
- Lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
Most skin over a certain age has begun accumulating these types of skin concerns. Microneedling can address all of them with one treatment that gives you lasting results.
