Microneedling is one of the hottest treatments available at medical spas today. It is a minimally-invasive treatment that uses a handheld device with tiny micro-needles in it to create microscopic channels in your skin. These channels stimulate your body’s healing process to provide better skin tone, more even texture and a reduction in many of the most common signs of skin aging.
This low-risk treatment is well-loved by many of our patients because it has almost no downtime and takes very little time to perform. Therefore, it is a good option for busy clients just like you who have packed schedules. The following four benefits of microneedling are some of the main reasons why we see this treatment used so frequently in our office. If you deal with one of these complaints, you may be able to benefit from microneedling as well.
Line and Wrinkle Treatment
Microneedling is most well-known for its ability to smooth away lines and wrinkles in the skin. It does this by engaging your body’s own healing processes. When the tiny channels are created in your skin, your body rushes to heal them. It sends blood that is rich in nutrients and growth factors to the area. This allows new skin cells to be born and also creates an influx of collagen in the area. As collagen increases, it plumps up the lines and wrinkles, causing them to smooth away.
Scar and Stretch Mark Reduction
In much the same way, we can also use microneedling to treat depressed scars. While it is not useful for keloid or hypertrophic scars, it can smooth out other forms of scars by increasing the collagen beneath them.
Other patients use microneedling as a preventative treatment against the most common signs of aging. Regular treatments can help you keep excellent skin tone and texture and give you a beautiful glow on your skin.
Topical Product Enhancer
Those tiny channels created by the microneedling device help the topical treatments that you already use to make it beneath the surface of the skin, where they can really work.
