One of the most popular modern facial treatments available to patients who want better looking skin is called microneedling. This procedure, sometimes called collagen induction therapy, helps patients fight the effects of aging on their skin and it also gets rid of some unwanted marks. Stimulation of the cells in the skin can generate new cells that freshen your appearance without the need for plastic surgery. Learn more about the pros of getting this treatment at The Skin Renewal Center in Montrose, Houston, TX.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin therapy that helps patients with wrinkles, lines, large pores, and other facial imperfections. A tool called a dermapen puts hundreds of microscopic holes in the skin. The holes cause the production of new collagen in the skin, which heals the skin while making it look smoother and younger. Microneedling also reduces or eliminates the appearance of scars or dark marks on the face. Because the holes reach into deeper layers of the skin, special restorative serums may be more effective after a microneedling treatment.
The Microneedling Procedure
Many patients who opt for microneedling have a pain-free experience. A numbing solution is first applied to the skin to maximize your comfort during the procedure. Our Montrose, Houston doctor hovers the dermapen over the areas of concern, applying the needling effect. The treatment will be over in about a half an hour. The skin may be red for a while, but once it heals you’ll begin to see the improvement.
