What are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Micro-needling allows your body to replace scar tissue with new, healthy skin cells, making this treatment highly effective for diminishing scars caused by acne or even trauma.
Reverses Sun Damage
Sun exposure increases the production of melanin, which rises to the surface and causes age spots. When UV rays damage melanocytes these cells form clusters that result in blotchy spots on our skin, such as hyperpigmentation, age spots, or melasma. Micro-needling breaks up these clusters and prompts new skin cells to rise to the surface and replace them.
Diminishes Fine Lines and Wrinkles
When collagen and elastin fibers break down, our skin doesn’t have as much support to stay firm and tight. Gravity pulls the skin down, resulting in lines and wrinkles. Micro-needling stimulates the fibroblast cells responsible for collagen production to repair weakened collagen fibers and create new ones, tightening the skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s like a reset button on aging.
Deeply Infuses Beneficial Serums
The AquaGold® Fine Touch micro-needling tip is capable of delivering therapeutic serums chosen for your specific skin concerns through the micro-injuries and deeper into your skin. The deeper penetration of these active serums results in greater efficacy than if they were simply applied on the skin’s surface.
Less Recovery Time than Chemical Peels
Typically, patients at The Langdon Center experience 24-48 hours of redness, sensitivity, and minor swelling or bruising with micro-needling. With chemical peels, you may require up to 10 days of healing before you’re ready to resume your schedule. With micro-needling, you may only need a day or two of social downtime.
