Finding out how to get rid of under-eye wrinkles can be frustrating. Sure, there are lots of creams, solutions and serums. But, even if you try enough of them to find one that works, the results don’t last very long.
In addition, chemical solutions might not be the best way to get rid of under-eye wrinkles. It turns out that your body has everything it takes to fix the problem. You just need a way to trigger its natural healing and restorative processes. And micro-needling is an effective way to do that.
How Does Microneedling Work
Microneedling uses small needles, which are set into a small roller, to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in your skin. Collagen and elastin are proteins that help your skin return to its original shape, give it elasticity and make it stronger.
As the roller is applied across an affected area, the needles lightly prick the skin. Those minimally invasive pinpricks trigger your body to start rebuilding the skin, which it does by producing the collagen and elastin, and new skin tissue, that smooths, firms and tones your skin.
The Causes of Wrinkles Under Your Eyes
Microneedling actually targets the causes of fine lines and wrinkles. As part of your natural ageing process, collagen and elastin production decreases. And, unfortunately, some habits and circumstances that affect the health of your skin can increase at the same time, including:
- Lack of sleep
- Alcohol consumption
- Poor diet
How to Use Microneedling for Under Eye Wrinkles
You can find derma rollers for do-it-yourself micro-needling at home. However, the needles in DIY derma rollers are duller. Also, without proper training and experience in derma rolling, it will take you longer to see the results, and you might never get the best results.
Professional micro-needling treatments, like those we offer here at Ashgrove Spa, are more efficient, meaning less needling, and get better results. We also complement your micro-needling treatment with other wrinkle-shrinking products, including Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C to maximize the wrinkle-reducing effects.
