As we age and mature, our skin experiences inevitable changes. Luckily, there are now a plethora of treatments and skincare procedures available to rejuvenate, restore, and heal the epidermal surface of our skin. Micro-needling is one of the best of them, and it’s readily available right here in Nashville, TN.
What is Micro-Needling?
Micro-needling effectively pierces the epidermal surface as well as the upper layers of the dermis thousands of times in a matter of seconds. These controlled micro-openings work to exfoliate the skin and stimulate a natural healing response within the treated area, which results in the production of elastin and collagen, two proteins that provide our skin with the elasticity and smoothness.
Improves the Quality and Texture of Your Skin
This skincare technique can provide you with long-lasting results, replenishing your skin with a more polished and smooth look due to the revascularization of the dermis, causing the body to naturally react and reconstruct the epidermal surface of the skin. Immediately following the procedure, you’ll notice vast overall improvements in your skin, including softer texture. And the results continue to get better in time.
Reduces Age Spots and Scarring
If you suffer from acne scarring or scarring in general (with the exception of keloid scarification overgrowth), this treatment provides you with a simple solution that can drastically reduce the appearance of many types of scars by detaching overly aggressive fibrosis fibers under the surface of the skin. As previously mentioned, the stimulation of collagen production and blood circulation causes the body to target these problem areas, leading to visibly healthier and clearer skin and eliminating troublesome scarification.
Minimizes Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Micro-needling induces the production of elastin and collagen, which causes the face to fill out and strengthen, reducing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles.
Reduces Hyperpigmentation and Discoloration
Hyperpigmentation can be caused by a number of different medical conditions, some of which result from irritation or swelling. Micro-needling minimizes the appearance of discoloration and age spots by encouraging the growth and development of normalized melanocytes (melanin-producing skin cells).
