Is your skin looking less than its best? Skin problems like acne scars, wrinkles, blemishes, and other issues can be extremely annoying and tough to get rid of on your own. Modern medicine offers numerous treatment options for minimizing these types of skin conditions. Many of them do not even require surgery. Minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments like micro-needling are extremely popular right now in Alberta. Many patients mistakenly believe that such treatments offer results that pale in comparison to surgical techniques. Actually, non-surgical procedures offer significant results without the hassle and lengthy downtimes of traditional cosmetic surgery.
A Closer Look at Micro-Needling
Collagen induction therapy, commonly known as micro-needling, is a safe and effective method for reducing skin conditions like acne scars, blemishes, and wrinkles. Since no surgery is involved, you will be back to your normal routine in no time. The people in your life will probably not even know you had anything done, as the results of micro-needling build in the subsequent weeks and months after the treatment.
The micro-needling procedure itself involves passing a special device over your skin. Each sweep of the device creates numerous microscopic channels in the surface of your skin. This causes your body to replace unwanted skin tissue with fresher skin that pushes up from beneath to replace the old, damaged skin.
What Skin Problems Can Be Treated?
The micro-needling procedure at our office in Alberta is highly effective at smoothing and tightening targeted areas of the face and body. It has the ability to minimize scars, aging skin, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other blemishes.
Micro-needling dramatically improves the skin penetration of topical skin care products. This is because of the many tiny micro-channels created during the micro-needling treatment process, so topicals can bypass the outer skin layer. Since micro-needling improves skin penetration, the treatment would be a good time to combine a topical product application like anti-aging serums. This will greatly enhance their penetration and effectiveness.
