Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a treatment in which a needle is used to create micro-injuries on the surface of the skin, causing the body to produce collagen and elastin – two proteins that help keep skin looking firm, tight, young, and healthy. At Live Young Wellness Spa, we use the MicroPen to perform microneedling treatments.
This treatment is much less aggressive than the Contour TRL but still can help to improve fine lines, wrinkles and skin texture.
Through Live Young Wellness Spa’s minimally invasive approach, the skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. It also creates microchannels, which allow topical gels, creams, and serums to absorb into the skin more efficiently, enhancing the effects in the deeper layers of the skin.
Microneedling may help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pores, acne scars, stretch marks, and traumatic scars; improve uneven skin tone and texture; promote hair growth; and reveal softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.
