Micro Needling

We all want tight healthy skin. As we age our epidermis or top layer of skin suffers from exposure to the elements regardless of how well you may take care of your skin. Proper skin care is only one aspect of overall skin health. The Epidermis is supported by the dermis which is the layer of skin that you cannot see but it plays a vital role in how the epidermis looks. The dermis is the part of the skin that is rich in living cells that all have their own role in making you look your best. Cells such as fibroblasts hair follicles and sebaceous cells live in the dermis.

Micro Needling Works 

The fibroblasts are cells that manufacture collagen and elastin. These two proteins give our skin a nice plump. As we age our fibroblasts begin to slow down in production of elastin and collagen. This leads to crepey sagging skin.  The problem with the wrinkles is that the dermis is not plump enough to make the skin look tight and healthy.

Micro needling wakes up the fibroblastic activity and ultimately by a series of cellular events stimulates collagen formation. In order to understand this you have to have a little knowledge of how the skin repairs itself. Paper cuts can be painful but after a few days it seems to miraculously heal. The actual injury recruits all cells necessary to help repair the injured area. The final product is a healed wound. The procedure of creating tiny micro injuries in the skin with the micro needling process called collagen induction therapy. The skin does not know the difference between a paper cut and the needle injury. Recruiting the healing cells to kick start the body’s own natural healing events transforms the once wrinkle laden skin to a softer plumper look.
