When you sit in front of a mirror, it is difficult to not judge your own appearance. When we judge the way that we look, we often do so based on the way that we looked a few years ago. We start to notice the way that age is taking a toll on our appearance. There are certain fine lines and wrinkles that we didn’t have just a few years ago. It can be depressing to see the way that age has changed the way we look. Thankfully, there are treatments like micro-needling that can help rejuvenate our appearance, refresh our skin, and improve the way that we look.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling has been referred to by some as skin needling. This is a minimally-invasive treatment that is designed to rejuvenate your skin. It takes advantage of your body’s natural recuperative powers. It is also known as collagen induction therapy.
When your skin is injured, your body reacts almost immediately by flooding the injured area with collagen. Collagen is one of the basic building blocks of your skin. Unfortunately, as we get older, our skin produces less collagen. That’s why we start to see changes in our appearance with age.
What micro-needling does is create micro-channels in your skin. These micro-openings trigger your body’s healing system, flooding the area with collagen. The collagen heals the skin and improves its texture. Your skin receives a higher level of collagen that it usually would, and the result is that it looks younger and healthier.
When a person has micro-needling done, they may be surprised to see that their pore size is reduced, scars in the treated area start to disappear, and stretch marks begin to fade. What’s great about micro-needling is that it is a non-surgical treatment that produces noticeable, reliable, and attractive results.
Treating Fine Lines and Wrinkles
One of the primary reasons why people turn to this treatment is to address fine lines and wrinkles on their face. When we were younger, we were blessed with healthy skin. But many of us took that skin for granted. As a result, we may have spent time in the sun without the proper protection. Now, later on in life, we are starting to see the negative effects of that sun damage. Since micro-needling promotes the natural production of elastin and collagen, it is able to help you minimize wrinkles and fine lines, especially after a series of treatment sessions.
