Age, sun damage, lifestyle and environmental factors wreak havoc on your face, leaving you with rough, uneven skin and a less-than-radiant appearance overall. While there are thousands of skin care options on the market that claim to be able to fix any skin woe, the primary reason behind your skin’s inability to bounce back from damage is the decrease in your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin that comes with age. At AKJ , we offer several treatments designed to address issues associated with aging skin, including micro-needling, a minimally invasive therapy specifically designed to increase your body’s production of collagen, leading to improvements in or elimination of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and hyperpigmentation.
Microneedling works by gently piercing the dermis using a device equipped with tiny sterile needles.These punctures are nearly invisible but are enough to activate the production of new collagen and elastin. This increase in collagen and elastin not only helps to reverse visible signs of aging but also helps to prevent further aging by triggering cell turnover.
Microneedling is a safe and effective treatment for all ages and skin types. Needle depth, speed, number of sessions and aftercare are all customized by our expert team headed by Dr. Selvam to address your specific skin type, condition and desired results.
Younger patients can maintain their youthful appearance and/or improve the appearance of acne scars, enlarged pores and uneven skin tone. Older patients can address all of the same issues, as well as advanced signs of aging and maintenance of the results achieved by other cosmetic procedures.
