Microneedling in Philadelphia, PA
Improve the Appearance of Wrinkles, Uneven Texture and Tone, and More at our Bryn Mawr Spa
Collagen induction therapy, better known as microneedling, has become a favorite in skin care treatments—and for good reason. It triggers the body's own natural regenerative and healing processes to give the face a rejuvenated youthful appearance. Microneedling at our Philadelphia–area Dermatology spa does this by accelerating the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. These are the two fundamental building blocks of skin tissue, as they maintain its health, function, and elasticity.
Our patients find microneedling to be a practical method for looking younger, as it provides comprehensive facial skin rejuvenation without requiring downtime. It is also safe and effective for treating skin in sensitive areas, such as around the eyes and the upper lip.
How Can Microneedling Improve the Appearance and Health of My Skin?
Microneedling tends to be effective for most skin types, with the added benefits being very affordable and requiring little to no associated post–treatment downtime.
Each session at Cirillo Cosmetic Dermatology Spa is tailored to your specific facial skin profile. The total number of microneedling sessions required depends on your unique concerns and desired results.
Some of the many benefits you can achieve with microneedling include:
- Reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Improvement in acne and acne scars
- Regulation of excess sebum
- Less visible pores
- Reduced hyperpigmentation and dullness
- Increased moisture and elasticity
- Improvement in skin tone and texture
- Improvement in the appearance of any surgical or traumatic scars
- Maximized absorption of nutrient–rich topical skin care products
What to Expect from Microneedling
Microneedling involves tiny needles gently placed into the skin on the areas to be treated. The needles are precisely controlled to create micro–injuries, which kickstart the body's own repair and regenerative processes to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. The new healthier skin that emerges is smoother with increased pliability and elasticity.
The regenerative trigger of microneedling is just one of the ways the process can benefit your skin. Topical skin care products can be applied for increased absorption, since the micro–injuries create channels allowing products to more deeply penetrate into the skin.
Immediately after a microneedling treatment, patients typically notice that their skin has a bright redness and glow. The redness usually disappears within one to two days. The beneficial effects continue to improve over the course of several weeks after a treatment, and the accelerated elastin and collagen production can last up to six months.
