Boost Collagen and Elastin; Just a pin prick
Most of us want to feel young, as well as look young for as long as possible. However, as we age, the production of collagen and elastin, the building blocks of youthful skin, begins to decrease around the age of 25.
As if that wasn’t good enough news, collagen and elastin production take a nosedive for the menopausal woman.
What to do? In a word, Micro-needling.
Micro-needling is a highly effective treatment that uses 32 fine needles that prick past the skin’s superficial surface (epidermis) at once, through a device that looks like a pen. This device vibrates fine needles across the surface of the skin, creating miniature controlled wounds. These microscopic “wounds” stimulate the body’s natural healing response, which in turn generates collagen and elastin.
Lest this sound too medieval, harking to the days of the Spanish Inquisition, do not be alarmed. Micro-needling, done at Vasu Medical Spa, is safe, effective, and not painful. During the procedure, the only thing felt is a slight vibration across the skin’s surface. Once the numbing cream has worn off in about 1 hour, the skin will look and feel like it experienced a mild to moderate sunburn.
And, unlike the results of an actual sunburn that destroys collagen and elastin in the skin, this process boosts collagen and elastin in just a few weeks, creating a smoother, firmer skin texture as well as a reduction in the appearance of scars and/or wrinkles.
Done monthly, micro-needling along with consistent use of a sunscreen (SPF 40+), and a stylish hat will turn back the clock!
