Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), is a safe and effective non-surgical treatment for improving skin quality and to improve aging skin. Elite Medical & Wellness Center offers treatments to the residents of Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach, New Smyrna Beach, Deland, and Port Orange that help with wrinkles around the mouth or eyes; broken blood vessels on cheeks or nose; acne scars on the face or chest; skin laxity in neck area from aging effects such as sun damage without the cosmetic surgery
At our health & wellness clinic near you, we offer microneedling at various depths so patients can choose their desired level of penetration into underlying layers of skin tissue up to 2 millimeters deep beneath your surface epidermis layer which may result in increased collagen production and new skin cell regeneration.
A treatment session at Elite Medical & Wellness Center is usually 90 minutes long with multiple procedures. The benefits of microneedling are reduction in the appearance of fine lines, fine wrinkles, dark spots, acne scars, large pores fine lines, and stretch marks; improvement in overall texture and elasticity to your skin's surface due to the healing process after our therapy program.
Microneedling works in 3 different stages:
In this stage, the platelets that were activated by the piercing of dermal tissue release cytokines and growth factors which act as signals for body's immune system to send in cells such as neutrophils and macrophages. Neutrophils clear debris while macrophages attack foreign substances during this process called angiogenesis where blood supply increases allowing granulation processes (creation of fresh new cellular materials) to begin.
In this stage, the skin is constantly repairing itself with new cells which are making more elastin and collagen.
In this next phase of healing, called "proliferation," fibroblasts (cells that make up much of the dermis) keratinocytes, and epidermal cells continue to divide in order to populate areas where there was damage or scarring. These newly-made cells secrete growth factors as well as an extracellular matrix made from fibers like elastin and collagen III.
The “shrink-wrap” effect is a phenomenon that occurs in this stage of wound healing. It starts with the newly formed dermal tissue and matures into stronger collagen I, which causes the skin to retract, tightening it like shrink wrap around an object for protection against outside elements. Resulting in stronger, tighter skin.
Our Microneedling with Radiofrequency is FDA approved for the treatment of acne scars and stretch marks. Over the course of three sessions spaced one month apart, this treatment will help to provide you with stronger skin. Our Microneedling with RF treatment in Port Orange is completed by using a Radiofrequency device that stimulates collagen production and improves elastin in your skin. The result? Stronger, brighter skin!
Microneedling with RF is a safe, effective procedure that can be used for the treatment of skin rejuvenation, acne scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, or any other area where you want more elasticity in the skin.
Microneedling activates your body's natural healing process. It causes your skin to produce collagen, elastin, and other necessary proteins that allow for the creation of new tissue cells and increase skin laxity.
Microneedling has been used successfully by dermatologists as an alternative treatment option or when laser therapy is unavailable because it heals faster and with less discomfort than lasers at comparable cost points.
The amount of microneedling sessions that you will need will depend on the area being treated, your skin type, and desired results. This is also dependent on whether you are using radiofrequency in your microneedling session or not.
Microneedling treatments can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. The number of sessions you may need will also depend on your treatment goals, the severity of any skin damage or dyschromia (such as melasma and hyperpigmentation), and how quickly your body heals.
