Microneedling is a collagen induced therapy used to eliminate visible skin conditions that naturally occur as our body ages. This is used to treat:
- Acne scars
- Age spots (sunspots)
- Fine lines
- Large pores
- Uneven skin tones
As we age and battle skin conditions, the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates, which can lead to these fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture. Microneedling is a great way to address these signs of aging at the cellular level. Microneedling comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process using a SkinPen by Bellus Medical. This results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. The outcome is beautiful, youthful looking skin.
The SkinPen by Bellus Medical will be used by our professionals to create thousands of microchannels that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. This rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
There are three phases to the wound-repair process:
- Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to cleanse the wound, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
- Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
- Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
