As we age our body begins to lose volume, and our skin becomes loose and crepe like. This naturally happens as the building blocks of collagen proteins that help keep our cells strong and connected begins to degrade. As a result, gravity tends to have more influence on your skin cells. Over time this creates droopiness and wrinkles.
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, involves using fine needles to create thousands of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layers of skin.
Sound appealing? Not so much. But this minimally invasive treatment is virtually painless and incredibly effective. The micro-injuries created stimulates the body’s natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production. This process can reverse as well as stave off signs of aging.
During the skin’s healing process, your body rejuvenates new skin cells by increasing your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. This results in an overall improvement in the texture and tightness of your skin by “filling in the lines,” reducing the wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks that can keep you looking young as you age.
“One of the reasons I like microneedling—because it’s able to utilize the body’s own natural healing mechanisms, so the results are very natural,” Lisa Marie says. “Also because there’s minimal downtime with it, I often recommend it as a maintenance for people who are trying to stave off the signs of aging.”
The number of treatments required varies based on the results you want to achieve. With just a couple of sessions of microneedling there will be a noticeable reduction of fine lines, crow’s feet, and an improvement in skin texture. For deeper wrinkles, forehead lines, scars or pigmentation, depending on the severity, you may need 4 to 8 microneedling treatments to achieve optimal skin-tightening results.
The risk involved in microneedling treatments is very minimal. After a treatment, dry skin or red discoloration may occur, which will typically subside within a day or 2. This treatment is for almost all skin types. Each treatment is customizable to your desired results and your individual needs.
