You have a choice in scar management. Dermagraphics by Miller offers MCA!
Multitrepannic Collagen Actuation also known as MCA, or Dry Needling is a non-surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of scars. This procedure stimulates collagen production and elastin in the skin without damaging it. The dry needle abrasion causes micro-trauma and micro-inflammation. Your body will respond by sending blood to the area for healing. Blood platelets then release clotting factors, cytokines, and essential growth factors. Fibroblasts make and deposit new extracellular matrix with collagen and elastin. As your skin repairs itself, new collagen builds up in the Papillary Dermis just below the surface. Repeated MCA sessions gradually and continually encourage new collagen. I use this technique to flatten elevated scar tissue and relax fibrous scars caused by burns or accidents. Melanin is also stimulated by this technique naturally blending lightly colored scars with surrounding skin.
The results of MCA are generally seen within a month of the first procedure. MCA is typically done in a series of sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart, with minimal down time.
