We at Beverly Hills Dental Health and Wellness appreciate that a smile restored to health and its natural vibrancy can take years off your facial appearance. Additionally, as experts in oral and maxillofacial anatomy and function, Dr. Sanda Moldovan and the team are well-equipped to provide sophisticated anti-aging treatments that rejuvenate the appearance of the tissues around the mouth and other parts of the face.
Many factors contribute to the loss of collagen and elastin, substances made by our bodies naturally. They promote skin firmness and elasticity. The natural aging process, severe illness, external pollutants, and excessive exposure to harmful UV light from the sun’s rays or tanning can all negatively affect the natural supply and production of collagen and elastin. When these beneficial proteins are depleted, we may notice fine lines, creases, wrinkles, under-eye bags, folds, and overall dullness. Our faces no longer appear as healthy, well-rested, and glowing as they once did!
Fortunately, microneedling is a process available at Beverly Hills Dental Health and Wellness to repair and rejuvenate the skin, restoring its healthy smoothness, robust contours, unblemished surface, and glow.
Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, microneedling facilitates an improvement in the texture, tone, and overall appearance of the skin by encouraging the development of fresh collagen. The new collagen offsets the loss of protein due to aging, lifestyle, and environmental factors.
With collagen replenished, our trained estheticians support exceptional results and transformations in our valued patients’ skin, including:
Microneedling stimulates the production of collagen by creating tiny, invisible micro-injuries. Our skilled team creates these controlled injuries using a handheld device equipped with fine, microscopic needles. That pen-like device, the Dermapen®, uses a stamping action to create tiny micro-injuries or micro-channels. The skin’s ability to naturally regrow, repair, and heal itself is then encouraged. As the channels are closed through normal physiological processes, the treated skin is rejuvenated and refreshed!
We may even combine treatment with growth factors to amplify the results. These growth factors are derived from small samples of the patient’s blood, which is “prepared.” So, powerful proteins and concentrated growth factors are isolated to safely and predictably renew the skin and accelerate healing.
Microneedling can be completed quickly as a “lunchtime” procedure. The total treatment time depends on factors such as the size of the area to be treated and the number of areas to be treated. Microneedling is not just for the face; it may be appropriate for the neck, decolletage, or even other parts of the body, such as the hands.
The application of the Dermapen® is tolerated well by most patients. It is a no-downtime procedure, and patients may notice an immediate “glow” and modest redness to the treatment site, which is temporary. Depending on needs and the severity of conditions such as scars and photoaging, we may recommend additional treatment sessions. Generally, patients enjoy considerable visible improvements over the next six months as new collagen and elastin are produced.
