What is microneedle therapy?
Microneedle therapy, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic skin treatment that can help reduce the appearance of a number of skin concerns. The procedure involves making a series of small punctures in the skin with tiny, sterile microneedles, which stimulate the body’s production of new collagen. Following microneedling, most patients see an improvement in the tone and texture of their skin.
Why is microneedle therapy used?
Microneedling may be used to help improve the following skin conditions:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Scars (due to acne, chicken pox, injury, or surgery)
- Dull skin color
- Naso-labial folds
What does microneedling treatment involve?
Microneedle treatment should be performed by a trained dermatologist or medical esthetician. Consult with your doctor before undergoing treatment to ensure that you are a good candidate for microneedle therapy. During the treatment, your dermatologist will apply a local anesthetic to the treatment area to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. You should feel minimal or no pain during the procedure, and most describe it as a small pricking or burning sensation.
After the procedure, your skin will begin healing and producing a younger, more even look. Speak with your dermatologist at Hollywood Dermatology to learn more about what to expect for your personal skin type and condition.
