As we get older, we age, and it shows in our skin imperfections. We suffer from fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and more. With new technology we can improve these skin imperfections, without surgery! This fantastic treatment is called micro-needling. Micro-needling is a minimally invasive treatment that transforms the look and feel of damaged skin to smoother, cleaner, and healthier looking skin. Micro-needling works by creating tiny wounds in your skin. These micro-wounds stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin proteins.
Micro-needling can be used to treat many skin conditions. Micro-needling improves skin texture and firmness, reduces the appearance of acne and acne scarring, minor scarring, fine lines, enlarged pores, stretch marks, and more. Micro-needling can be used on all skin types and almost anywhere on the body, even around the eyes. Micro-needling is very popular for improving scars. Scars come in all shapes and sizes. They can be found on any part of the body. Many are simply just unpleasant, but others can be devastatingly disfiguring. They can also cause emotional and mental scars. Many people suffer from acne scars and they turn to micro-needling to reverse these skin imperfections.
Dr. Kurzman uses the PiXel8-RF, which boosts the efficacy of needles with the power of radiofrequency energy and keeps you comfortable with the Arctic Chill cold-air system. Unlike other radiofrequency micro-needling, the PiXel8-RF energy is only directed to the treatment area. The restorative effects of the PiXel8-RF are like those of laser therapy, without the high cost or pain. The PiXel8-RF features single-use microneedle cartridges, with needle depth ranging from .5 millimeters all the way up to 3.5 millimeters. The needle cartridges create precise, vertical micro-wounds that facilitate more even and dramatic collagen remodeling. Dr. Kurzman will select the appropriate needle depth and amount of radiofrequency energy depending on your needs.
Depending on the area and the skin being treated, the skin can be effectively treated with a series of 2 or 3 micro-needling treatments repeated 4 – 6 weeks apart as needed. Other treatments may take between 4 to 8 micro-needling sessions 6 weeks apart. You will start to see results within 1 -2 weeks. You will have no downtime and can go back to regular activities immediately. Achieving your desired results may take a couple of months depending on the condition being treated but you will love the benefits!
As your skin remodels itself, you will notice benefits such as:
- Fewer to no lines or wrinkles.
