Some women and men might be apprehensive about anti-aging procedures for fear there might be pain involved. Microneedling is the ideal gateway to the anti-aging world because it is virtually pain-free. Improvement in skin appearance is almost immediate.
WHAT IS IT?
Collagen induction therapy, or microneedling as it is more commonly known, is the process of stimulating elastin and collagen production naturally. By stimulating the production of these proteins, the skin looks fuller, smoother and younger.
DOES IT HURT?
The procedure involves tiny needles that are so small that only the top layer of skin is permeated. Initial treatments are generally painless for most people. Some individuals with high skin sensitivity may experience some temporary discomfort.
HOW DOES IT HELP?
The procedure stimulates the body’s natural healing abilities. Both elastin and collagen are produced as part of the healing process. Elastin is a protein that is very elastic and responsible for pulling skin back into place. Collagen is the most common protein in the body and gives the skin increased elasticity and strength. The increase of the two combined proteins create smoother, more youthful-looking skin. The following issues can be improved with this service:
- Sun damage
- Large pores
- Acne scarring
- Stretch marks
WILL IT MAKE PORES BIGGER?
The collagen production stimulated by this service adds fullness to the skin. Increased fullness causes pores to become smaller or to appear closed entirely. Reduced pore appearance is one of the primary skin benefits of this treatment.
WHAT ABOUT SUN DAMAGE AND SCARS?
Skin that has been damaged by the sun or injury may require deeper penetration for optimal results. Treatment will not completely repair scarred skin but can produce remarkable improvement in scar visibility. Its effectiveness is similar to certain laser treatments and has a much shorter recovery time.
ARE THERE OTHER SKIN BENEFITS?
Clogged pores can reduce the absorption and effectiveness of skin care products and anti-aging serums. This procedure helps open the skin to be able to benefit more fully from such products. Specific topical medicines or serums may be recommended for use after the session to further improve skin appearance. The treated skin looks healthier and younger afterwards.
Skin does not react the same on all parts of the body. This means that some anti-aging repair methods are only effective in certain areas. Collagen induction therapy is not restricted in this way and is effective anywhere skin needs improved appearance.
