Even though many of us have to deal with fine lines and wrinkles as we grow older, our skin actually has the amazing ability to heal itself. Micro-needling is a technique that triggers your body’s natural healing response in order to smooth and tone your skin. It is the perfect treatment option for patients who are ready to look years younger without undergoing an invasive procedure.
A Fresh Look at Anti-Aging Treatments
There are quite a few steps an individual can take to protect their skin and slow the signs of aging. This includes limiting sun exposure, not smoking and steering clear of chemical-laden beauty products. Even with all of that work, however, there is no guarantee that your skin will remain firm, toned and beautiful forever. Over the years, your body will not produce as much collagen, elastin and other essential proteins that protect your skin.
Topical collagen treatments can be somewhat effective, but your skin must produce more collagen naturally to create long-term results. This is why so many people have turned to micro-needling in order to reinvigorate their appearance.
What is Micro-Needling?
This procedure has actually been used for quite a few decades, but experts did not know exactly why it worked until recently. When a surface injury takes place, your body floods the area with proteins and other substances that heal the area naturally. Micro-needling takes advantage of this response by creating thousands of microscopic channels in the skin. In turn, the nearby soft tissue produces an excess of collagen and elastin. Instead of using foreign products to artificially improve your skin, your body does all of the hard work.
The Ideal Micro-Needling Candidate
Since micro-needling is almost completely non-invasive, it is a great option for practically anyone who is uninterested in facelifts and other forms of surgery. It can be carried out by itself or in conjunction with other products or treatments that will further improve the results. Before your treatment, you must be cleared by our staff so we can be sure you do not have any medical issues that will affect the results. You should also have realistic expectations and be ready to protect your skin in the coming years.
During the Procedure
Most of our patients claim that micro-needling feels as if sandpaper is being gently applied to their skin. The total length of your session largely depends on the size of the treatment area. Some appointments are completed in as little as 30 minutes while others take an hour or longer.
You do not need to accept fine lines and wrinkles as an unavoidable consequence of aging. This amazing procedure can help you reinvent your appearance without the need for deep incisions or sutures.
