As we age, we want our skin to look and feel younger. Micro needling in Dallas can help achieve that youthful look. Micro needling is a minimally invasive treatment using extremely fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. The procedure ignites the body’s complex wound healing process. This stops the bleeding, provides nutrients and oxygen to the wound, and creates collagen.
Micro needling uses a roller with many extremely small needles. The roller is then rolled over the skin where the needles puncture just the top part of the skin. The body then starts the healing process by filling in the punctured area with new collagen to improve skin texture. The new skin replaces the old skin creating a healthier and younger look. Depending on the condition of the skin and the age of the patient, some patients may need multiple treatment sessions.
After each treatment, it can take about six weeks for the wounds to heal and about six months before you can see the dramatic results of the treatment. Patients will be able to see a difference in the appearance of their skin right away in some areas. Some people will notice that fine lines have diminished after the first treatment.
Micro needling can be performed on all types of skin. Although, if you have sensitive skin you may want to use a numbing agent to reduce discomfort.
Micro needling is not suitable for people who open abrasions or cuts, have undergone radiation treatments within the last year, have a skin condition or infection, is breastfeeding or pregnant, or has a history of hypertrophic scars or poor wound-healing.
Micro needling in Dallas can help to achieve smoother skin, increase circulation to areas of poor healing, minimize the appearance of scars as well as fine lines and wrinkles, and increase the penetration of lotions and moisturizers.
