Microneedling and Fibroblast Plasma Lift are two affordable, safe ways to improve your skin texture that are minimally invasive. These procedures are both beneficial for those seeking to limit wrinkles and scarring, reduce the appearance of stretch marks and sun damage, and even eliminate hyperpigmentation. So, how to increase collagen for a younger look? There are many advantages to choosing one of these procedures instead of surgery, such as no injections or cutting of the skin, no stitches are required, they are both quick procedures with no down-time needed, no thinning of the skin occurs, and patients see a large cost savings versus other more invasive procedures.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a procedure in which tiny needles are used to make many very small punctures on the skin. Though this may sound painful, most patients report very little pain or discomfort during the procedure, and the results are truly remarkable! This procedure works because these "micro-injuries" activate the body's natural healing response, increasing collagen production which reverses signs of aging as well as helps prevent them.
Only a few sessions are needed for people to see significant results, reducing both deep and fine wrinkles greatly. Since this procedure is so minimally invasive, patients often return to work immediately, making it an easy, more natural way to maintain one's appearance that doesn't interfere with other aspects of life.
Fibroblast Plasma Lift
Fibroblast Plasma Lift is another revolutionary, non-surgical treatment that sparks the body's natural healing process. This technique requires a small specialized "pen" that creates plasma, or an electrical arch, that gently touches the skin. The heat created is localized to a very specific spot on the skin, which makes the skin contract and tighten. Because there are no open wounds, this is a very safe procedure with little chance for negative side effects that can be caused by other treatments, such as lasers.
The name comes from the cells, aka Fibroblastus, a star-shaped cell that generates the production of collagen. By inducing this precise "trauma" to the cells, the collagen production is sparked and elastin levels are elevated. This procedure generally only requires one treatment for incredible results! The skin will begin to appear more bright and contoured just a few days after the procedure, with full healing after about 3 weeks.
The results from both procedures can have impressive longevity, with recurring procedures only needed about every 3 years! With so many benefits it's easy to see why so many people are interested in these life-changing procedures!
As with any treatment, it is crucial to do your own research and ensure you are working with a true professional who has the proper training and skill to perform these procedures. While the procedures are both very safe, they should still only be done by those who are experienced and knowledgeable about all aspects of the procedure and aftercare, as some people may not be suitable candidates for one or both of these procedures, such as those who are very prone to scarring or keloid build up.
