Our all time favourite skin saving treatment
We are committed to bringing you the best when it comes to health and wellness. Last year I started to notice some changes in my skin’s…shall we say, youthful appearance. Truthfully, I’m a minimalist when it comes to skin care routines. Up until now, I had not stuck to a nightly or morning routine. What can I say, I like to keep life quick and efficient. In walked micro needling, or collagen induction therapy. Originally created for a Burn Victim unit in Europe, microneedling is a novel therapy being used to rejuvenate skin. And, here’s the best part: It’s minimally invasive with little to no recovery time.
Not only does micro needling offer aesthetic benefits to skin, it is also therapeutic. As I looked deeper into the research, I found many more indications for this therapy.
• Melasma, Hypo and Hyper pigmentation
• Extrinsic Aging; wrinkles, lines, sagging skin and laxity
• Scarring, especially acne scars
• Stretch Marks
The process is simple. During a micro-needling treatment we use special needles to puncture the papillary layer in the dermis. This triggers a wound healing process which utilizes growth factors that instruct the body to develop new, healthy, younger looking skin.
Benefits of Microneedling:
Improve the texture
Reduce Pore Size
Even out pigment in the skin
Improve the appearance of scars
Reduces Risk of Non – Melanoma Skin Cancer
