Microneedling is one of the latest popular dermatologist techniques for remedying minor skin flaws like wrinkles, stretch marks, and more.
Microneedling is a process that involves poking the skin with tiny sterile needles. The needles create small wounds, which cause the body to produce extra elastin and collagen to repair them. Your skin will feel healthier and look better as the wounds heal, thanks to your body's amazing healing power.
At HealthKey Group, located in the Flushing neighborhood of Queens and in Lower Manhattan, New York City, Nikki Yu uses microneedling to fix the following skin imperfections.
While microneedling can't fix all skin flaws, it offers improvement for many of the most common skin imperfections people wish to improve.
Wrinkles are a byproduct of aging caused by a natural reduction in elastin and collagen. However, microneedling is perfect for remedying wrinkles. Microneedling wrinkles helps smooth them out and promotes skin flexibility, as the body produces new collagen and elastin.
Stretch marks are caused by rapid body expansion, whether from weight gain, pregnancy, or other factors. The stretchy scar tissue can cause low self-confidence, but microneedling can help fix them.
Microneedling breaks up the scar tissue, causing the body to replace it with healthier skin that looks more similar to the rest of your skin and eliminates or reduces the appearance of stretch marks.
Acne is a normal part of teenage hormonal changes, but if topical treatments are not strong enough or you have scars, microneedling can help.
If you have active acne, microneedling can apply acne medicine directly to the skin, increasing its effectiveness. Old acne scars can also be fixed with microneedling by breaking up the scar tissue to promote healthier and more flexible skin growth.
Microneedling cannot fix all scar types and does nothing for keloid-like scars. If you have collapsed or flat scars, though, it can help.
Through the rebuilding of collagen, your skin will even out and help with the overall appearance of the spot.
The skin can become damaged over time, commonly from the sun, leading to irregular skin pigmentation spots around your body.
Microneedling helps the body replace those damaged cells, changing the appearance of the unsightly spot and helping it blend in better with the surrounding skin.
Along with wrinkles, sagging skin often accompanies old age because the skin produces less collagen, causing the skin to lose its firmness.
Microneedling causes the body to produce more collagen in response to the tiny wounds it causes, which helps firm and tighten the skin back up.
