With all the various beauty treatments available today, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you and your skin care needs. You would love to erase those fine lines and wrinkles that have been bothering you and would also like to freshen up your complexion. However, you’re not ready to undergo invasive treatments that require you to undergo surgery. In that case, microneedling might be the perfect treatment option for you. This treatment has been around for years, and its popularity is due to the fact that it’s effective, easy, and offers endless benefits.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling, which is sometimes referred to as collagen-induction therapy, is a treatment that, as you might have guessed, encourages your skin to increase the production of collagen. This is really where the power of the treatment comes from. Collagen is a natural protein that is found in our bodies, and it is mainly responsible for providing structure and moisture to the skin. As all of us age, we naturally slow down the production of collagen, which leads to paper-like skin, lines, and wrinkles.
How Is a Treatment Done?
The treatment uses a hand-held tool that contains very tiny needles. After prepping your skin with a lubricant, we will move the dermapen smoothing around your face. This action will create tiny holes in your skin, which you will not be able to see. The reason for these microtrauma holes is to trick your facial skin into believing that it needs healing. Your skin will then begin producing new, healthy collagen and will rush blood and nutrients to these targeted areas.
What Does It Treat?
This treatment is able to treat all of the signs of aging. Because it induces collagen production, you will find that after your treatment, all the lines and wrinkles on your forehead, around your mouth, and around your nose are greatly reduced or even eliminated altogether.
Microneedling improves the overall texture and tone of your skin, leaving it tighter and smoother than it was before. It can also reduce the look of any areas of hyperpigmentation. Last, this treatment is great at reducing the look of any scarring, but especially any scarring that is due to former acne blemishes.
Is There Downtime with Microneedling?
No, there is no downtime associated with microneedling. The entire treatment is done in our comfortable office and only takes about one hour.
