Microneedling treatments offer skin rejuvenation for Exton, PA patients

Our team of skincare specialists strive to help clients improve their facial or physical appearance. At Allure MediSpa we combine cutting edge technologies and with tried and true treatments to give patients healthy skin. Located in Exton, PA, Drs. Paul Kim and Gary Wingate are dedicated to offering quality skincare treatments including microneedling treatments for skin rejuvenation.

What is microneedling?

Also called skin needling or collagen induction therapy, this treatment is gaining attention for its skincare and aesthetic benefits. Thanks to advancements in medical technology, these treatments are more tolerable for patients and more effective. At Allure MediSpa, we offer this procedure to treat the face and also for hair loss.

The procedure is designed to promote collagen and elastin production. Using several sterile, fine tip needles as part of a motorized pen, the speed and depth of the needles are controlled so the treatment can be customized for each patient. The needles pierce the skin triggering collagen and elastin as the skin heals itself.

Skin benefits 

The effects of microneedling treatments are similar to a fraxel laser. Both cause trauma to the upper layer of the dermis. However, the manner in which the trauma is caused and the way the skin heals are different. Microneedling has several advantages.

  • Although both treatments stimulate collagen production, a laser creates linear, scar-like collagen. Microneedling creates a basketweave pattern allowing the skin to maintain a natural, smooth appearance.
  • Less downtime and healing are needed with microneedling because the epidermis remains intact.
  • Microneedling is used to treat fine lines, wrinkles and scars and to improve skin tone and texture. Lax skin can also be treated.
  • Patients reap the benefits of skin improvement after just one treatment. However, for optimal results, we recommend a series of treatments.
