Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a way to stimulate your skin’s production of collagen. Collagen is an essential structural protein within your skin that helps to keep it firm and healthy. Collagen loss significantly contributes to wrinkles, lines, and other features that make your skin look older and more worn.
By prompting your skin to produce more collagen with microneedling, you can minimize lines and wrinkles and encourage older scars and blemishes to complete their healing process.
During a microneedling treatment at Strive IV and Wellness, your provider uses a handpiece or roller with a collection of very fine needles to create tiny, evenly-spaced holes in your skin’s surface. Your skin treats these holes as injuries and quickly begins the healing process to repair them with new collagen and tissue.
If you have an aversion to needles, you’re not alone in being hesitant to try microneedling. However, microneedling isn’t painful and doesn’t feel like being poked with many needles, as you might expect.
During your treatment, you might notice a scratching sensation as the tiny needles penetrate only the surface layer of your skin. You might feel slightly more discomfort as the device passes the bonier regions of your face, like your temples, forehead, and jawline. However, most people agree that microneedling is very tolerable.
Microneedling can help improve numerous common blemishes, textural issues, and other unfavorable skin features. Strive IV and Wellness might recommend microneedling to you if you have:
The initial results of microneedling, like the skin tightening and pore reduction, can be seen immediately after treatment. But it may take multiple microneedling sessions to achieve the effect you want to see. Your Strive IV and Wellness provider can help you plan an initial series of treatments as well as future follow-up treatments to maintain your smoother, healthier skin.
