Micro-needling is a procedure that has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. It is a skin resurfacing procedure which utilizes tiny needles to create microscopic injuries in the skin, allowing for new collagen formation as well as creating channels for topical solutions to penetrate deeper into the skin and work more effectively. Micro-needling is an effective and relatively painless way to smooth and plump the skin while evening skin tone and texture and creating a brighter, more youthful complexion that can bring focus back to a person’s natural beauty and signature feature.

What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling is a non-invasive skin resurfacing procedure that is very popular among men and women who want to smooth and refine their complexion without needing to spend a lot of time recovering. It has been proven safe and effective, and many celebrities use it to keep their skin youthful and bright. A micro-needling procedure generally takes just a half hour or less, depending on the areas treated, and can be used on other areas of the body besides the face as well. Age spots on the chest and stretch marks on the stomach can be treated with micro-needling, among others.
Topical solutions are effective for the uppermost layer of skin, called the epidermis, but can only go so far without reaching the dermis. Micro-needling allows for topical solutions to reach the dermis through the tiny channels created by the procedure, which in turn allows the solutions to work more efficiently and effectively, leading to dramatic results. Dr. Ava and her highly experienced team work with each individual patient in order to create the best customized micro-needling treatment plan.
Benefits of Micro-Needling
Micro-needling takes a short amount of time and does not require any downtime. Following a session, patients are free to immediately resume their everyday activities and go right back to work. The skin may be red for some time before full results show, but this redness is easily and safely covered with makeup. Micro-needling can be used to treat age spots, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, stretch marks, and sagging skin. It can even be used to help remove tattoos! Collagen production is stimulated during a micro-needling treatment, which helps to renew the skin and leave patients with a more youthful appearance.
Following a micro-needling treatment, it is important to stay out of the sun as much as possible and to make sure to protect the skin with a high SPF sunblock, as the skin will be more sensitive to UV rays. Dr. Ava and her associates work with each of her patients to create a follow-up skin care regimen that will preserve the effects of micro-needling and allow patients to retain a youthful look for longer. Some patients may require more than one micro-needling session for optimal results, depending on what issues are being treated. Dr. Ava takes care to ensure that patients know what they are in for and what kind of results they can expect.
