You want a treatment that will improve your skin, but you don’t want to do anything invasive. You may be wondering if there is such a treatment, and we have good news: there is. At Pristine Med Spa in Ridgecrest, CA, we offer collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, as a way to induce collagen production, rejuvenate the skin, and improve your overall appearance.
What Is Collagen Induction Therapy? 5 Ways Microneedling Rejuvenates Your Skin
Collagen induction therapy is the technical term for microneedling treatments. Collagen induction involves the stimulation of collagen production through the creation of tiny channels in the skin. These tiny channels are micro-injuries and the skin responds to them by flooding the area with collagen and elastin and in effect, rejuvenates the skin.
1. It Increases Collagen and Elastin Production
During this treatment, the skin responds to the tiny injuries and is forced to create new collagen to heal the area. This treatment also forces the body into healing mode, which results in collagen production, which leads to glowing and rejuvenated skin. Since the aging process decreases collagen and elastin production, the body needs to be forced to increase it from an outside source, and that’s exactly what this treatment does.
2. It Treats Fine Lines and Wrinkles
3. It Helps Your Products Work Better
Another way that microneedling rejuvenates the skin is by creating micro-channels to open up the skin. When you apply your nutrient-rich products to your skin post-treatment, you automatically increase the effectiveness of your products. This will result in an overall improved skin tone, texture, and appearance.
4. It Makes Your Skin Glow
5. It Reduces Acne Scars
What Areas Does It Treat?
This treatment is an effective way to rejuvenate the skin in many different areas of the body. It can be used on the face, the hands, the neck, and other areas where you want to experience skin rejuvenation.
