Continue reading to learn all about microneedling, including treatment indications and benefits.
What is Microneedling?
Microneeding is a noninvasive antiaging treatment that utilizes ultra-thin needles to create microscopic injuries in the skin.
In doing so, it initiates a wound healing effect and triggers the production of new collagen and elastin. This leads to intense remodeling of the skin, thereby reversing and preventing signs of aging.
What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?
One of the key advantages of microneedling is that it is nonsurgical and avoids incisions, general anesthesia, and downtime. It also provides collagen and elastin synthesis by activating the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
Accordingly, microneedling is an excellent option for patients that are averse to lasers, peels, or other thermal-based devices.
Studies have also shown that microneedling is equally effective in treating acne scars as fractional laser resurfacing. However, it is better tolerated, has fewer side effects, and less downtime than a laser treatment.
What Concerns Can Microneedling Address?
Many women and men turn to microneedling because it can target and treat a wide range of skin concerns. To start, the collagen-stimulating treatment successfully smooths fine lunes, crow’s feet, and deeper wrinkles to restore a youthful and radiant complexion.
Microneedling also uses longer needles, that can penetrate the dermis, in order to improve acne scarring.
Additionally, the procedure is well-suited for individuals who want to correct sun damage, diminish hyperpigmentation, and refine pores.
Finally, microneedling significantly increases absorption and efficacy of skincare products.
