When it comes to plastic surgery, it is always important to consider how treatments can help patients achieve long-lasting results. While cosmetic enhancements can work wonders, many effective procedures today work in tandem with your biology. Microneedling combines the power of modern technology with clinical expertise to use your body’s miraculous healing abilities to improve your skin.
Microneedling uses, as its name implies, extremely small needles to create injuries on your skin. These injuries will heal by themselves — that is the beauty of the immune system at play. As these extremely small tears in the skin recover, your body will produce vital proteins that play a large role in skin appearance: collagen and elastin.
More collagen means tighter, firmer skin with fewer wrinkles and imperfections; more elastin offers additional support, less sagging, and greater stretch without folding.
Microneedling restores old collagen fibers while significantly generating more type I, III, and VIII collagen to improve your skin’s appearance.
The microneedling process may sound painful, but patients are kept comfortable the entire time thanks to topical anesthesia. The microscopic punctures made to your skin are invisible — but they create a ripple effect under the surface that leads to all-natural rejuvenation.
What Can Microneedling Treat?
There are a variety of skin-related concerns microneedling can address:
- Fine lines
- Uneven skin texture
- Age spots
- Mild to moderate acne scars
- Mild skin laxity
- Stretch marks
New innovations have made microneedling more effective than ever; most importantly, it is a fantastic skin rejuvenation treatment for individuals with darker skin, who have traditionally been unable to safely receive many other popular treatments without risk of permanent skin damage.
