An Effective Treatment for Rebuilding Your Skin’s Underlying Support System
After the age of thirty, we lose one percent of collagen each year. Collagen is vital in supporting the skin’s underlying structure and is in large part responsible for our skin’s youthful appearance. When collagen is no longer plentiful, our skin loses its firmness and elasticity. Wonderfully restorative, microneedling, however, works to stimulate our body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.
By stimulating our body’s own healing response, microneedling works to effectively:
- Diminish fine lines and wrinkles
- Lessen the appearance of scars
- Minimize stretch marks
- Strengthen lax and thinning skin
- Shrink large pores
Microneedling with SkinPen®
At L-Aesthetics & Longevity MedSpa, we perform microneedling treatments using the state-of-the-art SkinPen device by Bellus Medical. SkinPen is the only microneedling device that is FDA approved for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles.
Why microneedling is a great tool for restoring aging skin
A form of collagen induction, microneedling uses a handpiece containing numerous fine needles to create tiny channels within skin. Encouraging the skin to repair itself, each of these micro-wounds stimulates the body’s natural healing process. Collagen and elastin are created as the skin rebuilds itself from the inside out.
Safe for all skin types, microneedling is a relatively comfortable treatment with little to no lasting side effects. Microneedling is versatile. It can treat larger areas but is also delicate enough to treat fragile skin, such as the skin around the eyes and lips. While many of our patients experience immediate results after their first treatment, true results are seen up to six months afterwards as collagen rebuilds itself. We recommend a series of 3 to 6 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Lasting results can be maintained by scheduling a treatment every three months to one year.
Microneedling is a wonderfully effective, non-invasive treatment. With its many benefits, microneedling is a great way to support your skin’s long-term health and vitality.
