As we age, it’s easy to feel like our skin is letting us down. Many products and treatments promise anti-aging results, but they tend to either miss the mark, or be outrageously expensive and often risky.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is proven to be safe and effective at rejuvenating the skin, offering real results.
The minimally-invasive procedure turns back the clock on your skin’s appearance in just one treatment. And you’ll get more dramatic results with a series of treatments!
Who Should I Consider Microneedling
We know what aging and the environment does to our skin. You should consider microneedling if you suffer from skin that shows any of the following signs:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Age spots or sun spots
- Scars or stretch marks
- Uneven tone
- Uneven texture
- Dullness or dryness
And instead trade it in for skin that is:
- Even toned
- Smooth in texture
Microneedling is Affordable
Microneedling really gives you the most bang for your buck. It costs less (and is safer and easier) than expensive laser procedures, yet it also works better than an over-the-counter cream or fancy serum.
How Does Microneedling Work
By taking advantage of the skin’s natural healing response, micro-injuries are induced, which stimulates the skin into producing more collagen to repair it.
So how do doctors and aestheticians complete the microneedling treatment? It’s easier than it sounds!
Using an award-winning device called DermaPen, small punctures are made close together in the targeted area.
The Dermapen encourages neocollagenesis and neovascularization, which literally means new collagen and better blood supply.
In other words…
An aesthetician or medical professional will make tiny pricks in the skin using the microneedling device. The treatment is painless, because a numbing agent is applied first.
As the skin heals, it is restored to a more youthful texture and appearance because when collagen, elastin production and blood-supply are all increased, your skin is revitalized.
Microneedling Treatment Areas
What’s great about microneedling is it can be performed on almost any area of the body.
We know the face isn’t the only place on our body that starts to show signs of aging as we get older. So let’s look at the other areas that benefit from microneedling.
Common areas treated include:
- Décolletéete (chest)
Regardless of the body part you are targeting the process and results are exactly the same. Naturally, younger looking, more-perfect skin with zero pain and minimal downtime!
Do you have unsightly stretch marks caused by childbirth or normal growing pains? Stretch marks are common on the arms, legs and torso and they may be making you feel insecure.
Ever skipped wearing a bikini because of stretch marks? You don’t have to!
Boost your confidence by saying good-bye to stretch marks. Microneedling reduces the appearance of these marks using the same natural body response that helps it reverse signs of aging. By placing tiny pricks all over the affected area, skin begins to heal itself and stretch marks begin to fade away.
In addition to producing visible results, men and women alike are drawn to microneedling because it is:
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Repairs visible scars
- Reverses sun damage
- Fixes uneven pigmentation
- Offers anti-aging benefits
- Shrinks pores
- Allows for better absorption of skincare products
- Improves texture
- Decreases or eliminates the appearance of stretch marks
Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling is also great at every age due to its wide range of benefits.
If you look in the mirror and don’t recognize the older face looking back at you, you’re not alone.
Microneedling is commonly used to address the first sign of wrinkles. In fact, it can be used even before wrinkles are a problem to shrink pores and offer a smoother complexion.
Even if wrinkles don’t plague you, microneedling may still be the answer to better looking skin.
Microneedling is effective in reducing scars, dark spots and even signs of sun damage.
Any one of these skin imperfections can make you look older!
For Faster Results
And don’t forget, after microneedling the skin can better absorb ingredients applied to it such as serums with peptides, synthetic growth factors. Or even growth factors from your own blood, as in the Vampire Facial.
In fact, you can combine microneedling with the Vampire Facial to achieve even faster and more dramatic results.
The process is similar.
During a vampire facial the platelet-rich plasma from your own blood is injected back into your skin using small needling motions.
When you use both techniques together, the PRP is absorbed back into the skin more completely, boosting overall results and resulting in youthful, glowing skin.
Microneedling vs. Botox?
Botox is an injection that relaxes movement to muscles in the face in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Essentially, it reduces the movement of the muscles that create fine lines and deep wrinkles.
In microneedling nothing is injected into your face. Tiny needles are used to make small pricks all over your skin, or in a targeted area, and jumpstart the body’s natural healing response.
The results are long-lasting and the treatment can be repeated again and again.
Side effects are minimal at worst. Most patients do not experience any pain or discomfort during or after the treatment.
You may feel as is your skin is dry, which is normal. As your skin regenerates, it discards dead skin cells.
Depending on the depth of the treatment, your face may look as if you have a sunburn. However, it subsides in the following 24 hours.
Although you may wear makeup after the treatment, it is not recommended for the remainder of the day, so that any anti-oxidants , peptides or serums applied can be fully absorbed by the skin.
Just imagine how good your skin can look and feel after your treatment!
