One of the most common skin health-related questions is, “how can I tighten my skin?” It’s not unusual for people to desire tight skin because it tends to be smoother and more youthful looking. However, it’s a common misconception that loose, and sometimes saggy skin is only associated with aging.

One of the most important parts of maintaining healthy-looking skin is maintaining your collagen levels. Collagen is essentially the structural component of your skin, allowing it to maintain its shape and avoid becoming wrinkly or sagging.

When this happens, your skin is rebuilt stronger and more youthful looking than before. These punctures can be created on just about any part of the skin and go through only the epidermis and part of the dermis. Think about it like aerating your lawn. When you aerate your lawn,...

The process of microneedling is used to remodel the skin by increasing the amount of the protein collagen in the skin. During this procedure, a certified skin care professional will create precise and controlled micro injuries to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.

Acupuncture is the strategic placement of needles into the skin to relieve pain and restore balance to the body, and it is one of the oldest forms of medicine still practiced.
