Microneedling - What Are The Benefits?
If you’re noticing the signs of age appearing on your skin, including wrinkles and fine lines, discoloration, skin laxity and so on, you may have wondered about what microneedling can do for you.
Microneedling is a highly effective, minimally-invasive anti-aging skin treatment, known as the “go to” treatment for skin regeneration, tightening and remodeling. So what are the benefits of this innovative treatment?
Microneedling rejuvenates the skin without incisions or scarring
Microneedling counteracts the signs of age by stimulating new skin growth with a handheld device that penetrates the skin with fine, tiny needles that create “micro injuries.” These micro injuries stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, the natural proteins that build firm, healthy, and supple skin.
No incisions are required to achieve these results, and thus there is no scarring.
Microneedling requires no downtime
Microneedling requires zero downtime, making it a top choice for patients who don’t want to worry about a long recovery period, but they do want to refresh and revitalize their skin and turn back the clock. After a microneedling treatment, a patient can get right back to their typicaly activities and daily routine. However, keep in mind that there will be some tenderness and redness after a microneedling treatment. This will pass in one to two days. Avoid direct sun exposure for two weeks as your skin is healing.
Microneedling results are long lasting
Microneedling results take about two weeks to begin to appear. Underneath the skin, your body is rebuilding the structure and resilience of the skin, and regenerating new skin cells. As time passes and the new collagen and elastin have more time to continue to renew the skin, results become more and more significant. You will notice continuedimprovements for the following four months. These results last for 12-18 months, or even longer with a proper skincare regiment and a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Microneedling can address a wide range of skin concerns
Because microneedling stimulates the body’s natural regeneration abilities, this treatment can organically and effectively address many different skin concerns. Microneedling isn’t just about anti-aging, it’s about minimizing skin flaws or imperfection and achieving beautiful, radiant, and healthy skin for the long term. Skin concerns that microneedling effectively addresses are as follows:
- Uneven skin tone
- Rough or uneven skin texture
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Hyperpigmentation, including age and sun spots
- Early skin laxity
- Acne scars
- Lack of definition at the jawline
- Large pores
- Stretch marks
