Collagen is all that stands between you and your wrinkles – microneedling can help!
Microneedling is a procedure used to create tiny micro-channels in the skin to kickstart its natural healing abilities and make your skincare products and other treatments even more effective. See below for five of our favorite benefits to microneedling.
Stimulate Collagen Production
As we age, our bodies create less collagen, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling stimulates your skin’s natural collagen production, thereby increasing elasticity. Elastin production can fight lines, wrinkles, and other signs of premature aging. At Ooh La La, we like to combine this treatment with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP speeds up the skin’s healing process and enhances microneedling’s effects even further.
Because microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production, it is also extremely effective in addressing acne and other scars on your skin.
Microneedling also helps shrink pores. When the collagen around your pores is stimulated, the area around each pore plumps, making the pore itself almost disappear.
The micro-channels microneedling creates allows your skincare and other topical treatments to penetrate even deeper. This makes it the prime time to apply your favorite skincare products.
Fewer Side Effects
Microneedling’s effects are comparable to laser and chemical treatments, but without the long downtime. With microneedling, you’ll enjoy a glowing complexion 24-72 hours after microneedling, whereas laser resurfacing recovery may take 3-10 days.
Though you’ll see some benefit of microneedling after just one treatment, we recommend a series of three treatments to boost the appearance of your complexion for months afterwards.
