The skin is the first thing people notice in other people. Women and men alike desire to look young and vibrant, and, many times, the first part of the body to look old is the skin. Thanks to advances in medical and pharmaceutical technology, skin can look younger and fresher no matter a persons age. One of the procedures used specifically to improve skin today is known as Micro Needling, or also commonly known as Collagen Induction Therapy.
What Is Micro Needling?
Micro Needling is an aesthetic therapy used to improve the skins appearance as well as to lessen acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines.
How Does Micro Needling Work?
Very small needles are used on the skin in order to generate collagen and elastin. Specifically, the needles create little micro-channels which cause the skin to fill these wounds with new collagen and elastin. This generation begins to improve the skins wrinkles and overall appearance. Usually, Micro Needling only lasts about 30-60 minutes depending on the specific area of skin treated.
When Will Clients See Results?
That depends on the individual patient, but most patients have reported that their skin actually has a glow immediately following their procedure. In addition, patients usually continue to see results up to six months past their treatment due to the continued collagen production in their skin.
Is Micro Needling Safe?
Most professionals have indicated that Micro Needling is safer than other skin procedures (chemical peels, etc.) because the fine needles cause very little skin damage.
It is important to find a reputable doctor or aesthetician to perform the Micro Needling procedure, so be sure and check for reviews and testimonials from your chosen professional.
Adding Micro Needling procedures to a good skincare regimen can aid skin staying fresher and more vibrant.
