Microneedling – The Latest in Wrinkle Reduction
You may have heard recently about one of the most popular techniques for skin tightening and wrinkle reduction–microneedling. Some of you may be wondering what, exactly, this is.
Simply put, microneedling is a treatment for boosting your skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin, which are two of the most important substances for keeping your skin plump and youthful. Tiny needles, ones that are much smaller than the needles we use with dermal fillers, puncture the top layer of your skin, triggering your body to create the new collagen and elastin. Results may include improved texture and firmness, and I’ve seen terrific success in the reduction of acne scarring, pore size and stretch marks.
The microneedling device that has shown exemplary results in the neck, face and eye area is called Infini. It’s a radiofrequency (RF) device that smooths wrinkles and firms and plumps skin that has been damaged by routine aging, overexposure to the sun, acne or other stressful conditions. An alternative to other fractional anti-aging treatments, Infini requires little recuperation time while offering the results of a nonsurgical facelift. Also, it may be used on all types and colors of skin, even that which is dark or tanned. So, it’s an opportune time to consider having the treatment, after a summer in the sun.
One of the benefits of Infini is that it targets only the layers of the skin that need treating. To get the best results and the most production of new collagen, the deeper tissue under the skin needs to be heated to high temperatures. In order to protect the outside layer of skin, Infini bypasses the epidermis, keeping it cool and untouched.
The treatment is quick and easy, and recovery is more comfortable than that of traditional energy-based procedures.
