Microneedling in McKinney, TX
Microneedling, also known as dermarolling, is one of the most innovative techniques in the medical aesthetics space. It involves piercing the outer layers of skin with hundreds of pinpricks. All of those tiny wounds stimulate healing of the skin. Microneedling is one of the best, most proven ways to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is important in the connective tissues within your skin. It’s one of the things that keeps your skin looking plump and supple.
All the tiny channels opened by the needles also make serums more effective. When you get a treatment, typically a vitamin C or hyaluronic acid serum is applied first. These can have amazing effects when they penetrate more deeply.
A surprising alternative to mass-produced serums is to use the body’s own growth factors. This is done with the vampire facial, or platelet-rich plasma. For this type of microneedling treatment, your own blood is drawn. It’s spun to separate the platelet-rich plasma. This is applied to the face, and then the dermarolling happens.
The small channels allow the platelets and their accompanying growth factors to penetrate more deeply into the skin. They’re key in stimulating the production of more collagen and elastin. These proteins become depleted as we age, which is one reason the skin becomes thin and crepe-y.
Dermarolling takes only about 30 minutes per session. Recovery time is almost nil. Because of the sanitary procedures in the office and the small holes, the risk of infection is almost non-existent.
Microneedling is one of the best, most effective medical spa treatments to refresh skin. For best results, it should be done monthly. Microneedling in McKinney is readily available at Skin Med Spa. Reach out today by phone or online contact form for more information.
