Ageing is bad news for the skin. Without proper skincare, the inevitable process of ageing can cause the skin to look dull, sagging, uneven looking, and dry. One of the effects of ageing is a slowing down in the production of two of the skin’s main protein building blocks-collagen and elastin. The appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation issues, and poor complexion are some of the typical signs of ageing
Luckily, there are ways to restore a glow of health to ageing skin. One of the most popular skin rejuvenation treatments is microneedling. If you want to learn more about microneedling and the results that it can provide its users, continue reading
What is Microneedling Therapy?
Collagen induction therapy, more popularly known as microneedling is a skin rejuvenation procedure that aims to improve the overall health and appearance of skin. This skin therapy involves the creation of controlled, microscopic punctures on the skin with the use of a tool called a skin needling pen.
A skin needling pen is fitted with tiny needles that puncture the superficial layers of skin. The body’s wound healing process then begins to stimulate the production of two protein building blocks of the skin; collagen and elastin.
What microneedling results should you expect after treatment?
- Immediate improvement in skin’s overall condition
One of the major strengths of microneedling therapy is that you can see a positive change in your skin after just one session. Your skin will feel smoother and silkier as collagen and elastin create a fresh skin layer.
- Reduces the appearance of scars and hyperpigmentation marks
The increased production of collagen and elastin fills up the holes due to stretch marks and acne marks. Microneedling successfully fills up the creases in between skin folds thus smoothening out and tightening the skin making it look and feel more youthful.
Microneedling may also be used by younger patients to prevent the signs of skin ageing from developing altogether.
- Healthier skin as you age
The good news is that microneedling is an excellent procedure for those who wish to slow down the rate of skin ageing. The procedure facilitates the absorption of nutrients from skincare products after microneedling session. The Dermapen treatment is an excellent maintenance procedure for those who wish to stay wrinkle-free and flawless as they age.
