How Micro-needling Works To Make You Look Younger
Posted by Dr. Joshua Fox on April 21, 2021

Youthful skin is desired by many. No matter what we do, wear and tear are likely to occur. Our skin gets stressed through hormonal changes, and with the passing of time, the natural collagen begins to decrease. It begins to wrinkle, and fine lines start to appear. The past 20 years have sparked a resurgence in skin rejuvenation techniques, like Micro-needling. Micro-needling allows your skin to renew itself naturally for a fresher and younger-looking appearance with a holistic approach to natural beauty.

Understanding Micro-needling

For starters, let’s look at what micro-needling is. The concept of “Micro-needling” involves a fine-needle roller or pen device that creates tiny holes in the top layer of the skin with the intent to expose your skin to generate new collagen for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. It is also referred to as “collagen induction therapy,” and this is a controlled process that induces the skin to heal and indirectly promotes collagen production. This minimally invasive treatment has the goal to eliminate imperfections and can reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks. The Board-Certified Dermatologists at Advanced Dermatology, PC utilize this impressive technology to rejuvenate and enhance your complexion, helping individuals target their skincare concerns.

What are commonly targeted areas for “Micro-needling”?

Micro-needing is used in an attempt to even the tone of the skin. Some common areas are: Acne Scars, Age Spots, Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Large Pores, Reduced Skin Elasticity, Uneven Skin Tone, Stretch Marks, and Scarring.

Variations of Micro-Needling

As we know, micro-needling is one of the hottest trends in skincare, and it even offers variations in treatments. There are few types in variations: · Micro-needling with RF (with radiofrequency) delivers a more intensive, aggressive treatment. During this procedure, a non-invasive device is a mixture of tiny needles to deliver a burst of radiofrequency energy down to the pins into the skin. · Micro-needling with PRP (adding blood plasma) may make the treatment more effective. During this treatment, blood is drawn and then centrifuged to retrieve plasma which is incorporated into the treatment. How does the procedure work? This procedure starts with the dermatologist utilizing a tool known as the CPIN. The doctor will move the device evenly across the area to create micro-punctures across the skin’s surface. The skin will begin to heal and produce collagen over nine months. Over this course of time, you may need to come in for three to six treatments.

Our own Jennifer Wong, RPA-C, mentioned “CPIN micro-needling is one of my favorite procedures to regenerate and rejuvenate the skin especially for acne scarring.”
