Wrinkles typically appear as a result of the aging processes resulting in a thinning of the epidermal layers of the skin as they lose the ability to retain moisture. Wrinkling of the skin is caused by habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and various other factors. The dermal layer of the skin thins and produces less and less collagen over time.
The skin being the outer-layer of all our body receives a significant amount of abuse form all the elements and is prone to show the consequences over time. Blemishes on the skin might have many different origins like exposure to the sun, active or history of acne, and the use of some medications. Others might be the result of pregnancy, burns, cuts, falls or other accidents. However, all these conditions can be improved or eliminated with the science of micro-needling.
The principle behind this technique is based on the biological capacity our own bodies have to heal. Provoking a controlled trauma to a specific area of the body and infusing the skin with appropriate serums to accelerate the process sends signals to the body to start producing new collagen and new skin cells. The Meso-pen® promotes a process of new skin growth through the science of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). The most effective way to stimulate or induce new skin is by micro-needling with the Meso-pen’s® vertical stamping method. This new stimulation can be done quickly and easily while keeping the epidermis intact and down-time to a minimum.
Your skincare professional can consult you on a prescribed treatment. Skin conditions are different as well as the age of each patient. 2-3 aggressive treatments will provide a noticeable difference, however 5-6 might be needed to accomplish more dramatic results.
