Dealing with issues in your skin can be frustrating and it can stop you from participating in activities that you may really enjoy. It can be difficult to deal with texture issues, wrinkles, and fine lines, and you may not be happy with your appearance. When you’re looking for treatments that are minimally invasive and give you the best results without the use of chemicals, look no further than microneedling. Dr. James Ralston at Dermatology Center of McKinney in McKinney, TX, can explain how microneedling can help your skin and what it is.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure offered by your dermatologist in McKinney, TX, that is also known as collagen induction therapy and can help stimulate the production of collagen in your skin, giving you a natural solution to wrinkles and issues with texture. This can help your skin become firm, giving you a more even look and reducing any issues with sagging that you might experience.

This procedure uses a small device that contains very small needles. This device is gently guided over your skin and will then cause microscopic pricks to your skin. This helps your skin generate collagen and in turn, will generate healthy, fresh skin. This is a great way to deal with early signs of aging and to treat any wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars, or fine lines.

Microneedling is an effective way to get the skin that you’re looking for without the use of surgery. There’s usually little or no downtime after a treatment and your results will continue to improve over the next 6 months. Depending on how large the area being treated is, the whole procedure should take about 2 hours.
