Do you have fine lines?
Do you have acne scars?
Do you have pesky stretch marks that just won’t go away?
Show your skin who’s boss with amazing microneedling technology! Fine lines, acne scars, stretch marks and even sun damage don’t stand a chance.
Does the idea of needles bother you? If you’re thinking of the large needles used for acupuncture treatment, rest easy. That is not what microneedling consists of.
Microneedling is a simple treatment that stimulates the natural production of collagen in your body with minimal epidermal damage or trauma. After just three to five treatments, the results are beautiful skin and overall improved skin appearance.
Collagen Is King
Collagen is a protein in your body that makes your tissues strong and resilient, keeping your skin taut and tight. When your body doesn’t produce enough collagen, your skin begins to sag and stretch.
Our body naturally produces collagen from the proteins we consume from food by breaking down ingested proteins into amino acids. These amino acids then transform into collagen, which strengthens connective tissues like tendons, ligaments and bones.
Many factors affect collagen production – puberty, menopause and environmental pollutants, to name a few – but regardless of the causes of diminished collagen production, technology like microneedling allows you to kick-start your collagen so that you can have the gorgeous skin of your dreams.
As mentioned earlier, microneedling is nothing like acupuncture. At AesthetiCare, we use an FDA-approved device called the SkinPen, which is specifically designed to target the collagen in your body to improve the look of fine lines, acne scars and overall skin appearance.
In this procedure, a spring-loaded tip containing microneedles creates little channels in the skin that enhance the creation of new skin cells and the production of natural collagen in your body.
The benefits of microneedling include improving the appearance of stretch marks and wrinkles as well as enhancing overall skin texture. There are no side effects and very little to no downtime!
As your skin heals, new color is revealed, stretch marks fade and you’re left to enjoy beautiful, smooth skin.
Call us to schedule your complimentary consultation to discuss whether microneedling is right for you. Our AesthetiCare team will be more than happy to meet with you and address all your skin care goals.
Once you’ve completed your microneedling treatment, take care of your skin by properly cleansing and protecting it from harmful pollutants and the harsh sun, especially since those summer months are upon us!
