Dealing With Deep Wrinkles
Deeper wrinkles are caused by degradation of the structure of the skin – Elastin, Collagen and Fat. Did you know that loss of fat means that wrinkling and sagging usually go hand in hand?
What do we do?? We fill in the creases by adding collagen and elastin! Don’t fret it can be done! The most natural and effective treatment in my opinion is “Collagen Induction Therapy” or Micro Needling. Tiny needles are gently rolled over the face to trick the skin that it has been damaged which sends signals to produce collagen and elastin. Sending it to the surface means filling in lines and adding thickness to the skin overall. This safe and minimally invasive treatment, is virtually painless and incredibly effective. The micro-punctures stimulate the body’s natural “wound healing” processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production which is the key to new, youthful-looking skin. Therefore reversing as well as preventing signs of aging. With its ability to trigger the generation of new skin cells, just a few sessions of micro needling will noticeably reduce fine lines, crow’s feet, and deep wrinkles on the forehead. The treatment utilizes the body’s own natural healing mechanisms. I recommend having 4 treatments 2 months apart for best results.
