Do you wish there was a non-surgical way to refresh your skin? Have you been looking for a way to diminish some signs of aging? If so, you may want to take a look at microneedling! It is a great way to improve skin’s appearance while dealing with some common skin concerns. If you are ready for great skin without surgery, Dr. Renee Moran Medical Aesthetics in Newton Centre, MA can help!
What Is Microneedling?
It is a treatment option that uses very fine needles to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin to prompt intensive healing and boost collagen production. The process can actually improve the appearance of the skin from the inside out. It is not an invasive treatment or one that is surgical. And, the best part is that it can give you incredible results quickly. It is effective on all skin tones and types also!
How It Works
The process works by gently pressing the small, fine needles into the skin where they are able to penetrate deeply. This promotes healing from the deeper layer of the skin and improves new, fresh skin tissue to emerge. It also boosts collagen production which is going to help skin look younger, plumper, and even brighter.
The Benefits of Treatment
Smoother Skin Texture
Rough skin or skin that is prone to bumps can be a frustrating issue that many people have to deal with. However, this treatment can help even out the texture of your skin, giving you revitalized, smoother skin that you can see and touch!
More Even Skin Tone
Any uneven skin tone like excessive redness, hyperpigmentation, or other issues can also be aided using this extraordinary treatment option. Not only will this treatment help with evening out the tone of the skin, it will also give you a brighter complexion.
Fades Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Although fine lines and wrinkles are part of the aging process, many people would rather have more youthful-looking skin. This treatment will fade the look of mild to moderate wrinkles and fine lines and can even help with fine lines and wrinkles that are more severe.
Fades Sun Damage & Acne Scarring
Minor to moderate scarring left behind from past acne is another issue that many people struggle with. Because of the intensive healing that this treatment promotes, acne scarring can be significantly diminished after only a single treatment. It can also help even out any uneven tones caused by sun damage.
Firmer, Plumper Skin
If you have noticed that your skin is less firm and less plump than it once was, it is likely due to a lack of collagen production. This treatment is able to successfully boost the amount of collagen that the body produces and overall, this is going to give you younger-looking skin. Your skin will be both firmer and plumper following your treatment session.
Totally Refreshed Skin
All in all, your skin will be improved in many ways. The skin will appear younger, be smoother, firmer, and have less visible common issues such as wrinkles, scarring, and more. If you want a way to significantly improve your skin, there are few options that can deliver as many benefits as this option!
