Are you frustrated with dull, unhealthy-looking skin? Whether due to clogged pores, environmental impurities, or the body’s natural aging process, the skin can lose its healthy glow over time. However, with microneedling, it’s possible to restore your skin’s radiance (and your confidence levels)!
What Exactly is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a time-tested, minimally-invasive aesthetic treatment that improves the appearance of the skin. During the treatment, small and sterile needles are inserted into the surface of the skin, creating microscopic injuries. These controlled injuries in the skin’s surface stimulate its natural healing process. In response to the injuries, the skin produces more collagen, which is a protein that gives skin its strength and structure.
Enhanced Collagen Production
Once you surpass the age of 20, the skin produces 1% less collagen with every passing year. With less collagen, the skin becomes thinner and less elastic, which can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. By boosting collagen production in the skin, microneedling can offset these signs of aging to give your skin a more youthful look.
Increased Skin Cell Turnover
As well as increasing collagen production, microneedling increases skin cell turnover. This means that the skin will more effectively shed dead or damaged skin cells to replace them with healthy ones. This process can rid the skin of its dull appearance caused by dead skin cells remaining on the surface of the skin, and give it a brighter, healthier look.
Greater Absorption of Skincare Products
Immediately after microneedling, the skin can more effectively absorb serums and products for maximum benefit. At Skin and Body Curvatures, we offer microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), derived from the patient’s own blood, to enhance the effects of microneedling. PRP contains healing growth factors that help to regenerate the skin, reduce the appearance of imperfections, and give you a fresh complexion.
