What is Micro-Needling?
Do you ever wonder why celebrities have flawless skin? Do you suppose it’s most likely due to a series of complicated procedures that aren’t affordable to women like you and me? Have you suffered from skin damaged by overexposure to the sun and tanning beds, or simply the effects of acne? There is a solution to meet your needs that is safe, affordable, and minimally invasive. This procedure is called Micro-Needling.
Micro-Needling is, most simply, a skin rejuvenating procedure. It is a minimally-invasive non-surgical procedure. The science behind this revolutionary procedure involves mimicking a ‘trauma’ like effect on the skin, while keeping the epidermis intact. Small needles roll over the skin and puncture it, breaking old collagen strands. This means that your body understands that your skin is being damaged, and immediately activates the healing process. The key to the significance of this procedure, is the renewal of the deeper skin layers, which entirely rejuvenates the appearance and texture of the skin.
Micro-Needling is an incredibly affordable way to regenerate the skin, compared to more expensive, invasive procedures. There are several factors that play into the cost of Micro-Needling. Elasticity of the skin and patients’ health is where the physician will make the determination on type and quality of treatments.
Micro-Needling is safe for anyone over the age of eighteen. One of the greatest things about Micro-Needling compared to other facial rejuvenation procedures is the lack of downtime. Typically the procedure takes thirty minutes to an hour to perform, and can be done in our facility on a walk-in, walk-out basis.
Here at La Belle, our office Manager Micah Guidry swears by the results of the Micro-Needling procedure.
