With the popularity of injectables, many individuals are looking for ways to maintain a youthful appearance without the risks and costs associated with injectables. A new minimally-invasive micro-needling treatment is one such solution.
Microneedling is a procedure in which tiny needles are used to create hundreds of punctures in the top layers of your skin. The puncture wounds encourage growth in collagen and new skin cells and can be used to treat fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars. The results are smoother, more even-toned, and more youthful-looking skin.
Microneedling is effective in reducing the appearance of sun damage, particularly hyperpigmentation and age spots. If you have a blotchy, brownish complexion, micro-needling and its ability to stimulate new collagen and skin cells can reinvigorate your look and even out your tone.
As you get older, your skin loses its elasticity, so it appears lax. Aging skin may also look dull and lack a lustrous glow. Microneedling can change this.
The buildup of collagen that occurs in response to tiny wounds can improve skin structure to fight sag. Plus, just 24 hours following a session, you experience a radiant, fresh glow.
Microneedling’s effects are comparable to laser and chemical peel treatments but without long downtime. You can enjoy a glowing complexion 24-72 hours after micro needling, but with laser resurfacing, your recovery may take three to 10 days. Your complexion needs 14-21 days to bounce back after a medium or intensive peel.
