Why Microneedling Is Such A Hot Topic

 In Beauty

You’re in search for something more than a facial, but you’re not quite ready for a laser treatment.  We get it! We’ve all been there! For our patients and those who are still on the fence, we offer Microneedling.  Microneedling is a procedure that uses a needle-studded wand to create micro-wounds to the skin. Microneedling can treat an assortment of skin issues, including acne scars and sun damage. Likewise, it also promotes collagen development for those unpretentious signs of aging. It will smooth lines, wrinkles, and enhance the skin surface.

Why Choose Microneedling

The objective of a microneedling treatment is to stimulate collagen while effectively exfoliating the skin. The downtime is very minimal and the cost is more affordable compared to laser treatments. Your skin may appear red for the initial 25-72 hours and the pores on your face will be open.  Due to this, we advise patients to avoid putting on makeup for the first 24 hours.

Why Collagen Regeneration Is Important

Why is collagen regeneration is important?  Collagen is a natural protein produced in our bodies that keep the skin plump and youthful.  Collagen helps smooth wrinkles and fine lines while making the skin more elastic and firm. happening protein in our bodies that will keep the skin full and young. Microneedling utilizes the body’s own repair system to enhance the appearance. For instance, controlled skin injury prompts collagen creation, which in turn becomes a form of anti-aging!
