Scar Revision Options: What About Microneedling?

Giving the body a chance to heal itself is what microneedling is all about. When tiny micro-channels are created in the skin, the resulting channels fill with blood, nutrients, and new tissue. The resulting new tissue is healthier than what it replaces, and the capillaries now carry more blood into the skin layers. This means better overall skin tone. After a series of treatments, the results can be quite dramatic. To learn more about microneedling, contact our office and book a consultation.

How Microneedling Works

During this treatment, many tiny micro-openings are made in the skin. The tiny channels act as a sort of kickstart mechanism. The body sends additional nutrients to the sites. Collagen production increases after a series of treatment sessions. Eventually, after multiple treatments, the skin is clearer in tone, and it’s also more supple. Blemishes, acne scars, and other discolorations are less noticeable because some of the tissue that makes up these darkened areas has been replaced with healthier growth.

Healthier Skin is Key

Some creams or other treatments can be somewhat effective when it comes to shading over or hiding unwanted skin tone problems. However, the microneedling procedure addresses the more important problem, and that is one involving skin texture and unwanted wrinkling. Age-related wrinkling is caused by a decrease in the amount of moisture the skin can hold, a decrease in the amount of collagen in the skin, and less support from the subcutaneous layers. Properly performed, microneedling can yield positive results that last for quite a while, and the treatment is repeatable at regular intervals.
