Microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is used to treat scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone/texture. The use of small needles administered through a handheld electronic pen reach the papillary and reticular dermis in a purely mechanical way. Each individual microlesion is perceived by the skin as injury, but because the epidermal barrier is minimally disrupted, scarless would healing occurs. This treatment delivers results that complement and, in some cases, replace more invasive treatments while showing less side effects and shorter downtime. The microneedling services at The Morgenstern Center for Orbital and Facial Plastic Surgery can diminish or even erase scars and other facial blemishes. Call (610) 687.8771 to set up an appointment at our Suite 202 Facial Spa.
Benefits of Microneedling
Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that gives your skin much of its strength and elasticity. When you get a cut or scrape on your body, collagen is one of the things that begins the healing process. A microneedling device accelerates the production of collagen on the surface of the skin. By pricking the skin, it causes collagen to build up, improving the skin's appearance.
Microneedling can treat the following conditions:
- Scars caused by acne or chicken pox
- Smile lines
- Crow's feet
After a microneedling treatment, your skin may appear slightly inflamed. Icing the affected area can help, and your skin should go back to normal in as little as 2 days! Microneedling can be done in conjunction with other services that The Morgenstern Center offers at Suite 202, the med spa that provides professional cosmetic services dedicating to maintaining and reviving your skin and face.
