Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka explains how microneedling benefits skin & scars
Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/09/2015 -- Microneedling has been gaining popularity with cosmetic dermatologists and patients alike as an effective treatment for facial rejuvenation. But it is still a relatively new procedure and is one of a number of different cosmetic surgery procedures that can be used to provide similar results. To help explain the differences between facial rejuvenation techniques, Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka has created a series of short educational videos, and the latest video, released 8th July 2015 highlights microneedling.
In his latest video Dr Lycka talks about what is microneedling, and explains how many tiny filaments are inserted into the skin, which stimulates collagen formation over time. He highlights that it is a procedure which not only helps with facial rejuvenation, and skin tightening, but it helps treat acne by shrinking down oil glands and pores. It is used to treat scars, including acne scars, and also stretch marks, and it is being used to treat hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating.
