Collagen is the most common protein found in your body and is extremely important for both skin health and appearance. It is one of the main ingredients of connective tissues that help to build ligaments, tendons, and skin. Unfortunately, collagen is a substance that tends to break down more readily when you grow older. This development leads to skin aging and the formation of lines and wrinkles. The good news is that a minimally invasive treatment called microneedling can help to safely rebuild your skin’s collagen levels to reduce common signs of aging such as wrinkles.
Importance of Collagen
Collagen plays an important role in building and strengthening your skin and can even help with hydration and elasticity. Getting older leads to less collagen production and the development of drier skin that is more prone to the development of lines and wrinkles that make you appear older.
The Ultimate Collagen Boost Using Microneedling
Microneedling is an advanced skin rejuvenation technique that builds upon the knowledge that delivering controlled skin injuries leads to the formation of new skin tissue and collagen fibers. The treatment involves the use of a device that creates microscopic openings in the surface layers of the skin, triggering the formation of new collagen and skin tissue.
A microneedling session can help to improve your skin by minimizing common skin problems such as lines and wrinkles, blemishes, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, and scars caused by acne, surgery, or trauma.
Microneedling benefits include diminished acne scars, reduced wrinkles, pore shrinkage, and an increase in collagen production that will build over the following weeks and months after your treatment.
Another key benefit of microneedling is that a large area of the skin is not damaged during the treatment process. The more skin that is injured in a skin rejuvenation treatment, the longer your recovery time will be. Needling is able to trigger significant changes in your skin’s appearance without doing much damage. Patients may not even be able to spot the tiny injuries on the surface of their skin.
Microneedling treatments also offer the advantage of a very soft and natural result. Unlike some forms of cosmetic surgery, we are not drastically and suddenly altering the shape and appearance of your face. We are working with your own body and triggering natural healing processes that result in an increase in collagen production and a reduction in signs of aging and sun damage.
We begin your microneedling treatment by cleaning your skin in the treatment area. Next, we gently glide the needling device over the treatment area to form numerous channels in your skin. Over the subsequent weeks and months, your skin will remodel itself through the production of new collagen fibers.
