There are lots of ways to improve the appearance of your skin these days, from creams to lotions to application tools and more. But, few methods give the glowing results you can get from microneedling.
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure where many tiny punctures are made into the superficial layers of the skin. This encourages the body to send more blood to the puncture sites to promote healing. More collagen is also sent to the punctured areas to repair the skin.
While increased blood flow and boosted collagen production are two awesome benefits by themselves, microneedling offers even more:
Increases skin thickness
The thinning of the skin as we age is a contributing factor to the appearance of wrinkles. Microneedling increases the thickness of the skin, especially with repeated treatments. The thicker skin doesn’t allow wrinkles to show as easily.
Reduces appearance of scars and stretch marks
The extra collagen produced due to microneedling often fills in skin depressions, like those seen in acne scarring or stretch marks. This won’t completely get rid of these depressions, but they will be much less noticeable.
Microneedling actually breaks down dark pigments in your skin so that your body can then flush them away, improving the tone of your skin.
Skin tightening is a benefit we all want with our facial treatments. The extra collagen produced by microneedling helps tighten the skin and leaves a more youthful outline.
