Before the summer ends, schedule an appointment at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center to rejuvenate your skin with the latest in microneedling technology. Known for its therapeutic effects on thin, delicate skin and its rejuvenating effects on even the toughest skin, microneedling is an exciting advancement in skin rejuvenation.
Between hiking, beach days and afternoons spent at family cookouts, the amount of time people spend outside during the summer months seems endless. Soaking in the sunshine may feel good in the moment, but prolonged sun exposure has significant consequences, including the formation of lines, wrinkles, and discoloration. And, prolonged sun exposure also causes destruction of the collagen in your skin.
You may know that collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body — it’s the substance that holds our bodies together and is found in our bones, muscles, skin and tendons. It’s also what keeps our skin looking fresh and young. Although collagen is present in ample amounts during our youth, it’s production diminishes as we age — the collagen in your skin today will naturally become less prominent with time.
Microneedling is an essential step in helping to reverse the loss of collagen that occurs from both natural processes and the damaging effects of the sun. In fact, one of the primary goals of microneedling treatments is to re-energize your skin by producing more collagen, helping to make up for any collagen that has been lost over time. Imagine your skin tighter and more supple, with newly emerging skin layers unaffected by time, sun exposure or age. Treatments are so effective in stimulating collagen growth that microneedling can even be used to help reduce scars and stretch marks!
A variety of treatment options are available. During each microneedling treatment, your skin is infused with nutrients, pigmentation is reduced, and new collagen growth is stimulated. The procedure can even be performed painlessly and with zero downtime.
Both natural aging and damage to the skin from environmental exposure are two things everyone experiences, but the changes from this do not have to be permanent. Microneedling enables you to recapture some of your youth on your own terms in a safe, effective manner. Take back control of your appearance today and schedule a consultation for a series of microneedling treatments.
