If you’ve been looking for a way to improve skin texture, consider microneedling. The name can be confusing to some, but microneedling is a very effective way of using your skin’s own rejuvenation process to improve its texture.

Collagen is the main protein in your skin that gives it structure. In youthful skin, collagen is replaced regularly, keeping surfaces smooth and supple. Over time, our production of collagen naturally slows, resulting in gaps that appear as the fine lines and wrinkles associated with aging.

Microneedling uses a special tool with tiny needles that create microscopic injuries on the surface of the skin, just enough to activate the healing process. The body reacts by stimulating collagen-producing cells, which builds this protein to fill in the gaps and increase your skin’s elasticity. With regular treatments, many issues that affect skin texture can be resolved.

The procedure is minimally invasive and takes about 30 minutes. In most cases, best results are achieved with three to five once-a-month treatments. The affordable procedure is safe, effective, and chemical-free.

Microneedling reduced the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, large pores, stretch marks, and scarring. The natural healing process improves your skin’s tone and texture and gives you a smooth, youthful look.
