Part of the natural aging process involves a gradual decline in the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. These two important compounds contribute heavily to the quality of our skin, enabling it to retain moisture, maintain its healthy volume, and keep that youthful glow that we all know and love so much. Seeing these qualities slip away can be a troubling reality.
How Does the Microneedling Procedure Work?
Microneedling helps to refresh and rejuvenate your skin by encouraging your body to naturally produce more of the compounds that keep it healthy, nourished, and looking its best. Using a special, FDA-approved tool called the SkinPen, the SkinPen microneedling procedure creates a series of tiny channels in your skin, with a set of incredibly fine needles.
These tiny micro-injuries stimulate your body’s wound response, which encourages it to send restorative and regenerative compounds to the treatment area, kick-starting the increased production of collagen and elastin. These compounds rejuvenate your skin naturally, enabling it to look more youthful and hydrated, without any surgery.
