Usually, when a person is younger, they do not really appreciate how great their skin is. In fact, they will complain about the smallest flaws. It is not until a person is older that they really appreciate how wonderful they looked when they were younger. They wish they could turn back the clock and look the way they did when they were younger, even with all of those perceived flaws. Fortunately, many people can do this with microneedling.
One of the best things about living in this day and age is that there are many different treatments that can help people get beautiful skin, even when factors like genetics, sun damage and age are fighting against them.
Think of how the skin changes as a person gets older. The skin produces less elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid. All of these substances give your skin its youthful appearance. When you start to lose these substances, you start to see wrinkles, sagging skin, and all of the other skin problems that are associated with the aging process.
This is where microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, can help. At first, many people feel a little bit nervous even when they hear this term. However, once you understand how and why this treatment works, you are likely going to be interested in it.
At our clinic, microneedling is done with the specially-designed SkinPen. This roller will be passed over your skin several times, creating many micro-channels. These micro-channels kick start the skin’s healing process. More blood is directed toward the surface of the skin, which improves circulation. The skin starts to produce more collagen and elastin as well. These are the substances responsible for keeping your skin elastic and smooth.
The second benefit brought on by these micro-channels is the fact that topical creams and other treatments are much more effective after a microneedling treatment. When you apply topical treatments to the surface of your skin, they can only penetrate to so deep. However, with microneedling, these treatments can reach deeper into your skin.
