Over the years, our skin weathers a great variety of things. Long-term exposure to the sun, the wax and wane of acne, and the formation wrinkles and fine lines can certainly take a great collective toll. We at Metabolix Wellness Center are proud to offer micro-needling, which can help your skin in many different ways! We encourage you to learn how this rejuvenating treatment can benefit you.
First, we’ll begin with the basics of micro-needling. This effective non-surgical procedure uses a special device that glides over your skin to creating a multitude of microscopic openings. These micro-channels actually prompt your skin to begin the healing process. As a result, your skin will start producing more collagen and elastin, which is what your skin needs to overhaul itself. These are the key proteins responsible for the structural integrity and elasticity of the skin.
The Signs of Aging
Because micro-needling prompts the healing response of your skin, it is a great way to reduce or eliminate the many signs of aging. One of the primary causes of fine lines and wrinkles is the fact that as you age, your body slows down the production of collagen. Micro-needling essentially gets your skin to start producing that much-needed collagen and elastin, which in turn smooths out those fine lines and wrinkles. Micro-needling can also forestall new wrinkles and fine lines from forming.
Micro-needling can also help reduce the look of different kinds of scarring. If you’ve suffered from any kind of acne, then you know well that acne can often leave behind undesirable scars. These scars are a result of the the acne cysts rupturing and causing damage to the pore. Your skin will bring in collagen to heal that area, but often that collagen creates a raised scar. Micro-needling is capable of removing that unhealthy collagen so that your skin is able to produce new, healthy collagen, thus getting rid of your scar!
Overall, this treatment leaves your skin looking and feeling the best it ever has. For one, your complexion will be clearer, as all those wrinkles and scars will be gone. Most patients report that their skin is smoother and softer, more like it was when they were in their twenties. Micro-needling can also reduce the appearance of any skin discolorations or age spots.
On the whole, micro-needling is a procedure that effectively addresses many different kinds of skin imperfections.
