If you are bothered by uneven skin tone, reduced skin elasticity, age spots or fine wrinkles and want to restore firmer, brighter skin microneedling may be a suitable skin treatment for you.
Why try Microneedling
Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy. Collagen is a body protein that promotes skin elasticity and healthier skin. Collagen is also part of all connective tissues and joints. Unfortunately, collagen production declines with age resulting in thinner, more fragile skin. The declining collagen levels lead to fine lines, wrinkles and a loss of smoothness on the skin surface.
Microneedling stimulates your body to produce more collagen and distribute it to the areas where the microneedling was applied. The new collagen-rich tissue is more even in color and texture as well as firmer which reduces blemishes and wrinkles.
What to expect after Microneedling
Microdermabrasion uses a diamond tip handpiece on sensitive facial areas to gently remove dead cells and suction them up at the same time.
Microneedling is minimally invasive, so recovery time is minimal. You may notice a small amount of redness or irritation for a few days after the procedure. Your therapist will advise you how to reduce or hide any blotchiness during healing.
Your skin produces collagen quickly after the procedure, and you can expect to see results within a couple of weeks.
