At Fountain of You MD, we offer microneedling in Virginia Beach because the loss of collagen is the primary reason for sagging skin, loss of elasticity, and the eventual formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen is a fibrous protein that acts as glue for your skin. It binds your skin tissues together and holds them upright against the force of gravity. But as you grow older, your body’s ability to produce collagen is compromised, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles. The loss of collagen also affects your body’s ability to heal properly, which results in acne scars and textural irregularities that don’t go away.
Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation technique that activates collagen production to reverse the signs of aging. Microneedling involves using a specialized device to make thousands of micro-channels on the skin’s surface. Your body responds to these micro-injuries by activating the healing process, which involves skin cell regeneration and collagen production. Over time, your body produces new collagen fibers to fill out the acne scars, smoothen away wrinkles, and make your skin look firmer and more youthful. We use SkinPen to customize the treatment according to each individual’s unique skin type.
