Collagen and elastin are critical components of healthy, youthful and resilient skin. In our younger years, our bodies produce these proteins abundantly, ensuring our skin is firm and supple and capable of repairing itself when it sustains damage. As we grow older, however, the production of collagen and elastin decreases, and the existing fibers weaken and break down. This is when we begin to see the telltale outward signs of aging and environmental damage, like pigmentation, wrinkles, lax skin and large pores. New collagen and elastin fibers must develop faster than they break down to maintain the skin’s health and youthful appearance.
Microneedling is a technique that harnesses your body’s ability to renew itself by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. At Body Symmetry MD, we provide our clients with the most advanced treatments to preserve, maintain and restore their skin and body. For both women and men, microneedling can do wonders for many common concerns that detract from your complexion.
Microneedling is a safe, effective and minimally-invasive therapeutic treatment that penetrates the dermis with multiple tiny needles to stimulate your natural healing and collagen production processes.
