Micro-Needling at Celestial Esthetics

What is micro-needling?

Micro-needling (also known as collagen induction therapy) induces collagen production and toughens the skin. For this treatment, Tara uses a micro-needling pen that contains very fine needles. When passed over the skin, the needles create micro “injuries” in the skin to trigger new collagen synthesis. Moreover, each micro “injury” creates an outlet that triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin. This procedure has no major side effects and beautiful results are noticeable after an average of 3-4 treatments.

The skin pen micro-needling device causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process.  Also, the micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodeling of collagen and elastin.

Microneedling at Celestial Esthetics in Colorado

Micro-needling has three phases:

Phase I: Inflammation – Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.

Phase II: Proliferation – The wound is re-built with new granulation cells, as well as a temporary (type III) collagen and elastin, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.

Phase III: Remodeling – In this phase, the wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels and the type III collagen in the newly formed tissue is replaced with stronger type I collagen. Therefore, the epidermis contracts to create a tightening or “shrink wrap” effect on the skin.

Benefits of Micro-needling Include:

Reduces Wrinkles and Fine Lines

Unfortunately, the loss of elastin and collagen cause thinning, sagging skin, and facial wrinkles. Micro-needling stimulates the production of natural elastin and collagen that reduces wrinkles and fine lines. In fact, you’ll have younger looking skin with no downtime.

Improves Scars

Micro-needling is proven to diminish the look of surgery and acne scars. This procedure breaks down old tissue and triggers the production of new elastin and collagen for healthier looking skin.

Prevents Signs of Aging

Micro-needling effectively and powerfully stops the early signs of aging as well as preventing new wrinkles and fine lines from occurring. When combined with consistent use of corrective antioxidant serums, this procedure aids in brightening your skin that results in a youthful glow.
