Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, has been shown to have incredible effects on the health and beauty of your skin. The concept is simple: by inflicting thousands of barely perceptible injuries to the top layer of skin, the body is encouraged to produce additional collagen and regenerate the surface layer with fresh, unblemished skin. It’s no surprise it’s becoming one of the most popular beauty treatments around, improving the appearance of scars, wrinkles and roughness.
Did You Know?
Microneedling stimulates collagen production without the application of heat, light, or laser energy. The process is instead mechanical, and produces some amazing anti-aging effects by encouraging the body to rejuvenate itself in response to the minute wounds created by the fine needling process. Additionally, it offers the advantage of minimal downtime. Useful in all skin types, microneedling avoids photo-sensitivity that may be experienced with the laser treatments.
Can Microneedling Reverse Sun Damage?
Absolutely. One of the best things for damaged skin is an influx of new collagen, an influx that occurs when the skin is treated with microneedling. Collagen has been shown to help reverse sun damage and help with discoloration. Even more amazing is that this process has been shown to be effective in the treatment of melasma, a condition in which hyperpigmentation results in brown blotching on the skin.
I have Large Pores, Will Microneedling help?
Absolutely! While poking your skin full of thousands of tiny holes may not sound like the most intuitive way to shrink your pores, the results speak for themselves. Pores actually dramatically reduce in size as a result of the plumping effect of renewed collagen, making them appear smaller or completely closed.
Which areas respond to Microneedling?
Microneedling can be done anywhere on the body where you want to see shrunken pores, tighten skin, and renewed elasticity. Most treatments of this type are only able to be used on the facial area, while microneedling can be done anywhere you have stretch marks, acne scars, or aging skin you’d like to see rejuvenated. Some of the most popular locations are the back, legs, and buttocks
