Microneedling with the Rejuvapen
Collagen and elastin are fibers that make up the supporting structure of the skin. Collagen gives its firmness while ekastin keeps skin tight. Beginning at the age of 20, the production of collagen and elastin decreases by 1% per year.Eventually resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and loss of skin tone and elasticity that causes your skin to sag. When you smile, squint or frown those facial movements stress the matrix of your skin Over time. That stress contributes to more lines and wrinkles. Both of these fibers are plentiful in young skin and start to break down with natural aging and as a result of sun exposure, smoking, and excess sugar intake. The best way to boost collagen and elastin in the skin is to turn on fibroblast cells that produce these fibers naturally. The skin’s healing process is driven by these cells, which race to repair skin by replenishing collagen to rebuild the structural integrity of the skin.
Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation procedure that uses tiny needles to create painless micro injuries in your skin. In response to these micro injuries, your body initiates its natural wound healing process. During this healing process, existing collagen and elastin are remodeled. Microneedling pushes the epidermal cells aside with minimal cell damage. One of the advantages of microneedling is that it doesn’t cause heat shock proteins( proteins produced in response to exposure to stressful conditions), which can lead to pigmentation issues. Microneedling using the Rejuvapen improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars with little to no down time.
