MicroNeedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, has taken the skin care industry by storm. Although this is a treatment that has been in use for a few decades, it is now considered to be one of the most cutting-edge treatments available for restoring the texture and tone of the skin on the market today. It can also be more effective than laser treatments. Yes, you read that right!
At the ABQ Skin Care & Acne Clinic, we are changing the game on eliminating acne scars and rejuvenating the skin with our very strategic, and customized MicroNeedling sessions. Each skin condition and scar type is always taken into consideration at the beginning of every session. We do not believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Doesn’t that make sense?
This is how it works. Our MicroNeedling tool glides over the epidermal layer of the skin to create tiny, micro-punctures in the skin which stimulates elastin and collagen production. This triggers the body’s own natural healing process to begin restoring the micro-injuries and the damaged skin cells responsible for all acne scars such as:
• -Ice-pick scars – these are deep, narrow, pitted scars.
• -Rolling scars – broad depressions with a sloping edge.
• -Boxcar scars – broad depressions with sharply defined edges.
• -Atrophic scars – flat, thin scars or depressed scars (anetoderma)
MicroNeedling also helps to remove red, pink and brown pigmentation, wrinkles, uneven texture, and sun damage. Additionally, our clients experience a noticeable reduction in pore size and firming of the skin.
The recovery time after MicroNeedling is minimal. It leaves the skin looking slightly flushed on the first day, and less each day thereafter. No need to take off time for this treatment and makeup can be worn the following day. Whereas laser treatments can often take weeks to recover from and can feel extremely uncomfortable as well. Moreover, almost any area of the face and body can be MicroNeedled for total skin transformation.
If you choose to have MicroNeedling done it is important to schedule your treatment with a fully licensed facility to ensure all standards of sanitation and sterilization are being met.
It is imperative to perform MicroNeedling on 100% acne free skin. If any active blemishes are penetrated, this can quickly spread bacteria and detrimentally affect other areas of the skin. If you are still struggling with active acne or a few pesky, consistent blemishes, we truly suggest booking our Initial Consult & Acne Treatment program to identify your acne triggers and begin utilizing a customized acne-fighting skin care regimen to help achieve acne free skin first.
