As your body ages it slows down in the production of various proteins and hormones which the body needs to keep looking younger and youthful. The skin is the first organ to show signs of aging as the loss of elastin, collagen and moisture mean that your skin becomes more prone to wrinkles, fine lines, age-related acne as well as developing pigmentation and suffering from sagginess.
Microneedling uses collagen induction therapy to restore your skin to it's former glory by working with the body's own repair system. At Skinfidelty we have the safest microneedling technology on the planet: The SkinPen. The first and only device both FDA approved and is used internationally.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a process through which the upper layer (epidermis) of the skin receives tiny, micro holes that pierce down to a depth of 2.5mm. In some cases, this depth can be deeper but it depends largely on what you’re targeting. The body reacts to these micro holes by signaling to your skin that it needs to repair itself.
This kickstarts and boosts the production of more collagen and elastin in your skin and initiates the healing process. The excess elastin and collagen are great for your skin, helping not only to close the micro holes but also to smoothen out the texture as well as get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. Depending on the condition of your skin, these results might be major or might only be slightly noticeable.
Microneedling is usually conducted by numbing the skin so that there is no discomfort from the needles which are being pierced into the skin. This means that process is completely non-invasive and has no discomfort associated with it.
