We live in an age where it has never been easier to rejuvenate your skin and achieve a more youthful appearance.
Microneedling is one treatment that really stands out because of the many benefits it offers. Designed to invoke the skin’s healing response, microneedling involves using a small pen with over 10 needles to create micro injuries across the superficial layer of the skin.
This innovative and highly effective treatment treats everything from lines and wrinkles to acne and scars. If you’re not sure whether this is the right treatment for you, take a look at some of the key benefits before you make a decision.
7 Reasons Why Microneedling is So Popular
Immediately improve your skin’s quality and texture
In just an hour, your skin will start changing for the better. As the microneedles get to work, the skin immediately starts to heal itself by producing more collagen and elastin, both of which are essential to having healthy, supple skin. You will be able to see a noticeable difference directly after your microneedling treatment with Dr Michael Zacharia.
Reduce the appearance of scars
Acne scars are particularly difficult to treat but microneedling is an effective solution. Fibrosis is the process that your body goes through when it’s trying to heal the skin but sometimes the fibres that form are so strong that it pulls the skin down and creates scars. Microneedling helps break up the fibrosis beneath your skin, resulting in a smoother appearance.
Reduce the appearance of acne
Microneedling is able to treat acne by decreasing sebum production. Patients are even able to receive treatment while they’re having an active breakout, which should help reduce the severity of the breakout.
Get rid of blackheads
If you suffer from blackheads, microneedling is the ideal treatment for you. The treatment actually gets rid of black heads while the needles move across the surface of your skin and since it reduces the production of sebum, you can expect fewer blackheads after your treatment too.
Even out skin tone
If you’re struggling with hyperpigmentation or you simply want to even out your skin tone in general, microneedling can help. It is said that microneedling’s ability to increase the expression of matrix metalloproteinases is what reduces hyperpigmentation. Microneedling treatments that are combined with a vitamin C serum can also help balance melanin levels.
Exfoliate your skin
During a microneedling treatment, any dead skins that are present on the skin will be removed, leaving you with a smoother, more radiant appearance.
Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
Microneedling is also excellent for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As your skin heals from the microdamage caused by the pen, your skin releases growth factors that result in higher levels of collagen and elastin. New blood vessels will also form during this process, which help deliver additional oxygen and nutrients to your skin.
