The skin rejuvenation procedure of microneedling is performed using a tool with many tiny points that gently cause micro-wounds in the skin’s surface, resulting in the commencement of the body’s natural healing process. This healing process stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in order to heal the skin, both of which are vital ingredients in having a beautifully smooth, plump, and youthful complexion.
Microneedling is commonly used as a skin rejuvenation treatment, sometimes combined with other serums or topical treatments, due to its efficacy in reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, and scarring, as well as treat hyperpigmentation or any other concerns regarding the tone or texture of the skin. Essentially, it is a great skin rejuvenation treatment for reversing the effects that aging has had on the skin by diminishing the appearance of creasing and discoloration that has developed over many years. It is not only great for anti-aging treatments though, as many younger patients have turned to microneedling due to its ability to reduce pore size, ability to reduce the appearance of rosacea, and increase the efficacy of topical acne treatments.
Microneedling is an excellent option for those who are in search of a minimally-invasive, pain-free skin rejuvenation treatment that is incredibly effective at improving the overall texture and tone of the skin and supporting the efficacy of serums and other topical treatments by allowing the skin to absorb them more effectively. The process of microneedling is done using very tiny needles gently protruding into the layers of the skin to stimulate increased production of collagen and elastin through the body’s natural healing process and also offer a more direct channel for high-quality skin care products to be absorbed into the skin.
Since it uses the body’s natural healing process, it is a very safe and effective treatment and can be used to treat a wide variety of skin conditions or concerns. Additionally, the results for microneedling are longer than many other skin care treatments as they last at least 4 to 6 weeks, but many patients are able to enjoy the benefits of increased collagen and elastin production for much longer.
One of the most significant benefits of microneedling that makes it stand apart from treatments that offer comparable results is that it does not carry any risk of discoloration of the skin. Most of the other treatments that work by causing micro-wounds in the layers of skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production do so using infrared, radiofrequency, or other heat, light, or laser-based procedures. This means that it is a much safer option for those with darker skin tones as the other options carry a higher risk of causing discoloration to darker skin pigmentation. Another benefit to micro-needling is that it is able to treat a vast variety of skin conditions or concerns, whether they are a result of the effects of aging on the skin, scarring, or really any other skin condition that leads to hyperpigmentation or changes in the texture or tone of the skin. Since it breaks the surface of the skin, microneedling also is very beneficial in helping other products work more efficiently by being absorbed much more easily into the surface of the skin.
Since microneedling works by causing micro-wounds in the skin, there should be enough time in between appointments to allow for the skin to heal entirely before the next treatment is done, requiring at least one month in between appointments to allow for the full benefits of the collagen and elastin production before the process is started again.
Clients who choose to receive regular microneedling treatments as part of their regular skincare routine will often get it done every 4 to 6 weeks by a specialist. After a few sessions, most patients will be able to increase the time between appointments to every 6 months or so just to sustain the beautiful results. However, every patient will respond a bit differently and may experience a slightly different timeline in the longevity of results that they have, but your specialist will be able to provide more accurate information after the consultation once they are familiar with your skin concerns and conditions.
