Microneedling

The skin aging process is easily recognized by its various caractheristics: sun spots, redness, roughness, lack of glow, other pigment conditions such as melasma and the most commom complain the wrinkles. Those features are a combination of incapacity to regenerate, oxidation and glication of basic strictures such as collagen, hyperfunction of some cells such as vessels and melanina and impaired cell defense. All this happen at the same time in different levels and speed and it causes a miscommunication in between key cells and layers. Do you know that the skin layers communicate and the lack or miscommunication are one the most important targets , on the other hand, more difficult to restore.

Microneedling is a powerful tool that permites restoration of dermal-epidermal healthy communication, as much as cell communication. Through microstimulation of specific growth factors and regulator factors it reestablish that communication and can add long term results to many procedures as much as it can be used as a preapration for many other to assure that when the treatment is done the communication between layers is reestablished and the procedure will have the best result possible.
