Your skin goes through a lot. It battles sunlight, dry air, stress, sweat, hormonal changes, and more. Over time, it’s only natural that your skin changes — but you might not welcome these changes!
As your outermost organ, your skin is susceptible to aging and injury, which leaves people with wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, dark spots, and more.
Dr. Eliza Sangmuah and Dr. Eugene Sangmuah of The Med Spa at Matthews Internal Medicine are experts in skin rejuvenation, and they want you to know about one special treatment that can combat all of those skin ailments and more — microneedling.
A drug-free, minimally invasive procedure, microneedling uses tiny needles to prick the outer layer of your skin and create “micro-traumas.” Those micro-traumas signal your skin to send its best defenses to the injured area to repair your skin and stimulate new collagen production, which results in a younger-looking, smoother, brighter complexion.
If that doesn’t convince you, consider these five powerful benefits of microneedling for your skin:
1. Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Antiaging may be the No. 1 reason patients come to Dr. Eliza and Dr. Eugene for microneedling. Due to its powerful collagen-producing abilities, microneedling tightens up the skin and reduces crow’s feet, laugh lines, and more.
2. Treat Pesky Scars
Microneedling can treat scars that arose from any cause, but many patients seek microneedling treatments for acne scars on their face or upper back. If you decide to get microneedling for scars, you can expect a gradual reduction in scar tissue and discoloration.
3. Get Rid of Sun Spots and Age Spots
If you’re yearning for a smooth complexion but your face is dotted with dark spots, microneedling is definitely the treatment for you. In fact, microneedling is one of the most effective treatment options for hyperpigmentation.
Dr. Eliza and Dr. Eugene target those age spots and dark spots, areas of your face where more melanin lies. Over time, the new collagen production induces the formation of a new layer of skin that is free of dark spots.
4. Eliminate Stretch Marks
Most patients get microneedling on their face, but if you have stretch marks on your arms, abdomen, or legs, Dr. Eliza or Dr. Eugene can use microneedling to gradually minimize or completely eliminate them elsewhere on your body. When we’re using microneedling for stretch marks, you’ll see the best results if you come back for a few follow-up sessions.
5. Overall rejuvenation
A few days after your microneedling treatment, you’ll start to notice a vast improvement in the overall appearance of your skin: Your complexion will look brighter and smoother, taut and more youthful — and like you just received the best facial of your life.
Plus, your results continue to develop over the next few months. You can expect optimal results 3-6 months after your initial treatment.
If you choose to add platelet-rich plasma therapy to your microneedling treatment, you can expect all of these benefits to be even more prominent.
