Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka highlights how this latest cosmetic surgery procedure is used for facial rejuvenation
Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/22/2015 -- Micro-needling is a relatively new cosmetic surgery procedure which is showing some very good results in facial rejuvenation and for treating some skin conditions. It gives similar results to some lasers but with less downtime. It is highlighted in the latest (21jan15) educational video from Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka.
In his latest video Dr Lycka begins by explaining how the skin can be improved by making many tiny holes into it. This process is done using either a laser or the many tiny gold plated needles of a micro-needling machine. It stimulates the production of collagen, and also promotes healing within the skin as well as being an excellent way to get substances such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) into the skin. Not only is micro-needling showing good results for facial rejuvenation but Dr Lycka is also using it for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) management and is using it in a trial for treating cellulite which could be a great breakthrough.
