Most people would give just about anything to have flawless skin. This is especially true if they are dealing with uneven skin tone, fine lines, and wrinkles. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a therapy that uses a tool with very small needles to make pricks on the top layer of your skin. This is a minimally invasive treatment that has been helping Austin residents improve the appearance of their skin.
How Can Microneedling Rejuvenate Your Skin?
When it was first introduced, microneedling was seen as a way to provide general skin rejuvenation. Now, it is used in Austin to help individuals address some of the most common skin concerns that they have, ranging from stretch marks to wrinkles and scars.
This treatment works because it encourages your body to produce collagen. Collagen is the protein that your body uses to make your skin strong and elastic. As people get older, their bodies begin to produce less and less collagen. This is why people are dealing with the signs of aging, like wrinkles and sagging skin.
When a person’s skin experiences micro injuries, their body kicks into a high level repair mode. This forces the body to make new elastin and collagen to replace what was lost in the damaged part of the skin.
The micro injuries are surrounded by healthy skin tissue that has not been damaged. Still, the healthy skin tissue benefits from the collagen and elastin that is infused in the treated area.
A Unique Way to Improve Acne Scars
Multiple studies have been done that show without a doubt that microneedling treatments have the possibility to improve atrophic facial scarring. These are the scars that are sunken into a person’s skin because the skin does not have the ability to regenerate tissue. Many people who have had serious acne and those who have dealt with chickenpox have had to deal with these scars.
It is important to note that although microneedling has been shown to improve the appearance of acne scars, this treatment is not typically recommended for someone who is dealing with active acne. First, a person should use treatments to clear up their acne breakouts. Then, microneedling may be able to help them make their scars disappear.
Improve the Overall Radiance of Your Skin
When you look at the before and after pictures of individuals who have had this treatment done, it can be impressive to look at. After treatment, many people have radiant skin. They are often surprised at how soft their skin feels and how small their pores are.
