Over time, our skin ages, losing both tautness and elasticity. The main reason for this is fibroblast reduction. Fibroblasts are building blocks of collagen proteins and help our cells stay strong and connected. Aging causes wrinkles and sagging, which makes our skin look very dull. However, cosmetic mesotherapy by microneedling allows us to combat this process.
What is cosmetic mesotherapy by microneedling ?
It is a mechanical procedure that uses a micro-needle pen containing 12 sterile ultra-fine single-use needles. The needles are simply propelled into the skin, resulting in the formation of small perforations and surface micro bleeding. There is very little pain since the needles prick the superficial layers of the skin.
The small channels created by the needles look like micro wounds. Each injury triggers the body’s healing process, thereby also stimulating the skin’s collagen formation. The body stops producing more collagen as it ages. Microneedling is a way to restart the collagen and elastin production process, which then leads to the formation of a new layer of thicker and smoother skin.
For this procedure, the Centre Laser Sorbonne has chosen the Needle Pen : its vibrating function boosts the effectiveness of skin treatments by increasing the absorption of skincare products, while also reducing pain.
