How Microneedling Can Take Years off Your Face and Rejuvenate Your Skin

Microneedling Rejuvenate OBGYN Care of Houston

If you pay attention to today’s headlines, you might believe it’s a really stressful time to be alive. But if you pay attention to breaking news in medicine and aesthetics, you also realize it’s a pretty exciting time. Although no one’s yet found the Fountain of Youth, we’re getting closer every day.

Chronic stress wears you out physically and mentally, but some types of acute stress actually help you turn back the clock on your brain and body. The most cutting-edge techniques in rejuvenation therapies use controlled stress to jumpstart your skin’s repair mechanisms.

Little needles make a big difference

One of the simplest, most affordable, and most effective ways to use stress to rebuild your skin is a procedure called microneedling. At OBGYN Care of Houston, we carefully and precisely create channels in your skin with a microneedling device that features multiple tiny, sterile needles that measure just 0.5 mm to 3 mm.

Our experts are skilled at selecting the type and depth of one-use-only needle cartridges to treat various areas of your face and body. We can use microneedling to tighten, tone, and smooth your:

The effects of a microneedling treatment are similar to those of laser rejuvenation, but at a fraction of the cost.

Collagen rebuilds your skin from within

The microneedles break up tired, old strands of collagen and elastin that no longer support your skin. Your body then flushes away the debris, and sends in fibrins and stem cells to start rebuilding the skin in the microneedled channels.

During the process of collagen remodeling, your skin produces brand new, stronger strands of the building-block proteins collagen and elastin. Interlocking strands of collagen form a firm, supportive matrix that makes your skin thicker and more youthful. New elastin gives your rebuilt skin more elasticity, so it holds its shape better.

Microneedling improves the surface, too

Collagen remodeling goes a long way toward improving the look, tone, and texture of your skin. You can expect results such as:

In addition, microneedling breaks up surface hyperpigmentation, so your body can flush away excess pigment from age spots and brown spots. Over a series of treatments, your skin looks more evenly toned and free from distracting marks.

Drench your skin with nutrients

The microchannels we create reach deep into your dermis (lower skin layer). The microchannels effectively deliver topical treatments that otherwise would only reach the epidermis (outer layer).

Directly after your microneedling treatment, we drench your skin layers with antioxidant-rich serums, or even with a novel therapy called PRP, which is made from your own blood.

The experts at OBGYN Care are certified in the Vampire® procedures that utilize self-donated platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to rejuvenate your skin. We withdraw a small amount of blood from your arm, then process it in a centrifuge to separate out the healing solids called platelets. The platelets are then mixed back in with a small amount of the liquid portion of your blood (plasma).

We brush the PRP mixture on your microneedled skin to quicken the pace of healing and collagen remodeling. Platelets are rich in growth factors that accelerate wound-healing and tissue-rebuilding. Osteopaths and surgeons have used PRP for almost 10 years, and now it’s available to help your skin look younger, too.

If you’re feeling stressed about aging, find out how stressing your skin with a series of microneedling treatments will make it look and feel youthful again. Call us today for a microneedling consultation, or book one online.
