One of the hottest skincare trends today is Microneedling (AKA collagen induction therapy). The process involves using tiny thin needles to create hundreds of tiny micro-puncture wounds into the skin. When done in an office by a trained physician or esthetician, the treatment is virtually painless and can be very effective. Just a few sessions will bring noticeable results with minimal side effects and downtime.
Lines, wrinkles, dark spots and sagging skin are the result of aging skin because as we age, we produce less collagen and elastin, so skin gets thinner. Collagen and elastin are proteins that help firm up the skin and return its fullness and bounce. The microneedling treatment speeds up the healing process and creates more collagen and elastin in the skin which results in smoother, tighter and younger appearing skin. It also helps with scars and stretch marks and even tightens pores.
Another benefit of microneedling is that it allows topical products to penetrate better and work more effectively. Microneedling is not just for the face. It can also be done on other problem areas like legs, chest, back and more.
Dr. Christy Jun, Medical Aesthetics Director at Bella Mia Medical Spa in Waikiki remarks, “Microneedling uses the body’s own healing mechanism and is a natural way to achieve skin rejuvenation. Here at Bella Mia Medical Spa, we use SkinPen® which has 14 medical grade stainless steel needles (imagine a tattoo gun with 14 needles instead of just one) that go in and out at high speed so the client gets hundreds of punctures within a short time.”
It is best to receive treatments by a professional who will fully inform clients and provide detailed after-care. For more information and to schedule an appointment, call (808) 208-8888 or go online at www.bellamiamedspahi.com
