As we age, we continuously lose collagen. Estimate that between the ages of 20 and 40, the skin’s collagen diminishes by up to 50 percent. Subsequently, what we lose in fullness, we gain in wrinkles. Sitting between injectable and topical treatments that promise to counteract the visual effects of aging is micro-needling in Fort Myers Florida, the use of a handheld device that creates controlled skin injury. Micro-needling is still the best treatment there is. You can undergo micro-needling at Natalie’s Skin Solutions, a micro-needling center in Fort Myers Florida.
How does micro-needling work in a laser center in Fort Myers Florida?
Micro-needling is most likely the best treatment for skin resurfacing and the way it works is by using needles that are long enough to cause microscopic injuries to the fine blood vessels that are at the level of the hair follicles. When there is a small bit of bleeding, platelets leave the blood vessels and get exposed to the surrounding tissue. This causes a reaction whereby the platelets excrete hormones and growth factors which cause the stimulation of fibroblasts and other collagen-producing cells to start increasing their production. This, in turn, results in more elastic and rejuvenated skin.
What are the benefits of micro-needling?
When your skin starts repairing itself, it turbocharges your body’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin, which provide that firm plumpness. It also helps improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks, and creates a more youthful skin tone.
Micro-needling reduces fine and deep wrinkles.
The primary appeal of micro-needling is its ability to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin, which is the key to new, youthful-looking skin. Some doctors would even go so far as to say that the procedure is the most powerful way to stop aging in its tracks and prevent new fine lines and wrinkles from forming. With its ability to trigger the generation of new skin cells, just a few sessions of micro-needling will noticeably reduce fine lines, crow’s feet, and deep wrinkles on the forehead.
Micro-needling repairs visible scars.
Professional grade micro-needling devices can be as long as 3 mm, which is twice as effective and will treat deep acne scars that occur beneath the surface of the skin.
Micro-needling reverses sun damage and pigmentation.
Once again, collagen is arguably the most vital way to improve the look of skin, and this goes far beyond reducing wrinkles. By stimulating collagen growth with micro-needling, you can also reverse sun damage and discoloration, including hyperpigmentation that comes with melasma.
Micro-needling helps aging skin.
On top of micro-needling’s ability to smooth and correct damaged skin, it also has the added bonus of tightening loose skin, which makes it great for older men and women.
Micro-needling shrinks pores.
It’s a bit counter-intuitive, but micro-needling doesn’t actually enlarge pores as you might imagine piercing your skin hundreds of times would. Rather, one major benefit of using a derma roller is that it helps pores appear much smaller. Micro-needling stimulates collagen in and around your pores, which causes them to plump and appear shrunken, if not closed.
Micro-needling makes your products work better.
One of micro-needling’s additional appeals is that it improves product absorption tremendously. Studies confirm that the treatment can actually help topical medications penetrate the skin more efficiently, allowing you to reap the full benefits of any product. This makes total sense considering the fact that micro-needling creates thousands of invisible holes in your skin that are ready to absorb products in a way clogged pores can’t.
Micro-needling can be done all over your body.
Finally, an awesome benefit of micro-needling is that this treatment isn’t exclusive to the face. It can be done on any area of skin that needs to be repaired—particularly areas that display stretch marks or acne scars, like the legs, chest, back, and butt. As few as four to six sessions could make a difference in these problem areas.
