If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your skin, you don’t have to take it lying down. Dr. James Ralston at the Dermatology Center of McKinney in McKinney, TX provides micro-needling and other cosmetic procedures that can help improve your skin.

What Is Microneedling and How Does It Work?

If you even partially stay up to date on beauty trends, you’ve probably heard of micro-needling. It is used for many cosmetic treatments that help patients achieve the look they desire.

The process of micro-needling involves the use of tiny needles that prick the skin. As this occurs, the body’s natural healing process is kickstarted.

When a wound occurs – even the small ones that micro-needling causes – blood, collagen, and elastin all travel to the wound site. Collagen and elastin are two natural components that help smooth and strengthen the skin. As these components and blood flow to the wound site, new, healthier, youthful-looking skin develops, addressing a wide range of skin imperfections.

What Skin Conditions Does Microneedling Treat?

If you have any perceived flaws on your skin that you would like to be treated, there’s a chance micro-needling can take care of it for you. Some of the most common benefits that patients enjoy include those listed below.

  • Smooths the skin to minimize lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce the appearance of sun damage, helping you achieve a much more even skin tone
  • Addresses acne when used in conjunction with topical medications
  • Minimize the appearance of scars – as long as they’re not raised scars
  • Makes pores look much smaller, helping the skin to appear smoother
  • Reduces the appearance of any stretch marks and Rosacea symptoms
  • Lower costs and fewer side effects than many other methods

These are just a few benefits you can gain. However, a visit to Dr. Ralston can help you determine how exactly it can help you.
