Microneedling

There are several nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments that stimulate the production of new collagen to improve the skin’s texture and tone. Microneedling at our Nashville, TN, practice is one of the most effective of them all, creating visibly tighter skin while reducing pore size and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.

How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling (sometimes called collagen induction therapy) stimulates the production of new collagen by creating tiny injuries in the skin and triggering the body’s natural healing process. Collagen is essential for having smooth, tight skin that gives you a youthful appearance. We can enhance the results of microneedling by applying serums to the treatment area, which penetrate the skin’s surface through the tiny channels.

What Does Microneedling Treat?

Microneedling’s versatility is one of the reasons it has become such a popular procedure. Microneedling is most often used on the face to target:

  • Acne scars
  • Age spots (sun spots)
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Loose skin
  • Uneven skin tone

Combining microneedling with other nonsurgical facial rejuvenation treatments, such as dermal fillers, can provide long-lasting, comprehensive results. You’ll have visibly tighter skin with improved skin texture and tone, and a clear reduction in pore size, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Is Microneedling Better Than Home Treatments?

Some of our Nashville microneedling patients ask if they can get the same results with rollers designed to use at home. Do-it-yourself home rollers don’t produce results similar to those achieved by microneedling because they barely penetrate the skin. The micro-injuries created during microneedling treatments are the key to stimulating new collagen. That doesn’t occur with home rollers. The home devices may give your skin a temporary brighter appearance, but not much more.
