Micro-needling is a skin resurfacing procedure that utilizes tiny needles to create microscopic injuries in the skin, stimulating new collagen formation and creating channels for topical solutions to penetrate deeper into the skin and work more effectively. Micro-needling has gained popularity in recent years, as it is an effective and relatively painless way to smooth and plump all skin colors while evening tone and texture to create a brighter, more youthful complexion, bringing focus back to a person’s natural beauty. Micro-needling can be used to treat acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks and sagging skin. Collagen production is stimulated during a micro-needling treatment, helping to renew the skin and leaving patients with a more youthful appearance. The procedure has been proven safe and effective, and many celebrities use it to keep their skin youthful and bright. A micro-needling session generally takes half an hour or less, depending on the area treated.
Although topical solutions are effective for the uppermost layer of skin, called the epidermis, they can only go so far. Micro-needling allows for topical solutions to reach the dermis through the tiny channels created by the procedure, allowing these solutions to work more efficiently and effectively, leading to dramatic results. At hela® Medical Spa, we work with each individual patient in order to create the best customized micro-needling treatment plan. Following a micro-needling treatment, it is important to stay out of the sun as much as possible and protect the skin with a high SPF sunblock, since the skin will be more sensitive to UV rays. At hela® Medical Spa, we work with each patient to create a follow-up skin care regimen that will preserve the effects of micro-needling and allow patients to retain a youthful look for longer. Some patients may require more than one micro-needling session for optimal results, depending on what issues are being treated.
