Some of the most common signs of aging include fine lines and wrinkles. They are very insidious in the way that they slowly creep into your appearance. Once they are there, it can feel like fine lines and wrinkles are what defines who and what you are. When you smile, you may even feel self-conscious because you know that your fine lines and wrinkles are coming to the fore. Fortunately, microneedling has been shown to be an effective option for treating those frustrating fine lines and wrinkles.
It is good to have a basic idea of how fine lines and wrinkles develop in order to understand how and why micro-needling works to treat them. Fine lines and wrinkles can happen due to smiling, frowning and making other facial expressions over the years. In many cases, they are also caused because we don’t have enough moisture in our skin. These signs of aging are the results of your face going through the aging process. One of the unfortunate side effects of getting older is losing facial volume. Wrinkles can also become more pronounced when you are exposed to rough environments that affect your skin.
The aging process leads to the loss of collagen and elastin as well. There is nothing that you can do to stop this on your own. Micro-needling is an amazing treatment that can encourage your body to produce more collagen and elastin, thereby slowing down the aging process and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Micro-needling has been shown to be exceptionally powerful in treating the fine lines that appear on the top layer of your skin. Oftentimes, a series of treatments are done on a regular basis to produce the desired results. These treatments can also be done in conjunction with hydrating products and other topical solutions. The micro-channels created during the micro-needling procedure will actually allow these hydrating products to penetrate your skin better.
Micro-needling is a powerful tool. When it is coupled with a good skin care regimen, it can help to remove the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face, giving you a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
