Poking needles in my face can make me look better…? How?! Well, to understand the benefits of microneedling treatments, we will have to first explore what microneedling is, and why it is so popular.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling has become increasingly popular in recent years. This increase in popularity is probably attributed to the increasing demand for minimally invasive procedures. There are also many celebrities and influencers who are/have endorsed microneedling as their preferred treatment.
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a device with tiny, sterile needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin. The process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, which can lead to several benefits for the skin.
After a microneedling treatment, patients may experience some redness, swelling, and/or mild discomfort. These side effects will typically subside and resolve on their own after a few days. The results of microneedling can be seen over time as the body produces new collagen and elastin. Improvements in skin texture, tone, and firmness is commonly observed.
Benefits of Microneedling for the Skin
1. Increases Collagen Production
Microneedling stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential proteins that give the skin its strength and elasticity. As a result, microneedling can help to improve the appearance of fine line and wrinkles, and can make the skin appear firmer and more youthful.
2. Improves Skin Texture and Tone
Microneedling can help to improve the overall texture and tone of the skin. It can reduce the appearance of acne scars, hyperpigmentation and other types of scars and can improve the skin’s overall radiance and glow.
3. Enhances Absorption of Skincare Products
Microneedling creates small channels in the skin, which can help skincare products to penetrate more deeply and effectively. This can enhance the benefits of topical skincare products and lead to better results.
4. Minimal Downtime
Unlike some other cosmetic procedures, microneedling requires minimal downtime. Most patients can return to their normal activities within a day or two of the procedure, although some redness and mild swelling may occur.
5. Safe for All Skin Types
Microneedling is safe for all skin types including sensitive skin. It is a non-invasive procedure that does not involve the use of harsh chemicals or heat which can be damaging to the skin.
