2. Now, keep in mind, the operative word in micro-needling is micro because these diminutive wounds are invisible. They are microscopic.
3. Understand also, that Lacy will apply a topical anesthetic before the treatment. Most of our patients report this treatment is actually painless.
Your Body’s Beautiful Cycle of Cell Regeneration: Stimulating the Renewal of Your Sarasota Skin
The real beauty in micro-needling is that the process is natural. The microscopic wounds stimulate the natural wound healing properties of your own body.
Concerning micro-needling, Board-certified dermatologist and RealSelf contributor Sejal Shah, MD. made this statement. “The micro-injuries your aesthetician creates stimulate the body’s natural wound healing processes.”
Micro-needling Magic: It’s in the Science:
A. Firstly, you have an accelerated turnover in cellular growth.
B. Next, the resulting cell turnover causes increased collagen.
C. Likewise, your skin renews its elastin production.
D. This beautiful cycle results in a visible lessening of age-lines, scars, and sun-damage in your Sarasota Skin.
E. And Lacy will not use any heavy drugs, toxins, or scalpels.
Sarasota Skin Gets Gorgeous Results from a Micro-needling, Despite its Scary Name
There is another name for Lacy’s specialized micro-needling if the term, “needles” worries you. In New York City, Aesthetic plastic surgeon, Haideh Hirmand, MD in New York City terms the procedure “Fractora…” This is the reason.
Dr. Haideh Hirmand puts it simply. “The mini-needles will stimulate the growth of collagen…” This “refers to the building blocks of the skin. “ She adds, “Collagen is a main structural protein found throughout our body.”
She also explains the relationship between Collagen, elastin, and your Sarasota Skin. “Collagen provides the strength our tissue and organs require while elastin provides the ability to stretch and recoil.”
By the way, collagen is one of the secrets of youth and life. Additionally, it’s a building block for beautiful, healthy skin. Discover more about collagen at this resource of information.
Skin of the Movie Stars
Other specialists call this delicate procedure Collagen Induction Treatment or C.I.T. Likewise, if celebrity endorsements make you more comfortable, just take a close look at Jennifer Aniston’s skin.
Both she and Naomi Watts swear by the micro-needling treatment and its ability to restore tone and texture to the skin. Additionally, there is not very much downtime if any.
Aniston and Watts make their fortunes with their faces. Thus, we surmise they would not do it if it required a lot of pain or downtime.
What To Expect from Altiora’s Micro-needling Treatment:
Remember we mentioned a topical anesthetic cream. And it will keep you comfortable during the treatment. Most patients state that the upper lip and the forehead are a little more sensitive than other parts of the face
1. After the Microneedling treatment, you might have a little redness or swelling, but it won’t last more than a 24-48 healing period.
2. Likewise, just one session is not enough. We recommend a series of these treatments, for age-lines and acne scars. Every patient is different. You might need any number of treatments. (from 4 to 12 sessions).
