Your skin, your body’s largest organ, can be one of the first areas where signs of aging and wear-and-tear start to show up – if you didn’t already have skin issues when you were young! For some, skin problems persist from adolescence onward, while others want to erase the years from aging skin.
Many skin conditions, from dark spots to acne scars to sagging due to age, can be improved with microneedling treatment. At Orange Coast Dermatology of Rancho Santa Margarita and Mission Viejo, California, our experienced aesthetics team recommends microneedling for a variety of skin care and appearance improvement needs.
Here’s what we want our new and existing patients to know about the promise of microneedling to improve their skin.
Microneedling treatment involves stimulating your skin with a high-tech device that creates many tiny pinpricks in the upper and deeper layers of your skin. Microneedling isn’t very painful, and we can use anesthetic creams to address any discomfort during the procedure.
As a result of the controlled wound production of microneedling, your skin starts to heal and rebuild itself. Microneedling also effectively breaks up areas of hyperpigmentation, or visible dark spots, refreshing the surface of your skin.
In the weeks and months after your microneedling treatment session, your skin is stimulated to renew production of the proteins collagen and elastin. These essential proteins give your skin fullness and elasticity. And, increased blood flow leaves your skin better able to flush away old proteins and debris, renewing your skin and encouraging new cellular growth.
With one or more microneedling treatments, you can address skin conditions including:
