Improve the health and appearance of your skin with our Microneedling Treatment. This automated microneedling device works to trigger the body’s natural immune response to promote collagen production that helps transform blemished, damaged tissue, resulting in a smoother, more vibrant appearance. Microneedling needles can penetrate the skin up to 2 mm. To give you an idea, your epidermis (the outer skin) can be as thick as 1.5 mm in areas like the soles of the feet. Your dermis – a potential problem area for melisma – is below the epidermis. In thick areas, it can be up to 3 mm thick. A 2 mm microneedling needle can usually reach the dermis to deliver those needed topicals and stimulate collagen production. It causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
There are three phases to the wound-repair process:
- Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
- Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
- Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
