Are the wrinkles on your face or scars on your skin ruining your self-confidence? You can actually get rid of the unpleasant wrinkles and facial contours without paying through the nose. All you may have to do is undergo a micro-needling treatment. This quick and simple cosmetic procedure can help you achieve smooth, firm and youthful skin.
Also known as collagen induction therapy, micro-needling smoothens the skin by inducing collagen production to strengthen the epidermis. The therapist uses a special device to create “micro-injuries” in the treatment area that trigger collagen production. Each “micro-injury” triggers the body to synthesize new collagen and elastin that fills the microscopic area. Micro-needling typically has no major side effects and its results can be noticed after a short period of treatment.
Following are some of the benefits of this cosmetic therapy.
1. Eliminates wrinkles and fine facial lines
With old age comes the loss of collagen and elastin. This causes the thinning and sagging of skin with the ultimate result being facial wrinkles. During a micro-needling treatment, the body is stimulated to create collagen and elastin that prevents the formation of wrinkles and facial contours. This way, you will get your youthful skin back with little to no downtime.
2. Scar treatment
Micro-needling can be used to manage acne scars that are characteristically stubborn to treat. The treatment can be applied to the scar to break down old tissue while stimulating synthesis of collagen and elastin for healthier skin.
3. Even overall skin tone
Micro-needling is an effective cosmetic procedure that is applied to eliminate wrinkles and facial lines from developing, which ultimately evens the skin tone in the treatment area. However, just like with any other cosmetic procedure, it is important that you do your homework in order to find a licensed practitioner with experience in administering the procedure.
