Full moon’s and the gentle autum weather inspire me to write this next blog on Microneedling otherwise known as Collagen Induction Therapy. I hope you are feeling invigorated by the change as well.
It’s always good to slough off each passing season with a facial, peel or enzyme therapy. Better yet, try my newest clinical treatment—microneedling! This collagen-induction therapy stimulates the production of both collagen and elastin and gives the skin a soft and supple feel.
The Microneedling Process
First, we cleanse the skin and apply numbing cream to help ease any temporary discomfort. Once the skin has been numbed, the microneedling pen is then used on the skin to create microscopic punctures, which triggers the body’s natural healing response. Then hyaluronic acid is applied to penetrate the deep dermal layers and promotes plumping and hydration. It also speeds up the healing process. There might be some pinpoint bleeding, but it doesn’t last long. Collagen Induction Therapy lasts about ten minutes. (The entire treatment is about one hour including 30 minutes for the numbing cream.)
You’ll see instant results with Microneedling. Plus, the results are long-lasting, especially when a series of treatments are done. You’ll see that signs of aging and sun damage can be reversed in just a few treatments.
Microneedling is Better with time
According to a 2008 study, people who received just four treatments approximately one month apart noticed a significant difference in their collagen and elastin six months after completing the treatments. In other words, their skin improves over time. Learn more about the findings. Read more about this study here.
See you soon!
