Microneedling is a medical procedure that treats wrinkles and other medical conditions; it is also called collagen induction therapy. It involves the pricking of the skin with many tiny sterile needles. The needles do not harm the skin, but they trigger natural wound healing. Doctors in Port Orchard Natural Medicine often combine micro-needling with the application of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to further promote skin rejuvenation.
Microneedling promotes smoother, younger-looking skin, removes wrinkles and improves the appearance of scars like acne scars and other imperfections. Additionally, it can reverse baldness and thinning hair on the scalp. Micro-Needling recovery time ranges from one to three days.
Micro Needling Procedure
The first step in any professional microneedling procedure should be a comprehensive medical history to rule out any contraindications for micro needling. Some skin conditions could get worse after micro needling, and you might have trouble during healing process from the micro needling procedure if you have certain conditions such as diabetes, hepatitis, or blood clotting problems.
The doctor will use a device, sometimes called a derma roller (though it may go under different brand names), that rolls over the scalp during the procedure. As it does, it pricks the skin with needles less than a quarter of a millimeter thick. The tiny holes after collagen induction therapy, heal quickly, but they trigger chemical signals in your skin that promote wound healing and new collagen growth.
Microneedling with PRP
If your doctor uses PRP as part of the microneedling procedure, a nurse or technician will remove some of your blood.
Cells called platelets are part of your blood that helps clot if you are injured. Platelets contain chemicals that promote wound healing. The technician will isolate the platelets from your blood, along with a liquid called plasma. The doctor applies platelet-rich plasma to your skin during the procedure.
Micro Needling for Younger Skin:
Many people see lines and wrinkles on the skin as an inevitable part of the aging process or as a sign of experience. Not all aging is inevitable, and you can have the wisdom of age while still looking young. Advanced treatments like microneedling give our patients self-confidence.
Micro Needling is like a workout for your body’s healing and defense mechanisms:
By waking these systems up and setting them to work on your skin and hair, they bring your face, hands, and arms back to their more youthful state. This process can reduce or eliminate liver spots and some other blemishes that occur due to the aging process.
It can be done without Anesthesia:
Because the micro needling treatment only uses very thin needles, the doctor can do it without anesthetic—a benefit for patients who are allergic to anesthetic or worry about side effects.
Micro Needling can go well with other Skin Healing Process:
The micro-needling technique works well with other treatments that promote healing and skin health. The tiny openings in the skin prime it to respond to other healing therapies.
Micro Needling with a Holistic Approach:
Many doctors provide microneedling services, but a holistic approach that incorporates microneedling as part of a comprehensive treatment plan is more likely to achieve lasting results.
Following are some of the results you can expect after the Micro Needling treatment:
After micro needling treatments, you might see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles on your skin as well as smoother, fuller skin.
If you have age spots, they might disappear throughout your treatment.
Your skin might become more flexible.
If you have surgical scars or stretch marks from pregnancy, they might fade after treatment.
Microneedling causes pores to shrink, resulting in skin texture that looks better and is more resistant to acne scars as well as acne scars. The healing processes in micro-needling combat the adverse effects of sun damage.
Microneedling affects the scalp as well as the skin texture. Many patients who have thinning hair or hair loss find that the process reverses male pattern baldness and thinning hair in men and women. The hair follicles in the skin can become dormant as we age. Microneedling causes hair follicles to return to their active state.
Once your physical appearance becomes more youthful, you might find your mental health improving as you approach life’s challenges with more confidence. You might find it easier to maintain and reestablish social networks, providing support when you need it and enriching your life.
