Microneedling might sound scary. But the truth is that microneedling is a popular and safe minimally invasive treatment for a variety of skin concerns that can give you better skin.
Microneedling treats a host of skin problems by promoting collagen growth. Collagen is the protein in your skin that gives it volume, elasticity, and bounce. Age and scarring can reduce your body’s ability to produce collagen, which can make your skin saggy, wrinkled, or uneven over time.
With tiny needles, we create many small injuries to the surface of your skin. The injuries create microchannels that allow your skin to absorb healing serums, products and stimulate collagen production, which helps smooth and tighten skin.
The top 5 skin issues that microneedling can help
1. Microneedling for lines and wrinkles
One of the biggest benefits of microneedling is its ability to fight the signs of aging. Loss of collagen that comes with aging can make your skin appear sunken. Loose skin begins creating lines and wrinkles around your eyes, nose, and lips.
Microneedling boosts collagen production in your facial skin. The increase in collagen helps fill in the volume that your skin has lost. Collagen growth fills in the lines and wrinkles across your face. With microneedling, you’ll see diminished lines and wrinkles, and you may notice tighter skin, too.
2. Microneedling for uneven skin tone
Whether you suffer from uneven patches of redness, sun damage, brown spots, or other pigment issues, microneedling can help. Hyperpigmentation is the result of excessive melanin in the skin that builds up to create uneven patches. Microneedling works to encourage healthy collagen growth in its place.
If you’re frustrated by uneven skin tone, microneedling stimulates your skin to repair itself by rebuilding collagen and replacing the damaged cells. In some cases, patients with uneven skin tone can see improved results with additions like vitamin C serums to their microneedling treatments.
3. Microneedling for uneven skin texture
Rough patches and uneven skin texture are another common skin issue that microneedling can address. Uneven texture and enlarged pores can be frustrating and difficult to treat. The collagen stimulation that comes with microneedling helps resurface your skin and eliminates uneven texture. Microneedling smooths the surface of your skin and helps reduce the look of pores.
4. Microneedling for acne scarring
Acne scarring is a common skin concern affecting both men and women. In addition to being hard to get rid of, scars left behind by acne can be deep and very noticeable.
Microneedling addresses acne scars below the surface of your skin by promoting restorative collagen growth. Collagen diminishes the look of scars and helps heal the affected areas for smoother, more even skin. Patients with serious acne scarring may benefit from multiple treatment sessions.
5. Microneedling for dull skin
Dull skin can appear dry and lifeless. When excess skin cells build up on the surface, you can lose the look of youthful, fresh skin. Dull skin can make your face feel rough and look uneven.
Each microneedling procedure takes an avg. of 3o mins. This includes the time it takes to prepare your skin and perform the targeted microneedling procedure. Depending on your skin concerns, we may recommend multiple sessions so that you get the best results possible.
