We all want smooth, toned and wrinkle-free skin in a non-invasive, pain-free and efficient way. Besides the fact that Gwyneth Paltrow and Naomi Watts swear by it, there are other reasons why microneedling is the way to go.
- Increasing Collagen
Facial wrinkles, sun damage and thinning skin are primarily due to a loss of collagen and elastin. Microneedling produces natural collagen and elastin in the skin, significantly improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. More collagen and elastin helps thicken and tighten skin, therefore reducing the look of thinning skin, which is often associated with aging.
- Minimal Pain
Microneedling involves a microneedle roller that makes tiny tears across the top layer of the skin. These tears are so tiny that they can’t be seen and they stimulate the skin’s natural repair mechanisms. The feeling associated with microneedling is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable. Many patients heal within 24 hours.
- Reduced Hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation happens when there is an unusual production of melatonin in the skin. Acne, wounds or increased exposure to the sun usually bring on hyperpigmentation. Microneedling sheds the top layer of skin, increases absorption and produces normal melanocyte. Microneedling is safe for those with a darker skin tone.
