Micro Needling Treatment
Available from one of Southern California’s premier skincare and dermatology clinics, LA Laser Center, micro needling is a natural collagen induction therapy that can minimize fine lines and wrinkles and make you look like a younger version of yourself! The procedure is minimally invasive and relatively painless, and starts helping your body produce more youth-boosting collagen right away.
What Is Micro Needling?
Micro needling, which is also sometimes referred to as skin needling, is a superficially invasive procedure that generates new collagen and stimulates self-repair abilities. A device containing fine needles is used to puncture the skin to shallow depths, or sometimes deeper ones in the case of scarring or other injury, to create minor wounds.
Needling the skin mobilizes your natural defenses to respond, and as one step in the healing process, it begins to create collagen. Scientists and doctors have known about the results of needling for decades, since French doctor Michael Pistor began experimenting with it midcentury. It came into greater popularity as an aesthetic tool toward the end of the last century, and has been delivering effective results to patients ever since.
How Does Micro Needling Work?
Micro needling is a skin needling treatment that makes tiny puncture wounds on your face or body. While this may result in minor bruising, the main benefit is that it stimulates your skin into repairing itself by building collagen, which tightens and firms skin. This cosmetic treatment option is similar to PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections, where your blood is drawn, platelets are activated, and reinjected. However, it is not the same thing.
The treatment may be performed by an aesthetician at our cosmetic skin care clinic for excellent results. Speak with a physician or registered nurse today about whether it is right for you.
Will It Work for Me?
Most people find that this treatment does work for them. It treats acne scars and trauma scars, and has minimal side effects. During the procedure, you may experience a minor prickling sensation, which is reduced when topical anesthetic is applied.
We use medical-grade rollers to help with photo damage wrinkles and help with scar revision, as well as boost your body’s natural defenses against sagging and wrinkles. If you would like to see younger, firmer, healthier-looking skin staring back at you from the mirror, sign up for a consultation with one of our doctors or aestheticians today.
