Microneedling is one of the most popular and effective skincare treatments on the market. Whatever your skin concerns, it’s likely that microneedling can help. If you’re considering this treatment option, then it can be helpful to know the ways that you can benefit. Here are the top 5 benefits of microneedling with our aesthetic team.
1. Revives Collagen Production
As we age, our bodies begin to gradually lessen the production of collagen in the skin. Collagen is a vital component to keeping the skin youthful, firm, and strong. Another way to refer to microneedling is “collagen induction therapy”. This is because the needles used cause minuscule injuries to the skin, and part of the body’s natural healing response is to increase collagen production. Increased collagen can improve skin health and integrity, as well as increase its suppleness over time.
2. Smooths Skin
Microneedling treatments have a cumulative effect on the skin. They build up the skin’s strength and elasticity over time. As the skin is restored naturally, it will begin to look fuller and firmer. Undergoing these treatments can lead to a reduction or even elimination of fine lines and wrinkles without surgery. Microneedling is fast, as most treatments take only an hour or less. It’s also minimally invasive and requires absolutely no downtime. There may be some redness after a session, but it quickly goes away as the healing begins.
3. Enhances Skin Tone
Skin tone can be frustratingly uneven, especially with concerns like hyperpigmentation or sun damage. Microneedling can be a valid option to help with these issues. Skin tone can improve dramatically with the use of these treatments. Dark areas can lighten, and the promotion of new cell growth also makes the skin look younger and gives it an even complexion.
4. Helps Diminish Scars
Scars that remain from acne are a common skin concern. Microneedling can reduce or eliminate leftover acne scars and is one of the best treatment options available. The collagen and elastin that are produced in the skin after treatments can fill in old acne scarring. Having the ability to get non-surgical treatment for these blemishes can increase confidence and self-esteem. For people whose scars may be caused by trauma or surgery as opposed to acne, this treatment may also be an option to consider. It can vastly improve the texture and appearance of surgical or injury scars.
5. Facilitates Distribution Of Platelet-Rich-Plasma
Platelet-rich plasma is a relatively new treatment. It uses your own blood to create a rich serum that can be used to speed up healing and regeneration. Microneedling’s small wounds allow the plasma to sink into the skin and be absorbed much more fully and easily in the deeper layers.
