Collagen Induction Therapy - Why You Should Start ASAP

Taking care of your skin is important; we all know that! While there are endless services out there, finding what works best for you or something that works at all can be troublesome. Mint & Needle aims to cut through the busy work for you, so you can focus on what you do best: being fabulous. 

While lesser known, Collagen Induction Therapy packs a big punch. Collagen Induction Therapy is a minimally-invasive treatment designed to improve appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars by stimulating existing collagen and elastin. 

 

How does it work?

Collagen Induction Therapy procedures involve microneedling. There are many different services offered that involve these collagen-boosting procedures, and only include reduced risks of bruising and swelling. 

  • Mint & Needle’s Microneedling: This minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure uses a device with tiny needles to penetrate the skin to promote natural collagen production and growth factors that leave your skin with improved texture, color, and tone. Want to boost this service? Add PRF to increase the collagen induction goodness. 
  • Mint & Needle’s Ultherapy: Ultherapy® is a non-surgical face and neck treatment developed by Ulthera, Inc. that delivers ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production below the skin’s surface that helps tighten and lift the skin. The device uses ultrasound technology to lift and tone loose or sagging skin without any significant downtime. It is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive treatment, with the ability to stimulate production of your body’s own collagen and elastin from deep within the skin's layers.
  • Mint & Needle’s Botox & Facial Service: This facial hydrates your skin and reduces pore sizes. We use a device called AQUAGOLD™️ which treats the skin with tiny microneedles. These tiny needles inject your skin with collagen, reducing the look of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and so much more. Undergoing this pain-free treatment will ultimately help promote the growth of healthy skin tissue and collagen, leaving you with a picture-perfect glow. 

 

But, what is collagen? 

Collagen is a protein in your body that provides your skin with its beloved strength and elasticity. Without it, we’d be left with dry, cracked, and wrinkled skin. 

Collagen is produced naturally by the body, but unfortunately, as we age, the body’s production of it slows. Starting in our mid-20s, we begin losing collagen. 

 

At what age should collagen therapy begin? 

Now! In our 20s, most aren’t thinking about anti-aging measures, but the truth is, the earlier you start, the better impact Collagen Induction Therapy will have on your skin. 

Don’t fret if you’re well past your 20s. Consider beginning your collagen therapy as soon as possible to experience the best results. Give your skin the love it deserves, show off your glow, and book your consultation today
