Microneedling Vancouver sounds like an intimidating procedure, no thanks to the word “needle” in its name. Yes, numbing cream is involved, but the procedure is actually minimally-invasive — and comes with a host of skin-boosting benefits that go beyond a basic facial.
“You’re building collagen and thickening the skin, so instead of looking good for a few days after your traditional facial, your skin is smooth and radiant for much longer,” explains Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon Sheila Nazarian, M.D.
What are the benefits of microneedling?
“Microneedling can be used to help with a variety of concerns,” Stevenson explains. “The treatment can minimize pore size and improve skin quality and texture,” plus help reduce the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, and even fine lines.
Does it work?
“Yes,” she says, “when used for the right considerations and in qualified hands, such as a board-certified dermatologist, it really works.” However, Dr. Stevenson adds, it’s not a one-stop-shop procedure. “It often requires a series of treatments, and in my own practice I often use it in combination with other technologies to have the best possible improvement in things like acne scars and stretch marks.”
