Microneedling is an aesthetic treatment lauded by many for its benefits to the tone and texture of the skin. This minimally-invasive treatment is an excellent method for improving the appearance of various skin concerns, from fine lines to scarring and more. Below, you’ll learn more about the benefits of microneedling for patients seeking healthier, more radiant skin.
The Microneedling Process
In microneedling, a numbing cream is first applied to the skin to minimize discomfort, followed by a solution of hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. Then, a microneedling pin is applied over the surface of the skin, creating controlled micro-injuries. This process stimulates natural collagen production in the skin while improving absorption of the nutrient solution.
The Benefits of Microneedling
Restore Collagen Levels
As people age, the amount of collagen in the skin naturally decreases. This drop in collagen production leads to signs of skin aging including fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity.
By spurring the natural healing process in the skin, microneedling treatment stimulates collagen production. As collagen levels gradually increase after microneedling, you’ll notice firmer, healthier-looking skin.
Diminish Skin Imperfections
Microneedling is an excellent solution for many different skin concerns aside from signs of aging, including scarring, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, and poor skin texture. By breaking down the damaged skin tissue, microneedling encourages new, healthy skin cells to reach the surface of the skin. Greater collagen production will also improve the skin’s texture, reducing the appearance of scarring and enlarged pores.
Speed and Convenience
Microneedling treatment takes only 15 to 30 minutes to complete, with the duration depending on the size of the treatment area. As a quick, minimally-invasive treatment, patients can receive microneedling treatment without interfering with their busy schedules. Additionally, minimal downtime is required after microneedling, so you can return to your regular activities promptly.
