The Microneedling Craze in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Microneedling is all the rage right now in Fort Lauderdale, and for good reason. This quick and easy treatment achieves one of the most coveted aesthetic improvements – new collagen production. The benefits of collagen to aged, damaged skin is well-documented, and more men and women in Fort Lauderdale are discovering the multiple benefits of microneedling.


The Importance of Collagen

Collagen is a type of protein that occurs naturally in the body. It is a building block for muscle, bones, connective tissues and skin that gives these parts of your body structure and strength. Without healthy collagen levels, these tissues break down. The collagen in our bodies is not static; it is a dynamic protein that is constantly being lost and replenished by your body. As we reach our 30s, though, our bodies produce less collagen than what is lost, and this gives way to lines and wrinkles. Exposure to UV rays breaks down collagen faster than normal, so this too contributes to an aged appearance.


How Microneedling Produces New Collagen

One of the first techniques used to replenish collagen was injections of the protein. The technique, while promising, did not provide the optimum results as expected. Microneedling is an innovative technique that relies on the body’s natural healing process. When you injure your skin, the body heals the wound by producing new collagen fibers. Microneedling is based on this concept. The tiny needles on the microneedling tool create micro-injuries to the skin which are healed by the body with new collagen fibers.


What to Expect from Microneedling

Microneedling can be used for lines, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, acne scars and many other flaws on your skin.  A topical anesthetic cream is applied to the skin so the treatment is very comfortable  Your skin may feel slightly sensitive and have a light pinkish appearance for the first day or so. Collagen production can take up to six weeks, and you see a gradual improvement in the texture and radiance of your skin.  PRP (your own platelet rich plasma) can be incorporated into your treatment for quicker recovery and optimal results.
