There is no denying that everyone gets older. After all, it certainly is better than the alternative. As we age, our skin naturally ceases the production of collagen. Collagen is the elastic protein in our skin that prevents it from sagging. Collagen production begins to decrease in the mid-20s, which the greatest reduction taking place after menopause.
Menopause will decrease collagen production by 30% in the first 5 years. Women will begin menopause between the years of 40 – 50, so this is a young age to lose collagen production. Thankfully, there is a way to increase collagen production. Pure Youth Wellness & Aesthetics offers micro-needling at our wellness clinic.
What is Micro-Needling?
This procedure pricks the skin using small, sterile needles. As the skin is injured, it will produce collagen to heal itself. This encourages the production of collagen in this body and helps restore the appearance of youth. Micro-needling is especially productive when used in culmination with other treatments at Pure Youth Wellness & Aesthetics.
What Can Micro-Needling Help With?
Micro-needling is not only useful for eliminating fine lines and wrinkles. It also has benefits for the following problems:
When micro-needling is used alongside a chemical peel, the results are astonishing. We highly recommend following a micro-needling session with a chemical peel for stubborn or deep-rooted acne scars.
- Hyperpigmentation or Sun Marks
Micro-needling forms micro-channels that assist in healing the skin on a microscopic level. Hyperpigmentation or sun marks can benefit from a micro-needling session.
- Stretch Marks
A stretch mark occurs when the skin stretches or shrinks too quickly. The collagen cannot accommodate this rapid change, so it ruptures and forms a scar. This scar is called a stretch mark. Micro-needling can assist in eliminating stretch marks because it will encourage the production of collagen.
