It is not uncommon for individuals to notice their skin becoming naturally duller as they age. The appearance of dull skin is not always represented by wrinkles or fine lines that appear on the surface. Some skin simply looks dry and lifeless. If you would describe your skin as dull, our team at Bella Tu Med Spa has a great solution for you. You can revitalize dull skin with a treatment known as micro-needling.
If this is your first time hearing about micro-needling, you likely are wondering about what the treatment actually involves. The name may seem a little intimidating, but do not let that discourage you from all the potential benefits it can provide you. This is actually an extremely effective treatment that does not commonly cause discomfort.
Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a treatment that utilizes a pen-shaped device. This device is designed to make very small micro-punctures that create channels in the skin, triggering the skin to naturally produce collagen and elastin. This is done through sending more collagen and other beneficial substances to areas that have been punctured.
The skin is wonderful at stopping potentially harmful debris from entering its surface. There is constant pressure on the skin that comes from the environment around it. Unfortunately, it also stops even beneficial things from entering like serums, lotions, and other treatments that you may use. However, when the micro-needling treatment is done, and special serums or other beneficial treatments are applied, they are now able to more effectively pass through the protective layer of skin. This helps to revitalize and moisturize at an even deeper level.
Some individuals have the idea that they need to keep applying moisturizer to their skin. While moisturizers are definitely beneficial, if your skin is never exfoliated or cleansed in the right way, and a lot of moisturizers are applied, this can lead to dull-looking skin or even breakouts. Micro-needling is the perfect option to treat this problem. Micro-needling is also beneficial for treating other skin conditions, such as mild to moderate acne scars, new or old scars, stretch marks, and irregular pore size. After receiving micro-needling treatments, most patients notice within a week or two that their skin appears more radiant and youthful.
If you are suffering from any of the skin conditions listed, or are simply interested in rejuvenating the appearance of your skin, the professionals here at Bella Tu Med Spa in Nyack, NY, would be happy to explore your specific micro-needling options with you.
