Laser-like results without the heat.
There is a point when even the most dedicated skincare buff turns to professional treatments to achieve their skincare goals. The next go-to next step is often laser skin resurfacing; however, the potential side effects and social downtime associated with laser means that the benefits provided by this rejuvenating treatment are not available to everyone.
Is there an alternative to laser skin resurfacing?
Fresno and Central Valley patients who wish to shrink their pores, smooth skin imperfections and fade discolorations can turn to microneedling as a safe adjunct or alternative to laser skin resurfacing. This treatment is safe for most skin types and causes no photosensitivity, meaning it can be performed year-round without any need to worry about increased risk with sun exposure. Mind you, we always recommend taking the necessary precautions to protect your skin from sun damage on a daily basis.
What makes microneedling so effective?
Microneedling mimics the actions of a laser beam, in that it creates very tiny wounds below the skin’s surface to stimulate a healing and regenerating response. This results in renewed skin and collagen synthesis. All of this is achieved without the heat trauma that is associated with laser, and which carries the added risk of side effects for darker skin tones.
As though these benefits were not enough, there is also no downtime associated with microneedling. The initial recovery from this treatment consists of some redness and mild swelling that subsides within 24 to 48 hours after the procedure.
How we make microneedling even more effective.
To realize even greater regenerative benefits, we often pair microneedling treatments with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). This entails prepping the skin with microneedling in order to infuse a PRP fibrin matrix that is rich in growth factors, expediting healing and enhancing tissue rejuvenation.
The bright, luminous and firm skin that results is why this treatment has gained such a loyal following among celebrities and the beauty media alike.
