We’ve all had a scratch of some sort where our body formed a scab as part of the healing process. Typically, we don’t think much of it and ignore the fact that the scab is actually protecting our skin while new skin forms underneath. While a scab is just one example of our how our body renews itself, our body’s ability to regenerate is simply amazing and can benefit us in so many other ways.
Who would have thought that our body’s ability to regenerate could also help with scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, fine lines and pigmentation? Well, it can! Each of us notice when we have undesirable things happening with our skin, especially wrinkles and stretchmarks. The good news is that we don’t have to continue worrying about these thanks to micro-needling!
Micro-needling uses the body’s ability to regenerate to correct many of those things that we hate about our skin. It tightens, lifts and rejuvenates skin by creating micro-damage which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and by normalizing numerous skin functions. This may sound bad, but it’s really not. Micro-needling is completely harmless t
o your skin and by activating regrowth and repair, it minimizes the appearance of pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and wrinkles. Another great benefit of micro-needling is that the needles create channels in the skin which serve as a pathway for topical serums used along with micro-needling, allowing them to be absorbed more quickly.
There have been several studies conducted regarding micro-needling. Many have found that dry micro-needling, meaning no serum is used during treatment, is not as affective. Those who receive dry micro-needling wait roughly 6 weeks to see any results which is far less when micro-needling is done with serums. At Alazzo Med Spa, we understand how important it is to get desired results quickly so we use serums for more timely results. Most patients see results after the first treatment and notice more lasting and significant results after 4-6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart).
Other studies have been done focusing on the reduction of scars. A study done by Dr. Imran Majid of Cutis Laser Clinic, showed that 34 of 36 patients receiving micro-needling treatments had a reduction in the severity of their scarring by one or two grades and more than 80% of patients viewed their treatments as excellent.
