Microneedling is a time-tested treatment for a range of cosmetic concerns, including aging skin. Also called collagen induction therapy, microneedling can diminish signs of skin aging for a rejuvenated appearance.
If you’re struggling with aging skin, microneedling is a minimally-invasive treatment option to refresh and restore the look of your skin. Let’s learn more about how microneedling works and how it can provide rejuvenating benefits for your skin.
How Microneedling Works For Signs of Aging
In microneedling treatment, fine sterile needles are moved across the surface of the skin. This creates tiny punctures in the outermost layer of the skin to stimulate its natural healing response. As the skin works to heal itself from these controlled injuries, the collagen production process accelerates.
Collagen provides strength and structure to the skin; when microneedling spurs heightened collagen production in the skin, the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, and other types of skin damage is reduced. The collagen works to smooth out lines and wrinkles, giving your complexion a more youthful and uniform appearance.
As the fine needles are applied to the skin during microneedling, the skin is prepped for the effective absorption of skincare products. At Mind Body Spirit Care, we apply medical-grade hyaluronic acid to the surface of the skin while we perform microneedling. Hyaluronic acid provides powerful hydration to the skin while giving it a plumper, smoother look.
The Benefits of Microneedling For Aging Skin
- Ease and convenience
Unlike surgical procedures for aging skin, microneedling is quick to perform and requires little to no downtime for recovery. You can retain the results of microneedling by returning for a session every four to six weeks.
- Improves skin’s tone and texture
The collagen developed as a result of microneedling gives the skin a brighter, more uniform tone and texture. So, in addition to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, microneedling will give your skin a healthy glow.
- Safe and natural
The micro-injuries created during microneedling treatment are safe, precise, and controlled. This procedure works hand-in-hand with your skin’s natural healing process.
