You may be familiar with microneedling treatments. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, involves the use of fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin. This may not sound appealing, but this minimally invasive treatment when done in-office by our trained aestheticians can be very effective. These mini injuries created by the needles stimulate the body’s natural wound healing processes. This results in cell turnover with increased collagen and elastin production, therefore reversing as well as preventing visible signs of aging.
And we have more good news as we can take this process a step further. For a firmer appearance, we offer microneedling treatments using Sculptra, or as we have named the treatment, Microsculpt. Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved product that consists of microscopic particles which prompt your body to make new collagen. Restoring lost collagen aids in smoothing skin by increasing volume gradually, resulting in a natural correction.
The Microsculpt Procedure Is Available at Eastside Skin Care & Laser Center
During the Microsculpt procedure, the Sculptra is gently rubbed onto the skin, just the way you would put on a serum. The substance is absorbed into the dermis through the micro-injuries, created by the microneedling, which then builds collagen to produce thicker skin with fewer wrinkles and less laxity. Adding a collagen stimulator to your microneedling treatment has also been shown to improve acne scars. A huge bonus is that the effects of Sculptra can last up to 2 years. So, who’s in for this microneedling on steroids treatment?
If you are already treating fine lines with injectables of Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin, and using fillers, this Microsculpt treatment is like the icing on the cake. Smoothing and brightening your skin will enhance these other treatments by creating a more youthful, glowing appearance.
Just starting on your skincare investment and don’t know which procedure to start with? Microsculpt can be a great place to start if skin texture and tone are the areas you wish to address.
