Microneedling Is Making Headlines

Microneedling therapy is making headlines and it’s no wonder! Skin rejuvenation results achieved from microneedling therapy are comparable with those achieved by lasers without the extensive downtime. Moreover, microneedling therapy is safe for all skin colors, unlike lasers.  Haven’t yet heard about microneedling? It is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. Results include improved skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.

At EAST Integrative Medicine, we use our Eclipse MicroPen® along with a topical anesthetic, so there is little to no pain during the treatment.  And we get great results.  Don’t just take our word for it – take a look at the articles below to see how micro-needling is creating a buzz in the skincare industry.  Ready to make an appointment? Book online today and start noticing a difference in your skin! Want to read more? See the headlines below – full article is available by clicking the title.
