Collagen production is key to having healthy skin. One of the reasons why your skin looked so great when you were younger is because your body produced a healthy amount of collagen. Unfortunately, as we get older, our skin starts to produce less and less collagen. This is why with age, we start to see sunspots and other damage to our skin. Micro-needling is a procedure that is designed to encourage your body to make more collagen. This allows your skin to use its own healing ability to correct imperfections.
Micro-needling is a great way to improve the texture of your skin, the tone of your skin, as well as address issues like sun damage and sunspots that are marring the appearance of your skin. In addition to addressing things like sun damage and sunspots, micro-needling can minimize the look of stretch marks, get rid of acne marks, and smooth out your skin’s pigmentation.
In addition to encouraging your body to create more collagen, micro-needling allows topical products applied to your skin to penetrate deeper. As the micro-needles penetrate your skin, they form many canals. These canals serve as entryways for topical products that otherwise would not be able to penetrate your skin’s surface.
Micro-needling takes advantage of the fact that collagen production gives your skin structure. Collagen has been described as a net that binds your skin cells together. Collagen makes your skin smooth, it makes your skin look young, and it makes you look vibrant. The micro-needling process puts little punctures into your skin with the goal of kick-starting the production of collagen, thereby pumping up your skin.
As you know all too well, sunspots and sun damage can mar your appearance. They can make you look older, worn out, and tired. Do not let sun damage define who you are.
