Needling your way to glowing skin does not necessarily sound like a procedure to embrace, especially if you are one who trembles at the idea of needles. Some individuals may have a healthy curiosity about the procedure, while those who are familiar with it smile knowingly. The microneedling treatment can bring out the beauty of your natural skin.
What Lies Beneath
Below the surface of your skin is a substance called collagen. This is what gives your skin its strength and firmness. As the years progress, collagen production declines. Skin loses volume that provided your youthful appearance. Tiny lines begin to form and soon wrinkles appear. The skin itself loses the glow it had and becomes drier, and pores seem larger.
Elastin is another component of the skin matrix. It is an essential protein that gives skin its elasticity. As aging advances, like collagen, elastin levels drop, and the skin begins to lose its elasticity.
Building Up the Base
When collagen and elastin levels are increased, the skin resumes a healthier look. Fine lines and wrinkles slowly become less noticeable and the skin takes on a youthful glow. The body has a healing process, that when given the right stimulation, kicks in. Micro-needling prompts the production of new collagen and elastin, building up the base under the top layers of skin. As the new foundation is built up, it results in brighter, smoother-looking skin.
Benefits of Micro-needling
It may be hard to believe that pricking the skin with bundles of tiny needles can lead to beautiful-looking skin, but it works. After treatment, you will notice your skin becoming firmer to the touch. Fine lines and deep wrinkles will be less noticeable. Instead of a dry, flaky surface, you skin will look smoother and more hydrated. The pores that were so noticeable before treatment will not be as prominent.
This procedure improves the texture of your skin and gives is a glow your face has not had in a while. You can learn more about micro-needling and its benefits by scheduling a consultation appointment with Dr. Kami Parsa. Contact us today for information about the many treatments we offer.
