Microneedling (also knows as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the use of a device that contains fine needles. The device is used to create tiny, invisible "micro-injuries" on your skin to promote cell turnover and increase collagen and elastin production. The treatment is virtually painless and incredibly effective. Microneedling has become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason.The collagen and elastin production it
The aggressive collagen production effect caused by microneedling has many different benefits for your skin including reversing wrinkles and even preventing new ones from forming. Collagen is responsible for the "plump" look of skin when it's smooth and free of wrinkles. In fact the main reason wrinkles form in the first place is because the amount of collagen and elastin being produced by the body slows down as we age (to learn more about how wrinkles form click here.) Microneedling causes collagen to be produced in the dermis which tightens the skin to smooth out wrinkles and fill them in from the inside out.
Our microneedling treatment is especially rejuvenating because we include the application of growth serums which, through the micro-channels formed by the treatment, have access deep into the dermis to provide even more rejuvenation, lifting, and tightening for your skin to reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging.
promotes both reverses and prevents the signs of aging. It also reduces many other skin imperfections such as acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and stretch marks.
Additionally microneedling has no downtime, meaning you can go right back to your normal activities after your microneedling session.
Stretch marks happen when the skin is pulled by rapid growth or stretching. Although the skin is usually fairly elastic, when it's overstretched, the normal production of collagen is disrupted. As a result, scars called stretch marks may form. Because microneedling is the best treatment for encouraging the rapid production of collagen it is very effective at reducing the appearance of stretch marks.
Microneedling does not have to be exclusively used on the face, it can be used almost anywhere on the body to promote collagen production. This is why microneedling can be used to treat stretch marks. Similarly to when applied to the face, when applied anywhere else on the body the treatment will lead to more collagen and elastin being produced. Elastin and collagen help your skin look healthy and young, these properties will make stretch marks disappear from the inside out, repairing and strengthening the dermis resulting in smooth, unmarked skin.
Microneedling reduces many types of skin imperfections besides wrinkles and stretch marks. It also:
