All of us want fantastic looking skin. We want to look our best no matter our age. We want to have skin that is smooth, soft and free of blemishes. There are a lot of ways to go about getting blemish free skin, but one of the best ways is micro-needling.

Micro-needling is a medical treatment that can help you greatly improve the condition of your skin. It can be used to treat mild to moderate acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, stretch marks and wrinkles. If your skin is rough and dull, this procedure can improve its texture. For many, it is just what they need to go from being embarrassed about the way their skin looks to loving the way it looks.

Soon after your treatment is finished, you will start to see a marked improvement in your skin. Most people notice that their skin looks more radiant after about a week or so. The full results of the procedure will show themselves within a couple of months as collagen production reaches its peak. Many patients see optimal results after more than one treatment. We will help you learn everything about the procedure and how many micro-needling sessions you will need during your consultation.

You may be wondering what the micro-needling procedure is like. The very first step always involves cleaning the skin. Then it will be numbed. A product that contains vitamin C serum or a collagen stimulating product may also be applied to the skin before treatment. Then a small, single-use pen will be passed over the skin.

This step offers two major benefits. First, it makes the products that were applied to your skin right before treatment more effective, since they will be more easily absorbed into the skin. Second, the process encourages the body to begin to heal the treated area by producing more hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin. All of these substances help to improve the appearance and the condition of your skin, and they will continue to be produced long after treatment is finished. You will see that any topical creams that you apply will be more effective. Your skin will enjoy improved blood circulation and collagen production.

We would love to tell you in person about all of the benefits that you can receive from the micro-needling treatment. At the Plateroti Center for Integrative Medicine in Templeton, we take the well-being and care of our patients seriously. Please schedule a consultation with us to learn how this treatment can be used to help you skin look its absolute best.
