Fine lines and scars may be an inevitable part of life, but they don't have to be permanent signs of your age or reminders of struggles with acne, broadcasting your past to everyone who sees them (including you, whenever you face the mirror). Microneedling at Texas' Skin Care Fort Worth has proven to be an effective treatment for not just fading these aesthetic annoyances, but getting your own skin to help itself.
The technology driving this treatment has led many people to create numerous devices and techniques. Dr. Peter Damico chose the Eclipse MicroPen™ for Skin Care Fort Worth, bringing a reliable, effective solution to men and women seeking improvement to the overall appearance of their skin.
Let us create a skin care plan that is right for you.
When something pierces your skin, your body begins healing that area. A very small wound, however, does little more than prompt your system to kick into gear for repairs. Microneedling works off of this principle by creating numerous tiny channels in the skin, sending the targeted area into heightened state of subsurface activity.
Most essentially, the treatment induces the formation of new collagen, which is a flexible and supportive substance found throughout the body. Microneedling also boosts elastin production. These elements help to give skin its youthful resilience and structure.
As collagen and elastin creation increases, aesthetic problems decrease.
Microneedling is ideal for:
It may also improve the appearance of pigmentation irregularities, other scars, and stretch marks.
Skin Care Fort Worth uses microneedling exclusively for the face. Anyone seeking to address skin on their neck or décolletage, as well as arms and legs, back, abdomen, or hands, can talk to the team about other types of treatments available.
The automated Eclipse MicroPen™ makes a microneedling session a quick endeavor. The device glides over skin with the aid of a topical gel, moving in one fluid motion to cover all of the targeted area. As it moves, incredibly tiny points enter the skin, creating a sensation sometimes described as light vibrations.
These channels start the collagen and elastin production, as well as allow effective penetration of beneficial serums and creams, further improving skin health and appearance.
The entire process, including the application of a numbing compound to make the treatment virtually painless, should take no longer than an hour. This is followed by a day of red skin in the treated area. The results will become increasingly apparent in the weeks after a session, with collagen production continuing to improve the skin for up to six months. For ideal results, clients may need to receive two to three treatments with six to eight weeks between each session. The exact number of treatments needed varies from client to client, and is determined according to a person's unique skin type and condition, as well as their ultimate goals. The projected treatment plan can be discussed during the consultation.
While microneedling works well to revitalize facial skin, clients may also want to consider chemical peels for generating a more youthful glow and fewer lines and marks.
