There are endless skin care products on the market that are designed to treat the signs of aging but many show very slim results. That’s because, no matter how carefully you apply a cream or a serum, topical skin products only treat the top layer of your skin. And many of the symptoms of aging are actually caused by changes in the dermis, the layer of skin that lies below the skin’s surface. But, there’s a new anti-aging treatment available today that is able to treat this deep layer of skin: microneedling. So, how exactly does it work?
Microneedling is a simple and virtually pain-free cosmetic treatment that works by naturally stimulating collagen growth deep within your skin. During the treatment, the microneedling device is used to puncture the skin with tiny, sterile needles. These needles can both stimulate the skin’s natural repair process and help deliver products deep into the skin. This stimulation creates new collagen, which firms the skin and reduces many of the signs of aging, and the deep product delivery gets specialized treatments through to the dermis.
You may have seen a rise in topical collagen products on the market but you should be aware that collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the top layer of skin, so these are not effective. It’s also important to remember that not all kinds of Microneedling are created equal. Some common Microneedling devices, like dermal rollers, are rougher than others on the skin surface. These devices may actually cause more harm than good! So, which kind of Microneedling is the best?
At Z Center for Cosmetic Health, Dr. Michael Zadeh uses a revolutionary new Microneedling tool to give his patients the best possible results. This device contains 24 karat gold needles, each of which is smaller than a strand of hair. Furthermore, each of these needles have carefully constructed channels within them which allow accurate delivery of skin products into the dermal layer. Using the specialized Microneedle pen allows Dr. Zadeh to deliver specialized products deeper into the skin with no absorption issues, pain, bleeding, bruising, or downtime. No other microneedling device can offer these benefits.
Microneedling is incredible when used to treat the signs of aging but it actually has many uses. This is because the treatment always stimulates collagen growth but, when it’s applied with Dr. Zadeh’s specialized microneedling device, it can also deliver vitamin complexes, growth factors, antioxidants, Botox, dermal fillers, and stem cells. With a specialized cocktail of skin products chosen by Dr. Zadeh, microneedling can treat fine lines, wrinkles, oily skin, acne scars, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, melasma, and can help with general facial rejuvenation.
Getting a microneedling treatment with Dr. Zadeh is simple. First, the skin is cleansed, and your specialized treatment blend is delivered via the microneedle pen, which only takes about 15 minutes. The treatment does not require any topical anesthetics, as it is virtually pain free. After your microneedling treatment, you’ll experience an immediate tightness of the skin. You may experience some mild redness in the 24 hours after the procedure, but this will resolve naturally. There is no downtime needed after microneedling— you can return to your normal activity right away.
