Today microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is heralded as a minimally invasive skin rejuvenating procedure that helps diminish the signs of aging and reduce the appearance of acne scars. This procedure is virtually painless, thanks to a topical numbing solution that we use prior to every treatment. For most of us, the focus and allure of microneedling is its incredible ability to rejuvenate and restore our skin by stimulating the growth of collagen and elastin. This is accomplished by creating micro-injuries on the surface of the skin, which then promote the natural wound healing process in your body. It’s during this healing phase that our bodies produce collagen and elastin, the foundation for your skin’s firmness, elasticity and integrity, and is precisely why microneedling has become such a popular treatment for combating textural issues in the skin and signs of aging. Microneedling treatments typically take about an hour and require minimal downtime following the procedure. Not to mention, it’s a great treatment to add to your year-round list for keeping your skin at its very healthiest.
How well does microneedling work? I can tell you firsthand – the answer is incredibly well. As a teenager I suffered from acne, and now as an adult, I’m always looking for effective ways to treat the scarring that was left behind. I’ll share with you that microneedling has given me a noticeable improvement in the texture of my skin. I now tell everyone that thanks to adding microneedling to my skin care routine, my skin has never looked better! Make your skin a priority this year. Schedule a complementary consultation with me, and we’ll develop a treatment plan together to help you achieve that New Year’s glow!
