Collagen and the Benefits of Microneedling

Many people on Long Island want to improve the appearance of their facial skin. Microneedling is one treatment that can rejuvenate skin, minimize fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of pores and improve skin texture and tone. This FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment helps to stimulate the production of collagen, essential to the development of fresh, new skin.

At Cold Spring Plastic Surgery, microneedling is one of the esthetician services we offer to rejuvenate the look and feel of your skin. Our skilled aesthetician provides relaxing, effective non-surgical options to improve the appearance of your skin.

How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling is used to treat different skin conditions and makes use of multiple tiny, sterile needles to create “micro-injuries” on the surface of the skin. These tiny injuries prompt a deeper layer of skin, to rebuild and regenerate. It can also be used to encourage deeper penetration of topical skincare treatments like vitamin C, serums, and essences.

The “micro-injuries” created through microneedling increase collagen production, sparking healing factors to regenerate the skin. An essential protein, collagen keeps the skin appearing youthful, stretchy, firm, and smooth. With time and aging, collagen production naturally decreases, which can exacerbate the signs of aging. Other damage to the skin, like acne scars or stretch marks, can also reduce collagen production.

Because microneedling boosts collagen production and the growth of new skin, it can address concerns about texture, hyperpigmentation, scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The full results of microneedling may become apparent after the treatment is finished as your skin regenerates.

What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?

Microneedling in Huntington can boost the appearance of the complexion for some time to come as your skin continues to produce collagen and elastin. It reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines as your body produces new skin, which can make wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, and other signs of aging less visible.

It can also help to address the effects of acne scars through increased production of collagen. Sun damage, like age spots or areas of hyperpigmentation, can often also be improved with microneedling as the rejuvenating process evens the skin tone as healthy new skin cells are generated.

Because microneedling creates tiny injuries to the skin, some may be concerned that it may increase the appearance of pores. However, when the collagen surrounding your pores receives stimulation from the treatment, your skin may plump up around your pores. This reduces the appearance of pores, giving you a glowing, smooth look.

How Can Microneedling Benefit Your Skincare Routine?

Microneedling can also enhance your skincare routine. After your microneedling session, your skin may absorb the active ingredients in serums, creams, and gels more rapidly, delivering them effectively to your dermis for maximum effect. After your treatment, apply your favorite skincare products or the medical aesthetician recommendations at Cold Spring Plastic Surgery to enhance the benefits of your skincare treatments.

Microneedling is also a great option to improve the look and feel of your skin because you can enjoy a glowing, healthy complexion only 24-72 hours after your treatment. You can schedule microneedling shortly before an event or photoshoot to enjoy the benefits of this aesthetic service.
