Medically known as Collagen Induction Therapy, microneedling is an advanced skin rejuvenation treatment that builds upon knowledge from ancient times. Centuries ago, our ancestors understood that certain forms of skin injuries can lead to skin rejuvenation. Back then it was not known how to safely and reliably deliver these tiny injuries to trigger the formation of new skin tissue. In recent years, a technique has been developed to do just that, and microneedling is now available for residents of Tiburon.
How It Works
Microneedling works by inducing controlled injuries using a special device. This hand-held device is covered in numerous fine needles that puncture the skin to a shallow depth. The technique triggers a self-repair process resulting in the turnover of old skin cells that make way for new ones. The new skin tissue that is formed will display fewer imperfections like signs of aging and sun damage.
Thin, Wrinkled Skin
The development of thin, wrinkled skin is often due to a loss of collagen, which is a naturally produced substance that breaks down more readily as you age. Needling treatments have been found to dramatically boost the presence of collagen in the skin, leading to skin that is thicker and displays less prominent wrinkles.
Scars are a type of abnormal tissue that is formed when your body is forced to heal rapidly due to injury, surgery, or skin conditions like acne. They vary greatly in appearance, but the skin is usually shiny, and it can be either raised or flat.
Patients typically benefit from multiple needling sessions unless their scars are very superficial. The cumulative effect of microneedling allows each session to build upon the results of previous treatment sessions. One key point is that you must wait a few weeks between treatments to give your skin time to heal and remodel properly.
Although they are not harmful, stretch marks present a cosmetic concern for many patients. These irregularly colored bands of skin form when your skin stretches rapidly due to things like pregnancy or extreme weight fluctuations.
A needling treatment in Tiburon can help to diminish or remove stretch marks by forcing the skin to remodel at the site of treatment. New skin tissue will be formed in the area, which eventually displays less prominent stretch marks.
