At Results Med Spa we deliver an advanced medical grade Microneedling procedure. Microneedling treats wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and rough skin texture by activating your skin’s natural healing mechanisms. The procedure involves a device that delivers tiny needle pricks to stimulate the skin’s natural healing process. Microneedling can minimize wrinkles and improve the appearance of scars in all skin types and with minimal recovery time. At Results Med Spa, only a highly- trained, licensed professional will perform this treatment.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to create numerous tiny punctures to the skin. Each puncture triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. The result of this process is an improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
Collagen is a protein in the skin that plays a major role in the structure of the skin. Skin with ample collagen is supple, firm, resists photoaging and renews itself in a timely fashion. Skin lacking in collagen tends to be thin, can become sensitive and is more susceptible to photoaging which causes age spots as well as wrinkles. Microneedling stimulates the skin to produce collagen and, therefore, strengthens the skins at a cellular level. Elastin is another important protein in the skin and is responsible for the skin’s elasticity. Skin that lacks elastin slowly begins to sag, being unable to spring back into shape under the pressures of time and gravity. Mirconeedling stimulates the body’s production of elastin and helps keep the skin supple and bounding back into shape. This treatment improves the look of crepey skin and that rough orange peel texture that some women begin to notice on their chin and cheeks from years of sun damage. It evens helps to minimize the look of larger pores, giving an overall smoother, younger looking skin. Microneedling can be done on the face, neck, or décolletage. Dermatologists and aestheticians typically offer this treatment.
While an old scar can be made less noticeable with creams and serums offering almost magical results, it cannot be reduced in size or smoothed in texture. The collagen in the skin needs to be repaired in order for the scar to start making an improvement. Microneedling uses fine needle pricks to trigger the body’s natural healing response to produce new collagen and elastin. Depending on the depth of the scar and the area of the body it may take 3 to 6 treatments to get significant improvement.
