About Bingham Healthcare Microneedling

Microneedling is one of the hottest new skincare trends and one of the best things to happen to your face. It’s now available through our skincare specialists at Bingham Healthcare Dermatology Center.

Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin. It stimulates your body’s natural wound healing process, resulting in cell turnover at an accelerated rate, and increased collagen and elastin production, reversing as well as preventing the signs of aging.

The procedure reduces fine lines and deep wrinkles. It stimulates the growth of collagen and elastin which is the KEY to new, youthful-looking skin. Proponents say this method is one of the most powerful ways to stop aging in its tracks and prevent fine lines, crow’s feet, and deep wrinkles on the forehead. It repairs, diminishes, and in some cases eradicates visible scars. In a study on the effects of the treatment, nearly 100 percent of acne-scarred participants reported a marked improvement in the visibility of their acne scars. And even for severe acne scarring, microneedling is twice as effective as other treatments.

For those of you who have loved the sun a little too much in the past, microneedling is a promising treatment to reverse sun damage and pigmentation. It’s a powerful treatment for the blotchy, brownish facial pigmentation that can appear on the skin. Collagen is the most vital way to improve the look of the skin, going way beyond reducing wrinkles. By stimulating collagen growth, you can reverse sun damage and discoloration including hyperpigmentation that comes with melasma. It also helps add a glow to your skin.

The treatment is also impressive in its ability to tighten loose skin attributed to aging, offer a simple and effective treatment with minimal side effects and downtime.
