Microneedling Treatment

Who doesn’t desire youthful, healthy looking skin? The secret to achieving that goal is encouraging the rejuvenation of collagen and its growth and recuperative properties. Advanced Individualized Medicine of Naples is proud to offer microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, as a tool to address various skin conditions. The technique involves using multiple tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin and cause physical trauma.

Microneedling works the same way lasers do, only it injuring the skin mechanically instead of using heat or light. Microneedling stimulates the body’s natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, which reverses the signs of aging by prompting the derma, a deeper layer of skin, to rebuild. Clients can experience marked improvement in the skin tone and laxity, and reverse sun damage and discoloration, including hyperpigmentation. Additionally, the treatment can stimulate collagen in and around your pores, which causes them to plump and appear shrunken, if not closed. The combination of these changes results in a reduction in wrinkles, healing, and tightening of existing skin – all of which make you look and feel younger.

Benefits of Microneedling include:

  • Minimally Invasive.
  • Minimizes Acne Scarring.
  • Decreases Dark Spots or Patches on Skin (Hyperpigmentation).
  • Reduces Poor Size.
  • Increases Skin Elasticity.
  • Decreases Sun Damage, Fine Lines and Wrinkles.

What is Microneedling Therapy?

Microneedling increases the production of collagen and other healing factors by causing trauma to the skin. Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm, smooth, and stretchy texture. Aging causes the decline of collagen in the skin, contributing to wrinkles and other signs of aging. Skin can also lose collagen due to injuries, such as acne scarring, stretch marks, or other scars. Clients will experience the best results within several months of the procedure.
