Pompano Beach residents love taking advantage of the many outdoor recreational opportunities that Florida offers. Although these activities can be very enjoyable, the sun and environment can also take their toll on your skin. Skin problems like sun spots, wrinkles, and dry skin can leave you looking older than you actually feel. There are numerous surgical options available to help correct aging or sun-damaged skin. However, a growing number of people prefer to choose non-surgical methods that have recently been made available. Non-surgical techniques like micro-needling offer many of the same benefits as surgical ones without the need for great risk or extensive downtimes.
A Closer Look at Micro-Needling
Micro-needling is increasing in popularity in Pompano Beach and elsewhere because it offers a way to significantly enhance and rejuvenate your skin without resorting to surgery. It is safe, effective, and minimally-invasive. The treatment is helpful in correcting problems like fine lines and wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and other skin blemishes.
During this treatment, we move the micro-needling device over your skin. This produces many tiny micro-channels that promote skin rejuvenation. Each pass of the device forms tiny micro-openings in the skin that encourage your body to replace old, damaged skin cells with new ones. The result is skin remodeling that helps erase signs of aging and sun-damaged skin.
In the days and weeks that follow the treatment, your body will respond to these micro-openings by filling in the holes with fresh collagen and elastin fibers. Your skin will take on a more even tone and begin appearing more youthful and radiant. Since we are not stretching your skin using surgery, your results will appear very soft and natural. You can expect to heal rapidly without the need for much downtime.
If you normally have your skin treated with topical skin care products, the many tiny openings created by the micro-needling process allow for much greater skin penetration. The treatment opens channels through your skin that allow serums, gels, ointments, and other solutions to bypass the skin’s outer barrier more effectively.
Multiple Micro-Needling Sessions
If your skin problems are more serious, multiple micro-needling sessions at our office near Pompano Beach can help. Each individual treatment builds upon the results of the previous treatments. We can discuss this option with you during your initial consultation.
