What is a Cross-Linked Hyaluronic Acid Ampoule?
Microneedling with Cross-Linked Hyaluronic Acid is a cosmetic procedure that encourages collagen production using small, sterilized needles. It may help smooth, firm, and tone skin and improve the appearance of scars, acne, and wrinkles. Microneedling has gained popularity for its growing list of benefits. It is said to rejuvenate and plump the skin with minimal discomfort and very little downtime, and it can be adjusted to fit each person’s needs. The benefits of micro-needling can include:
- Reducing the appearance of scars, including acne scars
- Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Reducing enlarged pores
- Reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, or dark spots
- Smoothing uneven skin tone
- Improving skin elasticity
- Reducing the appearance of stretch marks
- Reducing the appearance of scars
- Promoting hair growth in people with alopecia
Microneedling is used to improve skin tone and texture, treating the appearance of scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, and pigmentation marks. This is a non-invasive treatment that involves using a device to create tiny holes in the skin’s surface, followed by the application of a topical product directly onto the surface for a deeper level of absorption and penetration into the skin.
Microneedling paired with hyaluronic acid, a powerful moisture-binding ingredient, provides the benefit of adding plumpness and hydration to the skin. It also prevents visible signs of aging.
What Is Microneedling with Hyaluronic Acid?
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), uses the skin’s ability to heal itself by puncturing the dermis of the skin with a microscopic needle, triggering the production of new collagen.
Microneedling is suitable for all skin types and colors. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in your body that binds to and absorbs water and gives fullness and plumpness to the skin. Since your body makes less hyaluronic acid as you get older, adding this topical to your micro-needling treatment increases hydration to absorb into the skin, and increases the skin’s ability to utilize these nutrients, leading to plump, smooth, and youthful skin results.
What Results Can I Expect With Microneedling With Hyaluronic Acid?
Microneedling has proven to be an effective procedure on its own, but studies show that the results can be optimized when paired with special products and serums such as hyaluronic acid.
The micro needling process opens up the skin and allows it to better absorb products into a deeper level of the skin. Hyaluronic acid when absorbed into the skin after microneedling, can aid in adding volume and providing nourishing hyaluronic acid to the skin. When paired with micro-needling, the repair process begins almost immediately resulting in softened wrinkles and scars, as well as a thicker dermis.
The best and most common areas for treatment are the Neck, Arms, Decollete (Low neckline), and Face.
