10 Benefits of Microneedling Treatments



Many people work hard to have a smooth, clear, and even complexion. But even if you find products that nourish and protect your skin, some complexion problems are difficult to solve using skin care products alone. Microneedling is a treatment that can provide many benefits beyond those that you can achieve with your regular routine.

At A Younger You Medical Spa in Brookfield, WI, we provide many different anti-aging treatments that can keep your complexion radiant and your skin looking more youthful. Microneedling can be used as a treatment to target specific concerns, or it can boost the overall health of your skin by becoming a more regular part of your skincare routine.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a treatment that is used to help restore the surface of the skin and induce the production of collagen. This cosmetic procedure involves using a special device to create tiny punctures in the skin. This is done with the use of small needles located in a handheld device. The purpose of these tiny perforations is to initiate a healing response within your skin.

As your body heals the microchannels produced by the needles, healthy new skin can form, along with additional collagen and elastin. The result can be skin that is smoother and more evenly colored.

10 Microneedling Benefits

1. Promotes Collagen and Elastin Production

After you become an adult, your collagen and elastin production are likely to decrease at a rate of about 1% each year. This can result in skin laxity, wrinkles, and skin that isn’t as thick or hydrated. As a collagen production treatment, the increase of these important fibers in the treatment areas is one of the main microneedling benefits.

2. Reduces Acne Scars

Because collagen and elastin can be important for helping to heal scars and support the surface of the skin, we use microneedling for acne scars on a regular basis. We recommend several treatment sessions for patients who want to achieve smoother skin by minimizing acne scarring.

3. Suitable for Many Skin Types

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that can be suitable for people of all different skin types and tones. With the right recommendations from your doctor, this treatment can be suitable for those with sensitive skin, rosacea, darker skin tones, and more.

4. Improves Skin Texture

If you have concerns that impact the texture of your skin, microneedling can address many of them. Before and after microneedling, you may notice an improvement in the softness and smoothness of your skin. This treatment can benefit skin that is leathery or skin that is impacted by whiteheads and blackheads.

5. Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles

The extra collagen and elastin in your skin can help to make the skin firmer and support areas that have started getting fine lines and wrinkles because of the lack of underlying structure. MIcroneedling services can be a good way to address signs of aging in your skin.

6. Fades Sun Spots

Fading of sunspots is a common microneedling result. If you have dark spots from too much sun exposure, the healthy skin that can be produced after a microneedling treatment session can replace the skin with excess melanin and make coloration more even on your skin.

7. Suitable for Different Areas of the Body

While microneedling is a very common treatment for the skin on the face, it can also be used on other parts of the body. It can be helpful for tightening the skin on the abdomen or improving skin color and texture on the neck and décolletage. If you have an area in mind that you would like to improve, you can ask us about our microneedling options.

8. Improves Discoloration

Red or brown discoloration on the skin can often come from acne breakouts or from conditions such as rosacea. The microchannels caused by microneedling can stimulate healing in the skin without causing further damage. Microneedling results can also include skin that is much more even in color for people with many of these concerns.

9. Allows Products to Absorb Better

Microneedling can allow healing and hydrating products to absorb deeper and faster into the skin. Often, microneedling services can include serums and other products that can speed up your healing process and hydrate and protect your skin.

10. Offers an Additional Option

Not everyone is interested in products such as fillers, neuromodulators, or more invasive anti-aging treatments. Microneedling presents a minimally invasive treatment option that comes with minimal downtime.
