One of the skin care goals that many of our patients are trying to achieve is to improve their skin’s tone and texture.   Some have pre-mature aging causing fine lines and wrinkles while others are looking to minimize scars from acne.

Traditionally, lasers have been a go-to treatment for the improvement of tone and texture of facial skin, however, there’s a new treatment emerging on the skincare market called Microneedling, [also known as Collagen Induction Therapy] that uses a specially-designed instrument with microscopic needles to puncture the skin, less than 1 millimeter deep, with numerous tiny pin-pricks.

These tiny wounds stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin as they heal.  This increased production of collagen and elastin plumps, and firms the facial skin.  As the skin heals from the tiny wounds, the newly formed elastin will help to reduce the appearance of acne scars and fine lines.

 Most patients need between 3 – 5 treatments depending on an individual’s skin condition.  There is minimal down time with most patients experiencing redness and inflammation.   Many spas and doctors offices offer Microneedling, however, physicians can offer a more deeply penetrating treatment.  Both day spas and doctors infuse special serums into the skin during the treatment to encourage skin rejuvenation.

 The MEG 21 with Supplamine® Antioxidant Boost is an ideal serum to infuse during a Microneedling treatment.  First, it’s enriched with Supplamine®, a novel ingredient that stimulates collagen synthesis and at the same time decreases the inflammation associated with Microneedling.  Additionally, it contains a potent antioxidant cocktail, rich in botanical Vitamin C that will help to encourage skin rejuvenation.  Antioxidant Boost is also a source of anti-inflammatory and healing antioxidants.  The scientifically advanced ingredients all work to enhance the overall effects of the Microneedling treatment.

 Combining Micorneedling with a sophisticated home skincare routine can help to enhance skin’s tone and texture.
