When the skin begins to lose collagen as you get older, the skin does not repair itself as it did when you were younger. The skin loses its elasticity, creating lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Restoring collagen levels in the skin can help tighten the skin, restore a more youthful texture and minimize wrinkles. Collagen induction therapy with micro needling can help turn back the hands of time on your skin, with little downtime and natural results.
What Is Micro Needling?
When the skin is injured, collagen is produced to help repair the skin. It is one of the building blocks of the skin and is needed for repairs. Collagen induction therapy works by injuring the skin enough to spur collagen production, but not enough to damage the skin. Micro needling is one method that uses tiny needles to pierce the skin, puncturing to induce collagen, but without major damage to the skin. The procedure can be performed by a plastic surgeon for optimum results.
Micro needling helps increase collagen and elastin, which restores more youthful skin over time. The procedure can be repeated every several weeks over a few months to achieve the best results. As the skin repairs, it tightens and improves in texture. Micro needling can also help minimize scars and skin discolorations as the collagen repairs the skin.
Micro needling is a non-invasive option to improve the youthfulness of your skin. There is very little discomfort or downtime needed with the procedure – most people have a little redness of the skin for a day or two, but it fades quickly. If you are interested in learning about this natural approach to repairing aging skin, contact a local plastic surgeon that offers collagen induction therapy.
