Micro-needling is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that can boost collagen production and treat a wide range of skin concerns. Also known as collagen induction therapy, micro-needling involves the creation of very small channels in the skin’s top layer using needles between 0.5 and 2 millimeters in diameter.
The controlled punctures created by micro-needling trigger the skin’s repair response, encouraging the production of new collagen and a protein known as elastin. In turn, the skin looks fresher, younger, and much more even. If you’re interested in micro-needling, there are various benefits you can expect to gain.
Improvement of Scars
Do you suffer from acne scars? Opting for a micro-needling session in Tuscon is a great way of addressing the sunken atrophic scars that can remain after a severe case of acne. Traditionally, atrophic scars are often considered very difficult to treat as they form when the skin cannot regenerate new tissue. However, scientific studies such as this one have demonstrated that micro-needling can be effective in significantly improving the appearance of acne scars.
It should be noted, however, that while micro-needling is an effective tool for those with atrophic scars, it is not recommended for those with active acne. Other treatments should be considered first if you have an ongoing acne issue.
Boosts Collagen Production
Collagen is crucial when it comes to maintaining a bright and youthful appearance. It is perfectly natural for collagen production to wane as we age, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging. However, micro-needling can help ward off the signs of aging and help you to maintain a youthful complexion for longer.
Encourages Deeper Absorption of Topical Creams
These treatments can help the skin retain moisture more effectively thanks to their ability to reduce the size of the skin’s pores. The process also improves the skin’s ability to absorb water-attracting compounds found in a variety of creams such as moisturizer, anti-aging cream, and primer. In this way, micro-needling can actually improve the effectiveness of the products you use on a daily basis.
