San Juan Capistrano residents deal with many of the same skin complaints as the rest of the country. Problems like sun-damaged skin, wrinkles, blemishes, and scars often leave people with lower self-esteem, which can itself trigger a host of additional issues. Many people mistakenly assume that the only way to make a significant change in the appearance of their skin is to undergo some type of drastic procedure like a facelift. However, a growing number of minimally-invasive techniques are available that still provide skin enhancement and rejuvenation. One of the best treatments out there is micro-needling.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling basically causes the skin to rejuvenate itself. During the treatment, many tiny micro-channels are created in the skin. We also use topical growth factors to further enhance the results. Your body responds to this by depositing fresh collagen and elastin fibers, greatly improving the quality of your skin. Instead of old skin “hanging around” and becoming more dull and lifeless, micro-needling forces old skin cells to be replaced by newer ones. The result is skin that appears smoother, younger, and more radiant.
What are the Benefits of Micro-Needling?
Among the benefits of micro-needling are the reduction of lines and wrinkles, blemishes, and stretch marks. The treatment is also beneficial in the treatment of scars formed due to acne, trauma, or surgery. You can also expect to see a more even skin tone. This is because micro-needling is able to fade age spots or sun damage.
Micro-needling works very well in conjunction with topical skin care products. The tiny, microscopic channels created by the process allow growth factors and serums to bypass the skin’s outer barrier known as the stratum corneum. This barrier, composed of dead skin cells, fats, and cellular debris, can prevent larger molecules from penetrating deeper into the skin.
