When you look in the mirror, is the face you see as youthful and refreshed as it once was? Daily stresses and obligations can drain the life out of our appearance. Have you heard of Microneedling?
The reasons for facial aging are numerous and can include the following factors:
Genetics Exposure to sun, gravity, or pollution Lifestyle habits (such as smoking) The natural aging process
Individuals seeking to “turn back the clock” on facial aging without facelift surgery may want to consider microneedling.
Microneedling is minimally invasive collagen induction therapy (CIT) with the goal of improving skin texture and firmness, as well as reducing pore size and the appearance of scars and stretch marks. This technique can be performed on the face, as well as other areas of the body.
How Does It Work?
The process of microneedling does just as the name suggests: by using tiny needles that repeatedly puncture the skin, we’re able to create a controlled skin injury that encourages production of new collagen and elastin. This procedure is often a great alternative to chemical peels, or when skin requires a stronger and more effective treatment.
The term microneedling has become increasingly popular and some products claim to help individuals achieve the same kind of results at home. While popular technology can be effective to a certain degree, what is accomplished with a certified team is much more sophisticated and targeted.*
Recovering from this procedure doesn’t take long – typically 1 or 2 days, though individual results will vary. Contact us to learn more about microneedling. We look forward to speaking with you!
