Microneedling is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that’s quickly increasing in popularity. It is designed to capitalize on the body’s inherent ability to heal itself. This procedure triggers increased collagen production in the skin and the accelerated development of new and healthy skin cells. You can use regular microneedling treatments to limit the appearance of enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, age spots, sun spots, moderate acne scars and more.
How Microneedling Works
Microneedling is performed with a special device that has multiple tiny needles affixed to its surface. Before this tool is applied to the skin, the dermis is numbed to ensure patient comfort. As the microneedling tool is passed over the skin, it creates many small channels. The body responds instantly to the tiny micro-openings by expediting blood flow to the area, producing new skin cells and increasing the availability of skin-renewing collagen.
The Extended Benefits of Microneedling
As dead, damaged skin cells are replaced by new and healthy ones, you will see a noticeable decrease in fine lines, enlarged pores, acne scars and other skin issues. These treatments are also an effective way to fight off existing and future acne breakouts. Even after a microneedling treatment is complete and all of the micro-channels have effectively healed, however, the benefits of this procedure will continue on. That’s because the new collagen production will have an ongoing effect on the overall firmness, suppleness and health of the skin. This will create an increasingly youthful and more vibrant look overall.
