Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that uses a special device to create hundreds of microscopic channels in the skin for the purpose of encouraging collagen production. A dermaroller or dermapen is the tool used in this procedure. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this procedure initiates the body’s own healing process in order to boost collagen and create a new, healthier layer of skin. The result are significant. You’ll look visibly younger and refreshed. Take a look below at some of the key benefits of microneedling in Boston to discover what this treatment has to offer.
As the name implies, collagen induction therapy stimulates the production of collagen in your skin. Collagen is a protein that is responsible for tissue growth. It’s what gives your skin volume, elasticity and firmness. Collagen production slows down with age. Microneedling boosts collagen production, leading to a more youthful complexion with fewer visible lines, decreased sagging and firmer texture.
As noted above, the added boost in collagen production provided by microneedling in Boston brings about significant results. You’ll first notice a more radiant and glowing complexion. When the skin’s healing process begins from the tiny dermal channels of collagen induction therapy, blood flow increases and collagen is boosted. The result is brighter skin, in addition to plumper volume, increased tightness and softened lines.
If you have acne scarring, microneedling can help. Scars known as atrophic that are sunken into the skin have been shown to be decreased in severity. It’s important that you don’t seek treatment, however, when acne is in an active stage. Once it is healed, you can receive microneedling to plump up existing scars.
Deeper Product Penetration
Skincare products like lotions and creams are only effective if they can penetrate and reach the lower layers of skin. Studies have shown that collagen induction therapy allows products to penetrate more deeply than they did before treatment. The reason behind this is that microneedling decreases pore size and water loss, allowing products containing water-attracting compounds to infiltrate the skin’s surface. Your product will work much better if it’s able to get beyond just the top layer of your skin.
