It sounds like some ancient, underground skin rejuvenating technique when you first hear of Microneedling, used for centuries to smooth the skin of ancient Rome, Egypt or China’s rich and strong royalty. Just to lose its momentum in popularity over the years, as modern medicine brought us more advanced, complicated and costly cosmetic procedures, something of a legend, like bathing in milk-fascinating, simple, and actually successful-. Although Microneedling is a simply fantastic skin rejuvenator, however, it has only really been brewing into the latest “miracle” skin treatment for the past 25 years or so today!Learn more about us at Coolsculpting
Microneedling is one of today’s plastic surgery’s hottest and most popular office-based skin rejuvenation techniques. In reality, this non-destructive, naturopathic-like treatment harnesses the very power of the skin to rejuvenate, smooth and tone itself naturally!
Dr. Michael Pistor recognised the possibilities for “percutaneous collagen induction” back in the 1950’s, finding that the skin could be “stimulated” to increase its collagen content with needles. Nevertheless, it took another 30-40 years to understand this breakthrough for its potentially enormous functional significance and the powerful usefulness it might have for cosmetic purposes.
Dr. Phillip Simonin used a “electroidopuncture” method successfully in the 1980s to trick scar tissue into smoothing and thinning itself without having to resort to any potentially dangerous lasers, destructive chemicals, injections or surgery.
Montreal plastic surgeon Dr. Andre Camirand came up with a fascinating concept in the 1990s to treat problematic facial wounds-by tattooing them with flesh-colored ink, he camouflaged the scars! Imagine his surprise when he found that the scars improved smoothness, flatness, and invisibility greatly, whether or not he used pigment in the tattoo needles! Around this same time, South African dermatologist Dr. Des Fernandez revealed a special needling “roller” that he had created for his patients at an international plastic surgery symposium. He showed plastic surgeons with this needle roller alone for the first time ever that they could effectively and easily smooth out the fine lines and wrinkles around the lips (so-called “smoker’s lines”)-and with some very good long-term results! No lasers, no additives, no surgery, no injections. Just this interesting method of “needling” coaxes the skin to tighten and smooth on its own!
