Microneedling With Sculptra Boosts Collagen
When it comes to anti-aging skin treatments, microneedling is simply one of the most effective, minimally invasive options out there. It makes a great choice for medical spa newbies and seasoned veterans alike. This treatment on its own is a powerful way to stimulate your body into make new skin cells, but when combined with other injectables like Sculptra, we can take your results to the next level. Let’s learn more about microneedling with Sculptra and how it can transform your skin.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Simply put, microneedling is a treatment performed with a device that makes micro-injuries in the skin. As a result, the body sends powerful repairing agents to the area to heal the injuries. In addition, you start producing more collagen and elastin to aid in skin repair. There are a variety of platforms on the market, but we prefer the SkinPen system. Its variable depth and ultra-precise handheld device yields incredible results with very little downtime.
What Are The Benefits of Microneedling With Sculptra?
Microneedling visibly improves your skin in just a few weeks. Plus, results continue for months as your body’s increase in collagen and elastin production creates new skin cells that make their way to the skin’s surface. For an extra boost, we can accelerate and enhance your results with the use of Sculptra in combination with microneedling. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible synthetic substance that stimulates collagen production. It is used to treat deep lines on the face as an injectable, but we also utilize it as a topical serum just after microneedling treatment. This way, it’s able to penetrate the skin’s surface through the tiny holes made by the SkinPen device. Sculptra further enhances the body’s collagen-making response.
