Microneedling & The Impressive Benefits!

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles with a special tool, numbing is applied to the area to reduce any discomfort. The small wounds cause your body to make more collagen and elastin, which heal your skin and help you look younger.

The procedure works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from Microneedling cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue. This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer, too.

During the procedure, Dr. Kim makes small pricks under the skin with a pen-like tool. The pinpricks are so small that you likely won’t notice them after the procedure. Dr. Kim will move the tool evenly across your skin so that the new skin that rejuvenates will be even, too.

Microneedling is most often used on your face to target:

  • acne scars

  • age spots (also called “sun spots”)

  • fine lines and wrinkles

  • large pores

  • other types of scars

  • reduced skin elasticity

  • uneven skin tone

As always, consultations with Dr. Kim are always free. So to learn if Microneedling is best for you, book your consultation today! Give us a call at (703) 352-2800!
