Most adults hope and pray that as they grow out of their teen years, their skin miraculously clears up. But as you well know, that’s not always the case. Many women and men can develop blemishes well into their twenties, thirties, and even beyond! Yet unlike your teenage years, signs of aging start to creep up. Microneedling is a beauty treatment that can easily reduce all kinds of blemishes, leaving your skin clear, glowing, and beautiful!
How It Works
Microneedling works in a very simple way: it uses the healing ability of your own body to help rejuvenate and heal your skin. The treatment uses a device that contains many medical-grade fine needles. When the device is gently moved over your skin, these needles create what is known as microtrauma, or microscopic channels, in your skin. Your body will then recognize that these openings need healing. As such, fresh blood full of white blood cells will flood the area. Your skin will also start producing collagen to heal itself.
Microneedling can help heal and treat your blemishes by prompting your skin to begin healing itself. With the influx of collagen, your skin will be healthier and smoother. But the procedure also helps reduce blemishes by making it easier for your skin to absorb topical treatments. Essentially, microneedling create channels in your skin so that the skin care treatment is able to penetrate the deep layers of your skin, where it can do its best work!
Microneedling can also help reduce the look of acne scars. Basically, a scar is a buildup of collagen. When a blemish ruptures, it will damage the surrounding tissue. To heal the area, your skin will sometimes create too much collagen, which leads to a raised scar, or not enough collagen, which leads to a pockmarked scar. Microneedling can reduce that unhealthily collagen by wearing down your first layer of skin, while also prompting new collagen growth.
Other Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling also has a ton of other benefits. It can treat all of the signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. Most patients report that their skin is smoother and tighter after their microneedling treatment, especially after multiple sessions.
