It’s no secret that aging is inevitable, but recent modernizations have made it so that patients can slow down the natural aging process and maintain their youthful skin. In the past, anti-aging techniques meant surgery, which is effective, but comes with invasive incisions and long recovery times. BOTOX and dermal fillers also come into play to provide subtle enhancements to the skin, but require touch-up appointments, as the injections are only temporary.
Many patients do not wish to undergo surgery and are hesitant to deal with the high maintenance required for injectable treatments; yet, they still desire a natural remedy for younger-looking skin. The solution is micro-needling, which Induction Therapies has developed through use of the Collagen P.I.N. There’s no incisions, no downtime and no injections – only the patient’s natural collagen building process that works to heal the skin and remove flaws and imperfections that we attribute to aging skin. Micro-needling is completely changing how doctors and patients view anti-aging treatment, and it is steadily taking the cosmetic industry by storm.
What Is Micro-needling?
Micro-needling is a cosmetic treatment that works to improve the texture and tone of the skin. The Collagen P.I.N. consists of small needles that you glide over the epidermal layer to create microscopic punctures in the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production. These healing agents naturally begin to restore the micro-injuries that have been made as well as the damaged skin cells responsible for wrinkles and poor skin texture, leaving patients with smoother skin and an even-toned complexion. The small channels created in the skin by the Collagen P.I.N. also allow for topical anti-aging products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the dermis and allow physicians the ability to adjust levels of penetration to suit the area of skin being treated.
Popularity Is Steadily Climbing!
Although many patients may not understand the procedural details of micro-needling, there is a good chance they have at least heard of the treatment, with its ever-increasing presence on online platforms. It’s a trendy buzzword that has found itself written about in the likes of Allure’s recent August 2016 issue, but unlike many fast fads, it actually exceeds the expectations of doctors and patients alike, and we believe it is here to stay.
Micro-needling carries many benefits, one of the most significant being its little to no downtime once treatment is completed. Patients can return to their normal daily routine as soon as they leave your office. Additionally, the micro-needles only require the body’s natural healing properties to rejuvenate the skin as opposed to injectable treatments, which merely mask imperfections for a short period of time. Laser treatments also don’t compare since micro-needling involves no heat and therefore no risk of skin pigmentation. The recovery time after micro-needling is just days, whereas injections and laser treatments can be weeks. The Collagen P.I.N. actually makes skin healthier by boosting collagen levels, and patients can continue to see results from their micro-needling treatment for up to one year. It’s effective on all skin types and is gentle enough to be used on all areas of the body.
