One way to treat your skin for various conditions and signs of aging without resorting to the most extreme forms of treatment is to undergo a procedure called microneedling.  This skin treatment is a minimally invasive and nonabrasive procedure that works to effectively take care of your skin concerns and to give you the glowing complexion that you deserve.  It is used to treat issues such as wrinkles, stretch marks, sagging skin, pigmentation, and scars that come from various sources.  It has been proven to work and may be repeated multiple times depending on the condition being treated and its severity.  How does it work?

Microneedling involves a pen shaped medical device that penetrates the skin with fine needles very rapidly to create controlled skin injury.  This procedure allows the skin to rebuild its elasticity.  It also signals skin cells to reproduce, which leads to the development of new layers of elastin and collagen.  As a result of these occurrences, skin texture, firmness, and hydration improve.  The procedure is well-tolerated, and requires protection from the sun.  Some of its benefits include:

    1. It works on all skin types
    2. It is cost effective
    3. It does not damage the epidermis
    4. Recovery time, compared to laser resurfacing and dermabrasion, is minimal.

    Microneedling is a great, effective, and minimally invasive procedure that can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions.  It takes between five minutes and an hour, depending on the condition being treated, and is very practical to do.  Minimal recovery time is required for patients who undergo the procedure, and side effects are not severe. Results may vary in every particular case (depending on your skin condition, age etc.).  For more information on this wonderful procedure, please contact Florida Aesthetics and Medical Weight Loss today to talk to one of our licensed medical practitioners.
