Microneedling – Madison, CT
One of the keys to maintaining supple, youthful-looking skin is collagen, but the production of collagen slows with age. When collagen diminishes, the skin loses elasticity and wrinkles start to appear, among other changes.
Microneedling helps to jumpstart the production of collagen at the source and harness the body’s own skin-building properties. This quick, in-office treatment requires little downtime and produces smooth, plump skin. Microneedling is safe and effective against a variety of cosmetic concerns, including hyperpigmentation, uneven skin texture, acne scars, and more.
It’s never been easier to renew your complexion – discover the benefits of microneedling at Aria DermSpa, and attain smooth, radiant skin.
How Microneedling Works
During your microneedling treatment, a small device with tiny needles is gently passed over the skin to create controlled microinjuries. As these superficial injuries heal, new collagen growth is stimulated, which helps plump up the skin, fill in fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin tone.
For optimal results, microneedling is often performed with PRP therapy (platelet rich plasma). With PRP therapy, blood is taken from the patient and is spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets. The resulting serum contains high concentrations of natural growth factors and other proteins that are essential for wound healing. When they are injected or applied topically, these growth factors quickly get to work and stimulate the production of collagen.
So how does microneedling help this process? The tiny injuries induced by microneedling create direct pathways for the platelet rich plasma to penetrate deeply into the skin. When performed together, these procedures allow for optimal rejuvenation.
