Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy), is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that pricks tiny holes into the skin over the to stimulate the production of two natural proteins, collagen and elastin, for tighter, healthier looking skin.
Microneedling for Younger Looking Skin
When it comes to fighting the signs of aging and maintaining tighter, smoother, younger looking skin, collagen is the primary ingredient. As the skin ages, it produces less collagen, which leads to the classic signs of aging – sagging, loss of firmness and fine lines and wrinkles. Although there are millions of products that claim to be packed with collagen, nothing beats the real thing when it comes to getting the best results.
How it Works
Tiny needles are attached to a pen that then make miniature puncture holes in your skin. This microinjury stimulates the skin’s natural healing response by producing more collagen and elastin which are two nutrients that boost the appearance and health of your skin. The microchannels also allow for deeper penetration of serums and other skin care products which can enhance the products effectiveness. Microneedling requires a series of treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimum results as the body slowly regenerates collagen and elastin in the treatment area over time.
