Bright, fresh, youthful-looking skin is a priority for many of us, especially as we get older.
Even the best skin care regimen can only go so far in combating the natural aging process and the damage that occurs to the outer layer of facial skin, known as the epidermis, from exposure to sun, wind, and environmental toxins.
One of the most effective ways that you can enhance the vibrancy and elasticity of your facial skin is with treatments that target the deeper layer of tissue, the dermis, which you can’t see but that provides essential support and nourishment to the outer epidermis.
The dermis has a huge impact on the health and appearance of the epidermis, since this layer of skin is absolutely packed with cells such as fibroblasts, hair follicles, and sebaceous cells that all contribute to your skin’s tone, texture, and glow.
Fibroblasts in particular play a vital role in skin health. They are the manufacturers of collagen and elastin, the proteins that are responsible for the plump, vibrant appearance of youthful skin. As time goes by, our fibroblasts become less efficient at producing collagen and elastin, and the result is thinning, sagging skin that is more prone to fine lines and wrinkles.
A Solution that Rejuvenates the Look of Your Skin
There is a safe, effective, and extremely popular treatment that targets the fibroblasts in your dermis and encourages healthy looking skin at a deep level: microneedling.
Microneedling works by stimulating the fibroblasts and triggering cellular activity that leads to collagen formation. The process is related to how the skin repairs itself after injury. When the skin sustains damage, the cells immediately respond by directing all their resources to repair the injured area. Microneedling harnesses this principle by creating miniscule micro injuries on the skin that jumpstart collagen production, transforming aging, brittle-looking skin into skin that is soft, plump, and vibrant.
The Facts About Microneedling
Microneedling is an appropriate treatment for all skin types and is a quick, non-invasive procedure with next to no downtime. Depending on the condition of your skin, results may be seen as early as the first treatment or require a series of treatments.
To find out more about how microneedling can improve the look and condition of your skin, whether you want to fight the signs of aging, address issues such as acne scars, or simply give your already thriving skin an added boost, contact us today to schedule your consultation.
