The world of anti-aging offers up a dizzying array of products and services, and one that rises to the top is microneedling. At Khloe Lynn MedSpa & Skin Care, licensed aesthetician Danielle Soler offers microneedling, helping her clients in Stratford, Connecticut, revitalize and refresh their skin. If you’d like to explore how microneedling can breathe new life into aging and dull skin, please call the spa or use the online scheduling tool to set up an appointment.
In order to better understand how microneedling works, it’s helpful to step back and take a look at what happens to your skin as you age.
First, exposure — mainly to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays — breaks down your skin in a process known as photoaging. This damage becomes more obvious as the years go by, especially on highly-exposed areas of your skin, such as your face and neck.
As you age, your skin also naturally loses its structural support, namely collagen and elastin, which are the two proteins responsible for the elasticity and tone in your tissue. This loss is especially acute as women pass through menopause and their estrogen levels drop off.
The breakdown of your skin due to exposure alongside the natural loss of support leaves you with skin that’s wrinkled, sagging, and mottled.
Microneedling, which is also called collagen induction therapy, is an innovative technique in which Ms. Soler uses a special instrument outfitted with tiny needles to create a matrix of microchannels across the surface of your skin.
These “injuries” elicit a mild healing response in your skin, which responds with renewed collagen production to repair and strengthen your tissue.
By creating a network of micro-injuries through microneedling, a renewed collagen and elastin production occurs in these areas, lifting the entire surface of your skin.
The microneedling services at Khloe Lynn MedSpa & Skin Care are ideal for:
Ultimately, the renewed support from below benefits the entire surface area, leaving you with smoother, more evenly toned skin.
Most clients benefit from a series of treatments, which Ms. Soler spaces out by several weeks to allow time for the body to respond with the building blocks for renewed support.
During your initial consultation, she examines your target areas and comes up with an appropriate timeline.
Your results are gradual as you make your way through the treatments. Patience is key as your body responds to the microneedling and your collagen production comes online. Optimal results are usually 6-12 weeks after your final session
