If you’re experiencing age-related skin problems, particularly superficial discolorations and enhanced visual hyperpigmentation on the face, micro-needling may be the most suitable treatment. This procedure is minimally-invasive and doesn’t involve the use of chemicals or potentially damaging energy. Our clients in Oklahoma City are thrilled with the results of micro-needling, and they find it easy to schedule a regular maintenance program to ensure that their facial features remain youthful and healthy in appearance. Here in Edmond, the summer sun can wreak havoc on the facial skin, but much of this damage can be repaired by the body itself. All it needs is a kickstart to begin the rejuvenation process, and that is what micro-needling accomplishes.
A Closer Look at Micro-Needling
Micro-needling is just what the name implies. Tiny channels are created in the skin. When a significant number of these micro-channels are produced over a given area of skin surface, they fill with nutrients, blood, and lymphatic fluid. The surrounding tissue, unaffected by the process, serves as a blueprint for the creation of healthy replacement tissue.
This type of procedure is ideal for correcting superficial wrinkling, darkened areas such as freckles, age spots, and injury scars, and for evening out the overall skin tone. Multiple treatment sessions are typically required. Over the following months, visual improvement in skin tone and texture is realized by the client.
How We Perform Micro-Needling
After we consult with the client, we may schedule a series of treatments at a time that’s convenient. We use a special instrument to perform the treatment in the comfort of our office in Edmond. The body responds to the treatment by rushing nutrients to the affected areas. It doesn’t take long for the production of collagen and elastin to increase, and this will eventually result in a smoother, more taut skin surface.
Blemishes, age spots, and stretch marks will fade over time because some of these tissues are damaged and will be replaced by healthier cells. After a series of treatments, we can schedule a periodic follow-up series of treatments so that the client can maintain a smoother skin surface indefinitely.
Advantages Over Other Treatments
A multitude of skin conditions can be treated by repositioning and stretching out the skin. A facelift is a rather aggressive procedure, however. Many adults aren’t ready for something that involves surgery. On the other hand, micro-needling leaves the epidermis intact, so it’s suitable for a much larger segment of the adult population.
Micro-needling accomplishes two things. It gets rid of discolored regions on the skin surface, and it also promotes collagen production.
