The skin is the largest organ on the body. As such, it’s the greatest indicator of your health. Aside from that, it’s also the main source of beauty. When the skin ages and time takes a toll on it, it’s normal to feel self-conscious. Hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation are common disorders of the skin that may be treated by micro-needling at Skin Renewal of Tulsa.
What are Hyperpigmentation and Hypopigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of the skin due to the abnormal accumulation of melanin. Unusual accumulation of melanin can be caused by side effects of pregnancy, certain health conditions, certain drugs and heavy exposure to sunlight.
Hypopigmentation, on the other hand, is the absence of melanin in the skin. This can be attributed to injury, disease or trauma to the skin.
There are various treatment options for both hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation depending on the cause. As long as the condition develops as a result of damage or trauma, most treatments take multiple months to heal. Micro-needling in Tulsa is one of the most preferred treatments, and for good reason.
How Micro-Needling Treats Pigmentation Issues
During the microneedling procedure, many tiny micro-channels are created in the skin. The tiny openings produced are therapeutic because they prompt the skin to produce collagen to treat the affected area. Because the cell membranes housing the accumulated melanin are damaged, the body gets rid of it naturally and the new collagen replaces it with new skin cells.
Micro-needling is performed in the comfort of our office in Tulsa. And unlike invasive treatments, aftercare is very minimal. What is also remarkable about this treatment is that you can notice real results after a series of treatment sessions.
Other Benefits of Micro-Needling
• Shrinks pores: By stimulating the production of collagen, microneedling makes pores plump and look shrunken.
• Makes skincare products work better: Because micro-needling creates tiny channels, it improves the absorption of most skincare products.
• Assists aging skin: Micro-needling can minimize the appearance of various signs of aging.
• Repairs visible acne scars.
The skin is a complex organ, and we must do our part to keep it healthy. Sometimes, injuries and diseases occur that cause pigmented lesions.
