Micro-needling in Columbus, Ohio by SaVéSkin Medi Spa is based on the use of tiny needles to create micro-channels (tiny holes) in the skin. Who is it for? This treatment is appropriate for everyone regardless of age, skin type or skin color. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and in the process produces collagen and elastin. This specialized technique will refine lines and wrinkles, diminish acne scars and stretch marks, hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation.
This repair process begins and can result in a thicker dermis and softened or scars. There is little-to-no tissue destruction with micro-needling. The small channels in the epidermis can close very quickly and the skin may begin a healing response right away. Depending on the depth of the skin defect, you may see only redness or you may experience some pinpoint bleeding which can stop possibly quickly.
