Many dermatologists offer natural and holistic treatment options focusing on organic skin care for hard-to-treat skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis and inflammation. As your skin reflects your internal health, dermatologists want their patients to be as healthy in both how they look and feel. For patients looking to treat common skin flaws without invasive treatments or medications, micro-needling provides a naturopathic solution and improvement to the appearance of the skin. 

Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles to create wounds in the skin for your body to heal. The goal is for the body to stimulate natural collagen and elastin to rejuvenate the skin. Micro-needling benefits include reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scar or other flattened scar treatment, sun damage and sunspot removal or reduction, the shrinking of pores, lightening of stretch marks, reducing the inflammation and irritation of rosacea, clearing up acne, and boosting the effectiveness of topical products to make them more effective. 

If you are interested in micro-needling, seek a board-certified dermatologist. Dermatologists recommend micro-needling but advise that patients use caution about trying the procedure out for themselves with home remedies or over the counter devices due to safety and efficacy reasons. Dermatologists are trained in all areas of the skin as well as the pros and cons of what cosmetic treatments are best suited for your unique skin type and conditions you wish to treat. Micro-needling is best performed by a dermatologist with expertise in the procedure. Your doctor will also prescribe a serum or topical solution to work with your skin after the procedure to ensure your skin is hydrated while the body heals to provide you with a radiant, fresh glow.
