What is Microneedling?
Microneedling involves the use of tiny needles to create microscopic wounds in a regular pattern on the skin. These needles are so fine that there is no pain involved, although, a topical numbing cream can be applied beforehand to ensure maximum comfort. The channels created by the needles stimulate collagen production to promote faster healing, firm and plump the skin, smooth wrinkles and scars, and brighten and even skin tone and texture. They also allow for topical solutions to better penetrate the skin and work more effectively. These topical solutions are custom-selected based on what skin care issues the patient has, and work very well when they can sink deep into the skin and go to work on the dermis as well as the epidermis.
Microneedling can be done on almost any area of the body, not just the face. It can be used to erase dark spots on the chest, reduce the appearance of stretch marks on the stomach, and more. Talk to your dermatologist to find out if microneedling can help with your skin concerns!
Microneedling with PRP
PRP, which stands for platelet-rich plasma, has recently been gaining popularity as a means of quickly and efficiently promoting collagen production and renewing the skin. PRP is a special substance formed out of the patient’s own blood, so it is hypoallergenic and completely safe. We separate the platelet-rich plasma from the blood, where it forms a gel that can be used along with microneedling for extremely effective results.
MicroPen TR for Tattoo Removal
Many people have tattoos that they regret or need to get rid of for professional purposes. For a long time, lasers were considered the best way to get rid of a tattoo, but recently it has been discovered that microneedling can do the trick just as well. Microneedling actually takes the ink out of the skin, as opposed to lasers, which break it up into microscopic particles which are then absorbed by the body. Although there have been no studies showing that these particles are harmful to the body, many people prefer to have microneedling done, as the ink physically leaves the body rather than being absorbed by it.
