Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, helps to refresh the skin and rebuild new skin tissue while helping the skin produce more collagen. As we get older, our body stops producing as much collagen. This can lead to a loss of volume and moisture in the skin. The microneedling device uses tiny micro-needles that are run over the skin, creating tiny controlled injuries in the dermis. This helps to produce collagen and form new skin tissue. At Essential Dermatology, Dr. Krathen offers this skin rejuvenation treatment to his patients to improve the look of their skin.
How Does Microneedling Work?
During the microneedling procedure, the device will be run over the skin, causing tiny wounds. These controlled injuries kick-start the body’s natural healing processes. Through this, collagen is produced to help heal the skin and new skin tissue is formed. This means that the old skin concerns are removed, and new, fresh skin is now visible.
What Does Microneedling Treat?
Maintenance for Microneedling
After your microneedling treatment, your face will be red and flushed in appearance. It will also be extra sensitive. It is important to avoid direct sun exposure and strenuous activity during the first couple days following treatment. Within three days, your skin should look and feel normal. Dr. Krathen will give you a full list of care instructions for your microneedling treatment and recommend skin care products to help you maintain the results.
