Intradermabrasion also known as scar tattooing is a sophisticated needling technique that can only be performed by a trained professional, it promotes the body's natural production of collagen and melanocytes (skin cells that produce melanin) this process smooths out scars, wrinkles and evens skin tones and discolorations. This non-invasive procedure is long lasting and an all natural rejuvenation treatment for the skin. The results are similar to laser resurfacing although not so invasive, healing occurs in days rather than weeks. More than one treatment may be necessary to produce the best results depending, of course, on what is being treated. Scars from surgeries, tummy tucks, breast surgery and some burns can also benefit from Intradermabrasion. The skin color evens out so that the differences in tone and texture are more subtle.
Intradermabrasion in addition to producing collagen to smooth out skin lesions activates the production of melanocytes to restore a more even natural skin color to white or light scars from injuries, surgeries and stretch marks.
Intradermabrasion treats most facial scars, fine, medium, deeper facial lines, crows’ feet, large pores, dark spots on hands and face, white spots from over exposure to the sun, pock marks, pitted skin, acne scars and other skin irregularities. They all respond well to intradermabrasion. The procedure causes the body’s natural healing process to produces collagen filling in deeper lines for a smoother and even skin tone. The results are very similar to those from lasers, although this procedure is less invasive and heals more quickly, clients report being told their skin looks years younger.
