How To Maintain Beautiful and Youthful Skin
Over time, the collagen in our skin will weaken and begin to break down, causing wrinkles and signs of aging. Collagen plays a role in strengthening skin and restoring its elasticity. Microneedling boosts collagen resulting in beautifully plump and rejuvenated skin. If you’re looking for a way to improve the appearance of aging skin, fine lines, or damaged skin, microneedling might be the right choice for you to achieve younger-looking skin.
What Is It And How Does It Work
Microneedling involves the insertion of multiple very fine, short needles into the skin. This technique creates tiny pin-prick punctures into the skin and the body naturally rushes to heal them, resulting in a more plump, youthful appearance. The healing process is your skin’s response by stimulating collagen and elastin growth.
Microneedling is a noninvasive procedure with little to no downtime. The treatment begins with a light numbing cream applied to the skin. Then the doctor will use the microneedling tool, the Bellus SkinPen, evenly throughout the skin in various directions. The procedure takes around 20-30 minutes to complete and is finished with a soothing serum. The treated area might have a little redness for a few days with very minor discomfort. Your skin will be sensitive to sunlight, so applying plenty of sunscreen is a must.
More and more people are turning to microneedling to achieve their skin goals as it’s a natural way to treat several skin conditions and is less invasive compared to other treatments. It’s commonly used on the face, but other parts of the body may benefit from microneedling.
Some of the benefits include:
- Reduces signs of aging
- Heals damaged skin, acne scars
- Diminishes lines and wrinkles
- Enhances areas of volume loss
- Reduces skin discoloration
- Tightens skin
- Reduce the appearance of large pores
Another added benefit of microneedling is the increased absorption of skincare products after the procedure. Having skincare products reach deeper into the skin can add to the results and rejuvenation of the skin.
