Are you frustrated with unwanted effects of the aging process, such as fine lines and skin elasticity? Do you worry that too much fun in the sun has made a permanent toll on your skin? Have you considered pursuing an aesthetic treatment to refresh your appearance, but you are hesitant to try treatments utilizing foreign substances? Consider micro-needling! This non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment creates micro-channels on the skin to stimulate your body’s natural healing and tissue growth processes. Explore the benefits during a consultation with our team at Metabolix Wellness Center in Clearwater, FL!
What Is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment option to trigger your body’s natural healing responses. These processes involve the growth of new tissues, such as collagen tissues. Collagen is important for providing your skin with firmness and structure, but production naturally declines over time.
This skin rejuvenation treatment may be used to minimize the appearance of:
- Acne scars
- Dull skin tone or texture
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines
- Loose skin or skin laxity
- Sun damaging
- Uneven skin tone or texture
While most commonly performed on the face, micro-needling can be performed on nearly any of the body, such as the chest and neck.
To enhance results, micro-needling can be performed with growth factors or PRP (platelet-rich plasma). Once micro-channels are created, these powerful substances are massaged into the skin to promote rapid and optimal healing.
What Could I Expect from a Procedure?
Micro-needling treatments are performed as outpatient procedures in the comfort of our Florida office. During treatment, a handheld device is used to create micro-channels on the skin. This begins targeted and precise tissue regrowth stimulation.
There is no set downtime with these skin rejuvenation treatments. However, it is important to take particular care of your skin following a session. Skin may be tender, red, and sensitive.
Results achieved with micro-needling will vary for each person, concern, and severity of the concern. While you may enjoy some initial results after treatment, the best results take some time to enjoy as new collagen tissues form. To experience the best results, a series of regular treatments will likely be recommended.
Am I a Good Candidate?
One of the most appealing benefits of micro-needling is the diversity of people and concerns it is able to effectively treat! It may be a safe and powerful choice for nearly all skin tones and types.
A consultation with our team in Clearwater can help ensure this is the best treatment option for you and your goals. They can also help you determine if combining the treatment with PRP or growth factors may help enhance your results. As the best results typically require a series of treatments, they can also help you develop your unique treatment plan.
