Microneedling – The Secret to Some of the Freshest Faces in Juno Beach, Florida.

Collagen is a structural protein, essential to healthy, youthful-looking skin. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, leaving skin depleted and contributing to signs of aging. Microneedling or collagen induction therapy is a means to stimulate skin regeneration naturally. Men and women are taking advantage of minimally invasive microneedling therapy at Perfect Skin Dermatology in Juno Beach, Florida.

Juno Beach, Florida dermatologist explains microneedling

A professional microneedling device is tipped with many fine needles, made of gold or surgical-quality metals. A trained aesthetician places the instrument placed against the skin, allowing needles to penetrate to a carefully calculated depth, depending on treatment goals. This creates a host of microscopic punctures through the epidermis and into the dermis, the middle layer of skin where collagen resides. The micro-wounds stimulate the body’s natural healing response – the production of fresh collagen and cellular turnover.

Treatment is well tolerated (most patients describe it as a scratchy sensation), but topical numbing cream can be applied to ensure a comfortable experience. The total prep and treatment time for a full-face session is about two hours. Though skin can be pink for a few hours, there is no downtime and you may wear makeup the next day.

Skin looks immediately radiant and firmer, and improvement continues for several weeks as collagen builds. Where there is benefit from a single treatment, usually a series of microneedling sessions is recommended for optimal results. As a Board-certified dermatologist, Susan Schroeder MD is enthusiastic about the efficacy of this treatment.

Benefits of microneedling

For anti-aging and overall skin rejuvenation, collagen induction therapy effectively:

  • Fills fine lines
  • Smooths wrinkles
  • Plumps, thickens, and firms skin
  • Shrinks pores
  • Lightens age spots and brightens skin tone
  • Contributes to a more youthful appearance

As an acne scar treatment, microneedling breaks up irregular tissue and replaces it with an even meshwork of collagen fibers, flattening scarring and lightening discoloration. In some cases, microneedling is recommended for stretch marks removal.

PRP for added benefit

Microneedling can be combined with the application of PRP or platelet-rich plasma – growth factors from your own blood. This treatment supercharges collagen production and imparts a natural glow that lasts for several weeks.

Dr. Susan explaining about the Microneedling
Is dull and lax skin your problem? Restore the glow with our PRP and microneedling combined therapy.

Microneedling is something, it’s a procedure that is designed to induce new collagen formation and to remodel the skin. It’s, it’s, great for acne scarring for people that are worried that their students becoming more dull. It’s a little more LAX. They’re losing collagen. They’re developing wrinkles. People that have what we call dyschromia or brown spots and just a discoloration of the skin. It’s good for that as well. This is a procedure that, as I said, it’s been out for about 10-15 years. So, in this instance we developed, we delivered PRP platelet rich plasma, which contains which is activated growth factors and it will, in addition to making those micro channels to deliver those products, you’re actually causing controlled damage, which causes your skin to activate, healing cascades, healing processes, and lay down new collagen. It’s a controlled remodelling. So, most people will see some improvement with just one. You’ll see a brightening of the skin, more of a glowy complexion, smoother complexion, but it just depends on how much remodelling you want to do. People that are really trying to reduce wrinkles or acne scarring will want to do three or four perhaps once a month or so, so to get to induce those, those, changes. Those changes will continue for six months after treatment. The, the, skin will continue to remodel. We do have patients that love the results that are happy with the way they turned out with the micro needling and then they will do one treatment maybe once a year or every six months just for maintenance.
