As we age, our skin naturally produces less collagen. This can lead to wrinkles, sagging skin, and other visible signs of aging. Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that can boost collagen production, giving you firmer, younger-looking skin.
Activate natural collagen production
Microneedling in Katy is a cosmetic procedure in which fine needles are used to create tiny punctures in the skin. This can help to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which can help to improve the appearance of the skin. Collagen is a fibrous protein that binds skin tissues and prevents gravity from pushing your skin downwards. The gradual loss of collagen because of the aging process leads to wrinkles, skin laxity, sunken cheeks, and other issues.
Microneedling catalyzes your body’s innate collagen production capabilities. The microneedling device creates thousands of micro-punctures on the skin’s uppermost layers to activate your body’s innate healing processes. Your body responds to the micro-injuries by stimulating cellular regeneration and collagen production. Over time, facial skin looks fuller, smoother, and more youthful. Since microneedling works by activating your innate healing properties, the results also look completely natural.
Microneedling treats the following:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Facial creases and folds
- Sunken cheeks
- Deep tear troughs
- Acne scarring
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Textural irregularities
- Other skin concerns
What to expect from your microneedling session
Microneedling in Katy is performed after a thorough consultation with your doctor. Before your treatment, the medical provider will apply a numbing gel on your face to ensure comfort. We adjust the device according to your skin type and use it to create thousands of micro-punctures on your skin’s surface. You might feel a pinch when the needles enter your skin, but the pain is minimal. The treatment concludes within an hour.
What you can expect from microneedling results
Microneedling in Katy can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and enlarged pores. It can also stimulate collagen and elastin production, which can improve the overall appearance of your skin and reverse the signs of aging. The results appear gradually over several weeks and months as your body produces new collagen fibers. But once the results appear, they last for several years.
