Microneedling is a cosmetic facial treatment that involves the puncturing of the skin with tiny, sterile needles to trigger the skin’s healing process and the production of collagen. In addition to triggering the skin’s natural healing process, different topical components can be added afterward that address a variety of issues. This treatment is great for healing scars, tightening skin, and creating collagen. When combined with serums such as Vitamin C or Stem Cells the results can be even more impressive. Vitamin C can reduce the severity of fine lines and wrinkles, help your skin retain moisture and brighten your skin. Since micro-needling allows products to better absorb, applying a serum immediately following treatment will be more effective and sink in deeper. Stem cells have the ability to completely regenerate the skin. This a very attractive benefit to patients that want a treatment to improve the more severe signs of aging. While the skin is still fresh from micro-needling, stem-cells are applied to the skin as a topical treatment. The tiny “wounds” will soak up the stem-cells completely rather than attempting to soak into closed pores. Here is a video a stem cell micro-needling treatment.
