Having fresh, flawless skin is a key part of your overall self-esteem. When your skin is loose, dry, or full of acne, your confidence takes a hit.
You can try to solve the problem with every cream and serum on the market, or spend countless hours covering your flaws with makeup, or you can try a treatment that addresses your skin issues at the source.
Dr. Tanya Lawson at Inbloom Health + Medispa specializes in reviving your skin with comprehensive treatments, including microneedling. Here’s how this advanced technology safely and effectively takes your skin from drab to fab.
All about your skin issues
Your skin faces lots of responsibilities. Not only is it a huge part of your cosmetic concerns, but it also acts as a barrier between you and the world around you.
From sun damage to environmental aggressors to the inevitable effects of time, your skin has to deal with countless forces and factors working to damage it. Without a strict skincare regimen and treatments from a skilled medical professional like Dr. Lawson, you’re left with dull, damaged skin.
Some of the most common skin issues our patients struggle with include:
- Acne scars
- Large pores
- Loose skin
Often, your skin flaws stem from collagen and elastin depletion. Collagen and elastin are proteins responsible for giving your skin its structure and youthful appearance. They’re usually the first things to go as your skin takes a beating.
For every threat against your skin, we have a solution — and microneedling is one of our most popular. Here’s why.
How microneedling works
With microneedling, we intentionally inflict microscopic injuries on your skin, forcing your body into its natural healing process. It might seem counterintuitive, but the results prove otherwise. Here’s how microneedling works.
Dr. Lawson uses the only microneedling device with an FDA seal of approval — the SkinPen®.
This made-in-America device uses tiny needles to strategically perforate your skin and stimulate collagen production and healing.
To begin your session, Dr. Lawson gently cleans your face and applies a topical numbing gel to keep you comfortable. Then, she applies a coat of SkinFuse® solution to help the SkinPen move effortlessly across your skin.
As the needles pierce your skin, the micro-wounds set off a three-part healing process: inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling This process takes several weeks to complete, and results in fresher, firmer, clearer skin.
During the first phase, blood rushes to the treatment site, removing debris, disinfecting the tiny wounds, and rebuilding new, younger tissues.
Next, your skin enters the proliferation phase where new cells and blood vessels form, and your skin is flooded with oxygen and other important nutrients.
Finally, the remodeling phase. This is when your body strings together new strands of collagen and elastin to give you tighter, younger-looking skin and erase your frustrating flaws.
Your results develop completely over the next six months as your skin rebuilds itself. It’s not unusual that you could need a series of treatments to achieve the exact results you’re looking for.
Depending on your needs and goals, Dr. Lawson can combine microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) serum to give your skin an extra dosage of healing power.
There’s no need for chemical products or surgical intervention. Microneedling addresses your flaws by harnessing your body’s natural ability to heal.
