Whether you’re looking for an effective anti-aging treatment to fight those fine lines and wrinkles, have an uneven skin texture from acne scars or large pores, or have uneven skin tone from hyperpigmentation, micro-needling may be a solution that’s right for you.
Micro-needling uses a special tool that takes advantage of your skin’s own ability to heal. The professional tool creates tiny, microscopic wounds. They’re too small to notice, but your skin does detect them and responds by producing more collagen and replacing skin cells.
As our skin ages – as early as in our 20s – skin rejuvenation slows down. Collagen, an important protein that keeps skin firm and young-looking, begins to slow production, and skin cells don’t regenerate as quickly as before. When this happens, you’ll start to notice gaps where the skin shows visible lines, wrinkles, and sagging. When micro-needling stimulates these natural healing processes, it can fill in the gaps that cause these lines and wrinkles.
The same process works for scarring and uneven skin tone. Replacing skin cells and collagen helps fill in uneven areas that appear from minor acne scarring. It also helps replace surface skin that shows visible age spots or other uneven pigments so your skin can essentially start fresh.
At Helen’s Haven Integrative Medical Spa, we have two options for micro-needling, and our expert estheticians will help you select the option that’s right for you. Our Classic Micro-Needling treatment uses an electronic device to provide the treatment with no discomfort or downtime. Our Elite Micro-Needling with MDerma uses the innovative Dermapen® to penetrate deeper for more dramatic results. Each treatment is followed by a refreshing cooling treatment and a home care kit to care for your skin after treatment. Because it penetrates deeper, you will experience some redness like a sunburn that will last a few days.
