The Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling is a treatment that has taken the non-surgical cosmetic world by storm! Celebrities are getting this treatment as are everyday individuals. The reason why so many people are attracted to it is that they love the results they see. Microneedling is safe, effective, and it can be used to treat a number of issues affecting a person’s skin. What is great about this treatment is that just about anyone is a good candidate to receive benefits from it.

Microneedling works because it creates micro injuries. Micro-injuries are small injuries that are surrounded by healthy skin. When your skin experiences an injury, your body responds by flooding the injured area with compounds like collagen. Collagen is one of the basic building blocks of the skin. Unfortunately, as we get older our skin starts to produce less collagen, and this is one of the reasons why our skin starts to age. The collagen that floods the area is used to repair the micro-injuries. When your body has a substantial amount of collagen, it keeps your skin looking youthful and healthy.

Microneedling can even be augmented by adding topical products. Products, such as growth factors or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) also stimulate collagen, and when used in combination with microneedling take the treatment to the next level. During the treatment, your skin has multiple tiny canals that growth factors or PRP can filter through, allowing them to affect the deeper layers of your skin. This means even better results than with microneedling alone.

Whether you are doing microneedling on its own or adding a topical product, there is minimal downtime. When we look at all the benefits of this treatment, it is clear to see why more and more people are opting for it.
