Microneedling is a practice capable of combatting several skin issues primarily through promoting the production of collagen. The amount of collagen naturally declines as an individual age and depleting collagen levels cause wrinkles and other unwanted signs of aging.
Microneedling boosts the levels of collagen and reverses the visible effects of aging. Microneedling is performed by puncturing the skin with small needles. The skin is typically numbed to eliminate potential pain and discomfort. As a result of the small pinpricks in the skin, the body begins producing excess collagen and elastin to heal itself.
The body’s collagen production stimulates these effects to extend beyond healing the pin pricks and actually work to facilitate a higher rate of collagen and elastin production for restorative and youthful effects on the skin. The treatment only lasts between 10 and 20 minutes however, if anesthesia was received patients will have to factor in some downtime.
In some cases, multiple sessions are performed to achieve the best results. With each subsequent session, the needle is inserted deeper into the skin as the skin will have thickened and become more capable of withstanding deeper penetration.
There are different types of microneedling, which are outlined here:
Microneedling W/Growth Hormone: In addition to the needling to promote the skin’s natural healing properties, growth hormone is implemented to bring in new blood vessels, this will cause new skin cells to form, and further stimulate collagen synthesis.
Microneedling W/Laser Radiofrequency: This is a procedure that combines traditional microneedling with laser frequency to improve the firmness and quality of the skin. This is an excellent option for patients experiencing loss of skin firmness and density and is also capable of treating stretch marks and acne scars.
Microneedling is an excellent way to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal itself and recapture the benefits of a more youthful appearance and there are many benefits to the procedure. Collagen production is the most important benefit as it works to combat wrinkles by stimulating the skin to behave younger and facilitate recovery.
Collagen production combats wrinkles and lines as well as skin laxity and skin texture meaning it can smooth and tighten aged or sagging skin. Microneedling is capable of treating acne scarring as it is capable of breaking down scar tissue and having it rebuilt with the scarring partially or fully healed.
Microneedling is also capable of diminishing the appearance of unwanted stretch marks. Clients can begin to notice the results of microneedling immediately as skin appears radiant and plump, though the best results can take several weeks to appear.
There are a whole host of additional skin imperfections microneedling can assist with such as hyperpigmentation, sunspots, uneven skin textures, uneven skin tones, loss of elasticity, enlarged pores, and treating the fine lines before they turn into full-fledged wrinkles.
Depending on what patients are hoping to achieve from microneedling treatment and the condition of their skin they may wish to return for more or fewer appointments. Wrinkles or fine lines may take one or two sessions while burns and stretch marks can require more frequent appointments.
The aesthetic effects of microneedling can prove transformative and can boost self-confidence and promote body-image positivity as well, leaving patients happy with how they look and feel.
Microneedling heals fairly quickly with most patients feeling fully recovered within 24 hours. In some cases, temporary swelling or slight bruising can last for a couple of days.
Other than minor fleeting physical effects microneedling doesn’t require any active downtime meaning the procedure isn’t debilitating in any way.
The healthcare professionals who perform these medical aesthetic procedures may recommend a variety of lifestyle precautions to take to maximize the effectiveness of the treatment.
