Micro-needling is the latest and greatest in optimal skincare tone and rejuvenation therapy. We are proud and excited to offer a quality service which is non-invasive & non-ablative. Intra-dermabrasion is a new type of mechanism to activate collagen & elastin synthesis and promises to be the future of skin beautification and rejuvenation.
Micro-needling is now being used as an alternative to:
* Chemical peels
* Laser resurfacing
* and other ablative & non-ablative treatments without the side effects as well as risk of infections.
The major cause of advanced aging of our skin is the loss of our collagen and elastin matrix. Collagen loss is influenced largely by our genetics as well as our environmental and personal care habits. Burning and excessive accumulated UV exposure, smoking, poor nutritional habits, lack of consistent skin hygiene all can act to accelerate collagen loss and lead to premature skin aging.
Approximately 75% of the dermis is made up of collagen. In healthy skin it is arranged in bundles known as a “basket-weave” formation, which provides the overall skin with its strength and prevents tearing and breakdown. Being that collagen decreases as we age, the skin tends to become thinner and sag as we get older.
Elastin maintains the skin’s tension and extensibility and composes approximately 5% of the skin’s formation. Elastin fibers can diminsh, breakdown and lose their normal structure with aging. In skin which has been overexposed to UV rays or sun exposure, elastin increases and becomes thickened and therefore loses it’s normal structure. Fibroblasts are the controlling dermal cells; Micro-needling activates, through specific interactive signaling, neuro-dermal layers which produces new collagen and elastin fibers.
Micro-needling can be a good choice for people who have not seen success in reducing the look of wrinkles or deep acne scars with other types of treatment. The cost is lower than many other procedures, the recovery is easier and the risk is less than that of more invasive treatment options. Call our office today at 602-283-2061 to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our practitioners to see if micro-needling is the right choice for you.
