Microneedling for Healthier Skin

Feb 26, 2016 05:38PM

Microneedling, a safe, clinically proven, chemical-free method to boost collagen and elastin production, reduces wrinkles, scars, sun damage and dark spots, shrinks pores, improves texture and youthful glow and helps maintain healthy skin. It dates back to the days of ancient Chinese acupuncture, later to be embraced by the French 50 years ago. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin.

Upon creation of these small holes, healing begins almost immediately. This process is enhanced further by modern medicine, nourishing the skin at a cellular level with a blend of peptides, essential skin vitamins and antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, collagen and plasma-rich protein with active growth factors to further support the body’s own healing and anti-aging mechanisms. Treatment is customized to meet personal goals and a multivitamin pill is taken by mouth daily to nourish the skin and recover from environmental toxins. There is no downtime.

Microneedling is safe for all skin types and can be used on all body parts, but is most commonly utilized for face, neck, chest and hand rejuvenation. Depending on the goals, individuals may need microneedling just twice a year to maintain healthy skin or a series of three to four sessions to reduce the signs of aging; up to six treatments, four weeks apart, may be required if the goal is scar reduction.
