Stem Cell Rejuvenation (Microneedling)
Dr. Liu has helped thousands of individuals achieve their cosmetic goals and discover renewed confidence.
What is Stem Cell Rejuvenation (MicroNeedling)?
Stem Cell Rejuvenation (MicroNeedling) is one of the most popular options for non-surgical skin rejuvenation. Microneedling uses a handheld pen-like devise with several tiny needles in the tip. The pen-like devise is rolled over the skin, allowing the needling to penetrate to a specific depth below the surface and create microchannels that are effectively invisible to the naked eye.
The penetration by the needles causes a process known as Collagen Induction Therapy to occur. This process involves the coagulation and tightening of existing collagen fibers to smooth aging skin and stimulates the skin’s natural healing process to increase overall collagen production (which improves strength and shape of the skin). Over time, as new collagen is produced and makes its way to the surface of your skin, the benefits of the treatment begin to appear, including:
What you should expect before, during, and after the procedure?
Stem Cell Rejuvenation (MicrnoNeedling) is performed on an outpatient basis in Dr. Liu’s office. Numbing cream is applied to the area treated to ensure that the patient is comfortable throughout the procedure. The two most common treatment areas are the face and neck.
Once the numbing cream is applied and effect, Dr. Liu will use the handheld pen-like devise and make several passes over the skin. The microneedles that penetrate the skin will encourage the Collagen Induction Therapy to occur.
While your skin is likely to appear flushed or slightly red (which is a good indicator that the healing process has begun), you will be able to immediately return to normal activity. Any post-treatment redness should subside after a few days. After completing the treatment regimen that you have discussed with Dr. Liu, you will begin to fully enjoy your smoother, softer, more radiant skin.
