Collagen: The Keeper of Youthful Beauty

The skin is the largest organ in the human body, and its job is to protect us from the outside world. It comprises many different layers, each with a specific purpose. The deepest layer is the subcutaneous layer, which comprises fat and connective tissue. The next layer is the dermis, which comprises collagen, elastin, and other proteins. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, responsible for the skin’s strength and elasticity.

As you age, your skin loses collagen and elastin, making the skin thinner and less elastic. Collagen is a fibrous protein that binds your skin tissues together, so the loss of collagen leads to the formation of wrinkles and facial sagging. In fact, most signs of aging can be attributed to the gradual loss of collagen and elastin. Thanks to modern aesthetic medicine, we can stimulate natural collagen production and help you reclaim youthful beauty.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that activates natural collagen production. Microneedling in Golden involves using a special device to create thousands of micro-punctures on the skin’s uppermost layers to trigger your body’s innate healing processes. Your body responds to the micro-injuries by activating collagen production and cellular regeneration. Over time, as your skin heals, it looks firmer, tighter, and more youthful. Microneedling can help with wrinkles, fine lines, skin laxity, acne scarring, and textural irregularities.

Microneedling Targets:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin laxity
  • Sagging skin
  • Acne scarring
  • Acne breakouts
  • Textural irregularities
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough skin
  • Dull complexion

Microneedling with Procell Therapies

Golden Laser Aesthetics offers microneedling using Procell Therapies, a cutting-edge biotechnology that induces stellar transformation to the appearance of your skin. The traditional microneedling treatment involves making thousands of micro-punctures on the skin’s surface to stimulate cellular regeneration and healing. Take your Procell microneedling treatment one step further by opting to add on human growth-factor serums derived from bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells, which can catalyze the healing process with minimal inflammation.

Microneedling FAQs

Am I a good candidate for microneedling?

If you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of your fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, or textural irregularities, you can proceed with microneedling in Golden. This treatment involves activating your body’s innate healing processes, so it’s safe and suitable for most skin types. However, microneedling isn’t suitable for people with active skin infections or disorders.

What happens during the microneedling treatment?

Microneedling is a fairly simple process. The medical provider will cleanse your facial skin and apply a numbing gel to ensure comfort. After calibrating the microneedling device according to your skin type, the medical provider will move it across your facial skin to create thousands of micro-injuries. After the treatment, the cosmetic provider will apply a soothing gel to your skin to reduce post-treatment discomfort. The treatment concludes within an hour.

What are the side effects of microneedling?

Microneedling involves minimal side effects, such as redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising around the treatment areas. Most side effects dissipate within a few hours, but your skin may remain slightly flushed for a day or two.

Is there any downtime?

Microneedling in Golden doesn’t involve downtime — you may resume your daily activities and work immediately after the treatment. However, you should avoid exfoliation, harsh soaps, direct sunlight, and strenuous workouts until the side effects dissipate completely.

When will I see the results?

The neocollagenesis process, i.e., the production of new collagen, can take several weeks. Your skin may look and feel tighter a few days after the treatment, but the final results appear a few weeks after your treatment.

How many microneedling sessions do I need?

Most patients notice considerable improvements in texture and firmness after 2 to 3 treatments. But if you have acne scarring, skin laxity, or wrinkles, you may need 6 treatments or more. Our medical providers will recommend the appropriate number of treatments for you.
