Are you looking to refresh your skin? Microneedling is a cost-effective treatment that provides incredible skin rejuvenation results. If you’re unsure about microneedling, learning more about the benefits may help you realize that it’s the right procedure for your skin.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling or collagen induction therapy is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment. The microneedling device has microscopic needles that create minor punctures in the skin and trigger collagen regeneration as the skin repairs. Microneedling works on all skin types and skin tones.
Depending on the depth of penetration, patients may experience mild swelling and peeling after microneedling.
What Are The Benefits Of Microneedling?
- Minimizes Signs Of Aging
The boost in collagen production after microneedling makes the skin plumper and tightener. This helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, shrink pores, and improve sagging skin. It’s therefore very beneficial for people concerned about the effects of aging on their skin.
- Diminishes Appearance Of Stretch Marks
Stretch marks are lines or grooves in the skin that develop when the skin stretches too quickly, usually as a result of puberty, pregnancy, or weight gain. Microneedling helps to heal the damaged connective tissue in the dermal layer of the skin that creates the stretch marks, making them less visible.
- Softens Scars
Microneedling softens the appearance of scars because it stimulates the production of new collagen which improves the texture of the skin, so scars are softer and less defined.
Microneedling also helps decrease sun damage, pigmentation, and age spots. It typically takes a series of treatments to achieve the desired improvements in the tone and texture of the skin with microneedling.
