Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, involves the use of a tool that has tiny needles which make little pricks in the top layer of the skin using a instrument called a Dermapen, which is considered minimally invasive.
This treatment is also known as collagen induction therapy because it’s known for boosting collagen production in the skin, which can make it beneficial for a number of skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling actually induces the production of new collagen in the skin, known as neocollagenesis.
The major benefits of Microneedling include:
Reduces Wrinkles and Fine Lines:
The loss of elastin and collagen cause thinning, sagging skin, and facial wrinkles. Micro-needling stimulates the production of natural elastin and collagen that reduces wrinkles and fine lines. You’ll have younger looking skin with no downtime. Your pocketbook will like it too – this procedure is much less expensive than laser and light treatments.
Micro-needling is proven to diminish the look of surgery and acne scars. This procedure breaks down old tissue and triggers the production of new elastin and collagen for healthier skin.
Reduces Appearance of Stretch Marks:
Stretch marks are extremely difficult to treat and very few cosmetic treatments can improve their appearance. Micro-needling, however, has been shown to improve the appearance of stretch marks, especially when combined with other treatments such as fraxel and other laser treatments.
Prevents Signs of Aging:
Micro-needling effectively and powerfully stops the early signs of aging as well as preventing new wrinkles and fine lines from occurring. When combined with consistent use of corrective antioxidant serums, this procedure aids in brightening your skin that results in a youthful glow. You can’t get that from home treatments or other cosmetic products!
