This can be achieved with microneedling. Here at River Region Dermatology and Laser in Montgomery, AL, we can use this innovative treatment to help you achieve the skin you want!
What Is Microneedling?
This is a popular treatment that can help refresh and rejuvenate skin without surgery or other invasive measures. It reduces the signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles and also addresses other types of skin concerns. It can reduce the appearance of acne scarring, transform a dull complexion into a daiaint one, correct uneven texture and skin tone, and more!
A device similar to a pen is used directly on the skin where tiny needles move over the face, creating small incisions on the surface of the skin. Those tiny incisions promote the skin’s natural collagen production and trigger the skin’s healing response to improve skin from the inside out. These small needles also improve elasticity and add shape and strength to the skin.
The process itself is very simple but incredibly effective. It can take years off of your appearance and give you a more radiant complexion with just one treatment. There is no recovery time or pain associated with this type of treatment, making it a no-brainer when it comes to finding a treatment that will improve the overall appearance of the skin.

Visible signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles will also be significantly diminished following a session, giving way for brighter, more youthful-looking skin that glows!
Acne and acne scarring can also be diminished as this type of treatment promotes the healing process and will heal the cause of the acne from ths inside out. If you have a dull complexion, this type of treatment is going to correct that as well!
