Microneedling is a skin procedure that uses a special device to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in order to produce a more youthful appearance. The procedure is convenient and very simple. You can expect to see much younger-looking skin with minimal effort.
Lessens the Appearance of Scars and Stretch Marks
Acne and other scars can be softened through microneedling. It works when tiny micro-channels are made in the skin during the microneedling process. This breaks down the old tissue and boosts the natural healing response of your skin. Collagen and elastin production is triggered, leading to a new layer of healthier, fresher skin.
Results in Better Skin Texture
Along with the triggering of collagen and elastin, blood flow and nutrient delivery are also improved through this process. The result is skin that is plumper and brighter. You’ll notice the glow and fullness of your youth once again.
Microneedling decreases the production of sebum, the oil in your skin. This reduction can halt the formation of blackheads, acne and even cystic acne in some people. Microneedling can be performed during active breakouts, unlike many other cosmetic procedures. This treatment can be a great supplement to other methods you are using to address your acne issues. A bonus is that it also improves the appearance of acne scarring.
Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Microneedling is fantastic as an anti-aging treatment. It can definitely help you to look younger through the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. This happens in the same ways that the process addresses scarring. Growth factors are released as the upper layer, or epidermis, of skin is affected. When the new layer of skin is formed, you’ll notice fewer lines. It will also likely be firmer and plumper.
Evens Skin Tone
Uneven tone and hyperpigmentation can make the skin look dull and blotchy. Fortunately, microneedling can help with this as well.
