You’re going to want to look your best in 2017! Microneedling and chemical peels are definitely the way to go if you want smoother, healthier-looking skin in the new year.
Microneedling treatments are performed with the SkinPen®, an automated microneedling therapy system that vertically pierces the skin to naturally stimulate collagen induction therapy and percutaneous collagen induction. Through the process of neovascularization and neocollagenesis, improvements in skin texture and firmness result, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks. Microneedling is a safe, chemical-free treatment method that triggers new collagen production that can be performed on all skin colors and types, and it is sometimes the preferred treatment over laser as there is zero risk of burning. Microneedling is a simple and fast method for safely treating wrinkles and scars, and because the epidermis remains intact, the procedure can be repeated safely. It is also suited for regions where laser treatments and deep peels are not typically performed.
As we age, we lose elasticity in the deeper layers of our skin. Collagen, which serves as a support scaffold for the dermis, begins to fray and loosens its attachments to nearby collagen fibrils and dries up. This causes the skin to become loose and less elastic, allowing wrinkles to form. A chemical peel will help tighten that collagen layer, returning strength and shape to the skin. Facial peels by our medical spa provide the best in facial resurfacing. Chemical peels smooth out wrinkles and eliminate sun spots and brown spots.
