As many people dream of youthful and glowing skin, microneedling has increasingly become a popular method of treating various skin conditions. This cosmetic treatment involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles but is minimally invasive, which is cost-effective rather than surgery. At the same time, it causes the body to make more collagen and elastin, which heals the skin and helps look younger. Truth be told, simulating an injury to the skin is one of the most efficient ways to increase collagen production. Microneedling does the part of delivering controlled micro-injuries to the skin by using tiny sterile needles. In this way, it triggers a natural healing response in which the skin creates new, healthy collagen to repair the injury.
What Are The Benefits of Microneedling?
As collagen production reduces with time, the skin suffers from wrinkles and fine lines, sagging, under-eye bags; the list is endless. Microneedling can solve these conditions and provide as many benefits for various skin types.
Microneedling Prevents Sign of Aging
Microneedling alleviates the appearance of existing wrinkles and helps prevent the formation of future fine lines. This treatment uses sterilized needles to rupture the skin, forming micro pricks, which enhance collagen and elastin production. Also, it keeps the skin young and nourished as it hydrates the skin and contributes to cell regeneration.
Removes Acne Scars
This procedure works excellent from years of acne that cause a light uneven texture. It also tends to work best on small scars, resulting in the skin’s tenting or pocking, except those that require stitches. Microneedling induces collagen to help remove these scars forever, considering that this collagen treatment works best for depressed scars. Another thing is, microneedling cannot cure raised scars as it already has an excess of collagen.
Reduces Appearance Of Stretch Marks
Stretch marks may appear due to sudden weight loss and gain, particularly pregnant women’s most common skin condition. It also happens during puberty or when you hit the gym to lose a few pounds quickly. Naturally, the skin has collagen that allows stretching to an optimum level. Still, stretch marks manifest on the skin after a certain point, all of which can be extremely difficult to treat.
Microneedling induces collagen generation that can improve the appearance of stretch marks, especially those that make a home around the breasts, thigh areas, and hips. Indeed, continued treatment will for sure remove all those notorious stretch marks in the body.
Sun exposure can cause hyperpigmentation due to the harmful UV rays that the skin gets. Microneedling can reduce pigmentation as collagen induces, which helps control wrinkles. It works magic too for sunburnt skin that cannot be treated with regular hydrating creams as it provides ample nourishment, which eventually reduces pigmentation and spots.
Some women suffer blackheads, especially those who have PCOS or hormonal acne. With the help of microneedling, it delivers controlled trauma as thousands of needle pokes liberate and knock out blackheads during the entire procedure. Soon after, a reduction in the total volume of blackheads on the face will be noticeable.
The controlled trauma and thousands of needle poke liberate and knock out blackheads during the entire procedure. The pores become smaller in about 3-4 weeks after the procedure due to the healing effects and revascularization. Since the reduction doesn’t last forever, the procedure has to be done again after 3-4 weeks.
Moreover, with the help of aftercare and Vitamin C serum, further reduction of blackheads and pore size might be possible.
Absorbs The Skincare Products Better
The skincare products dab onto the skin to work better as microneedling creates numerous micro holes in the skin that enable the creams or serums. When microneedling drilled invisible holes during the treatment, it allowed most skin products to penetrate the skin, achieving 100% benefit from the product used.
Helps Hair Growth
It effectively cures alopecia, which causes hair loss, while the procedure induces collagen that facilitates hair growth. Microneedling stimulates the dormant hair follicles, encouraging growth as those invisible holes in the scalp will allow better absorption of the hair products, and thereby, the results show on your scalp by the development of new baby hair.
Cures Skin Conditions
Microneedling helps those skin conditions anywhere in the body, enjoying its result, not just the face. It provides significant improvement in overall skin texture and tone aside from stimulating collagen and promoting younger-looking skin as the other benefit.
What To Expect During The Treatment?
Microneedling is exceptionally safe and painless suitable for all skin types with side effects that are few and extremely rare. The procedure may take 30 minutes to 1 hour and is best done by a licensed aesthetician to avoid a disaster in the treatment area. Prior to microneedling, topical anesthesia will be applied to the treatment area for comfortability. The hyaluronic acid serum will then be applied once thoroughly cleaned while the aesthetician glides the microneedling device in a precise pattern vertically over the skin.
Most importantly, there is no downtime, and the patient can resume most of the other normal activities after microneedling treatment. Most patients need 4-6 treatments to see a difference. Although there is no downtime after the treatment, it is vital to follow all post aftercare instructions given by the licensed aesthetician.
The Bottom Line
Before considering cosmetic surgery for antiaging and other concerns, microneedling is your best option for the skin’s fastest and most minor invasive treatments. As mentioned above, it ensures patients immediate results over scars, fine lines, and signs of aging. Overall, microneedling is an excellent tool for this goal and is worth investing in as it contributes to improving your skin while at the same time addressing the specific skin conditions that you might be having.
