Hundreds of tiny pin pricks going into your skin might sound like the beauty
version of a torture chamber, but it could just be the BEST thing that ever happened to your face
Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin. This minimally invasive treatment is incredibly effective. The micro-injuries you create stimulates the body's natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, therefore reversing as well as preventing signs of aging. (It works the same way lasers do, only you're injuring the skin mechanically instead of using heat or light.) Microneedling has become hugely popular.
The primary appeal of microneedling is its ability to stimulate growth of collagen and elastin, which is the key to new, youthful-looking skin. Some doctors would even go so far as to say that the procedure is the most powerful way to stop aging in its tracks and prevent new fine lines and wrinkles from forming. With its ability to trigger the generation of new skin cells, just a few sessions of microneedling will noticeably reduce fine lines, crow's feet, and deep wrinkles on the forehead. Microneedling is able to utilize the body's own natural healing processes, so the results are very natural. "There is minimal downtime. I recommend it as a maintenance for people who are trying to ward off the signs of aging.
Microneedling can help with the following problems as well:
- Sun Damage and Hyperpigmentation
- Reduction in Pore size
- Stretch Marks
- Microneedling can be done on ALL parts of the body.
For Best Results a series of treatments is suggested. Although with one treatment you will see improvement and want to continue.
