What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a treatment option that involves using a number of small needles to puncture the skin. It is a minimally invasive procedure that involves no recovery time, although you might notice some redness and swelling during the first 24 hours. The small needles puncture the skin, and this causes damage to the outer layer of skin cells. This damage encourages the skin to produce new cells, as well as substances like collagen and elastin.
So, what are the biggest benefits of microneedling?
Well, there are many benefits of microneedling. These include:
- Tackling fine lines and wrinkles- fine lines and wrinkles occur when the skin can no longer return to a previous position, when forming an expression, like frowning or smiling. Instead, the skin will become stuck in one place, creating fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling these problem areas, such as the forehead or around the eyes, can replace the collagen in these areas, leading to fuller, firmer skin with more movement. This means that your fine lines and wrinkles will be much less visible.
- Increasing collagen production- Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy. This is because the small amount of skin damage promotes the growth of more collagen. Collagen is a substance that the body naturally produces, but this production slows down as part of the natural ageing process. Collagen usually provides the skin with volume and firmness, and less collagen leads to sagging skin, or skin that appears less plump.
- Transforming imperfections- imperfections such as sun damage, acne scars, and large pores can be addressed with a good microneedling treatment. This is because many of the imperfections that lead to uneven skin tone, or skin damage, appear only on the outer layers of skin. This means that by promoting the growth of new skin cells, to replace the ones that are damaged, you can reduce the appearance of a wide range of skin complaints, and even remove some of these altogether.
